How do you change spark plugs on grand am quad 4?

I have a '95 grand am quad 4, 2.3 liter engine. The 2.3 quad 4 engine has the spark plugs underneath the ignition module cover, which is the cover that has "Quad 4" written on it. You have to remove this cover to get to the spark plugs. To remove the cover, you have to first unplug the negative batter cable and then unplug the crankshaft sensor from the ignition module housing. The cranshaft sensor is the plug that is to the top right of the ignition module housing. After you have unplugged the sensor, you have to unscrew the four bolts that are on top of the ignition module cover. After you've done that, you can lift the cover directly up. This disconnects it from the spark plugs. When purchasing new spark plugs, make sure you get the right ones for the engine, adn you can ask the guys at the shop to set the correct gap for you.

Do you have to go through the steering column to replace an ignition module?

Are you talking about the electronic ignition module or the ignition switch? The ignition module sits in the engine compartment and is part of the ignition system (coil, spark plugs, etc). The answer is no if this about what you're referring. The answer for the ignition switch will depend on the vehicle you have. Some, like late model Fords, you don't. Push in the retaining pin and the ignition switch comes right out (you still need a key though). Others you need to take off the steering wheel to replace the switch.
