I went on line and found some special tools for removing hard to get to plugs. One was a wobble-joint T-handle, the other was an 16" extention 3/8" socket with a 30 degree wobble. I removed both front wheels, mover the splash guard material out of the way, and was able to access the plugs. I needed both tools to remove the plugs.

Easiest access to replace #1,3 ,5 spark plugs on 3.4 lit v-6?


There really is not easy access. You will have to climb on the car motor and follow the wires down to the plugs. Use a 3/8" socket with a spark plug boot and swivel. It will make things easier.

Replacing spark plugs


Not exactly sure what you need?
Standard Rules:
Use a Spark Plug Socket to remove and install Spark Plugs.
Replace (remove) one Wire at a time from one Spark Plug.
Replace One Spark Plug at a time. Use Anti-Seize Grease applied moderately to the threads on the new Spark Plug.
Using a Socket (with a extension) START all installations using your hands. This prevents cross-threading and stripping of the threads inside the Heads.
Standard Torque 15-20 ft-lbs.
Replace the One Wire connection to that One Spark Plug.
Replace that One Wire connection to the Ignition Coil.
Go onto the next Spark Plug using the above Rules.
Repeat.

For the 3.4L V6:
Firing Order:
1-2-3-4-5-6
Cylinders:
......(back)
1.......3.......5
2.......4.......6
......(front)
Ignition Coil Connections:
............(back)

How do i change the spark plugs on a 1993 honda civic lx


You'll need a feeler gauge, a 5/8th inch socket and at least a 6 inch extension, a rachet, and an extendable magnet. Remove 1 spark plug wire boot, try turning or twisting to boot to disconnect. Remove the plug, use the magnet to get the plug out once it is unscrewed. Some spark plug sockets have a rubber peice that helps hold on to the plug when removing.

I tried changing my sparks plugs


Just a spark plug socket 5/8 or 13/16 inch available at your auto parts store; v-6 or v-8
If you can not remove the spark plug wires you need to wiggle and turn them to get them off ; be careful not to much twisting and pulling or you may damage the spark plug wires, sometimes a u shaped tool; under the boot helps .

Changing spark plugs


look under hood..you will see wires coming from distributor cap on top into your motor..if its an 8 cylinder there will be 4 in the back and 4 in the front.6 cylinder-3 in front 3 in back.get a 5/16 spark plug wrench and socket.you will need extension to reach back ones.if you bought new wires from parts store it will be even easier to find where plugs are located because you can compare the ones you bought and easier find the wires under the hood.the wire gets fatter as it goes into the motor.grab the fat part firmly and pull it off.boom theres your spark plugs.use your spark plug socket(5/16) with extension/ratchet and turn the plug until it comes out.do not break the plug or it will not come out.when you put a new one in screw it hand tight then 1 crank tight with the ratchet.when you change your wires do them one at a time as to avoid switching the wires up.on top of the distributor cap(where the wires lead to) there will be numbers as to what wire is for what cylinder...change plugs/wires 1 at a time dont take off more than 1 wire at a time!hope this helped!

Unplug connector from each ignition coil. qty 6. 3. remove 2 hold down bolts per ignition coil. 10mm socket. 4. remove ignition coil, lifting straight up. 5. Spark plug is now accessible, use deep well 5/8 spark plug socket to remove.
