How to Test Spark Plugs in Audi A6 car?


1) Test the spark plug ignition. For that disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug.
2) Then touch the spark plug wire close to a metal surface of the car. Then spin the key in ignition switch. If you will see a spark or hear a crackling noise. This means the wire to the spark plug has voltage in it.
3) If there is no spark when you crack the engine it means that a spark plug wire is dead.
4) Check out all the battery cable, ignition wires and coil wires are hooked up properly to their points.
5) If any of the battery cable, ignition wires and coil wires is loose then this can also relate to no spark.
6) But if all the battery cable, ignition wires and coil wires are properly connected then its time to replace the spark plugs.
7) Before replacing clean the old spark plugs connections and recheck.
8) Many a time’s cleaning or moving the spark plug connections makes it work.
9) If nothing is getting the spark plug to spark, then it needs replacement.
This will help. Thanks.

    Changing spark plugs in any car


    When changing spark plugs I find it best to remove only one wire at a time. I remove the wire, change the plug, measure the old wire against the new wires, and replace the wire before moving to the next wire and plug. This way I do not have to know the firing order for the plugs.
    Don't for get to check the plug gap.

    How to check and fix a cylinder #1 firing problem. Cylinder, plug, or wiring?


    You can test each spark plug, but disconnecting the wire as the engine is running. If it runs rougher, then that plug was good. If there's no change, then that plug may be bad. If it runs rougher, it could also mean the wire is bad.


    To test the ignition coil (you may have one coil for each spark plug, or one for every two plugs, this part I am unsure of with your model) remove the wire from the plug and then remove the spark plug, then put the plug into the wire (DO THIS WITH THE CAR OFF). Start the car and while using INSULATED PLIERS touch the plug tip to a good ground spot such as the frame even the engine itself, but not to the battery. If there's a spark or crackling sound, then that coil is good.

    You can test each wire by hooking it up to a voltmeter and setting the resistance to 20,000 OHM.
    The reading will vary based on the length of wire. 12inch wire may register 6-7 while a 30inch wire may register 8-9. If it registers below 6 regardless of length, then the wire should be replaced.

    We replaced the plug wires and now the car will


    If you're SURE you got all the wires on the correct way, then one or some of the wire leads are possibly not attached to the plug itself firmly. Or attached to the Cap correctly. Possibly old piece of wire left on plugs.

    Check to make sure you have not cross the wires and your firing order is off by one wire.
