Hi..
Good. The spark plugs, Are located on top of the engine. On each cylinder.
Some cars come with a plastic cover on top of the Engine and you will need to remove to see the Ignition wires. Remove the ignition wires and with a 5/8 socket you will remove the spark plugs.

Be careful Don't drop, because the gap can be out of calibration.
Replace the Ignition wires if need.

Ok. if you have more questions let me know.


Thank you for use fixya..

I'm only getting spark out of one of the coil packs and the car turns over put won't start, please help me. Thank you


Try switching the ignition coil with the other coil and plug it in and check for spark again. If it works in the other coil location, then you need an ignition coil. Your engine is bad for valve cover gasket leaks which deteriorate the spark plug wires, so if you are going to put in plugs and wires with the new coil, I would recommend replacing the valve cover gasket and spark plug tube seals(included with the valve cover gasket set).

Hi....
Is there a few possibilities for a Low mileage per gallon on any car.
But I will mention the more Importants.

The Spark plugs.
Depend on the Mileage on your car, Normally For a Prizm.
The spark plug should be changed every 30,000 Miles.
With Factory Dippon Denso ( ND) or NGK. Both are factory replacement.

Check for any Vaccum leak on the Intake Manifold and The Big Rubber hose from the Throttle Body
To the Air filter.. Or any restriction on the Big rubber hose.

Is very Important to Have changed the Oil every 3,000 miles.
Incredible But Old oil made any car to have low mileage per gallon.

Check the condition of the Transmission Fluid .
Is nessesary to change the first time at 60,000, and after Every 20,000 or 30,000 miles.
To old or burn Transmission fluid made the car run on more RPM to get power.
Compare with new oil ,

Ok. is there a few more things but check this first and let me know.

I hope this help on your question.
Thank you for use fixya.

Do not know where spark plugs are located in motor


the spark plugs wires are directly located on top of the engine and the spark plugs are down inside the holes in the valve cover itself. I believe there are also 2 coils on top of the engine, which hide two of the spark plug wires which are attached directly to the underside of each coil, remove the coil pull it upward carefully and you will find the spark plugs for those two in the hole underneath the coil for each one. If you decide to replace the plugs, make sure to check the spark plug gap even if they tell you they are pre-gapped as pre-gapped spark plugs are usually gapped for more than one particular car and it may be incorrectly gapped for your specific vehicle. If you decide to also replace the spark plug wires, you will have to purchase the spark plug wires for the underside of each coil seperately because most local auto parts stores only sell 2 spark plug wires in the set that go onto the non-coil attached wires and plugs, and you have to purchase the coil spark plug wires seperately. So all in all you should have 4 spark plug wires, 2 that attach directly underneath the 2 coils, then 2 regular type wires that run to the other spark plugs. If you look at the valve cover and see the wires, you will see what i am saying better. Just don't forget to ask the autoparts store the spark plug gap recommended for you car, and adjust the gap on the plugs as needed. good luck.
