I changed them going underneath. It was hard to get to because the car was so low to the ground. Just get a handy light you can place on the ground (in the upward position) and lift the front of the car off of the ground onto 2 jack stands. Next time I will pay someone to do it.

addition to it.

Because Ex Manifold, AC pipe, wall are on the way to ratchet, You should use wobble extension rod and 3/4" combination wrench and 3/4 box wrench.

(3/4 will fit over spark plug socket)

I was thinking that changing spark plugs was easy job but spent whole day to figure out how geometrize it.

use different set with ratchet, extension, and open wrench for each plugs.

I use 3/4 combination wrench with spark plug socket for #5 (no room for ratchet)

I use 3/4 box with wobble extension over spark plug socket (because short extension was just little bit short and medium extension was too long ) for #3 & #4

If you have foot long water pipe(1.5 inch or so dia) to use as extension of ratchet handle, it will help too. I use it for #1 & #2

unless you want to dismount whole exhaust from engine, you need patient.

Remove the spark plug wires from your 2000 Chevy Impala spark plugs. Remove the spark plugs with a 5/8 deep well socket by turning the socket to the left. Reverse the process to install the new spark plugs.

In my 91 RS 305, I change the spark plugs working from underneath the car. The spark plugs are easier to see and get a 3/8 ratchet with long spark plug socket on from underneath. How can you do that? is quite imposible to remove it, is no space to do work ?

Just as long as you get the proper length plugs for the engine you won't damage anything.

In order to change the sparks plugs in a Chevy Express 3500 van, you should first remove the front tires. This will allow you to get to the front six plugs. The doghouse also needs to be pulled in order to get to the last two spark plugs.
