It's actually the number three plug that is behind the steering column. They make a special socket just for this plug. Wharf you spark plug socket has a hex end on it than install it and use a wrench to turn the plug out. It is tedious but it will work. If you spark plug socket does not have the hex end than you can either get one or get the special tool. If you jack up the drivers side of the vehicle by the fframe you can access all the plugs a little easier through the wheel well opening. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

99 chev. tahoe changed plugs and now im not getting fire to the number 1 plug whats wrong


Loretta,, Occasionally, a spark plug is "bad" right out of the box. But a single new plug and install it in the #1 cylinder. Also, on a 15 year old vehicle, it is likely that the spark plug wire wa damaged removing it in order to replace the plug. Good Luck.

The number 1 cylider not firering ,there is power coming to it but no spark ,ECU was tested they see no problem ,Compresion test tested and fine ,Coil packs ,enjectoers ,tested and all fine. There is still...


Swap the coils around. See if the no spark follows that coil, or stays at number 1. Could be a bad plug wire, too. Or the wiring to the coil for number 1.

Spark plug wiring from distributor cap to spark plugs on a 95 honda civic dx 1.5 liter 16 valve sohc


If you look at the distributor cap from the wires side carefully, you would find either a line mark on one of the outer side of four holes (where the spark plug wires are inserted) or the numbers printed on the top of distributor cap (1,3,4,2). Fix one end of the longest high tension plug wire into number 1 hole or the one marked with a line mark on the distributor cap and the other end on spark plug number 1 (the number 1 plug is toward the pulleys and the belts side, then No 2, No 3 and No 4). While standing in front of right wheel you will see the distributor cap in front of you. The rotor moves clock wise. After you fix the 1st cord, next comes number 3 plug wire. Insert one end of the cord into the next to 1 on the right hand side and press the other side of the cord on spark plug number 3. Next to 3 is the cord number 4 and the last one is number 2.

Need spark plug wiring sequence, 1985 toyota corolla 1600 2 door hatchback, rear wheel drive


With the 2T-C, 3T-C, and 3K-C engines the Firing Order is 1-3-4-2
The distributor rotates ->Clockwise. (The rotor actually)

Number 1 spark plug tower on the distributor cap, faces directly towards the engine. Number 2 faces the back of the engine, Number 4 faces the front of the engine, Number 3 is to the outside away from the engine.

Number 1 spark plug is at the front of the engine. 1-2-3-4

With the 4A-C engine, and other A-Series, the Firing Order is 1-3-4-2
The distributor rotates ->CounterClockwise.

Number 1 spark plug tower is towards the engine, and faces the back of the engine. Number 3 spark plug tower is away from the engine, and faces the back of the engine.
Number 2 spark plug tower is towards the engine, and faces the front.
Number 3 spark plug tower is away from the engine, and faces the front.

Change sparks plugs on 06 hyundai sonata v6


You didn't specify whether you have the (4) cylinder or the (6) cylinder engine..... I have a 2004 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L 4 cylinder and I just changed the spark plugs in it. I believe that the 2005 2.4L engine is the same. To locate and change the (4) spark plugs on a 2004 Hyundai 2.4L 4 cylinder engine: Remove the (4) 12mm bolts from the decorative plastic engine cover. Remove plastic cover from engine and place it off to the side out of your way. Standing in front of the car, the (4) spark plugs are located laterally (left to right) in the recessed area underneath where the plastic engine cover was removed. Note: This engine has (2) coils....They are located above spark plugs number (2) and (3) from left to right. Starting with the fist spark plug on the left: Remove the spark plug cable by pulling straight up on the insulated connector. Using a spark plug socket, remove the old spark plug and install a new one in it's place. To access the second spark plug from the left, remove the electrical connector and the spark plug cable wire from coil number (1) and then remove the (2) 12mm bolts that secure the coil to the engine. Spark plug number (2) is located directly under the coil. Lift the coil straight up removing the insulated connector from spark plug number (2). Using a spark plug socket, remove old spark and install a new one in it's place. Repeat same procedures for spark plugs number (3) and (4). Note: If you have the (6) cylinder engine, the front (3) sparks pluge are readilly accessible but in order to access the (3) rear spark plugs, you will have to remove the intake manifold
