Buick Regal

Why would a 1995 Buick Regal be very hard to start especially when cold after replacing the spark plugs and plug wires?

check to see that the plugs are screwed in firmly (don't crack one off though!!!) then check the order of the wires, I'm guessing the firing order is wrong somehow or the gap on the spark plugs may be too small/narrow where not enough force is created to ignite fuel

Like most cars with no "spark" it can be caused by faulty/old cables. Replacing them would be a quick and cheap solution if in fact they are the cause.

The spark plug gap for a 2000 Buick Regal should be set at .060 inches. New spark plugs may be purchased at an auto parts store and will be preset.

The spark plugs are all identical so are interchangeable

check spark plug gap and firing order-also check to make sure plugs are tight and wires connected

not necessarily unless after replacing plugs your engine misfires.

They are slightly above the exhaust manifold with metal heat shields around them, but if you didn't already know that you shouldn't even have your hood open! So go to a mechanic!

I had this same issue with my 2001 Regal. How long has it been since you have done plug/wire change? I changed mine and now starts/runs like a charm. My plugs/wires were still factory.....250000 miles.....hope this helps

Clogged air filter, defective O2 sensor, clogged catalytic converter, bad plugs and or plug wires, poor driving technique to name a few possible causes.

I'm not sure what the firing order for that vehicle is but try Autozone.com they are posting tech data on their web site now. If you plan on doing plugs and wires just do one at a time, then you should'nt need the firing order.

Remove the spark plugs wire and remove the plugs wit a spaerk plug wrench or socket.

i am pretty sure you will have to tilt the engine ahead or if your arms are smaller you can pull each wire (if your replacing those as well,cause usually they break from age)and use a 2-3 inch extension and a socket wrench and nustle them out,than for install thread them by hand slowly as to not crossthread them.been there done that never moved a 3800 yet.
