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

1994 toyota camry 3.0 engine misfiring 1,3,5 cyls.


cylinders 135 are on rear off engine by fire wall, does your car have all coils or only front three, if this is the case, if no oil found into spark plug tube try replacing wires first, if oil in them replace valve cover gaskets and gromets, dont forget a fresh set of wires.

This will have a direct coil over ignition with a coil over each spark plug. The coil is the electrical part over the spark plug. The coil also has a rubber part that is called the boot or spark plug boot. The boots can be purchased separately but the coils will come with new boots.

is it #5 coil,

Have you checked to see if there is any spark coming out of the number 5 coil?



and should I replace the coil and spark plug and what should the spark plug be gapped at?

When was the last time the spark plugs where changed? It may be due for all the spark plugs to be changed. The spark plug gap is usually listed on the emissions sticker under the hood. It should be .050 - .056 or very close to that.

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.

How do u change the spark plugs on a 1994 toyota camry


Start with a cool/cold engine.

Four cylinder: Remove spark plug wire boots (four in a row on top of the engine). DO NOT PULL ON THE WIRE only the rubber top. Make sure the wires are numbered, if not, number them. They MUST go back to the same hole they came out of after the new plugs are installed. Remove the spark plugs with a 16mm spark plug wrench. Install new plugs (any auto parts store can tell you what your options are here): Start threading the new plugs by hand so you don't cross thread the engine head by accident. Then complete tightening them gently. Spark plugs are supposed to be tightened to a specific torque: 13ftlbs in this case. If you choose to not use a torque wrench do not overtighten the plugs. Reinstall boots securely.

6-Cylinder: Remove engine cover, if present. Disconnect the six connectors on each of the ignition coils. Remove each of the six ignition coil bolts and then remove the coils by pulling straight up -- arrange them so that you know which goes back where. Remove and install the six plugs as described above. Reinstall the ignition coils with their bolts (torque: 69 in-lbs), then wires. Replace the cover.

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

Changing spark plugs on lincoln town car


Remove the spark plug wires, remove the spark plugs,replace them. Do this one cylinder at a time if you never did it. On that year you may need to remove the upper intake to access the plugs on one side. In that case go to a shop. This would not be a novice job.

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 :(
