SOURCE: I can't get spark plug wires off of spark plug.

first off the vibes come with iridium spark plugs so there is no reason you should be taking them out unless you have more that 200,000 miles on it. and they also dont have a spark plug wire its a coil pack with a rubber shaft that reaches the top of the plug. and dont take them out unless your replacing them because they will more that likley break.

SOURCE: all 4 o2 sensors read bad

daves944 knows what he is talking about, u need to find the root cause of this problem, which is a problem any of th following can cause this, MAF, Intake leaks, engine conditions like low compression and many other things, the O2 codes are a Symptom not the problem, you may also have a wiring harness problem, check the harness connectors to the O2 sensors, look for exhaust heat related wiring damage, look for corrosion in connectors.

Need engine diagram to replace spark plugs

The engines use what is called COP type ignition, or Coil On Plug. That means it does not have a distributor and plug wires like you are probably used to... each cylinder has its own ignition coil. If you can look at the injectors, you will see something about 1.5 inches around with a small bolt holding it in place, and a small wiring harness attached to it. These are the coils. The bolt has a 7 or 8 mm head on it. Remove the bolt and wire plug, and the coil will pull up and off of the spark plug. Depending on which cylinder you look at, it will be difficult to actually see the spark plug, but trust me it is down there about 4 inches deep into the head. They have a 5/8 head, and you will need about 1 3 inch extension for your ratchet to remove the plug. Be sure that your spark plug socket has the little rubber insert in there to. If you are going to replace them, a little tip for you.... lube the ceramic boot of the plug with dilectric grease before you insert it into the spark plug socket. This will keep the rubber piece from stickin to the plug after you install it. Also DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE PLUG !!!!! You will mess up your head and the repair is VERY expensive to fix. You can actually rip the threads right out of the head if you over tighten them. It is a bit of a pain to get all of them, but not too bad. I would plan a good 3 or 4 hours the first time you do it. On the passenger side, the back two are tough, but if you take off the brackets where the battery wires connect to (4 - 8mm bolts) and slide the two harneses off of the brackets, you can do it. Just push the heater hoses out of the way.

Replace spark plugs in 1997 4 cyl. ford ranger

Hello, I will suggest you get these few tools before you with the replacement.
(1) Spark plug socket with rubber insert to hold plugs in place while inserting & removing.(2) 6inch extensions for your 3/8ths inch socket wrench,(1) Swivle Socket extension for your 3/8ths inch socket wrench.(1) 1/2inch socket for exhaust manifold screws. A little quantity of anti-sieze for the spark pluggs to be applied to the pluggs if they are proving difficult to get out.
Start with the 1st cylinder at the front of the engine on the passanger side.
Twist & remove the spark plug boot from the existing plug.
You have to use a very small flat edged screwdriver to open the clips that hold the plug wires together.
Use a 6" extension & a 3" extension & your deep socket for the spark plug.
Remove the first plug and replace the old plug with a new Bosch Platinum Plus 2 prong plug and use some anti-seize on the threads and tighten to the appropriate torque.
Remove the old plug wire from the coil pack. It will be going to the 2nd coil pack (located to the rear of the first coil pack) and install the new plug wire in the coil pack.
Repeat steps 1-7 for plugs on 2 & 3.
To remove Plug #4 which is the last plug on the passanger side,you have to remove the two (2) 1/2inch bolts that holds a bracket to the exhaust manifold. Make sure you spray the studs these bolts are on with some DW-40 or liquid wrench. The exhaust manifold studs might have a lot of rust & being difficult to turn nuts off without shearing off the stud. It has some sort of aluminum box ontop of this bracket with some sensor wires coming out of it, Slip the bracket off and simply lay it to the rear of the engine to provide better access to this last cylinder.

Repeat steps 1-7 for plug #4 and then Remount bracket containing the aluminum box with sensor wires.

Upon completion of the passenger side,you now have to proceed to the driver side.
STEP 1. The first cylinder at the front of the engine the spark plug wire has a grey handle sticking up next to the A/C compressor. Using some pliers (needle nose plier) twist & pull this grey handle. The spark plug boot should pop out.

