How do I change the spark plugs for a 2001 xj8 where are they located


They are located under the black plastic covers on the top of the engine. Remove those and you will see the ignition coils. Take those out and the spark plugs are beneath them. There are no spark plug wires.

How do you change spark plugs on a toyota yaris 2001


First you must remove the plastic cover from on top of the engine to access the ignition coils. The next step is to remove the ignition coils. To do this you must carefully disconnect the plug by holding down the plastic tab while pulling the plug off the coil. Then you must remove the small bolts holding the coils to the valve cover. Pull the coils straight out. To remove the spark plugs you will need a torque wrench, long extension and a self holding spark plug socket. All these can be bought at your local auto parts store. The spark plugs are removed by unscrewing them from the cylinder head and pulling them straight out. Installation is the reverse of removal. The spark plugs are tightened to 25 foot pounds of torque and the small bolts for the ignition coils are tightened to 10 foot pounds of torque.

How do change spark plugs on a 1998 xj8


Remove plastic cover over the engine ( three screws).
You then have access to the front three spark plugs (cylinders 1,3,5) remove the nut which holds down the independant coils and remove the spark plugs, fit new spark plugs and fit coils on the three front cylinders.
Now it gets a little tricky, you will only be able to access number 2 back cylinder so you have to remove the induction manifold (12 bolts I think) to access the back three cylinders (2,3,6,) properly.
Then proceed as with the front three spark plugs, refit manifold and plastic cover,

Cant find the spark plug location on 2002 4cyl tacoma


Locate the spark plug cover on the engine.On some Toyota Tacoma engines, the cover is across the top of the engine. On others, it is along the side 4 cyl. Remove the cover to reveal the ignition coils and spark plugs wires. The spark plug wires are plugged directly into the engine and the ignition coils are in the tip of the spark plug wire.
Remove the coil and wire from the spark plug. Twist and pull the plug out of the engine. Remove the spark plug from the cylinder well with a socket extender and socket wrench. Turn the wrench to the left to unscrew the spark plug from the engine.

Discard the old spark plug and apply a coat of anti-seize compound to the threads of the new spark plug.

Insert the new spark plug into the socket. Use the socket and extension to screw the spark plug into place.

Return the ignition coils and spark plug wires to the engine and turn it to lock the plug in place. Repeat the entire the process with the remaining spark plugs.

Replace the spark plug cover when all of the spark plugs are replaced.

Good luck and hope this helps and The spark plug tension may range between 11 and 15 foot pounds, depending on the size of the spark plug. The correct tension is indicated on the spark plug's packaging.

Is it difficult to replace spark plugs in a Jaguar XJ8


Your car does not have plug leads so that will save you a job,the spark plugs are fairly easy to do tho.
Open the bonnet,either side of the engine at the top there are 2 black covers bolted to the top of your engine,bolted to those are 2 smaller covers,remove the 2 smaller covers which will reveal your ignition coils,remove the ciols and your spark plugs are there.
You will have to remove the air filter assembly tho on the right hand side which is easy enough,remove the bolts from pipe at the rear middle of engine,undo the clips which houses the filter and disconnect the engine breather pipe.Re assemble in reverse order,
N.B the spark plugs dont want tightening too tight..or too loose,when the plug nips up just give it a little nip again..GOOD LUCK
