i was thinking that myself, and thats why im thinking maybe we should make a tune up techinfo. so that those afraid to ask can read instead... b4 working on a car i would suggest that u know the basics of how a car works, if u dont here is a article about it http://auto.howstuffworks.com/engine.htm its a bit long but its worth it if u dont know the basics...

This looks like something that should be a part of the links page. That website has helped me understand cars more than anything else (especially forced induction)

Default MAN I KNEW I WAS GONNA GET FLAMED!

Sorry, Guys should have been more specific,His comments to me were that the plugs were in the far back of the engine and you needed some type of special tool to reach them, If he is clueless about this I will be getting another mechanic.Thanks for the info and the welcome.

Even my big ol' hands fit back there. It'* a tight squeeze, but I've done my plugs a couple of times with a ratchet and spark plug socket. The only soecial tools you might want to use would be mechanix gloves (or, in my case, band-aids).

You guys want a tech info?

What do you want it to consist of...

Lets get a running tally of everything that you all think is improtant to know when changing the plugs on a 3800 engine... You guys throw the info together... Start a thread "spark plug change" (Tech Info)... Once you all get the info hashed out, I will write it up and send it off to the gearheads for their opinion and or additions... Then I will throw it into TechInfo for you...

Work for you guys?

Sounds excellent....

First tip :

DO NOT ATTEMPT WHILE ENGINE IS RUNNING


ive seen it tried before The shock through the persons hand (bare wire in fighers, back hand on chassis) with an engine coil looked VERY PAINFUL. Not to mention the damage to the car running on 5 cyliders.
