Replacing spark plugs on a 2001 Acura TL 3.2

I wanted to know how to replace the spark plugs on my own or do I need to have a professional do it? I think one or several of my spark plugs must have gone bad. The motor rides hard and makes a loud sound when the car is moving.

Hello,

My name is Chris. I have 20 years acura experience.

If you have some technical experience changing spark plugs before you can it on these.

procedure:

remove spark plug coil packs on top of valve covers. 8mm socket and ratchet.
twist coil packs and remove from cover/plug. use 6 inch 3/8 extention and 5/8 plug socket and ratchet...remove plugs from tube in valve cover. Use NGK plugs!!!!! or Nipondenso plugs only!!!! Nothing else.... trust me on this one.

However, I think your problem is more than just plugs. you need to explain what sound your are experiencing... please be detailed. when does it happen and how? does it have a check engine light?
does it run rough when you coast only?
Thanks.

The cost of having that replaced professionally varies considerably depending on labor rates/parts in your area. This is not a question that can be answered accurately over the world-wide web. You need to contact your local repair shops with that question.

How to change spark plugs on 2005 acura tl


Hi,

you need a 6 inch extension, short 3/8 ratchet, 5/8 plug socket, 3/8 swivel "u" joint, (sold at sears) 8mm 1/4 drive socket deep well and 1/4 inch ratchet.

find the coil packs (6 total, three in each head.)
remove the two retaining nuts holding each coil pack using 1/4 8mm socket and ratchet.
twist the pack to break the sticking boot below.
pull up (be careful to not rip the boots however it may still happen but rare.)
remove coil packs, the rear is a little more difficult with the intake.
use 6" extension and u joint and ratchet to remove plugs and replace.
reverse order to assemble. Good luck, and hoped this helped.
