2006 Buick LaCrosse Q&A
2006 Buick LaCrosse Question: Spark plug change out requires a special tool for my 3.8L !
Unable to remove the 6 sparkplugs as I am told & see on the web a special GM tool is required. Anyone know how to do this without having to buy the $150 tool? I only have 31,000 miles on the car & it is running fine so not an urgency as I read the factory plugs are designed to run fine up to 50,000 miles. - Bob from the Okanagan
Not aware of any special tools needed to replace spark plugs. Scheduled maintenance table reccomends that the spark plugs be replaced at 100k miles. - milesauto
Don't overthink the job......EVERY manufacturer has 'special tools' listed in their service manuals. Even a plain screwdriver will have a 'special tool #'. Just a thought...good luck and yeah I agree with milesauto, If no other problems present themselves first , I would wait on the plug replacement for now. - ziptie12
