How to remove spark plugs on '93 cadillac devil


THE FRONT ONES ARE EASY. THE ONES NEAR THE FIREWALL ARE THE TOUGH ONES USUALLY NOT A DO IT YOURSELF PROJECT, AS YOU NEED TO REMOVE THE TOP MOTOR MOUNT AND ROLL THE ENGINE FORWARD TO GAIN ACCESS.

How to change spark plugs in a 2001 chevy impala 3.8 l v six


The main problem with the 3.8L plugs are the back 2 plugs on the passenger side.
It can be done without moving the engine, but extremely difficult.

The best thing to do is tilt the motor a little. It's easier than it sounds. Most people use a tiedown strap to roll the engine forward, after you remove the top motor mounts (just behind the radiator).

I prefer to use a floor jack and a piece of wood under the oil pan. Remove the upper motor mounts and jack the engine up a little to roll it forward towards the radiator. The rear plugs should be accessible.

Drop the drivebelt by swinging the tension-idler with a crescent wrench and popping the belt off the alternator pulley.

Dis-connect the battery.

Roll the electrical connection boot back to get access to the connectors and remove.

Back out the top mounting bolt (it may be stubborn, don't be afraid to put weight on it) and swing unit out to get easier access to the lower mount.
Drop the new unit in place and start the lower and upper mount bolts...re-connect the electricals...tighten the mounting bolts.
Swing the tension-idler to re-mount the belt.

re-connect the battery.

Cant find the spark plugs


Here's a link that will help you. I've included the info that you need to locate the plugs below. Good luck!

http://www.ehow.com/how_4484637_replace-spark-plugs-oldsmobile-alero.html

To gain access to the spark plugs and spark plug wires do the following. In a 2.4 liter engine, remove the ignition coil and module assembly from the top of the engine to gain access. In this Alero model's engine, the spark plugs run down the center of the engine. In a 3.1 liter engine, remove the air cleaner to gain access. The spark plugs are located next to the engine oil reservoir. For a 3.4 liter engine, remove the windshield wiper module cover and rotate the engine for service access. For a 2.2 liter engine, the spark plug wires are located across the top of the engine and require no components to be removed for access to the spark plugs.
