How do you change spark plugs in a 2002 buick rendezvous cxl

When you change spark plugs make sure your engine is cold, if the engine is hot you have a chance of breaking the ceramic the plug is covered with. Go to your auto parts store and buy some spark plugs. Ask the auto parts clerk what the plugs need to be gapped at or you can have them do it. When ready to change plugs, again make sure engine is cold. You will need a ratchet, possibly an extention and a spark plug socket. Pull the spark plug wires from their hole each individually as to keep track of which wires go to what hole. Put your ratchet, socket and spark plug socket together and insert in hole. Turn the ratchet left as the saying goes righty tighty, lefty loosy. Pull plug from hole when all the way loose, put new plug in and tighten snugly and put wire on new plug. Repeat all these steps on other plugs.

How do I access the spark plugs on a 2007 Chevy Malibu 4-cyl?

the spark plugs are located under the coil packs, you will need to unplug 1 of the coil wire connections, and then use a 1/4 " ratchet, or 3/8" ratchet and a 10 milimeter socket to remove the nut that holds down the coil pack to the engine, once the nut is removed, then grasp the upper end of the plug wire that goe's down into the head, turn it back and forth to loosen it up, and then pull this out and you can then use a 3/8 "ratchet, and a extenstion, with a 5/8 socket to remove the spark plugs, plugs should be removed when the engine is cold, not hot, because it is easy to strip the plugs threads in the head when the engine is hot, so again, change them only when engine is cold, hope that this information has helped you.

Can't figure out how to change it or take it off for sharpening

you find the right size socket that fits it.(it: the bolt in the middle of the blade under the mower. Then hold the blade as you turn the socket wrench, sometimes this will be hard. this is how to do it

How to change blade

Most are right-hand threads, but pretty tight.
You might need to wear gloves to hold the blade, and a long-handled ratchet & socket to loosen the bolt,(after you disconnect the spark plug ,of course)
