How do you change the 3 spark plugs next to the firewall in a 2001 Chevy Impala 3.8 v6?

You can take the torque mount loose in front of the engine and by putting it in park rock the car to make the engine tilt foreward and push the park brake to hold it . This gives you some more room.

THEY make a tool (clamp) that attaches 2 the front Torque shock that pulls the engine forward.U bolt it on then tighten it until U have enough room.OR-- u bolt it 2 the engine & front upper cross mount.

However the tool is not necessary. If you remover the horizontal crossbar inside the engine right in front of the windshield you can reach behind the engine and change the plugs without dismounting the engine. I recommend putting a piece of carpet or a pad over the top of the engine to protect it while you change the plugs.

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.

There is a removeable panel below the glovebox. It is in front of the blower motor against the firewall. It has a wire connector from the loom and then it plugs into the blower motor

Loosen the 2 dog bones on the front of the engine and pull the motor forward to get to the back plugs.
