SOURCE: How do you change the rear sparkplugs on an 2004

On the 2002 olds alero 2.2 4 cylinder ecotec the spark plugs are located on top of the intake, under the cover that gives the engine size,it I think that yours are also located under this cover. All you have to do is remove the four bolts on top of the cover and your plugs will be under there.

Can i replace that valve seals without take the heads out in a 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora v6


yes it can be done, but its better to remove the heads...
, use one of these methods,
#1
you need to get the cylinder on the compression stroke (both valves closed) remove spark plug and make sure the engine will NOT turn over !!
using a compressor and sparkplug adapter fill the cylinder with air which will hold the valves closed and with the springs removed change the seals " maintain the air pressure or the valves will fall into the cylinder !!!!! "

also if the cylinders have poor compression then air will leak and this will not work use method #2

method #2 as above but use string or rope to fill cylinder and keep the valves in place if an air source is not handy.....

Talk about a bad misfire.think of this, there use to be just spark plug now there is only sparkplug boot. on the sparkplug boot there is a heat shield and that heat shield job was to protect the boot well it now opposite so this is what it is doing ,Its grounding it out causing you these headache, tune it up replace the wire, and throw out the sheilds,(the ones on the sparkplug wire that is), and this will put you on the road

Misfire #1 cylinder (autozone scanner) I changed all plugs, boots, and #1 cylinder coil. Went back to autozone and says misfire #1 cylinder. should I try replacing #1 injector now?


inspect the sparkplug plug first!! After engine is running for 20 sec (while misfiring), pull your #1 sparkplug and check for fuel. If there is no fuel replace the injector!!If there is fuel, post a comment for more help!!

My car is misfiring and sputtering replaced plugs


the thing to do is find out which cylinders are misfiring,go to autozone they will scan it for free, you may have a bad control module,if you find out which cylinder, you can check it for spark if module is bad and not firing coil, but start by getting codes out of it at autozone.hope this helps.

How to change the spark plugs


you need a spark plug socket usually a 5/8 and a ratchet with an extension (might not need it) you might have to tilt your engine forward to get the back plugs(fwd) remove the boot(connected to top of sparkplug) ONE AT A TIME replace the plug and plug wire if you are replacing the wires RECOMENDED trace them one at a time and replace it, plug it onto the spark plug, then on to the next one, MAKE SURE YOU DONT REMOVE MORE THEN ONE BOOT AT A TIME, OR SPARKPLUG AT A TIME. take it one at a time so you dont mess the firing order up.

Ignition Distributor location


There is no cap and rotor, as the vehicles igntion system is DIS (digital ignition system). The recommended tune-up on these motors require sparkplug and coil replacement. The coil type in this vehicle is COPs (coil over plugs). Usually moist and oxidation develope on the sparkplug chamber walls from faulty or worn coil boots. This causes the coil to short, they must be replaced at 75,000 miles at the same time the sparkplugs are replaced. Typical symtoms are: Vehicle stalls (restarts and runs normal), intermitted jerks/sputter while driving, misfires, rough idle, severe power loss. Hopefully this helps
