    They go back in the empty holes in the cylinder head assembly. Do you have a spark plug socket and a ratchet.

I imagine you are talking about the plug wires one end attaches to the plug itself and the other to a unit usually mounted to the lower side of the battery

Where is my pcv valve on my 2000 ford escort

Check for vacuum leaks. PCV has hose from top of valve cover and runs down underneath by exhaust to the valve. Just follow the hose. Possible bad idle air controller (IAC). You can also unplug the mass air flow sensor and see if it runs any better. (It will set a code but you can clear it)

2000 Ford Escort won't start

If the engine cranks but won't start, someone will need to figure out if you are lacking fuel to the injectors or spark to the plugs to proceed with diagnosis.

How do i change spark plugs on a ford escort sport

start from the left hand side of the engine as you are facing it, take one out at a time this way you will not mix up the HT leads ok.
Take the lead off number one plug and unscrew the old plug anticlockwise with a socket that fits the sparkplug, once you have done that put the new one in and tighten up clockwise and put the lead back on and push down so you hear a click but do not tighten up to tight or you weill damage the treads on the plug. Just enough so you feel the pressure on the racket. then do the same with all of them.

I hope this help's?

When changing the spark plugs in my 2000 Ford ZX2 i accidently put escort plugs in the car sounds like it was studdering. i changed them back but it didn't solve the problem still studdering.

if they weren't the right plugs they may have been too long and a piston may have hit it.if thats the case it may be cheaper to replace the engine. look at the wrong plugs that u took out, if they are damaged there is a good chance you have don internal engine damage

Spark plug torque

Hi there;
Torque for your spark plugs is 7-15 ft lbs. You want to make sure the engine is not hot when you change them or you may ruin the threads. I also recommend you put some anti-seeze (like zinc-cote or copper cote) on the threads of the plugs to ensure they don't seize in after a long period of time.

Hope this helps

Change the spark plugs

there are 4 large wires at the front of the engine on the cylinder head, carefully remove them by twisting the rubber boots back and forth until they come off, under those are the spark plugs, u will need a 3/8" ratchet and a short socket extension with a 5/8" spark plug socket on it, put the socket over the plugs and remove them reinstall in reverse order, 10 minute job on an escort.
