First, if you are not confident in your mechanical skills then don't attempt this yourself. It requires a bit more care than usual to reach some of the plugs and a u-joint and extensions for your socket set. Also the threads are short and require you torque them to specs to avoid problems. Removal of the coil paks and the fuel rails is part of the process, it is a bit more detailed than we have space here to show. If you do want to attempt at home then purchase the service manual and follow all the steps in order, they are there for a reason.

I need to locate the number 4 spark plug wire to replace the spark plug can you tell me how to locate this wire on a 05 ford expedition


Your vehicle doesn't have spark plug wires . Has coil on plug ignition system . Eight individual coils sitting right on top of the spark plugs . An the spark plugs have the tendency to break in the cylinder head . Does your ford have the 5.4 L 3 valve engine . Your best bet is to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop that has the tool to take the broken spark plug out off the cylinder head.

I have a 2001 ford escape xlt 4 wheel drive. i had a diagnostic test done & it said it detected a misfire in cylinder 3. i am a do it yourselfer and am going to change all 6 spark plugs but the problem...


I am assuming that you have a V6 Engine because 1, 3 and 5 would be on the other side of 2, 4 and 6. A Striaght in line engine would have them all in a row.

But another way to locate your spark plugs would be to find your Spark plug wires and follow them to the spark plug.

Good Luck

Locate sparks plugs and wires


You won't find any wires...That vehicle is equtpped with Coil On Plug (COP) ignition. The spark plugs are located under the ignition coils. It is not recommended that you try to replace the spark plugs unless you have access to compressed air to blow dirt and debris out of the spark plug holes. I have had to replace many engine valves because of this.

I need to see the image of a 2001 ford taurus motor to locate the spark plugs


with all due respect, if u need an image to locate spark plugs then you really shouldnt be working under the bonnet of ur car. if u snap a spark plug or cross thread it when replacing them, your in for mega money putting it right. however if u insist, remove the plastic cover off the top of ur engine and look for 4 black rubber leads, pull these out and the spark plugs are underneath.

How to change spark plug where are they located at


Your spark plugs can be located in 2 different locations.
1 if your engine is sitting front to back of the vehicle your plugs will be located on the drivers side and the passengers side of the vehicle.
2 if your engine is set from one wheel well to the other than your spark plugs will be located on the front of the engine ( front towards the bumper/grill.) and next to the firewall.

4.6L, 5.4L & 6.8L Engines
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the coil on plugs as outlined under Ignition Coil in this section.

  3. Remove the spark plugs.
  4. Inspect the spark plugs
  5. Adjust the spark plug gap as necessary. Proper gap is 0.52–0.56 in. (1.32–1.42mm).

  1. Install the spark plugs and tighten them to 13 ft. lbs. (18 Nm) for 4.6L and 5.4L SOHC engines. For 5.4L DOHC and 6.8L engines, tighten the spark plugs to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).

2001 ford expedition spark plug location


That's because they are hidden quite well. If you look at the engine, you'll see yellow plastic prongs (?) that look like spark plugs, but hook up to the silver tubing.  That's the fuel injectors.  BUT, right behind the yellow plugs, are black ones.  The black one is the connector to the spark plug.  The plug itself sits about 4 inches down into the block of the engine.  They are a real pain, and from what I can tell, you only have decent access to the first 2-4 of them, then they get too far back and start going under the dash (you'll see what I mean when you get there).
