Resolved Question:

I need to know how to change my 2005 Saturn Vue (with the Honda engine) spark plugs. I removed a connection where I thought the plug may be. But a long tube came out of the engine so I reinstalled back the way it was. Thanks Tom

  7. Remove the ignition module attachment bolts
  8. Remove the ignition module housing assembly with the spark plug boots from the spark plugs WARNING To avoid getting water and debris into the spark plug holes, used compressed air and a shop rag to blow out each spark plug hole before plugs are removed.
  9. Remove the spark plugs using a spark plug socket.

To install:

NOTE Do NOT coat spark plug threads with anti-seize compound. If anti-seize compound is used and spark plugs are over-torqued, damage to the cylinder head threads may result Click image to see an enlarged view2.2L engine with spark plugs removed

Reply to carguy1's Post: Yes, it was on the outside of the tube and outside of the engine. The tube was probably within the cylinder.
Expert:  Mike V. replied 6 years ago.
Yes,that would be the coil.It sits over the top of the plug.If you take a flashlight and look down the hole,you should be able to see the top of the spark plug.You are in the right aea,just take the next step and pull the plug.
