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.

How do you change the back 3 spark plugs on a 2003 Pontiac Grand Prix?

The engine must be tilted forward. Why are you changing spark plugs on a 2003 engine. These plugs do not need replacement until 100,000 miles. For more detailed directions, follow the instructions for changing the plugs in any 3800 engine in the grand prix '97 and up listed in the grand prix forum. Hope this helps. "G" You need to remove alternator, and undo forward engine support to get engine to go forward. It is a tight fit but it can be done. I even did it with just alternator removed. Have fun

Spark plug gap for 2000 pontiac grand prix 3.8 liter super charged?

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

Where is the oxygen sensor located on a 3.3L V6 1992 Pontiac Grand Am?

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.
