I hope this helps more. its hard to explain these things with out being at the car. but i hope this helps. it pretty easy just pull one wire off, unscrew plug from moter, replace with new one, replace with new wire. and repeat 4 or 6 times depending on what engine you have. but write back with anymore specific questions you have.

When you're removing spark plugs, work on one at a time. Don't start by removing the plug wires all at once, because, unless you number them, they may become mixed up. Take a minute before you begin and number the wires with tape.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable, and if the vehicle has been run recently, allow the engine to thoroughly cool.
When removing the spark plugs on the V-6 engine only on the firewall side, it may be necessary to remove the windshield wiper/motor module assembly from the vehicle. This will allow more room to work between the engine and the engine compartment firewall. Refer to for removal procedures.

  1. On V-6 models only, remove the windshield wiper/motor module assembly from the vehicle for access to the spark plugs on the firewall side.
  2. Carefully twist the spark plug wire boot to loosen it, then pull upward and remove the boot from the plug. Be sure to pull on the boot and not on the wire, otherwise the connector located inside the boot may become separated.
  3. Using compressed air, blow any water or debris from the spark plug well to assure that no harmful contaminants are allowed to enter the combustion chamber when the spark plug is removed. If compressed air is not available, use a rag or a brush to clean the area.
0900c1528003c1ab.jpgFig. 4: Once all dirt is removed from around the spark plug, carefully loosen and remove the plug <1999 Dodge grand Caravan Tune up - 0900c1528003c1ac.jpgxya.net/uploads/images/0900c1528003c1ac.jpg" alt="0900c1528003c1ac.jpg" class="h_mi" />Fig. 5: Pull the used spark plug out of the cylinder head once it is completely loosened Remove the spark plugs when the engine is cold, if possible, to prevent damage to the threads. If removal of the plugs is difficult, apply a few drops of penetrating oil(WD40) or silicone spray to the area around the base of the plug, and allow it a few minutes to work.
  1. Using a spark plug socket that is equipped with a rubber insert to properly hold the plug, turn the spark plug counterclockwise to loosen and remove the spark plug from the bore.
WARNING Be sure not to use a flexible extension on the socket. Use of a flexible extension may allow a shear force to be applied to the plug. A shear force could break the plug off in the cylinder head, leading to costly and frustrating repairs.To install:
  1. Inspect the spark plug boot for tears or damage. If a damaged boot is found, the spark plug wire must be replaced.
  2. Using a wire feeler gauge, check and adjust the spark plug gap. When using a gauge, the proper size should pass between the electrodes with a slight drag. The next larger size should not be able to pass while the next smaller size should pass freely.
  3. Carefully thread the plug into the bore by hand. If resistance is felt before the plug is almost completely threaded, back the plug out and begin threading again. In small, hard to reach areas, an old spark plug wire and boot could be used as a threading tool. The boot will hold the plug while you twist the end of the wire and the wire is supple enough to twist before it would allow the plug to crossthread.
WARNING Do not use the spark plug socket to thread the plugs. Always carefully thread the plug by hand or using an old plug wire to prevent the possibility of crossthreading and damaging the cylinder head bore.
  1. Carefully tighten the spark plug. If the plug you are installing is equipped with a crush washer, seat the plug, then tighten about 1/4 turn to crush the washer. If you are installing a tapered seat plug, tighten the plug to specifications provided by the vehicle or plug manufacturer.
  2. Apply a small amount of silicone dielectric compound to the end of the spark plug lead or inside the spark plug boot to prevent sticking, then install the boot to the spark plug and push until it clicks into place. The click may be felt or heard, then gently pull back on the boot to assure proper contact.

Removing Plug Wires from '02 Pontiac Grand Prix, 3.8 Liter V6


often times the connection inside the plug boot gets corroded and it's almost impossible to remove the wires with out damage. when this happens I gennerally replace the wires anyway this saves you problems in the long run . the sparkplug wire removalk pliers are a good investment however they are only as good if the boots themselves are not siezed up on the plugs. I have had this happen alot over the 20 years i been working on vehicles. I usually just twist and pull on the boots till they come off and not worry about damaging them because they should get replaced anyway the new plug wires have a antiseize lubricant to keep from this happening in the future

Does a 2006 corolla 140i have spark plugs


Hi,
Yes it does. I found a site with pictures detailing how to access the spark plugs for replacement. (recommended every 60,000 miles) Plug gap is 1.1mm. Remember to dissconnect wiring and replace plugs one at a time to eliminate the chance of connecting wrong wire to wrong plug position. Wiring must be connected exactly as removed. Check out his page, requires minimal tools and labor.....Please rate this answer! Thanks, Mike

How do you change the spark plugs....can't seem to get the spark plug wires off/loose....don't want to break by continued pulling on them


U DIDNT SPECIFY YEAR BUT SOUNDS LIKE THEY HAVE BEEN ON THE PLUGS FOR A WHILE AND OXIDATION SETS IN ON CONNECTOR. IF YOUR HAVING THAT MUCH OF A PROBLEM A SET OF WIRES MAY BE NECESSARY. IF U CANT GET THEM OFF BY HAND YOUR LOCAL PARTS STORE SHOULD SELL SPARK PLUG WIRE REMOVAL PLIERS. THEY ARE USUALLY PRETTY CHEAP. AND WHEN U PUT THE NEW ONES ON SPARK PLUG BOOT GREASE IS CHEAP AND WORKS WONDERS SO THE NEXT TIME THIS WONT HAPPEN
