Changing spark plugsThings you will Need. 1.Spark Plug Socket with the rubber insert.I used a T-Handle. 2.Spark Plug Wire-boot puller,Longer necked version. 3.Gap Gage. 4.Floor Jack. 5.Anti-seige Compound. 6.Racket stap 7. Wet vac,slim nossle.

Let Engine cool down!! First block Back tires. Place the car in neutral. Disconnect the Negative Terminal on the Battery Position Floor jack under motor,have a 12-16 " 2x4 piece of wood.Leftjack up until about 4" from bottom of motor. Disconnect air intake hose. Place racket strap hook through eye hole of front motor Bracket.Have other end of racket strap fasten to some solid. Loosen and remove front motor brackets. Tight the racket strap up until eye let / or slave hole is line up with exsisting bolt hole for motor mount. Some folks use a crow bar on passageer side,motor mounts. to lift engine forward. (In addition some vehecle has a Slave hole that will enable you to place the bracket bolt though.With this there is no need for you racket strap). Be careful not to move to far forward. Snug the flooor jack up against the motor.Just to where the 2x4 touches . This just a pre-caution in case the motor drops back. Starting with the fist plug wire on the passenger side (Plug 1) use your boot puller tool to rmove the boot. Turning left and right and pulling up on the boot. You may want to use a the wet vac to remove any loose particuls Rmove Spark plug.Vacuum again if needed. Put anti-seige on the threads of your new plug making sure you donnot get any on your conductor ends.Place in new plug making sure you donnot cross thread. There is a torque spec. for this.

With new plug wires make sure of your length to match the old plug wires length. Same procedure for the next plugs in back. Do plugs and or plug wires one at a time.

Once completed with the back check and make sure no vacuum lines have become disconnected. Using crow bar on passenger side hold forward (Bolt throught he hole of the engine bracket) Undo your rachet strap. Go to floor jack and let the engine slowly until the brack holes line up.Place in the engine bracket on drivers side and tighten. Leaving the passenger side bracket of will help when working on the front plugs. The front is much easier to replace. After replacing the front ,reconnected the passenger engine bracket (mount). Reconnect the air intake hose,and battery terminal. For other assistance you could go to a local auto parts dealer and buy the Maintence manual for Monte Carlo. Hope this helps and more important makes sense.

It is important to gap the spark plugs at the right size. The spark plug gap for a 1981 305 Monte Carlo is .045 inches.

The spark plug gap for a 1995 Monte Carlo z34 is.45 inches. New spark plugs come preset, however, and should not need adjustments prior to installation.

the easiest way is to pull the upper plenium, of course you want to replace the gaskets at this time as well.

Make sure it's getting gas and has spark to the plugs.

it could be because you have bad spark plugs or you may need a new fuel filter. most likely your spark plugs.

when do you change spark plugs

A tune-up can practically breath new life in a 2000 Monte Carlo. A basic tune-up requires replacing the spark plugs, fuel filter, and air filter.

The rear plugs will have to be reached from underneath. The engine will need to be unbolted from the motor mounts (while being properly jacked up) and leaned forward. There is a special wrench used to reach up and get to the plugs at this point.

For the 3.1 or 3.4 V-6 it isn't easy. The plugs facing the front of the car are accessible. the ones on the fire wall side of the motor are impossible to get to without tilting or lifting the motor. Take you car to a professional or forget about them and just change the plugs you can get to.
