Need more info! Which engine do you have?? I would guess at a quad engine since you can see the V-6 plugs!! There is a cover that says QUAD 4 on it. There are 4 bolts that hold the cover down that need to come out, and 4 connectors that are the plug wires that need to come off, then you can change the plugs. On the older quad engines, the plugs were known for pulling the treads out of the cylinder head! If you have a plug that is exceptionally tight, don't remove it unless you know what your doing! It can result in cylinder head replacement!! Good luck!!

What is needed for a tune up?


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. For a tune up, you would need to change spark plugs, coils, distributor cap, coil pack, and wires. You would change the air filter and the fuel filter also. Change your pcv valve as well. You can also change all your fluids and filters, such as oil, coolant fluid, and transmission fluid.

What parts do i need to buy for a tune up on a 2001 gmc yukon


For just a standard maintenance tune up you will want:
Oil and filter
Plugs and wires
Air filter
If you want to get really nitty gritty you can get a transmission filter and some tranny fluid.
And I usually run a can of "Sea Foam" through the gas tank for cleaning the injectors

If you go into Advance, or Auto Zone they will get everything I listed above for you. Be sure when doing the plugs and wires that you replace one at a time "wire and plug" if you pull them all off at the same time you won't know where they go when you are ready to put the new ones on.

The only thing to be weary is make sure to as if your vehicle has an exterior trans filter. If not dont worry about the trans filter unless you are mechanically inclined and can take the pan off the transmission and replace the gasket, drain the fluid etc. The internal filters and a flush should be done by a mechanic.

What does a major tune up for a 2004 chevy impala consist of? What should be done and needs to be done?


New spark plugs, oil and oil filter, transmission flush and fill, fuel filter, air filter, coolant flush and fill, clean throttle body plate and bore, clean the MAF sensor, replace any loose or cracked vacuum lines, PCV valve, new air filter, new battery.

99% of the time all you should ever need for a tune up is new spark plugs, and a clean air filter and throttle body. But since your inquiry indicated "major" I gave it more critical thought.

I have an uneven idleing problem in my 1993 plymouth-colt vista 2.4l , changed spark plugs, wires,rotor & disributer cap


MAKE SURE THE MAF plug is properly connected at the air filter housing- then check the idle air control motor assy. on the throttle body.Then remove and clean your dirty EGR valve- which is stuck open and allowing EGR at idle...which is not supposed to happen...

1989 ford f-150 not starting, new plugs wires, turns over, no start, maybe unburned fuel?


If it turns over the problem is either the spark plugs or the fuel filter or fuel pump. Begin by checking the spark plugs and changing the fuel filter.

01 ford ranger 4x4 4.0V6-- rough idle like it wants to cut off. loses power or studders under acceleration. struggles to get up to 55 or 60


I agree. Try replacing the spark plugs, install new spark plug wires, change the air filter, change the fuel filter, and test the battery and alternator. Run a bottle of fuel system cleaner and water remover through it. To replace the spark plugs you'll most likely have to go through the wheel wells cause of their hard accessibility from the top. The fuel filter is located on the inside of the frame on the driver's side. Hope this helps. God bless

try to have your intake manifold and air filter cleaned. Also, try to replace the fuel filter. these are usually the culprits for the problem that you are experiencing.
