First, make sure the spark plug is in tight and not cross threaded (take it and put back in). If the plug is loose, pressure comes out of the cylinder and pushed the wire off.
Second, push the spark plug boot on and massage the air out of the boot.
Hope this helps.

Please don't forget to rate!
Make sure to remove the spark plug wires from the boot end and NOT from the wire itself
Lift up the lock claw and disconnect the holder from the cap
WARNING Do NOT pull on the plug wires to remove them, this may damage the conductor inside.
Align the spline of the cap with the spline groove of the holder
Make sure the holder is correctly installed to the grommet

The firing order is 1-3-4-2
Number one is the one at the pulley end of the motor and number 4 is at the flywheel end of the motor.
System uses a Distributorless Ignition System (DIS) with 2 ignition coils. Cylinders No. 1 and 4 use the same ignition coil. Cylinders No. 2 and 3 use the same ignition coil.

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.

Inspect for the correct routing of the spark plug wires. Improper routing may cause cross-firing. Inspect each wire for any signs of cranks or splits in the wire. Inspect each plug wire boot for tearing, piercing, arcing, carbon tracking or a corroded terminal.
If there is any corrosion, carbon tracking or arcing indicated on a plug wire boot or terminal, both the plug wire and component it was connected to should be replaced.
