How do you replace the spark plugs on a 2002 Buick Rendezvous V6?
Obviously, the front three are fairly easy to reach. The rear three are the real problem. The easiest way to do the rear three is to jack the front of the vehicle up, crawl underneath until you can see the back of the engine from the ground, get real comfortable, making sure the engine and exhaust are cooled down, reach your arm up and pull the boots, very carefully.... then replace the spark plugs. You will not be able to see the plugs themselves, but this seems to be the easiest way. (just replaced the head gaskets on my wife's 02 rend., what a chore!)
What you need the most for the back 3 is PATIENCE, it's very tight, very strenuous and will take sometime, about 2 hours for me, (take a break or two, you're going to need it). You have to remove the boots as mentioned earlier, mine were very hard too take off, took all my strength. Do one plug at a time. You will need a deep socket with a short extension. Wear a long sleeve shirt too. Good luck!!!
This is "BBAASPENCER" here in TN and I would like to give you another answer. Actually, the correct way GM list in their service manual is to take off the engine dog bones, attach a pulling strap to the engine and hoist and roll it until you gain access. That is the same procedure for many SUV/Van GM front wheel drives. If the first procedure listed here works for you, I'm okay with that. I just wanted to give you another option. Here is a video on this new engine tool. Will try it soon to see of it works. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tlIkbbl7cBo
Buick Rendexvous Spark plugs change: 3 of them of are in the front so thats easy and the other 3 are in the back of the engine thats not easy but can be done! To do the 3 in the back you,ll need to watch a video on youtube showing one how to roll the engine forward to get to those 3 plugs.. watch it again on youtube... have Fun!
Yes it needs spark plugs and wires. I own a 1992 Buick Roadmaster and had to replace plugs and wires recently. Not that expensive, I bought AC Delco plugs and wires. I had a discount as well. Be sure you know what your doing, which one is which I change them one at a time so not to mix up wires and the last on on the left side is a pain, the last two…
To replace the spark plugs on your Celebrity requires a 5/8" spark plug socket, short extension and either a ratchet or breaker bar. First remove the spark plug wire then use the socket to remove the spark plug. The spark plugs should have a .045" gap. Replace the spark plug and reattach the wire. Continue until you have replace all of the spark plugs.
When replacing spark plugs on a Nissan Maxima 1995 remove the spark plug covers by twisting until they come loose. Use a socket and wrench to turn the spark plug to the left until it is released from the vehicle. Repeat for all spark plugs. Screw the new spark plugs into the vehicle and replace the spark plug covers.
Disconnect the battery, remove the spark plug cables, boots and spark plugs from the driver side, and put in the new spark plugs and replace everything. Lift the passenger side on a jack, remove the tire, from under that side of the car, remove the spark plug cable, boots and plug. Replace the plugs and everything else, then lower the car.
