Questions and Answers

Chevy Malibu Spark Plugs

Q. I have a 1999 Chevy Malibu 2.4 liter 4 cylinder. I looked and looked and could not find the plugs which is embarrassing to say the least. Especially after I restored a 1969 Ford Mustang and built a 1936 Chevy. Somebody told me to take the cover off the top of the engine where it says 2.4 liter. There are four bolts.

My question is; Is this correct and if I take this cover off is there springs or anything that is going to pop out at me? I heard that there are four coils or something like this and I had to be real careful taking the cover off. Help!


A. Yes. Take those four bolts off and gently pry up on the aluminum cover. There is a big plastic cover under there which houses the coils, spring contacts, and rubber boots.
