I need to locate the number 4 spark plug wire to replace the spark plug can you tell me how to locate this wire on a 05 ford expedition

Your vehicle doesn't have spark plug wires . Has coil on plug ignition system . Eight individual coils sitting right on top of the spark plugs . An the spark plugs have the tendency to break in the cylinder head . Does your ford have the 5.4 L 3 valve engine . Your best bet is to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop that has the tool to take the broken spark plug out off the cylinder head.

How too install a valve cover gasket on a 01 Chrysler Sebring lxi

I guess you are wondering about those little rubber insert that are around all the bolts and spark plug openings. Replace them all. They will all be brittle and cracked by now adding oil drips and misfires from the spark plugs. Also change out the spark plugs and wires to save yourself the trouble of removing that upper intake manifold again. I had a dealer and 2 mechanic send me on a $1600 goose chase a few years back because they were too lazy too find the bad spark plug wire under the manifold. After a while I fixed it myself. I think Rock Auto has those rubber plug sets at a reasonable price.

How much will what cost?

The car has to be diagnosed to determine
what it any parts are needed.

Any obd code, is just a starting place,they don't tell you
what is wrong.

All price questions or quotes on any product,
should be addressed to the merchant, you may
consider doing business with.

When you know what is needed you can tell the
cost of parts from a web such as napa or stop
by any auto parts store

You may save $300.00 or more in labor for a
job that you can do in less than an hour,IF, you
know how to do it

if you are sure there is no spark and you have replaced the coil,then the only other thing it could be is your spark control works off your computer to tell your plugs when to fire..somettimes they go out only when they heat up and will start working again after they cool down,,but sometime they don"t give you any warning and just stop working all together.. would say you have a bad Spark Control is pretty easy to fix, just make sure you use or buy the right tools to take it off , ask at the Auto parts store to get the right tool, and the right part..

Is there a way to know if you have a park plug issue or spark plug wire issue?

To check a spark plug it must be removed from the engine. The insulator should be a light golden brown with no oily deposits. The gap should also be checked and compared to the specification in the owners manual or a repair manual. Spark plug wires can be tested with a spark plug wire tester. A tool that looks somewhat like a spark plug with a clear section in the middle and a clamp on one end. This tool gets plugged into a spark plug wire and clamped to a ground or the engine block. Start the engine and check for spark through the clear part of the tool. Also run the car at night or in a dark garage and check to see that none of the wires are raking.

When do you replace the spark plugs and do you need a special tool

Recommended spark plug replacement is at 60,000 miles. It is also recommended that the plug wires be replace at the same time. The only tools you will need will be a rachet, an extension, and the proper size spark plug socket. When replacing the spark plugs, remove one at a time, never remove all wires at the same time. When putting new plugs in, be sure to keep them straight when tightening. Tighten just until snug.

On the highway car drives ok .but when im at a light the car starts to idle rough .

while car is idling in park, use a can of throttle body cleaner to spray around intake manifold and hoses to check for a vacuum leak. If you spray an area and the idle smooths out while spraying that area, that is where the vacuum leak is. Also you may need to clean the mass air flow sensor with a can of mass air flow sensor cleaner.

What do these trouble codes mean po306 cyclinder misfire detected .how do i fix the problem?

it means you have a misfire on the number 6 cylinder

this could be caused by a whole lot of reasons.

start by inspecting for a bad plug wire if it has them

check for fire on the cylinder with a spark test tool from local part store

if it is a coil-on-plug set-up, check the coil for fire

replace coil/plug wire as needed, replace boot on coil if coil needed, replace spark plugs

Spark plug wires

Because of the air plenum that site on top of the engine (6 cylinder) changing the spark plug wires and spark plugs is very difficult on these models. Sadly, the easiest way is to remove the air plenum on top and even the winshield wiper cowling section due to the location of the wires and plugs. If you aren't a mechanic, or have the tools, you may want to forego this task. I believe the wires and spark plugs should be changed about once every 70-80,000 miles on these models.
