Hi everyone. I’m trying to learn about my car that I got from my dad a few years back. I was told that the spark plugs were simple to replace, but I’m not too sure on how to locate them in my car it is a 1991 Pontiac Bonneville with a 3.8 engine

hi, welcome to the club!! you will see wires coming from a coil - there will be 6 - one wire going to each cylinder - at the end of the wire is the spark plug.
it would be wise for you to watch vids on youtube to get an idea. you will also need some standard tools with a spark plug socket - pretty standard these days
post back with your progress......later

About as easy as it gets for a fwd V6 engine. No special tools required, a 3/8" drive socket set will be all you need. If you change the air filter at any time it might not be the obvious screws you need to undo.
