Hey alanacheson,
The spark plugs are underneath that cover on top of the engine (should say VVTi on the cover).
Just take that cover off, and then you will see the four ignition coils. Take off the four ignition coils (with igniters), and you will see the four relatively long holes underneath, and the spark plugs are at the bottom of those holes. You will need a good spark plug socket (preferably a thin wall socket) and a 6" or 12" extension. This is actually a very easy job, and can be completed in less than an hour.
Hope this helps.

check spark plug of the cyl. switch plug with another cyl, run engine until warm to see if misfire still comes on. if it stays on the same cyl. fault could be high tension wire or coil or worse leaky valve or rings. if misfire switched to the other cyl just change plug or better replace all plugs

Toyota echo check engine gas cap


In my wife's case it was that the neck of the filler (where it contacts the gas cap) rusted. It didn't allow a good seal. Since it was a 2005 we also replaced the gas cap in 2013.

2005 toyota echo two days before i wash engine. then engine working not smoothly some vibration and not going smoothly what can i do?


Sounds like you got the ignition system wet. Remove the coils, and dry out the spark plug wells. It would be a good idea to apply dielectrig grease sparingly to the inside of the plug boots.

Where are located the spark plugs in a 4 cyl camry 2007 and how i can replace?


They are in the engine valve cover, each plug has its own ignition coil on the top of it, no plug wires, you must unbolt the 4 coils and remove them from the top of the spark plugs and see them aside, then use a 5/8" deep spark plug socket to remove them. Below is a picture of one of the 4 ignition coils.

What are the specs for torque of the spark plugs in 2002 Echo


Remove carefully, engine being cold. Aluminum heads have fragile plug threads. Replace with new plug winch should normally be pre-gaped at .043 in (for Bosch Platinum plugs the gap is .032). Tighten snugly but don't use too much force. (I used torque wrench at 15 ft/lb) Replace coil module and reconnect wire and you are done.

Most Echo owners consider the Denso (Part #SK16R11) or NGK (Part #IFR5T11) Iridium plugs to be the best replacement for this vehicle and they can both last for 100,000+ miles.

Good luck and happy new years.

Replace spark plugs with plat core plug


Platinum plugs are NOT recommended for the Echo. The heat ranges are different. Put the right plugs in it (buy them from a Toyota dealer) and see if your problem vanishes. I get this quite a bit, customers put in new plugs, and it runs worse than it did before they changed the plugs. Note that ALL Toyota engines have a specific plug engineered for each engine. Platinums do not work unless the engine was designed for it. Same with iridium and NO Toyota runs well on the "split fire" plugs. If the problem persidts, change the coils around, see if the misfire "moves" to a new location, and you get a DTC P-0300, P-0301 and P-0302. If so, your coil pack may have failed, BUT, do the plugs first.
