Guessing you have the 6 cylinder 2.7 liter engine. You should be able to twist the coil in order to pull the ones that the intake (upper) is in the way and as it is part way out, you can bend it a bit just enough to pull the haed ones out. Hope this helps...

How to change spark plugs


You will need a 12 mm wrench and socket, a 10 mm socket , an extension and the socket for your spark plugs, and an intake plenum gasket. Start by pulling the positive cable from your battery. Next pull the intake cover off the top of the motor. On the drivers side you will see 3 coil packs or "cops" ( coil on plugs) those have two 10mm bolts, one on each side. Remove those , pull the coil, unscrew your spark plug with your socket, and replace.
On huge passenger side you will have to remove the upper intake arch (plenum) to get to the remaining three plugs. Repeat process from the drivers side. !!!!replace your intake gasket when you remove the upper plenum or you will have a vacuum leak.

2005 Toyota Highlander_Change spark plugs


I agree with the previous answer that this a very time consuming job. It took me 2+ hours. I would correct a couple of statements in his answer. He refers to reaching around and behind an exhaust manifold while changing the plugs, but actually if you are working from above the engine (not below) you will be reaching around and behind the intake manifold (not exhaust) during this process. <br /> As he said, the front 3 are very easy - just remove the plastic cover plate and the coils are visible - remove one short bolt, pull the coil off, and using a long extension and a spark plug socket with a rubber insert you can remove the plugs and replace with new ones. <br /> The back 3 are very, very difficult. I did look from underneath the <a href="http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_do_you_change_the_spark_plugs_in_a_2002_Toyota_Highlander#">car</a> and I don't see any way to get to them even if the exhaust manifold was removed. I do believe the best way is from the top. As the previous answer related room to maneuver wrenches and your hands / fingers is very limited. I did remove a couple of minor brackets and hoses and the cruise control wire to get a little more room. Of course, as with the front, you have to remove each individual coil. Also - I believe two tools are critical. First - a small size "stubby" ratchet with a flexible head. You CAN use this type of small flexible ratchet to do the removal and install instead of all finger movement. Second - you need a number of small extensions.... in the 1" - 4" range... why??? because the rear plugs are also "deep" but there is no room to feed a single long extension down between the firewall and the engine head. So - you have to feed the spark plug socket and one short extension, and then feed in another one, and then a 3rd one if necessary until you get enough length to connect the socket to the plug, and the top extension to the ratchet. To remove the extensions - work in reverse.. pull the "assembly" out a little, remove one short extension, pull out further, remove another, etc until you get to the spark plug socket. On the 3 rear plugs - for two of the plugs you work from "your right" side of the intake manifold, or from the driver's side. For the final plug, on the passenger side, work from your left side of the intake manifold. On both sides remove minor hoses or brackets to get a little more room - just be sure to hook them back up.<br /><br />

Cant remove the alternator


There is a trick to this. Put a jack under the front of the sub-frame. Then remove the two front sub-frame bolts. Then let the front of the sub-frame down until you get just enough room to pull the alternator over the top of the intake.

CHANGING SPARK PLUGS 2002 TACOMA 4 CYLINDER


Starting on the pasenger side. Remove the intake tube running from the air filter box to the throttle body and disconnect enough tubes to swing it out of the way. The sparkplugs are down below the small coils you see at the end of the sparkplug wires. With a 10mm socket remove bolt holding the coil, disconnect the plug at the top of the coil by squeezing it at the top and pulling straight off the coils.

Pull the coil straight up. there will be about a 6 inch tube that connects to the top of the spark plug when inserted. You will need a 5/8 sparkplug socket and about 2 feet of extensions to make it easy on yourself. Insert the spark plug socket and extensions down the hole you removed the coils with the tube from and remove and replace the sparkplug. Reinstall your coil onto the engine and move to the next one until you have replaced all the plugs on the passenger side.

Make sure you reconnect all the plugs to the coils, hoses to the intake tube and reinstall your intake tube. The drivers side is a little easier. Pop the spark plug wires from their plastic holders to free enough slack to be able to pull your sparkplug wires out of the block. For the plug closest to the front of the engine you will need to remove the 10mm bolt holding the ground wires to the intake manifold to be able to free enough space for removing the plug.

For the middle plug you will need to remove the 10mm bolt holding the bracket that is holding one of the throttle cables at the top of the intake manifold. For the rear plug just pop the flexible hose that runs behind the black metal bracket straight up out of its clip and push it out of the way along with any other hoses that run through this area. Pull the spark plug wire from its place by pulling straight up just like with the coils. there will also be about a 6 inch tube running down to the spark plug at the bottom of these plugs.

Remove and replace the plugs same as before. make sure you reconnect all your hoses and wires to their previous locations. Doublecheck to make sure you reconnect all the ground wires/ brackets. Also you will need to use " twin ground electrode plugs" (see sticker on front of your plastic timing belt cover? to the right of the radiator hose).

Hi, I need to replace the 3 rear spark coils and spark plugs. What is the easiest way to do this? Remove the Intake manifold? Aloha, Jim


It's hard but possible to do that without removing intake manifold , if you don't have experience and right tools , probably removing the intake is easiest way.
If you want to try hard way , you need to clear some room for your hands by taking vacuum lines out, that go to throttle body and throttle cable with bracket (two 10mm heads bolt) , on the other side of manifold take out pcv hose (just pull it out from intake manifold and turn it out of your way.don't worry about clamp , it will come out and go back the same way when you push it in)
The worst part of this job without removing intake manifold is disconnecting harness plugs from coils and braking loose spark plugs.(Practice first on front harness connectors.)
Good luck.

Need to change number 4 coil pack on 2002 ford exp 4.6


You'll need to unbolt the fuel injection rail to have enough room to get the coil and boot out. There is 1 8mm bolt holding the coil to the intake manifold. I'd spray some WD-40 where the injectors go in to the intake to help remove the injectors.

Pulling an alternator


Removing the rear-mounted alternator on early 1990s Civics and CRX can be frustrating. After removing the upper adjusting bracket bolt and the lower pivot bolt, the alternator can *almost* come out the top and almost fits behind the intake manifold.

The only easy exit path is out the left wheel well. Side access requires removing the wheel and unfastening three of the plastic retainers holding the upper end of the splash guard. But even this doesn't provide quite enough room. You need to tuck the alternator back under the intake, unbolt the lower alternator bracket (two bolts, 14mm socket) before the alternator can be removed.

The tools needed:

10mm socket -- alternator power connection, battery terminal
12mm wrench -- adjusting bracket
14mm socket -- adjusting bracket, pivot bolt, alternator bracket

How do I change three back spark plugs


There's 2 ways. One is to remove the upper intake which will give you alot more room to work. If your not taking off the upper intake you will need a rachet and swivles some extenions and a spark plug socket.
I would pull the upper intake. I changed my plugs out at 80,000 and I had a hard time cause the plugs where rotting at the hex bolt of the plug I had to beat a metric socket on them to unbolt them. I suggest you replace the coil paks also while your back there. If you take it to the dealer it will cost you greatly $270 to replace each plug plus coil pak.
You can buy the coil paks for $70 each and a set of plugs for $15 from any parts store.
