The spark plugs are located below a panel in the center of the engine block. You don't have individual cables, but rather a panel to which a wiring harness is attached. This wiring harness includes the four boots that fit on top of the spark plugs. When you remove this panel, all four boots come off all four plugs simultaneously. The panel has four long bolts. The wiring connections attach on the right side: you may need to slide out a little compression pin on the wiring harness to be able to slide the entire jack out of the socket, but it should be pretty easy to figure that out. Once the wires are disconnected, you can loosen the bolts and then carefully pull the panel off completely. Spark plug removal is the same as normal, but you will need an extension on the wrench to be able to reach them. As always, only remove the plugs when the engine is cold or you risk stripping the threads on the block. Replacing the panel can be slightly tricky to get all of the boots to align properly. I recommend squirting some WD-40 or silicone spray in the boot (make sure it's ok for the electronics and won't dissolve the rubber... it should be, but different products do different things) to ease sliding it on there. Tighten down the bolts and reattach the wiring and test the car to make sure it's running correctly.

The 1993 Pontiac Grand Prix 3.4 liter engine spark plug gap should be .028. Most spark plugs come pre-gapped from the manufacturer.

Where are the freeze plugs on a 2003 pontiac grand am

how to chang spark plugs in a 1992 Pontiac grand prix

the sparks plugs are under the cover on top of the engine

There are several things that can cause your 2001 Pontiac Grand Am 2.4 liter engine to misfire. The next thing you should change will be the fuel injectors.

Under the aluminum cover on top of engine there are 2 coil packs-pull them up off of plugs.

First, spark plug locations? Second, are you sure it's a 2.7 liter? Is it a grand am? For a 97 grand am 2.4 there is a cover on top of the engine, unplug the wiring on the right (drivers side), unbolt the plate and carefully lift up. The plugs are in a row in that valley.

on top of the engine there is a cover sheild. remove the cover by the four bolt. the plug boots will come with it, the spark plugs are down in the holes.

That would depend on which engine you have in your 2003 Ford Excursion : The 7.3 liter diesel engine doesn't use any spark plugs The 5.4 liter V8 engine has ( 8 spark plugs ) The 6.8 liter V10 engine has ( 10 spark plugs )

On a Ford Excursion ( if it has a gasoline engine ) ( the 5.4 liter V8 engine has 8 spark plugs ) ( the 6.8 liter V10 engine has 10 spark plugs )

Screwed into the head. Take off the metal cover on the top of the engine (4 bolts)and the plugs are under it there are not attached with wires but boots

0.060 - at least from plugs Napa sells. Other plugs may have different gap or have preset gapping

That depends if you have a gasoline engine On a 2003 Ford F-250 if you have the 5.4 liter gasoline V8 engine it has ( 8 spark plugs ) If you have the 6.8 liter gasoline V10 engine it has ( 10 spark plugs ) If you have the 7.3 liter DIESEL engine it doesn't have any spark plugs

You must loosen the top motor mount and tilt the engine forward.

I own a '97 Pontiac grand am where would i find the spark plugs so i can change them?

No, diesels dont have spark plugs


Absolutely. 4 of them across the front of the engine. They may be hidden by a shroud on your car. Look for the plug wires and follow them to where the plugs live. If you have a shop manual, it will show you what's up with the plugs. FriPilot

There are some comments that you should not adjust the gap sizes of the plugs and use them the way they come out of the box. Hmmm .. I have a 1999 Grand Prix GTP with the 3.8L V6 supercharged engine. My GM owners manual states a gap of .060 for all the replacement plugs listed not only for my engine but for all Grand Prix engine sizes of that year 3.1 / 3.8 / 3.8SC Check your GM owners manual .. it will state there in the section of different replacement parts, what spark plugs to use and the gap size

at the end of the plug wires in the head

Look in the manual for the car. If mot a dealersip will know simply call the part department at a GM delaership on the 2.3 liter 4 cylinder the plugs are under the metal cap on top of the engine which has either sohc or dohc on it.. they are on the firewall side once you remove the cap.

It is located right on top of the engine on the back right corner (driver's side, close to the firewall), straight back from the throttle body. It sorta looks like it has 3 chambers on it and there is an electrical connector that plugs into the top of it.

1.8 liter engine is 4 spark plugs

on the top of the engine there is a plate that is held down with four bolts take off those 4 bolts and you will see that the boots are connected to the plate and the plugs are under there

I have the same engine in the 1993 Grand Am SE Coupe and it is a pain to get to. I believe that it is in between the engine and the firewall. I think that I saw it while I was changing my spark plugs. Just shine a light strait down where the cabin side spark plugs are located.
