How to change spark plugs


The spark plugs are located under the four spark plug wires that go through the middle of the valve cover on top of the engine. With a twisting motion, remove the plug wires from the spark plugs. Then using a 5/8 inch spark plug socket and inch extension on a 3/8 inch ratchet, remove the spark plugs. Gap the new plugs to the correct gap (located on the label on the underside of the hood), and in stall into the holes in the valve cover using only your hand to get them started, then tightening with the ratchet. Then reinstall the wires back to their original locations, and you are finished.....

How to change spark plugs in 05 g6


The G6's spark plugs are located under the plastic cover of the engine compartment for the 3.5 V6, under the spark plug wire boots (the plastic ends of the wires you plug on top of your spark plugs). Once you get the plastic cover off you cant miss them, just follow the plug wire cables. They are easy to change if youremember to do one at a time, (since order does matter, don't mix up the cables!). Also don't over tighten them, expensive damage will be caused. Its best to borrow a torque wrench and read the new spark plug box instructions for proper tightness.
Generally if you have trouble finding spark plugs, it might be best to let someone else do this one rather than risk the damage. But there is no better way to learn than by doing it yourself.
if for some reason you dont do them one at a time which is a bad thing to do. theFiring Order is 123456
also the
Spark Plug Gap for the 3.9L is
1.00 mm
0.040 in

Spark Plug Gap for the 3.5L is
1.52 mm
0.060 in

if you require further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you from there. If this helped you please feel free to rate the solution. Thanks -Midwest-tek

I need to replace spark plugs and wires on my santa fe v-6. Do i need to remove the intake manifold?


There may be an engine cover over the valve covers that is a big piece of plastic that may say Hyundai, or Santa Fe,

I believe its three or four 10mm retaining nuts that hold it on, take that engine cover off, and there should be 3 wires in the top of each valve cover, those big wires are the spark plug wires, and they actually connect to the spark plug which is down inside the cylinder.
To remove, you will need a 3/8 drive ratchet, a long extension, I would say 6-12 inches, long enough, but not too long, and a 5/8" spark plug socket.
Take one of the spark plug wires out, and put your long extension with the spark plug socket on it down into the hole that the big wire came out of and you should find a spark plug at the end of the tunnel.

How do you replace the spark plugs on a 2003 Lincoln LS


You will need to take off the air intake and a few hoses to get access to the plastic covers that are hiding the spark plugs, there is 6 bolts on each plastic cover, followed by the 8 bolts under the plastic covers, 1 bolt for each spark plug. Be careful unplugging the coils from the wiring, the plastic tabs are, well a Ford part, so they break easy. And that's about it. It's a ***** to do but it saves 100's. I have had to do mine 6 times now, so get rid of your Lincoln now while you have the chance, I have invested 27,000.00 dollars(after the warranty) into mine and have only had it for 3 years. Good luck.

Trying to change spark plugs


??? ...the spark plug wires are under a plastic guard. The plugs are lower - follow the wires. The ones at the firewall side of the engine are hard to get to...some suggest tilting the engine to access them easier...I laid on top of the engine and got them out.
