    Exclamation How do I change the spark plugs on a 2001 Catera?

    OK ive done sparks on lots of cars, but never on this one yet. I know there in coil packs but When i look under the hood I have no idea where to look and what to start taking off to get to them. I want to install some new plugs with E3's.

    So my questions can someone tell me some simple steps to find, remove the coil pack to expose the spark plugs, and also where im looking for them. Thanks so much!

    get yourself a shop manual - it pays for itself the first time you use it

    Mounted in the middle of the valve covers, only a few bolts holding them in.
