You aer not clear about your problem, when replacing plugs and wires all the boots need to stay in place, the larger boot goes around the spark plug, making sure the metal is secure around the tip of the plug, the oppisite end fits the distributer cap, making sure the metal at the end of the wire is securely in the hole. You said you have 3 boots, you should boots for each end of each plug wire and a plug wire for each spark plug

P300 code on a 1998 toyota camry LE V-6


I would get a compression test done. The car should still run at idle with a coil or 2 disconnected, perhaps rough but should still run. I don't want to get ahead of myself but I am thinking head gasket issues.

I cannot find the spark plugs on my camry !!!


First, you didn't mention which engine your 1994 Toyota Camry is equipped with. (This is really MUST-KNOW information if you want help with fixing your car.) There is a 3.0L V-6 engine and a 2.2L 4-Cylinder engine. Two TOTALLY different animals! I'll just take the extra time to answer for BOTH of them....

If your Camry is equipped with a 3.0L V-6 engine, You cannot find the spark plug wires because there are none, That engine is equipped with Coil On Plug (COP) ignition. The coils on the left bank (the side of the engine near the radiator) are located under the plastic cover on top of the engine. The coils for the right bank (the side of the engine near the firewall) are located under the upper intake plenum. The plenum MUST be removed to access them. (this is also required to replace the spark plugs.)

If you have the 2.2L 4-cylinder engine, the wires run down the center of the valve cover and the boots go down through the valve cover to the plugs. The other end of the wires attach to the distributor cap at the rear (drivers side) of the engine.

I have a 2003 v6 toyota camry. i am changing the spark plugs for this vehicle. i am having trouble locating three of the six spark plugs as a mechanist told me there should be three more...where are they...


The back three spark plugs on the V6 are difficult to reach without a socket extension. if part of the engine is hindering you from taking out back plugs. then remove the part thats in the way. then replce when done. have a good day !!

1998 Toyota Camry XLE 3.O liter - sometime misfires, according to Advance it the # 4 cylinder.


Run your vehicle with the hood open at night in a dark place with the headlights off. Look at the spark plug wires to see if spark is jumping out onto your chassis. If you have the long tubular boots, remove the one going to #4 cylinder and see if spark jumps to chassis through the side wall of boot. If so, replace the wire. It also could be the #4 post on your distributor. It's part of the cap assembly and they are usually pretty cheap to replace. Replace rotor button when replacing cap. The rotor button is usually less than 5 bucks.

98 toyota camry spark plug wire keeps poping out of manifold and makes engine run sluggish ( runs good when you push it back in ) is there any way to keep wire from poping out ? ( Im unable to push spark...


Remove the wire from the plug and look inside the Boot, there should be some metal prongs that clamp onto the plug, check to see if they are set right, so that when you install the boot on the Spark Plug they will clamp and stay on the plug. If you're not sure what it should look like, pull off the boot on the plug next to the one you are working on and compare the two. You can use a long flat bladed screwdriver to bend the prongs, make sure you're Engine and Ignition are off when you do this.

1998 ford expedition misses, ,shudders, replace spark plugs 6 months ago, and 2 COP's. #4 misfires again!!


The coil is not seated correct or it has become bad also. These have a tendency to mess up on a regular basis. I use a di-electric grease on mine to help it from misfiring. I would take that #4 back off and re-seat it and see how it performs.

What do these trouble codes mean po306 cyclinder misfire detected .how do i fix the problem?


it means you have a misfire on the number 6 cylinder

this could be caused by a whole lot of reasons.

start by inspecting for a bad plug wire if it has them

check for fire on the cylinder with a spark test tool from local part store

if it is a coil-on-plug set-up, check the coil for fire

replace coil/plug wire as needed, replace boot on coil if coil needed, replace spark plugs

How to change spark plugs 1998 Expedition


Hi Glloyd806

the spark plug gap is .054
This is at best difficult and if not done right can destroy your heads ( about $2700.00). My advice is to have the dealership take the risk. However, If you decide to change the spark plugs yourself you'll need to know a few critical things first.
The 5.4L has aluminium heads, there is a design flaw in that the thread depth is to shallow, only 4 or 5 threads. because of this it is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to apply anti-sieze on the threads of each spark plug and torque the plugs to NO MORE THAN 14 LBS. Also, if the plugs have been improperly changed before, it is to late, and you will rip the threads out when removing the old plugs.
Still wanting to do it yourself? OK here is how it is done;
Each spark plug has it's own coil, you will need a 8mm socket to remove the retaining bolt. Then disconect the coil wires on the coil. pull out the coil assembly (coil and boot). they may be stuck a little so you may need to wiggle it out. Now you are ready to remove the spark plug. You will need a THIN WALLED 5/8in spark plug socket, at least one extension, and on the #3,4,7, and 8 spark plugs you'll need a universal joint. the holes that the spark plugs are in are machined very thght and I found that I needed to try several different sockets before I found one that would fit inside the hole. Remove the old plug. apply anti-sieze on the threads of the new plug and install. DON'T CROSS THREAD, THERE IS ON SECOND CHANCE! TIP.. replace the old rubber boot with a new one and apply a liberal amount of spark plug moisture protectant gel inside the boot, spark plug end, this will save you from spark plug mis-fire due to moisture in the future. Place the new boot back on the coil and place the coil/boot back into the spark plug hole, it may need some wiggeling. Replace the coil retaining bolt (anti-sieze), reconnect the coil wires. Now do this 7 more times.

In all honesty, take it to a Mechanic, because this is a real pain in the....

Best of luck, and I'm not responsible for any damages you do :(
