Is a special tool required to change spark plugs in the 3.2L engine?
you will need 5/8 spark plug socket as well as a long extension to replace spark plugs.That you can get at local auto part stores.Plugs are on either rocker cover....there are 3 ign coils on each rocker cover that need to be removed then remove the plugs You will need a 5/8 spark plug socket as well as a long extension to replace them 8mm socket holds the individual coils on.
ON 3.2L there are acually no spark plug wires, the engine acually has whats called, coil over plug which means the the power to make a spark plug spark, happens right over your spark plug. Now in order to get to the spark plugs which are under the coils you have to first unscrew the screws, there'll be two phillips head screws per coil, after that just pull the coil out, it should be about 3 inches, the spark plugs are at the bottom of the hole that you just uncoverd, you'll need an extesion for your socket in order to reach them, take them out, replace, put the coil back on top making sure that its seated ontop of the spark plug, put the two screws back in, tighten and your done with one, continue for all.
this should help.thanks.Helpmech.
