    You have to remove whatever parts block you, is that not clear to you?

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..

Replaced the oil pan and gasket on my 2002 pontiac sunfire. car will turnover but wont start. getting c1254. what does this mean and how do I fix it

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.

If i have a 1996 chevy cavalier i have the firing order for the spark plugs but need the order for the distributor or ignition coil

Firing Orders
  • Sending Units And Sensors
  • Starting System
  • GM Cavalier/Sunfire 1995-2000 Repair Guide


    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.

    Where are the spark plugs and wires at on my 05 2.2 sunfire

    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.

    I need to replace the spark plugs in my 2004 pontiac sunfire. How do I get to them?

    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 only one at a time so you don't mix up the wires.Thats all there is to it...

    How to change spark plugs wires 1996 pontiacsunfire

    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 here is a link for a picture of what the boots will look like if you have the 2.4L engine.
