ive recently changed my spark plugs two days ago, still bad misfire and sputtering, rich smell, I bought some wires, i have a general idea on how to change them, If anyone knows an easy way or just more detailed so i actually feel like i know what im doing lol I would love you forever!
I have a v6 firebird... thanks so much!
It's very simple. Get yourself some spark plug wires and some dielectric grease. Put some grease on both ends of the spark plug wires (look in there you will see metal). The old plug wires just pull off, grip them by the boot (not the wire itself) and pull it off. They may be tight if they have been on there a while. Then just put the new wire on, push it on tightly, and repeat 5 more times.
Oh, and the V-6 wires are different lengths. So remove one wire, find the same length of wire in the new set and put it back on. That will keep you from coming up with a too short wire at the end.
I had 2 V-6 birds and on each one when I had mis-firing problems it was the wires. Once a bad wire blew out one of the 3 coils. So if the wires aren't the solution, have the coils tested. I think an autoparts store might be able to do that for you if you don't have the equipment.
