With the 3.0 liter you have to remove the intake plenum to get to 3 of the plugs so make sure you get a replacement intake plenum gasket to replace after you change out the plugs. Takes a bit of time to do.

I an looking for a diagram how to change plugs on a 3.0 v6 24v alfa romeo 1999 model please


no need for a diagram
take a photo before you start doing the work

you may have to take of plastic covering to see all the plug leads

if the plugs are deep in the motor in plug tubes
you use the plug lead long part to clip onto the undone plug and pull it out

best do one plug at a time
pull of the plug lead / undo spark plug / fit new spark plug
replace lead
repeat till all plugs are changed

Where are my spark plugs located in my 02 Gmc envoy?


Attached is a diagram of where the plugs and coilpacks are located, you need to remove the air intake resonator box to access this area. Plugs should be changed around 100K miles. Use only AC Delco 41-103 Iridium plugs. #1 is the coilpack and #5 is the spark plug

Where are the spark plugs located on a 1992 buick century? and how do i remove them? and could you send me a picture or video?


Your Buick either has the 3.1 V-6 or probably the 3800 V-6...you can trace each spark plug wire to each spark plug...I recommend the AC plugs platinum tip as your Buick came with. The Auto Parts store can confirm the spark plug gap...change only one at a time...so you don't confuse the firing order...sorry no pics available... Also use anti seeze on the plug threads...and use lubricant to seal each plug wire at each connection...also makes them remove easier next time...:)

Firing Order diagram for 2006 Ford Explorer


Hope this helps. The ignition coil:
  • changes low-voltage pulses from the PCM to high-voltage pulses.
  • fires 2 spark plugs simultaneously.
  • has 3 transformers.
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 1 and 5
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 2 and 6
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 3 and 4
Spark plug wires:
  • carry high-voltage pulses from the ignition coil to the spark plugs.
The spark plugs:
  • change high-voltage pulses to spark at the gap, which ignites the fuel and air mixture.
The firing order is 1-4-2-5-3-6.

Location of spark plugs in 2005 dodge dakota


To change the sparks on a 2005 4.7L Dodge Dakota you will need the following:
  • Spark plug socket
  • Ratchet
  • Torque wrench
  • Extension
  • Flat-tip screwdriver
  • Make sure the truck is cold!!!

Note you will have to remove the air intake located at the top of the engine, and will have to move some of the coolant lines out of the way.

At the top of the engine there are 4 sparks on each side. The coils are held in place with a 10mm bolt. Undo the 10mm bolt and unclip the coil. Next pull out the coil.

Insert the socket, with extension into the spark plug hole.

Remove spark plug.

Check the gap on new spark plug, it should match stock.

tighten to approximately 25ft.lbs. (check spark-plug packaging for exact torque requirements).

repeat this process with all other sparks.

be sure that no dirt gets into the spark plug holes.
