SOURCE: Toyota 4 runner spark plugs

Not a big deal. Realize that the plugs from the factory are Iridium and are good for 100K miles. Assemble the following:

6 Denso IKH20 Iridium Plugs pre-set to .044 gap ($10 each) High Temperature anti-seize (crayon type is $3 at NAPA)
3/8 inch drive ratchet
5/8 inch spark plug socket
4-inch extension
10-inch extension
10 mm socket
12 mm socket
torque wrench (or make real sure you don't over tighten the plugs) new air filter (optional)

Start on the passenger side. Disconnect the air induction/filter assembly by un-snapping the two spring latches on the black air intake box closest to the front of the car. Once these are un-latched, fold the air intake assembly out of the way. Now would also be a good time to replace the air filter if you have not done so lately. With the air intake assembly out of the way, you now have clear access to the top of the valve cover. Along either side on top of the valve cover you will notice three black modules each held in place with one 10mm bolt with a small wiring harness connector attached. These are the coils (one per plug), and the spark plugs are located underneath. Disconnect the wiring harness connector and remove the 10mm bolt. Pull straight up on the coil and it should disconnect from the spark plug. Look down the hole and you can see the top of the spark plug 5 inches down. Using a 5/8 inch spark plug socket with a rubber 'holder' inside the socket to hold the plug, remove each plug. I had to use a 10-inch ratchet extension to provide sufficient clearance. I know it sounds goofy using a standard size socket on a metric car, but it is what it is. I make sure I get each coil back to its original location, but it really does not matter as they are all the same. Since the heads are aluminum and the spark plugs are stainless steel or monel/nickel, you have to be careful not to ruin the threads on the heads. I ONLY remove the plugs when the engine is cold. Apply some high temperature anti-seize only to the threads on the new plugs and install to 18ft-lbs of torque. Slip the coil back in place, attach the connector, install and tighten the bolt and you are done with that plug. Repeat for each plug. Re-install the air intake assembly and snap down the two latches and you are through with that side.

The driver's side is more difficult as there are things in the way. I had to remove one bracket (held in place with 2 12mm bolts) and disconnect a rubber hose underneath that bracket (it just slipped off with little effort - no tools required) in order to provide sufficient room to remove the coils. This is not as bad as it sounds, and I had both removed in under 2 minutes. Now you have access to the coils and plugs and can repeat the process. Go slow, take your time, don't get anti-seize on the plug firing tip, use a torque wrench if you have access to one. Replace the hose and the bracket and you are done.

Total time is 1 hour if you are not mechanically inclined, 30 minutes if you are.

SOURCE: how do you reach to last four spark plugs on a 2004 dodge ram 5.7

Having the proper length socket is a must. I assume you are talking about the # 5 and 7 cylinders. We just changed ours today. You have to attack them from the front of the vehicle. We used a elevated dolly but you can improvise with a high stool, ect. Your right hand goes under the brake booster and your left hand goes over it. Most of the work is by feeling for the screws and plugs. The biggest tool you will need is patience. Hope it helped somewhat. JW Stevens

It may be the starter motor contacts which are worn. I have done this twice (on 2 different estima's myself. The starter will not turn or not properly. New contacts for these Denso starters are available on ebay from nipponnev for about £10 delivered and take about 1 hour to fit. No need to buy another starter. Hope this helps. Regards, Paul

the spark plugs are located under the coil packs they have one or two bolts holding each one in. you have six cylinder so there should be six coil packs three facing you when you pop hood and three more located towards the back. let me know if you have any other questions.

Toyota estima engine knocking sound


Hi there,

Sounds like the engine timing is out - possibly due to incorrect spark plug gaps? If the plug gaps are correct, then there may be an issue with your Knock sensor.

In either case, your vehicle's on-board computer will have stored the appropriate fault codes, so have your codes read by your local Toyota dealership (this takes about 10mins to read your codes).

Once the codes are extracted, this will identify the culprit circuit.

Hope this helps..

HOw to get into engine to change spug pluggs and leads for Toyota estima 1993


The best thing to do is to purchase a Haynes manual for the Toyota Previa. But to access the spark plug wires and spark plugs you will need to remove the passenger front seat. This requires taking out four bolts on the four corners of the seat. After the seat is removed you need to remove the outside seat support and the jack and jack handle that is located under the seat. Next remove the bolt from the seat belt/shoulder harness. Romove the screws from the side of the carpet keeper strip along the bottom of the door. carefully, using a flat blade screwdriver, pry the plastic carpet strip up carefully disengaging it from the rear strip. Unhook the carpet from the edge of the doorway. Pull the carpet back enough to expose the bolts holding the cover over the engine. Remove all the bolts holding the cover over the engine. This will expose the engine head. remove the three bots holding the black plastic cover over the spark plug wires. This wires can be removed allowing access to the plugs. Be aware these engines use only platinum tipped spark plugs. Good Luck
