    Smile 1998 Deville - change spark plugs

    I want to change the spark plugs and wires. I am unable to get off the plastic cover on top of the engine. There are four nuts holding the cover. Two nuts rotate but do not come loose. I think the bolts are rotating. Any suggestions? I appreciate any help you can give!

    Keep turning and pull the studs with it. Once they are off you can remove the studs, put them back and apply some anti-seize to the threads.

    The padding under the cover can over time adhere to the plenum too so you might have to "gently tug" to get it loose.

    Make sure to put ground under the ICM over back plugs when you reinstall. It geta left off a lot.
