    This job was a pc of cake. After knowing where the plugs were, the job was done in about 90 mins. Now if I can figure out why the #5 cylinder spark plug sleeve had a conciderable amount of oil at the bottom. Is there some kind of seal that seperates this sleeve from the oil flow in the top of the engine. I would appreciate any info someone has with this problem. Thanks

    We are going to take a look at this job and decide what we are going to do with it. This vehicle has almost 400K miles. It had a timing belt replaced 30K miles ago. This oil problem is a new one. Thank's for the info.

Follow the plug wires to the location of the plugs. You will need swivel scokets or sometime called wobble sockets to get to where there located and long extentions, plus a lot of time!!!!

    IT sound like you valve cover is leaking oil on to the plug. This is easy to change out. A few bolts to take off. Clean the old gasket off of the valve cover & head. I use Weather stripping glue to install gasket unto the valve cover. Them the gasket itself will seal back on top of the head. Should not take but a few hours to do or less???

Firing order for 2002 toyota runner


The firing order is 1-2-3-4-5-6 but it uses direct ignition so it has a coil for each spark plug.
The cylinders on the passenger side are 1-3-5 and the driver side is 2-4-6.
