    Find a safe place to wedge a 2X4 beind the IM. Rev the motor and throw the board in... hold it forward. Might work.. Ive seen it work on GM v6s before.

    Or you can 'bounce' the engine by pushing the van back while it's in park. The engine should rock when you do this and it's probably a little 'safer' than revving the engine.
    Does the engine have any kind of "dog bone" or "torque strut" or some other type of top side motor mount? I know GMs did this for a while. With those you needed to unbolt that mount before you could rock the engine.

    Where do I find my spark plugs on a 2008 CX-7? And is that something I can do or do I have to pay the dealer?
