How do i change the spark plugs in a 2003 chevy malibu?

On this model it has a 3.1 liter v-6 the coil pack is near the firewall and coil pairing (firing order) 1-4,2-5,3-6 the front cylinders are the easy to replace that 2,4,6 and the rears are 1,3,5 starting from the fan belt . suggest using your phone to take several pictures so you do not get the wires mixed up. most of the wires have a metal housing surrounding the plug boot this is to be installed on the new wires. as engines heat up and cool down this wires are like welded to the spark plug. so pulling and twisting the ends is normal (of coarse swearing is involved also) After replacing the spark plugs remember to put a silicone grease inside the spark plug boot for easier removal next time you decide to change the spark plugs

Check for fuel, spark, and then compression. Fuel problems can be pump, pump relay, fuse, filter, line, etc. Spark problems can be distributor module, distributor, coil packs, power to distributor or coil packs, plug wires. Compression problems would be piston rings, piston walls, piston rods.

How to change spark plugs in a v6 2001 eclipes

get a socket wrench extension and ratchet to fit plugs bu plugs,they'er usually preset but get the parts guy tto show you how to set them it's simple. do one at a time so that you don't mix the wires up,the order is important, set the ratchet to turn counter clockwise and unscrew plug, when putting the new on in tighten moderately dont over tighten. when starting the plug in the hole be sure to make sure you start it in straight or you'll strip the hole then you're in real trouble
