However you can get there is the best way.(depending on the tools you have) be careful not to put side pressure on the plug socket or you can snap the plug off. ALWAYS use anti-seize compound on new plug threads when re-installing.
If the plugs you are removing do not unscrew easily, stop when they start to bind, spray solvent there, then screw back in , back out again, spray and repeat as many times as necessary till removed, otherwise you can take the threads right out of the head (you won't like that)

I would replace the switches but there is a relay under the hood for both heater motors . that is an easier fix there plug and play . Lol they should be under the hood on drivers side fender well. if you still have the problem change out the swithes becareful the surrounding area us plastic look for screws . get a repair manual.

How do I get the spark plugs out of my 1998 ford escort to replace with new ones? Also where does the pcp Valve go?


With you hood open and you are standing in front of the car sparkplug wires need to be removed,i suggest you remove them one at a time, under each wire the sparkplug is threaded into the cylinder head,using a 5/8 sparkplug socket remove the sparkplug and replace it with new properly gapped sparkplug.Note:if you remove all sparkplug wires at once the factory wires are generally numbered 1 2 3 4 the sparkplug closesed to the passenger fender is #1 and the one clossesed to the driver's fender is #4.Standing in front of vehicle the PCV Valve is located between #3 and #4 on the backside(intake side) of the engine fitted down into a rubber hose

Do you change sparkplugs from inside under the engine cover?


My last work on one of these was an older model with the V-6 engine so my answer may or may not apply to your model/engine.

In that particular case, I found that the rear most plugs were easier to reach from inside with the engine cover out of the way. The forward plugs on each side were accessed from under the hood. Multiple extensions and swivels were needed to reach around everything to remove and install the plugs. Getting the plug boots off was the toughest part of the job. Good luck and let me know if this helps you out or not.

91 sunbird le 2.0 sparkplug gap under hood


I would go with the one under the hood because the owners manual is generic for all models for that year while the one under the hood is for your model.

Ford Escape goes dead


You started the right way.
It sounds like it needs a tune-up.
Change the sparkplugs - Use Autolite Platinum ($3.87 for two at WalMart; $6 each at AutoZone)

Also, check for faulty sparkplug cables as follows:
1. When it is getting dark outside, set the parking/emergency brake.
2. Open the hood.
3. Start the car and look under hood for "sparks" from the sparkplug cables to the engine (or other metal part).
4. DON'T TOUCH anything under the hood! The cables can shock you (bad!) or the fan can cut you or the Boogeyman may reach out ... (sorry)...
5. Turn off car .. that ends the cable spark test.
6. Replace ALL sparkplug cables if any create a light show under the hood.

Hope this helps!

Changing spark plugs


look under hood..you will see wires coming from distributor cap on top into your motor..if its an 8 cylinder there will be 4 in the back and 4 in the front.6 cylinder-3 in front 3 in back.get a 5/16 spark plug wrench and socket.you will need extension to reach back ones.if you bought new wires from parts store it will be even easier to find where plugs are located because you can compare the ones you bought and easier find the wires under the hood.the wire gets fatter as it goes into the motor.grab the fat part firmly and pull it off.boom theres your spark plugs.use your spark plug socket(5/16) with extension/ratchet and turn the plug until it comes out.do not break the plug or it will not come out.when you put a new one in screw it hand tight then 1 crank tight with the ratchet.when you change your wires do them one at a time as to avoid switching the wires up.on top of the distributor cap(where the wires lead to) there will be numbers as to what wire is for what cylinder...change plugs/wires 1 at a time dont take off more than 1 wire at a time!hope this helped!

Change spark plugs on hyundai coupe v6 2.7 2002


To change the sparkplugs you have to actually remove the black and silver shield, then take the headers off. There are bolts hidden under the middle silver pieces, they pop right out. There is also a bolt under the Hyundai H logo on the cover.
