Toyota Highlander_ How to change plugs


The Toyota Highlander is available in three different engine sizes: 2.4, 3.0 and 3.3 liter. The basic technique for replacing spark plugs is used for both engine sizes, but depending on the engine size you need to remove different parts from the Toyota Highlander to gain access to the spark plugs.
  1. 1 Pull the hood release and raise the hood on the Highlander. Allow the engine plenty of time to cool.
  2. 2 Remove some components to reach the spark plugs. On a 3.3 liter engine, unscrew and remove the V-bank cover and intake air tank. On a 2.4 and 3.0 liter engine, remove the number one engine cover.
  3. 3 Locate the ignition coils and spark plug wires that connect directly to the spark plugs or directly to the engine in the Toyota Highlander. In 2001 and 2002 models, theses are on the front and back of the engine. On models made after 2002, the spark plugs are along the sides. Grab the ignition coils or spark plug wires by the thick plastic piece at the end of the wire. Squeeze the end and turn it to release it from the spark plug. Pull back to remove the plug from the engine.
  4. 4 Slide the spark plug socket over the spark plug. The most common size of spark plug socket used on a Toyota Highlander is 16mm. Turn the socket to the left to unscrew and remove the spark plug from the cylinder well.
  5. 5 Apply a thin coat of anti-seize compound to the spark plug thread and into the wire boot to reduce the chance of sticking.
  6. 6 Insert the spark plug into the well and manually turn the plug into place. If you cannot reach the plug well manually, insert the plug into the socket and extension and use the extension to turn the plug into place. Do not use a socket wrench or flexible extension for this process because their force damages the spark plug.
  7. 7 Connect the ignition coil or spark plug wire to the spark plug. Turn to lock it into place.
  8. 8 Continue this process for the rest of the spark plugs. Replace any removed items onto the engine and lower the hood.

Where is the spark plugs located for the 2002 4 cylinder highlander located. Plan on replacement.


First, remove the no. 1 engine cover. Locate the ignition coils, these will be squarish-looking packs with spark plug wires (4 of them) coming out. The wires should be going to the spark plugs, which are on the front and back side of the engine.
Grab the ignition coils or spark plug wires by the thick plastic piece at the end of the wire. Squeeze the end and turn it to release it from the spark plug. Pull back to remove the plug from the engine.
Slide the spark plug socket over the spark plug. The most common size of spark plug socket used on a Toyota Highlander is 16mm. Turn the socket to the left to unscrew and remove the spark plug from the cylinder well.

How do i replace the drivers side tail light on a 2006 highlander?


It was very easy. Open the back door to the highlander, remove the plastic compartment cover. You will expose the nuts and bolts that hold the asssembly to the car. Remove the nuts - be careful not to drop any inside the cavity. Once you have all the nuts removed, you can remove the lamps and pull the tail light assembly off. Put the new assembly on, replace nuts, and reinstall the lamps. Easy.

How easy is it to change the spark plugs in a 03 highlander?


It is very easy, on all new vehicel, you have to know there is a plastic engine cover on the engine, just simply remove all bolts and set the cover free.Follow on the engine head you will see two head, and you will see 3 black objects these are the ignition coil on the spark plug, just undo the screw and remove them, you can never misplace them becaue they are all have unequal length of electical wire.

Use a spark plug deep socket to remove the spark plug and replace with a new one. always follow the OEM booklet of which one you should use. Reinstall all spark plug by first seat them with your hand tight and then turn them tight enough , do not over torque the thread will damage.

Replace all coils on the plug you will hear or feel a click sound, start the engine and see if any funny thing if not then reinstall the cover and you are set to go..

hope this help...

Driver side wiper wont work


One side does not work? Can you move the arm with your hands? If so, look for a loose nut that holds the wiper arm on. Remove the plastic trim on the wiper arm base, and tighten the 12 millimeter bolt. Please advise if this helps.

If you look at the armrest side that is "away" from where it is attached to the seat, you will see a small circular cover. Using a small flat screwdriver, pry this cover off; it is held in by 2 small claws. When the cover is removed, it will expose the bolt that you need to remove to remove the armrest. Hint: tape the end of the scrwdriver so you do not deform the plastic cover or the part that the cover fits into. Quite an easy proceedure.
