The easiest option is to unplug one wire and change that plug, then put the new wire on, repeat for all plugs and wires.

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.

Inspection

Inspect for the correct routing of the spark plug wires. Improper routing may cause cross-firing. Inspect each wire for any signs of cranks or splits in the wire. Inspect each plug wire boot for tearing, piercing, arcing, carbon tracking or a corroded terminal.
If there is any corrosion, carbon tracking or arcing indicated on a plug wire boot or terminal, both the plug wire and component it was connected to should be replaced.

Easiest access to replace #1,3 ,5 spark plugs on 3.4 lit v-6?


There really is not easy access. You will have to climb on the car motor and follow the wires down to the plugs. Use a 3/8" socket with a spark plug boot and swivel. It will make things easier.

Just remove an ignition coil that you know is good, with a good spark plug and hook up to the wire were the bad one was. Have someone start your truck up for you and if the spark plug fires then the ignition coil that you took off was bad. But before you do that just try a new spark plug that may be the problem.

How do i plug in the spark plug coils? what order?


If it's the four cyl., the first coil pack bolts over the #2 spark plug. The #2 coil pack wire plugs into #3 spark plug. The number two coil pack bolts directly over the number four spark plug, and the #2 coil pack wire plugs into the #4 plug. The firing order is 1-4-2-3.

2000 chrysler concorde no spark on #2 cylinder


If it ran good prior to spark plug replacement, then yes, I'd be looking real close at the plug wire to that particular spark plug. Perhaps it pulled apart inside boot upon removal. It may even be an indication that they are all getting weak, and time to think about a new set if it's originals.
