Obtain manufacturer recommended spark plugs for your vehicle with proper gap (.044 from toyota forum)
3/8 drive ratchet with extension and spark plug socket.
Only perform spark plug change on a COLD engine.
Remove one spark plug boot at a time, so as not to confuse wire location.
Remove spark plug number 1 and replace with new one, recommended torque is 150 inch/lbs from toyota forum, but if you don't have a torque wrench, just snug them up good, don't overtighten.

My 1998 Corolla front wheel drive with 1.8 liter engine is getting gas but will not start. Does it have a timing belt, or a chain?

The 98' has a chain, not a belt. The chain should last the life of the engine. I think you have other problems with her not starting, Have you checked for spark at the plugs?

How do you change the spark plugs on a 1998 toyota corolla?

pop the spark plug wires out of the engine, get a pretty long extension and the right size socket, and untwist them out, replace, (make sure if the new plugs need to be gapped, you do so properly, this will save you on mpg and spark plug life) and put it back together making sure you put the wires back in the same order you took them out! Good luck and please rate me!

Spark Plug Location for 1997 Toyota 4 Runner ?

Follow the plug wires to the location of the plugs. You will need swivel scokets or sometime called wobble sockets to get to where there located and long extentions, plus a lot of time!!!!

Toyota corolla engine stopped

hey, this isnt a solution (i dont think), just a comment, the corolla is equipped with a timing chain, located inside the engine with the cams, the belt that you see is a serpentine belt to run all other components like the altinator, water pump and ac. just letting you know. Hope this info is helpful!
