Missing a digit from the VIN. Regardless, count ten digits from the right. If it is an S, then you have a 24 valve.

On this 2001 grand Am 2.4 what do you set spark plugs on.

On the 2001 Grand Am, there is an INFORMATION STICKER, usually located on the side of the engine well, which lists firing order, plug gap, and other pertinent information. If this sticker is missing, you will need to contact GM for information by VIN number.

There should be an EPA sticker somewhere in the engine compartment, which will show vacuum line routing, firing order, and spark plug gap. If that sticker is missing, you may need to contact a Lexus dealership, give them your VIN number, and have them provide the information for you.

How would I know if my 97 mercury sable is a 12 or 24 valve?

The vin number has a letter or number which indicates engine size and type. I think its the 8th digit of your vin on a merc. Call any for or mercury or ford dealer and ask for the parts department. Give them your vin number and they will answer your question. ( Go ahead and have one of the 3 gurls do it because it makes the guys feel smart ) Autozone can also answer this question but due to their lack of training at times you best call 3 autozones to get the correct answer.

You do not have a 24 valve. The U in your VIN signifies a SOHC. If it were an S, you would have the 24 DOHC.
