They usually screw in. If not go to an auto parts store and get a new set. Make sure you replace one at a time, don't pull them all off and then wonder where they go!

Cranks but wont start. Ran ok when I left the house then died. Used and HEI spark tester. Checked cylinder, no spark. Tested cylinder 3, spark and it started. Turned engine off, put the plug wire back on...

Check the fuel pump relay. As you are cranking the engine, you should hear a whinny sound of fuel being pumped into the injectors. Interval would be about 5 seconds. If you don't hear this sound, relay is shot. You can try swapping the relay of the same number with another function to try to start normally.

P0300 code changed spark plugs p0302

Cylinder 2 is misfiring. Spark plug could be faulty or spark plug wire could have broke internally if you didn't replace them at the same time. Swap cylinder 1 and 2s spark plugs clear code and drive again. If Same code comes back plug is good look at wire if code p0301 come up the spark plug is no good

How do Ichange the spark plugs and spark plug wires, and fuel filter

You'll need a Spark Plug Socket, a 12" extension and socket handle to rach teh plugs to remove them and install the new ones. I prefer to gap mine at .32 but I believe the book calls for .34. As far as plug wires are concerned there are only 4 and on the coil pack they are numbered 1,2,3,4 with 1 and 3 on Top and 2 and 3 under the others respectively. The plug wires come 2 long wires and 2 short wires in a box and can be replaced pretty simple. Simply unplug the old wire and replace it with a new one. While there is no adjustment for you the make to adjust the Timing you should check the timing using the mark in the window of the bell housing where the transmission connects to the motor. If the timing is off and your engine is running rough you may consider changing the timing belt. I made the mistake of waiting too long to change mine and it broke while the engine was running. While changing the belt is not difficult and you can pretty much leave the motor mounted for the repair, repairing the valve and Head was an expensive pain. It cost more to rebuild the head than it did to rebuild the motor. Also, the O2 sensor will cause the motor the run poorly when it is bad as well and should be replaced. The sensor for that vehicle cost about $40 and the socket is $5, a good investment.

My mountaineer shakes like a motor mount is broke. there isn't a mount broken

check all spark plug lines ... that shaking could be one plug not firing causing a out of rythem engine vibrations
if they are all connected then try disconnecting plug wire hold plug wire near metal near plug end to see if its also firing YOU need to hold plug wire back a little from the end or it will arch to your hand not pleasent shock ...

are the plug wires routed to the same plug position that they were before you put plug in it and did you by chance install new plug wires because you may have possibly fractured or broke the thin wire or spark plug connection spring inside the plug wire boot. please let me know

How to change the spark plugs in a 2006 Volkswagon Jetta

The solution is:

Engine cover removal: Fairly simple, I will try to explain this best I can without pictures. To start, you will want to remove the connecting air intake hoses (BIG tube looking thing on bottom right of the top of the engine) it is clamped down, just take some pliers and unclamp it to remove hose. Then the hose right next to that one (adjacent to the front bumber) You will need an star screw driver, if you look at the two screw's heads on either side of it you will know what i'm talking about. Then that comes off. Then there is a wire attached to the air intake hose, you must unconnect it, (I explained already how to take wires off in the spark plug section below, they are all the same) Next all you have to do is pull up on one side of the engine cover. (if you look at the back left of the cover you see what looks like a rubber gromet, kinda of look like you need to take that bolt off just to get anywhere.. you don't, that rubber peice acts as a snap on button say on your shirt perhaps) You pull hard enough it will come up, and there is four of those rubber gromet fasteners so just keep wiggling it and pulling until you get it off.

Spark Plug removal:

The spark plugs are located on the very top in plain sight of the engine, easy easy to get to.. you will see (not the actual spark plug just sitting there staring at you, they are under the caps) There are five caps all facing the same way and they have wire connections hooking to all of them. First you have to unconnect the wire to the cap. Take a skinny flat head screw driver.. and stick it in the middle of the wire housing (don't get confused, the housing is just the plastic piece that is black, it "houses" all the wires that power the spark plugs) The middle of the wire housing you will see a little perfect sqaure opening, there is a little clamp thing in there and with the screw driver all you do is put pressure upward (toward the back of your car) and pull at the same time and the housing will disconnect from the spark plug cap. Do this to all five caps.

Next the cap itself, is really easy to take out, just use that same flat head screw driver to kind of pry underneath the cap, don't be afraid to put pressure you won't break anything, Then the cap will come off and underneath the cap (attached to it) is the spark plug covers (acts like.. a battery in the remote) long metal tubular looking things.. if you see that, your doing good. Now look down into the whole you just removed the spark plug cover from, you will see the top of the spark plug down in there. Do this for all five caps.

Now you need tools, a medium size wratchet would do good. make sure you have a loong extension, and a deep well (long) socket (size in MM is 15 in standard 9/16 or one higher) loosen (lefty loosey, righty tighty) the spark plug until you can pull it out with the wratchet.. discard old, put in new spark plug, tighten but not tight tight.. do that for all five spark plugs.. once new spark plug is in, put the spark plug cover and cap combo back into the whole ( MAKE SURE YOU CLEAN IT AND THE WHOLE OUT BEFORE HAND) then just apply little pressure and the cap will set back into place (just make sure it is facing the way it was before) then connect the wiring back to the end of the cap (just slide it on and push it will "click" into place) do that for all .. then put your engine cover back on, reconnect the hoses and the wire on top of the hose. You are then good to go.
