Question about 2001 Cadillac DeVille
Where or how do I find the spark plugs in a 2001 cadillac deville dhs
Changing spark plugs in your Cad is not an easy thing. I tried it using the chiltons manual and it took five hours. Just in case you want to try it yourself you will need to start by removing the engine cover (two screws easy to locate). Next step is the tricky and tedious part. A black cylider with small vacuum tubes located at the rear center next to firewall needs to be removed. It is attached to the engine by an somewhat difficult to reach bolt and a almost impossible lower bolt that can be acessed underneath if you can find it and have hand of a ten year old. I removed it from bottom of vehicle than tightened it after from the top this is by far the most difficult of the process watch your knuckles. This vacuum valve is connected to a silver hose which needs to be unscrewed to remove valve two screws attach it from the bottom. This is another difficult one. Make sure the your socket is firmly onto the wrench, one socket remains hidden after it fell off, making a extra trip to the store neccasary after losing it. Move valve out of the way as best you can and what remaing are 8 bolts holding on the "ignition coil assembly". These shoul be taken out in a "W" pattern: top bottom top bottom. Remove these and remove panel another very tight fit. Remove spark plug boots and take out spark plugs and keep in order so that spark plug damage can be assessed according to corrisponding cyclider. Repeat for front plugs and reverse steps to reassemble. Spark plugs come pregaped. Start with the rear plugs, they are the most difficult, and you have a better idea how much time it will take.

If you take the 4 sub frame bolts loose and drop down and rotate the engine forward you will have more room to work
