Use AC Delco iridium spark plugs and AC Delco plug wires. AC Delco works the best. I'm sorry I can't really say what injector cleaners work as I've only used Seafoam.

There are many many post on here about rear spark plug removal, but they mostly say the same thing. It can be an easy job or a pita...pita mostly Laughing The rear plug wire's glue them self"s on, so be prepared for a good twist and pull to remove them.

To keep the fuel injectors clean, this is what we used at the Chevy/Buick dealer I worked at. GM supplied it, & it had a GM part number. But it costs less than half if you buy it at Walmart. I'll throw it in the tank twice a year, but since I usually buy Chevron gas, I don't know if it's really necessary. http://www.walmart.com/ip/Chev.....z/16647989
As for plugs & wires, I used AC Delco parts from the local jobber. Same as came on the car. My friend, a GM tech did not have to jack up the engine to get to the rear plugs. GARY

It's a Thexton #419X "Engine Moving Tool". I think they cost about $40.

Since you have an 02 you should be able to remove the stb, and move the coolant overflow and fit your arm around the back side of the motor. I may be wrong, but the engine and transmission location moved rearward in 03+

No tool really needed. When I did mine we unbolted the upper motor mounts and rocked the car. Motor moved up and we pinned it in place. I've also used a quality ratchet strap to tilt it. Just make sure you pin it in place before working on it.
