Remove the spark plug leads to the plugs taking note of where they came from, blow air around the plug to remove any dirt etc that might be around the spark plug hole, if this is not done dirt may enter into the cylinder and cause damage in the future.
Remove the plug and disguard, take new plug and check the gap at the end of the plug to specifications adjust if needed.
insert the plug back into the spark plug hole and tighten to specs, connect the spark plug lead to complete the job

SOURCE: changing spark plugs

hi there the reason you don't see the plugs is that they will be under a coil pack or separate coils go are the days of plugs at the end of the plug lead there could be covers over them be logical the plugs will be in the head normally between the camshafts if it twin cam.
hope this helps you Regards JR

SOURCE: spark plugs change

i would replace the air filter and clean the maf sensor with maf sensor cleaner. a 2006 should not have problems with the plugs unless it is very high mileage.

To much gas going thru the exhaust. probably the #2 miss fire. Before you change plugs, make sure you have fire to cylinder #2. You could have a bad coil or ignition module. Also check the condition of the plug wire. You can change these if you like , but it may not be necessary.

2007 nissan titan turns over but wont start no spark to the plugs .


The problem could be in the spark plugs. Usually if just one of the spark plugs is not producing the spark needed, the engine would still start. It may run rough, but will still start. If none of the spark plugs are producing a spark (or firing) then this could be the culprit.The spark plugs gets power to spark from coil packs.So check the coil pack first.If the coil pack checked ok then its faulty spark plugs causing this problem.Also remove the spark plug connection and clean it and reconnect it and recheck.In some cases this helps. ---------------That's it.

Spark plugs change


remove the spark plug lead from the plug, blow out any dirt etc from around the plug, undo the plug and remove from the vehicle, make sure the plug has the right gap setting before installing into the engine.
Check each plug that you remove for any sign of a wet or oily plug which are signs of more serious problems.
If all the plugs are dry with just a light brown carbon deposit on them they are firing ok.
Hope this helps

I got a 1.4 zetec fiesta and its miss firing and no power i was told it could be my valves but its not smoking or anything please help


If you have a mis-fire in your pistons, you need to change your spark plugs. And you might as well change your spark plug wires. Spark plugs can run you about... anywhere from $2 - $90. Take a trip to Advanced Auto Parts. You can get spark plugs for about $7 dollars a piece. With a 1.4 L engine you only have 4 pistons. Spark plug wires will run you a little bit more. Not sure. They are different for every car so im not sure
