Ok follow the large tension leads on top of the motor depending on engine size there should be six (for 6 cylinder) they group together on the distributor cap and go to the top of the engine under the caps on the end of the leads that go to the engine will be the spark plugs you may need a special spark plug socket as they can be in hole and normal sockets will not reach, hope that helped

Need to know where spark plugs are located in order to change


Follow the spark plug wires down into the engine, a soft tug should pull the wire loose from the plug and then you will need a spark plug socket to change them.
