I need instructions on how to change spark plugs and wireset on a 1995 subaru impreza l 1.8

Since you are unfamiliar with this process, do these steps one spark plug at a time. Locate the spark plugs; remove the wire's connecting cap from the plug; remove the spark plug from its threaded hole (use a dedicated spark plug wrench or socket of the proper size - may be a 16mm, 5/8", or possibly but unlikely 13/16"); check the electrode gap on the new plug and install it in the threaded hole; follow the plug wire back to its individual coil (opposite end from the spark plug; remove the old plug wire and replace it with the new one of the same length ensuring the same wire routing; replace the plug wire cap on the new plug; move on to the next and repeat.

I need a spark plug wire routing diagram for a 1998 chevy cavalier 4 cylinder

Dependent on which way your rotor button turns (clockwise or counter-clockwise), the firing order is 1-3-4-2. If you're unsure and the distributor cap doesn't have an arrow denoting which way the rotor turns, you'll have to remove the distributor cap and have someone crank the engine over to see which way it turns. Now, if you have ALL your wires from the distributor cap removed, you'll have to locate TDC (Top Dead Center). Remove spark plug number 1 and rotate the engine clockwise (as you're looking at it), with the distributor cap off until you can insert the end of a screwdriver into the spark plug port to feel the top of the piston touch the screwdriver. Remember, the Crankshaft goes around twice for every time the camshaft goes around once, so look at the timing marks on the Crankshaft and make sure there lined up at "zero", the piston is touching the screwdriver, and where ever the rotor is pointing...that's number one cylinder.

I hope this Helps. Let me know.

I own a 2007 dodge ram 1500 pickup with the 4.7 liter magnum engine. I am changing the spark plugs but where are they or what do I have to take off to get to them.

Well you have spark plug wires that run to them. It's a 4.7L so you will have 8 of them. They run into the engine block I will post a picture for you.

Okay so make sure when you take them off you know what wire goes where from the distributor cap. Sometimes the book isn't correct if the car has had the electronics redone. Take them out with a spark plug socket and replace but don't tighten too much. Tight but don't crank on it. Also if you're doing the plugs maybe consider doing the wires, cap, rotor while you're at it. If you have questions just ask and good luck!

What my cause a misfire in a 98 dodge avenger

  1. A lot can cause a misfire:
  2. Primarily fouled spark plug(s) or bad wire(s).
  3. also a corroded distributor cap or rotor. a vacuum leak,
  4. A bad or leaking fuel injector,
  5. Engine out of time and mechanical engine faults including Compression leaks and sticking valves.
  6. More often than not it is simply a fuel or ignition system problem both of which are fairly easy to solve.
Troubleshoot your ignition by first assuring that you have fire.

If the engine does not crank at all pull the coil wire off at the cap and set it within an inch of the tower and crank the engine. sparks should emit from this wire to the coil.

You can test each individual spark plug wire this same way by just unplugging it and arcing the spark. then pull out the spark plugs to examine them and replace as necessary (on a dodge use champion plugs). the cap can be removed (make sure to put it on exactly as it came off and put each wire back exactly as it was or it will NOT fire correctly). to check for fuel disconnect the line at the fuel rail on top of the intake manifold and turn the key to ON. this will kick on the fuel pump and should push fuel out of the line as the pump primes. if this test works but you still are not getting fuel to a particular cylinder(s) start unplugging injectors while the engine is running and make a note of which one does not change the idle as this is your problem cylinder. remember any ignition or fuel system fault will disrupt your fuel/air ratio and can damage the catalytic convertor and o2 sensors

Want to check pickup assem in dist.

Fouled spark plug? Bad wire? Rotor / cap new? Check those things out, wear a thick rubber glove, take the wire off the non working plug, put a screwdriver next to the wire (while car is running) and see if a spark is made. If it is, your plug is bad. If no spark, replace wires. Still no spark? Change your rotor and cap. Still no spark? Ignition module. Following those steps will save you some green.

are the plug wires routed to the same plug position that they were before you put plug in it and did you by chance install new plug wires because you may have possibly fractured or broke the thin wire or spark plug connection spring inside the plug wire boot. please let me know
