I need to replace the spark plugs and wires on my 1995 pontiac sunfire 2.2 L. I have the spark plug removal figured out but not the spark plug wires how do you get to the start of the plug it goes behind? do you have to remove anything to have access to it?
WEll u dont need to remove anything This is what i did lift your car up with a jack. where you oil filter is you will see you plug wires running into your (ICM) Ignition Module unplug them and slide them to the top of your motor. dont get them mixed up otherwise your timeing will be messed up and your car wont start. on the ICM from the top to bottom the plug numbers are 2,3,1,4 and on top of the moter from left to right 1,2,3,4 just make for sure u have the right order..

Code C1254 appears to be a chassis code which should not cause a no start condition.
You should probably check to see if the crankshaft position sensor is connected if it was disconnected while removing the oil pan. Then , I would check to see if the secondary ignition system is providing spark at the spark plugs. To do this , connect a test spark plug to one of the existing spark plug wires and grounding the shell of the spark plug. You will probably need an assistant to crank the engine while you look for spark -.. If it does have spark , reconnect the spark plug wire to the spark plug and try a small amount of carb. spray ( 1 to 2 seconds ) at the throttle intake to see if the engine starts for a few seconds. If the engine uses a Mass Airflow Sensor be sure to reinstall air intake snorkel before attempting to start engine.This will tell you if you have a fuel delivery problem or not.
I hope this helps ya.
See Figures 1 and 2 To avoid confusion, remove and tag the spark plug wires one at a time, for replacement.
If a distributor is not keyed for installation with only one orientation, it could have been removed previously and rewired. The resultant wiring would hold the correct firing order, but could change the relative placement of the plug towers in relation to the engine. For this reason it is imperative that you label all wires before disconnecting any of them. Also, before removal, compare the current wiring with the accompanying illustrations. If the current wiring does not match, make notes to reflect how your engine is wired.
Hello: If it is a EcoTec engine it does not have plug wires, On the top of the valve cover there is a plate, on the drivers side there is a electrical connector. Remove it. Remove the cover (6 bolts or may be 8) pull up on the cover, there are boots that connect to the spark plugs. The spark plugs are in the cylinder head under the cover.
well first of all you have to remove the black cover on your engine..... it will have writing on it ex: ectech 2.2. you will need to remober the throttle wire off the clip and remove the clip... after that there will be 4 10mm bolts on the cover... remove them... you will need to pull the cover off.After that u will see the plug wires and the plugs... the plugs r 5/8...... under the cover ,or the top intake header .
.Remove the wire from the plug take out the old one replace it with the new one and put the wire back on..do only one at a time so you don't mix up the wires.Thats all there is to it...
i asked this question on my quad 4 engine,you take the cover off that is on top of the motor that says quad 4,it has 4 long bolts in it,be careful not to lose the washers that are under the bolts,pull the cover up and you will see the plug boots,no wires here,just boots,and watch the ignition module conecters there ,you can unplug it if you want,but i just angle the cover out of the way,and if you change plugs,you might as well get plug boots to.every time i take my cover off the plug boots come apart.
2.2L and 2.4L are both extremely easy. If the 2.2L You'll need a a flat head screw driver for the clips and a pair of pliers to remove the boots. Remove one wire at a time. longest from the left to shortest to the right. If the 2.4L engine, they are small boots that are connected directly to the plugs to a coil- on-plug set up. You'll need to remove the 4 10mm or 13mm Bolts (can't remember which they are.) On the right hand side there is a black clip you need to remove. Once that is removed you can pickup the entire aluminum housing and you'll sell the boots them selves. Replace your new boots on to the plate and gently set the housing back down in there correct holes. Press down once all aligned and it will be ready for the bolts. If you need any clarifications, message me back and we'll go from there. Thank you for using fixya.com here is a link for a picture of what the boots will look like if you have the 2.4L engine. http://l.yimg.com/g/images/spaceball.gif
Dear Angel Divine, First determine whether you have a 4cyl. or V6 engine, then look at the engine bank/banks for the exhaust manifold and then the intake manifold, The plugs will be either be between the 2 manifolds(center of cylinder head) or between the exhaust manifold tubes. Call me back if you still have trouble. quicbric(volvo man)
