Where are the spark plugs located on a 2006 pacifica 24 valve 3.5 l


HI. Your spark plugs are located and inserted into each cylinder location, just under the respective ignition coil. This engine is designed for a Coil on Plug setup. The ignition coils are attached to each plug in the engine. Once you have removed each plugs respective coil,which is located directly on top of each plug, Then will you notice the plug. When removing the front plugs, be sure to remove the intake manifold to gain full access.

NOTE- Always remove the ignition coil assembly by grasping at the spark plug boot, turning the assembly 1/2 turn and pulling straight back in a steady motion. Only then will you gain access to the plug that is placed in that particular cylinder.

I need to know how to seperate my transmission from my block


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION C6
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. From in the engine compartment, remove the two upper converter housing-to-engine bolts.
  3. Disconnect the neutral switch wire at the in-line connector.
  4. Remove the bolt securing the fluid filler tube to the engine cylinder head.
  5. Raise and support the truck on jackstands.
  6. Place the drain pan under the transmission fluid pan. Starting at the rear of the pan and working toward the front, loosen the attaching bolts and allow the fluid to drain. Finally remove all of the pan attaching bolts except two at the front, to allow the fluid to further drain. With fluid drained, install two bolts on the rear side of the pan to temporarily hold it in place.
  7. Remove the converter drain plug access cover from the lower end of the converter housing.
  8. Remove the converter-to-flywheel attaching nuts. Place a wrench on the crankshaft pulley attaching bolt to turn the converter to gain access to the nuts.
  9. With the wrench on the crankshaft pulley attaching bolt, turn the converter to gain access to the converter drain plug. Place a drain pan under the converter to catch the fluid and remove the plug. After the fluid has been drained, reinstall the plug.
  10. On 2WD drive models, disconnect the driveshaft from the rear axle and slide shaft rearward from the transmission. Install a seal installation tool in the extension housing to prevent fluid leakage.
  11. Disconnect the speedometer cable from the extension housing.
  12. Disconnect the downshift and manual linkage rods from the levers at the transmission.
  13. Disconnect the oil cooler lines from the transmission.
  14. Remove the vacuum hose from the vacuum diaphragm unit. Remove the vacuum line retaining clip.
  15. Disconnect the cable from the terminal on the starter motor. Remove the three attaching bolts and remove the starter motor.
  16. On 4WD drive models remove the transfer case.

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.

Replace Spark Plugs


What size engine have your behicle?

2.2L Engine
  1. Remove the ignition coil housing.
    NOTE Remove any water and debris from the spark plug holes before spark plug removal with compressed air. Remove the spark plugs with a spark plug socket.
  2. Inspect the spark plugs.
To install:
  1. Gap the spark plug, using round wire type spark plug gap gauge. Adjust the spark plug gap to 0.045 in. (1.14mm).
    WARNING DO NOT coat the spark plugs with anti seize compound. Over torquing could occur and damage to the cylinder head threads may result.
  2. Install the spark plugs with a spark plug socket. Tighten to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
  3. Install the ignition coil housing.


2.4L Engine
The spark plugs on this engine are located under the ignition coil and module assembly. To gain access to the spark plugs, the coil and module assembly must be removed. On the 2.4L (VIN T) engines, the spark plugs are platinum and require replacement every 100,000 miles (160,900 km) or 60 months which ever comes first.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the 4 bolts retaining the Electronic Ignition (EI) coil/module/cover assembly (depending upon vehicle application), then detach the electrical connector. Remove the assembly by pulling it straight up away from the engine.

    Fig. To remove the cover, unfasten the four bolts, then pull the assembly straight up from the engine
  3. If the connector(s) sticks to the spark plug, use spark plug connector removing tool J-36011 or equivalent, and a twisting motion to detach the connector(s) from the plugs.
  4. Clean any dirt away from the spark plug recess area.
  5. Remove the spark plug using the proper size socket, extensions and universal joints, as necessary. Hold the socket or the extension close to the plug with your free hand, as this will help lessen the possibility of applying a shear force which might snap the plug in half.
To install:
  1. Lubricate the threads lightly with an anti-seize compound, then start the four spark plugs by hand. Tighten the plugs to 14 ft. lbs. (19 Nm).
  2. If removed, install any the plug boot connectors that may have stuck to a spark plug to the EI assembly.
    NOTE Check to make sure the spring terminal is inside the boot.
  3. Install the EI coil/module/cover assembly to the engine, while carefully aligning the boots with the spark plug terminals, by pushing the assembly straight down.
  4. Apply Loctite®thread locking compound, or equivalent to the cover bolts. Install the bolts and tighten to 16 ft. lbs. (22 Nm).
  5. If removed, engage the ignition cover electrical connectors.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable.

I really hope helped with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.
