Depending on the engine you may not even have plug wires. i have a 2.4L in my grand am and they are under a plate directly on top of the engine(the one that says 2.4L on it.) should just be 4bolts and it lifts right out and you're 4spark plugs are right underneath it

Your spark plugs should be in either one of 2 places.
1 while you are stadning in front of the car look down there should be some what looks like black caps with thick wires coming from them. in this position you plugs will be torward the bottom of your engine.
2.look to the right or left of the engine. you should see the same thing black caps with wires comeing out of them. thoses are you plugs. now all you have to do is take one wire off at a time. to do that grasp the lower part of the wire shoudl be the black cap do not pull on the wire it's self you might break the wire. from there you should be able to see the top of the plug.

They are right on top of the motor.You need to pull that plate off that is held on by four bolts(13 mm), then remove the pigtail and it pulls straight up.Then you can access your plugs and plug boots.The spark plug socket size is a 5/8.Hope I could help, rate me accordingly.Thanks!!

1997 pontiac grand am 4 cyl. had spark plugs changed in feb. has had trouble starting in past, now it wont start. it turns over and fuel is getting to it but just wont start...plz help

The ignition control module needs to be replaced. It is located on the cover you remove to replace the spark plugs. You can have it tested before you buy a new one to be sure it's bad.
