Check the air filter if that is dirty it will restrict the air flow and cause the engine to run to lean and would result in loss of mpg

SOURCE: My car has 92,000 miles

if there is any recommended parts to use on your car the owners manual will tell you. As for the spark plugs when you buy them they come pre-gapped. 9.9 times out of ten you dont need to change them. if you tell someone at the auto parts store the type of car you have they will supply you with the right wires or if you are ordering them online there should be a place on the website that makes you choose your vehicle before you can order anything. Unless you are driving a rare or vintage vehicle you should be fine with anything you get from the auto parts store. If you want to check the plug gap look for a little white sticker under the hood, it will tell you your motor size and some other information.usually plug gap is at or near the bottom of this sticker.
This all should help you but let me know if you need more help.

P.S. if you have alluminum heads(most do) you will want to change your plugs when the motor is cool. this will help keep the plugs from cross-threading and causing major head damage and repair bills Good luck!!!

How do I replace spark plugs and wires on chevrolet equinox 2011 2.4 liter front wheel drive

First, I think it highly unlikely that a 2011 Chevrolet Equinox would be due for spark plugs yet. They only have to be changed every 100,000 miles.

Second, you could spend the rest of your life trying to change the spark plug wires on that vehicle and never accomplish it. 2011 Chevrolet Equinox is not equipped with spark plug wires.

Then, if the spark plugs were somehow in need of replacement at this time, I highly recommend that you do not try this at home unless you have access to compressed air to clean the debris out of the spark plug tubes. Otherwise, severe engine damage can occur. (I have replaced many cylinder heads because of DIYers attempting to change their own spark plugs without the proper methods and equipment.)

With all that said, you must remove the ignition coils to get to the spark plugs.

I have a leak in the ac high pressure line and my husband wants to replace it himself. how does he remove the line?

Such job I would recommend to have it done by an AC shop, the AC system will have to be recharged after the line is removed and replaced, and pressure has to be released beforehand.
I wouldn't think your car uses Freon gas any more, thats a harmful gas to breathe, even if its R 22, still would recommend it done at the AC shop...
Good luck.

1999 Toyota Solara V6 SLE has an engine misfire, Throws check engine codes, is running lean in bank 1 any ideas?

running lean bank one; suggest a bad 02 sensor on bank one,check engine light on? suppose so, or you would'nt have codes.may be a bad coil pack on bank one. it does'nt run without a backfire right? your best thing to do is this. check engine fire to plugs that supply fire to bank one,it may have a red fire to plugs on bank one side, but you need blue fire to plugs on bank one side.[the best spark to plugs will always be blue] you may only need to replace part of the engine coil pack, they will have numbers on them[coil pack] and which cylinders that they supply spark to. if i'm not mistaken, you will be looking from front of car, look on passenger side of motor for a bad spark plug, or may even be a worn spark plug wire,inspect your spark plug wires for a worn place where the wire is exposed to ground the spark from the spark plug. pull the spark plug out and check it for carbon build up also. for carbon build up, it will be covered with hard black substance. recommend if you do replace plugs, nepindenso, no ac plugs[cheap] no ac delso,cheap. the better the plug, the better the car runs with great mileage. hope this helps,merry christmas, and as always,if you need further assistance,please repost your question and an expert will be happy to assist!

Where are the spark plugs located on the 1999 Intrigue???

Your Intrigue is equipped with the 3800 V-6 motor...The motor is mounted transversely...(sideways:) You can trace the spark plug wires from the spark box to each of the 6 plugs...I recommend you use AC platinum tip plugs, verify the gap...should be 45 mm...spark plug gap tools are inexpensive and available at all parts stores...Use thread lubricant...and plug wire tip lubricant...As your mileage is over 80,000 you should also consider replacing the wires too...:)

The ac thrns off and on by its self

1 Do you have an AUTO setting on your AC to Set Temperature? or 2 Do you notice this on/ off when accelerating quickly? If 1 the AC will turn and off by itself to maintain Temperature Setting. 2 Will cut power to AC when accelerating to lower gas consumption>

BMW 740i Stalling Issue (Fuel Pump/Line??)

To save you all the hassle check your spark plugs & distributor first if you are getting a spark. To do that first take out the number one spark plug wire it will be the one closest to the distributor. Second take out the spark plug, then put the spark plug in the spark plug wire. Turn on the engine u should see a spark at the spark plug if your distributor is ok and spark plug. If not replace your distributor.
