Trying to find out what all is involved in replacing the spark plugs on our 2000 Mazda MPV DX mini van
What do we have to take off to replace them? Is there anything in particular we need to watch for / need to know.
Tried to find a Chilton's repair manul for it. No luck finding one..
Any help wud be appreciated

If the van was running before you changed the wires, I don't see how it is not firing the plugs now unless you got the wrong wires and they are not making contact with the coil towers and the plugs. If there is no spark on any of the wires, something happened to the coil pack or the crank/cam sensors. Or a fuse or relay for the coil pack. I would probably try an old plug wire to make sure, then check the coil for voltage.
I'd check #1 spark plug.
Usually a misfire code "fix" is a spark plug, spark plug wire, or a coil pack / distributor.
Keeping it simple...I'd go with the spark plug first and then look at the condition of the wires.
Hi, the cylinder order is 1,2,3 (rear row, left-to-right) and then 4,5,6 (front row, left-to-right). When replacing spark plug wires or plugs, it's very helpful to do one at a time to avoid connecting them incorrectly.
