I need to know how...
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

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.
Auto Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Service Technician replied 9 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.
