Question about 2001 Chevrolet Silverado

Spark Plugs Whats the easiest way to remove the coil from the top of the plug, the metal sleeve that covers it seems to prevent you from getting a good grip on the coil to seperate it from the plug.

You must mean the wire.There is a metal heat shield around the wire at the motor and it is connected to the wire.Just put a pair of needle nose pliers on the metal sleeve and twist it and pull it off

Where are spark plugs located for the vauxhall signum


You will have to remove the plastic head cover, you will have to remove the oil fill cap and screws/nuts holding the cover to the engine. Once you have that removed you will see wires going to coil packs that will have to be removed in order to get to the plugs. Disconnect the + and - battery terminals before starting. Also, when removing the coil packs be gentle as not to damage the sleeve or spring inside the sleeve which connects the coil to the plug.

Is a special tool required to change spark plugs in the 3.2L engine?


you will need 5/8 spark plug socket as well as a long extension to replace spark plugs.That you can get at local auto part stores.Plugs are on either rocker cover....there are 3 ign coils on each rocker cover that need to be removed then remove the plugs You will need a 5/8 spark plug socket as well as a long extension to replace them 8mm socket holds the individual coils on.
------------ ON 3.2L there are acually no spark plug wires, the engine acually has whats called, coil over plug which means the the power to make a spark plug spark, happens right over your spark plug. Now in order to get to the spark plugs which are under the coils you have to first unscrew the screws, there'll be two phillips head screws per coil, after that just pull the coil out, it should be about 3 inches, the spark plugs are at the bottom of the hole that you just uncoverd, you'll need an extesion for your socket in order to reach them, take them out, replace, put the coil back on top making sure that its seated ontop of the spark plug, put the two screws back in, tighten and your done with one, continue for all.
---------------- this should help.thanks.Helpmech.

I have a 2000 kia sprtage. i need to replace the spark plugs. They appear to be hidden. How do i get to them?


There is a tunnel intake tube,remove it,but there is a black plastic vacuum reservoir on the back connected to it,remove it first,it is not easy to do,after these are out of the way,the black plastic cover that goes down the middle of the valve cover has the coils,two of them,and two wires,and four spark plugs under it.If this was at all helpful,please rate,and thank you.

You don't have wires,you have COP-Coil-On-Plug system.
If you have the codes,you could change the coils yourself.Their $59.00 at the auto parts store.

There is a misconception about tune-ups.
You only have spark plugs,and air filter,that would need replacing,that effect engine performance (Tune-Up)
Also, you can Clean the MAF Sensor,in the ducting,between the air filter and throttle body,with CRC MAF Cleaner. You could spray the inlet to the throttle
body,but I wouldn't bother.
I consider plugs& filters ,general preventative maintainance,nothing really tunes the engine,but it's own processors.

If you remove the coil cover, on top of the valve cover,you access the coils.Have to remove the coils to get to the plugs. The plugs aren't your issue,unless they have been in the engine for years or the valve cover O"Rings are leaking oil onto the plugs. Three coils seems questionable.

Get me the codes!

How do i get to the spark plugs in a c200 1998 5door saloon?


Wrong model designation ali. It's either a c230 or a c280. The 4 cyl 230 spark plugs are located under the red cover on top of the engine. The plugs are down the center of the valve cover under this cover. The coils are on top of the plugs. Remove the cover, coils, and then the plugs. If it's a 280 v6 you have 2 plugs in each cyl. The arangement there is more conventional. The coils are bolter to the valve covers and have short wires to the plugs that are on the side of the motor just below the valve covers. Be careful removing the metal plug connectors. They will pull apart if you try and pull them loose by grabbing the wire. You need plug removal type pliers. Twist the metal end and pull like a mad man, repeat 11 more times! Good luck!
