Question about 1987 Chevrolet Cavalier 4 Door

1 Answer

The cap seems to be behind the engine when

We replaced the wire and plugs the wires went to the plug and then connected to the cap in the bottom rear of the engine. I could get my hand up to reattach to cap but it would be impossible to take off distributor cap.. What is the trick or how is this done there is not enough room to fit a tool or even see the cap clearly.

Sounds like the problem has been resolved. Clear the codes and see what happens. BTW, you will need to pull the plenum completely off the engine in order to service the rear plugs. I would wait until one of the rear coils fails, and one will, and then take care of the coils and plugs at the same time.

No start with new wires,cap,rotor,plugs.


Check to see if you inadvertantly disconnected the power to the distributor. There is a plug that goes to the base of it.

Spark plugs replecement


I replaced my spark plugs just recently on our V-6, hope you have long thin hands. The plugs & coils on the front half are under the decorative cover. Remove with an allen wrench. Take off the coil & disconnect the wire connections (Note: these coils are fro the front and rear plugs, that way you do not have rear coils to remove, thank god). Pull out the plug wire cap, use the cap not the wire, its easy on the front.....the back half gets fun. Use an extension on your plug removal socket and take out he plug. Replace the plug and put it all back, repoeat for the front three. The back three are located behind the intake manifold, gonna have to do a lot of feeling and reaching around the intake. Again remember pull on the cap not the wire, if you pull the wire out.........gonna have to get new ones. The left most rear plug was the hardest for me to reach lots of stuff in the way, A few choie words and some beer and after a while I got it. Have fun every thing went well after I got it out.

Service Engine Soon


make sure to check the firing order, that means every plug wire has to go to a specific spark plug, if you unplug all or more than one plug wire at same time, you might mix it, and that should be all your problem just get a firing order specifications and have it done.
