The easiest way to get at them is through the wheel wells. Jack up the side of the vehicle you want to change plugs on to gain some extra clearance in the wheel well area. Remove the inner fender liner (floppy rubber part held to the inner fender with the plastic retainers). You will then be able to see the spark plugs/wires. a spark plug socket, swivel, extension, and ratchet will make the job go by quickly.

The middle cylinder on the drivers side can be a real bear since the steering shaft runs right in front of it. They make a spark plug socket just for this cylinder or you can use a regular spark plug socket, a short wrench, and a pry bar to get it to break loose.

If your not familiar with changing plugs I would not attempt number 5 yourself (the one behind the steering shaft). You could easily break it and end up in a pickle!

Other wise do them one at a time making sure to put the plug wire back on as soon as the new plug is installed to avoid mixing them up.

Good luck.

    The above is not true. It is very simple to replace the spark plugs on the 2002 Bravada. It is all under the hood and there are several videos on Youtube to help guide you.

SOURCE: Where is radiator drain plug on 2002 olds bravada?

radiator plugs are on the backside of the radiator.  sometimes you need to remove some covers to get to it.  also it may be easier to simply remove the bottom hose to drain the coolant.
When you receive advice from this website you have to understand that without the item in front of us, we are only able to provide "a best guess" as to what the problem might be based on you description of the defect.  If you haven't described a clear and precise description of the defect you decrease the chances of an accurate reply.  Thank you.

How do I change wires and plugs on a 2002 oldsmolmile bravada with a 4.2 litre engine ?


Hey Arnold,
First, you need to get a precut set of wires and a set of new spark plugs. It will be proficient to change one wire and one spark plug at a time... this will prevent a mix-up and cross-up of wires.. You will know which size spark plug wrench when you get the new plugs.. They will be either 5/8" or 18mm or 13/16".
Take your time and you can do this!!!

Bravada coil


The GM products such as the olds bravada has a problem with oil getting into spark plug area where the coil pack is bolted down, the coil pack and plug are emerced in oil and causing the coil pack to misfire..to check this have the codes read to determine what coil pack it is..and remove it by removing the bolt holding it in place..if there is oil it will be right there to the top in many cases. Take a paper towel or something to sponge the oil out and clean the spark plug connector, no need to remove the plug and replace the coilpak with a new one...this is a problem but not real serious..suggest removing the other good coils and clean the plug area and plug Then replace the good ones..or if you wish replace with new...oil is from valve/cam shaft cover gaskets bad or loose..you can try and tighten the securement bolts or have a garage mechanic take a look...good luck

Does the bravada have spark plug wires going to the spark plugs


Yes.

Would recommend that you go to your local auto parts store and get a Haynes Manual for your vehicle type. The manual would have all the information you need for your particular vehicle.

Hope this helps.
