Remove the plastic beauty cover to expose the ignition coil packs, one per cylinder. Remove the wire harnes from the pack and remove the 2 10mm bolts that hold the coil pack in place. Pull out the coil pack to expose the plug. You will need a long extension to reach the plug. You may have to remove the screws holding the coolant tank to get at the back coil on the drivers side and the air filter box for the back coil on the passenger side.

How do you change spark plugs


Hi Gary!

If you got a CAR and not a truck, there are a few things you need to pay attention to when replacing spark plugs.

You need to make sure your spark plugs are the issue for whatever the problem is.
Take a 16mm SPARKPLUGS spanner (it's a special sort of tool that you buy in the shop, unless you have it, don't bother to try with anything else, or your could do some damage), unplug one of the cables attached to one of the sparkplugs (make sure you don't unplug more that one, so you won't mess the order), take your magic tool (sparkplug socket spanner or whatever it is called) fit it on top of the sparkplug, (listen for the clicking) and then twist it left until the sparkplug is out.

Have a look to your sparkplug, and see if there is any carbon on it (if it's black, it has to be replaced/sandpapered)

repeat the operation to the other (alledgedly 3) sparkplugs, naking sure you DO NOT MESS UP the order of the cables that connect to the sparkplugs.

If finally you've decided it is time to replace the sparkplugs, under NO circumstances, replace less than ALL of them. (unless you replace them on the car of someone you don't like)

I drive a 95 toyota 4 runner.I would like to know the right way to check my sparkplug wires if working p roper.


You can fabricate a tester from a 6 inch long mongol pencil. Sharpen one end and drill a 1/8" hole in the middle. Now remove the sparkplug wire from each sparkplug and insert the pencil onto the sparkplug wire with the dsharpened end connected or touching the ground or any metal part of the engine. Start your engine and you should see sparks jumping on the drilled hole on the pencil which indicates that your spark plug wire is okay.

How to change spark plugs


Those are as easy as they come these days. Mark each spark plug wire with a piece of tape with the cylinder # written on it, so as not to mix up the wires. Remove each spark plug wire by firmly grasping the wire by the boot (do not pull on the wire) and twist it back and forth a few times while pulling slowly. It should pop off without a great deal of effort. If it is seized and it breaks, you will have to replace the wire, or at the very least replace the terminals (if you can get some). Use an air hose and blow around the base of each spark plug to dislodge any loose dirt that could fall into the cylinders (not absolutely necessary, but a good idea). Remove each spark plug with a spark plug socket and extension and ratchet (I forget which size socket, it's either 5/8 or 13/16). Check the gaps of each new spark plug (typically around 0.035 in). re-install each new spark plug by hand (do not cross-thread them) and once you have ensured that the plug is threaded in properly, tighten the plug until it seats, and then tighten an additional 1/16 of a turn. Repeat this for the remaining plugs. Re-install wires to the corresponding spark plugs. You're done!

How do I remove the rear three spark plugs on a toyota avalon 1998


Hi, to change spark plug first remove coil over connecting clip ensuring to depress connector release. Next remove coil over retaining bolts. Remove coil over carefully directing coil toward driver side until rubber end able to flex out of sparkplug access tube. Remove sparkplug using sparkplug socket with rubber insert. Had to remove ratchet to gain enough clearance. At this point you should be able to remove sparkplug by tilting extension & socket toward drivers side of car. Then lay horizontal & remove toward passenger side of car. If unable to gain access in this manner you probably have too long an extension. Take care as not to damage spark plug coil over as they are considerably expensive.

How do i change spark plugs in 1992 buick le sabre


To change the plugs, do one at a time so not to mix up the sparkplug wires, remove plug wire from a plug, use sparkplug socket to remove the sparkplug make sure to gap new plugs, ask parts store for the gap setting they will give it to you when plugs are bought, the plug gapper is about $2.00. and that about it, the rear plugs are a little harder to get to but the same way to remove, some buicks came with metal heat sheild over the sparkplug boot in the rear cylinders make sure to reuse, you will know if you have them they will slide right off old boot.

I need to change the spark plugs where r they located and which kind is the best for my car because there is a single pin and twin pin.


Hi! The sparkplugs are concealed with the top engine cover. YOu need to remove the top cover using a torx bit. Once removed you'll see the spark plug wires, pull the wires and you'll now have access to the sparkplugs. Rotate counter clockwise to remove the plugs and replace using the new sparkplugs. I strongly suggest an IRIDIUM spark plugs but if not available you'll be good at PLATINUM both single pin. Hope this helps and have a good one!

How to change spark plugs on 2003 camry


Find out what your spark plug gap is, and the size of plugs you require from your owners manuel. Purchase a Spark plug socket for your rachett (also a rachett extension if you dont have one) And a set of Gap Measurers. Pull out the spark plug leads from the base making sure you don't pull on the cable (can damage the lead if you yank on the cable instead of the boot) and then screw out the old sparkplug and check for damage/wear. Set the gap on your new sparkplugs and screw them back in using a torque wrench for the final turn or if you don't have one only hand (do the final turn without using the rattchet just grab the wratchet extension and twist with your hand).
