Default Spark plugs & wires replacement 3.8

I thought this would be helpful and sence somone asked, I figured I would make a quick How to. This is just a short how to on where everything is located & how to do it. Nothing is very in-depthed so anyone please feel free to add on. If you have a V8, just do everything like this but +2, lol.

All of the following photos & print is property of me & cannot be used for sale of any idems without my permission. Feel free to use them for personal use. And feel free to make fun of my crappy handwriting with the mouse, in steps 1&2 but I started typing in step #3

Things you will need:
New Spark Plugs
New Spark Plug wires
Spark plug Socket
Socket wrench
Jack & jackstands or drive-ons
pry-bar or boot remover suggested
Mechanics Gloves Suggested


Before you do this, jack up the car so you can easily fit under it, then lower the car onto 2 jackstands. One on each side. Do not get under your car without using jackstands, exspecally on a job like this. You will be under your car alot and moving things alot. So make sure your car is securly up on jack stands.


Step #1 - Disconnect negative terminal on the battery.

Definetely needs a sticky. I was looking for a good how to on this for Camaros and this might have just saved me a $100 on mechanic's work.

Also just a quick note, you will hurt your hands & arms doing this. It is a very tight fit up in there. You will deffantly want some mechanics gloves. Just letting you all know, it will be painful

Can we get something similar on changing the fuel filter? I've already bought one at autoparts but I don't even know where its located in the car.
