You must have the Hemi. There is really not an easier way than to unbolt it and slide it out as best as you can. They are a huge pain in the ****. Wouldn't be so bad if you didn't have to do the plugs every 30K.

How many spark plugs are on the mercury milan 2007. I only found 3.


For 2007 Mercury Milan 3.0L SFI DOHC 6cyl the upper intake manifold must be removed to access the RH spark plugs only.
  1. Remove the upper intake manifold, if removing the RH spark plugs. Refer to the Intake Manifold procedure in the Engine Mechanical Section
  2. Disconnect the 6 ignition coil-on-plug electrical connectors.
    NOTE When removing the ignition coil-on-plugs, a slight twisting motion will break the seal and ease removal.
  3. Remove the 6 bolts and the 6 ignition coil-on-plugs.
    WARNING Only use hand tools when removing or installing the spark plugs, or damage can occur to the cylinder head or spark plug.
    NOTE Use compressed air to remove any foreign material in the spark plug well before removing the spark plugs.
  4. Remove the 6 spark plugs.

To install:
  1. Inspect the spark plugs, as outlined in this section.
  2. Inspect the 6 spark plugs.
  3. Adjust the spark plug gap, as necessary, to 1.32-1.42mm (0.052-0.056 in.).
    WARNING Only use hand tools when removing or installing the spark plugs, or damage can occur to the cylinder head or spark plug.
  4. Install the 6 spark plugs. Tighten to 15 Nm (11 lb-ft).
    NOTE Apply a small amount of dielectric grease to the inside of the ignition coil-on-plug boots before attaching to the spark plugs.
  5. Install the 6 ignition coil-on-plugs and the 6 bolts. Tighten to 7 Nm (62 lb-in).

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.

I need to know how to change the back three spark plugs on my 2008 ford edge , do i remove the manifold.to get to them, is it safe


Yes, you will have to remove the intake manifold. If you are mechanically inclined, it's not that hard. Looks complicated because of all the wires and hoses. Just take your time, keep track of everything you do, take notes if you have to, so everything goes back together the same way it came apart. Since you are going to all this trouble be sure you buy a premium spark plug. I wouldn't use Champion or Ford products. NGK Iridium would be my choice if they are available.

I have a 2004 BMW 545i. I'm currently working to remove all of the 8 spark plugs to check their condition. I'm unable to remove the ignition coils up and out of the spark plug holes on the two far rear...


sorry, don't know that one, but google BMW 545i coil removal and see what you get. Also, be careful getting the plugs out as some are often corroded in place due to aluminum/steel chemical reaction. Sometimes it takes an impact wrench to jar them back and forth a little at a time to get them out. Use high temp anti sieze on the new plug threads if you want to get them out again later. good luck.

There is a misfire in my engine, changed plugs & wires. now it reads that the fuel leveling sensor is bad, will this help?


If there is a misfire, the cylinder that it is misfiring in will be recorded as a code in the computer.

Have the car scanned to determine which cylinder is bad. Then, replace the coil pack going to that cylinder.

How do you remove the ignition coil


Each ignition control module (ICM) has the following circuits:
An ignition 1 voltage circuit A chassis ground An ignition control circuit for each cylinder A low reference circuit
The PCM controls spark by pulsing the ignition control circuits to the ICM to trigger the coils and fire the spark plugs. The PCM and ICM are internally protected against shorts to power and ground on the ignition control circuits.

The spark plugs are connected to each coil by a short boot. The boot contains a spring that conducts the spark energy from the coil to the spark plug. The spark plugs are tipped with platinum for long wear and higher efficiency.