With the help of the small flat edged screw driver, unhook the spark plug wire clips that hold the wires together. There are 3 - One just after the 1st coil pack located at the front of the engine, another just on the other side of the valve cover and a small 2 clip located about 1/2 way back on the valve cover under the intake manifold.
Remove the spark plug wire from Cylinder #1 on the Drivers side
STEP 4.With the help of the small flat edged screw driver,press the 4 connection points on the grey handle that is attached to the wire,it will separate down the middle and allow you to remove the wire, Replace the wire with the new wire,you have to ensure you line up the rubber round plugs with the round holes in this grey handle & snap it back together with the new wire in place.

Hold the spark plug socket in your left hand down near the plug,feed a 6" inch extension below the A/C Compressor line (black pipe) and the A/C Compressor with your right hand and attach the spark plug socket into the extension.
STEP 6.Slip the socket onto the plug,afterwards,attach an additional 3 or 6 inch extension to the existing extension & attach your socket wrench.
STEP 7.Remove the plug & proceed to replace it with a Bosch Platinum plug & anti-seize on the threads. Feed the new Spark Plug wire over to the 1st coil pack & replace it on the coil pack.

I nee instructions on a cam sensor removal for a 1998 ford contor with a 16 vale 2.o over head cam engine

The camshaft sensor is located at the back of the head on driver side. Remove the wire,unscrew the sensor,screw the new sensor in the head and put the wire back on the sensor

The camshaft sensor is not in the back on the 98 4 cyl its right in front. All you need to do is take off the 3 bolts on the top of the heat shield and pull it back a bit and it will be right there.

1993 ford econoline 150 has misfire and black

there are two or three things that can cause black smoke on a six cylinder van.a bad fuel pressure regulator is is located on the fuel rail. it is silver and has red vacuum line attached to it. remove the hose and see if fuel comes out of the regulator, if so replace the regulator. next a bad map sensor can cause black smoke. it is located under the hood.bolted to the firewall. its a black square plastic object with a wire connector attached to it, also it may have a vacuum hose attached to it. if it has a hose see if the hose is broken. otherwise just unplug the map sensor see if it changes the idle. if it does than chances are the sensor is good. you could have a bad injector also. disconnect spark plug wires one at a time. if one of them does not change than that injector maybe bad. thats all i can help with. good luck.

How to put on

Don't bother replacing the sensor. 
There is a voluntary recall for the 2003 Nissan Altima that was issued on 8/26/06. This recall is to address the issue of the crankshaft position sensor placement in the engine. The location of the sensor allows the sensor to overheat interupting the signal to the ECM. 
The interruption causes the car to stall instantlyand the check engin light will come on. The code returned for the check engine light will read for the crankshaft position sensor. Even if you change the sensor the new one will be affected by the temperature after a short while causing the same problem. 
The recall will reprogram your ECM to ignore the input for the sensors (there are two on the crankshaft) and should take the dealer approximately 30 minutes to do depending on their schedule. 
Expect engine efficency to drop after reprograming, after reprograming my gas milage decreased by 4 MPG. Please note that Nissan does not consider this problem to be hazardous so you must voluntarily contact the dealer to have the service performed. 
Good luck and hope this helps. If your going to try to change it. 

Remove the (4) allen head bolts that hold the plastic engine cover remove the bellows fron the throttle chamber to air filter pull off the valve cover breather tube with the bellows. reach over to the brake booster vacuum hose and turn the spring hose clamp about 45 degrees counter clockwise. 
This will keep the clamp from cutting your elbow during the sensor removal process. Now place a drop light under the two rubber brake hoses shining foward. Between the valve cover and the throttle chamber look straight down toward the ground see a plug and black sensor held to the engine block with a goldcolored 10mm hex headed bolt?
 That is ths ****** that has leaked oil into the plug and has caused the P0335 code. Getting it unplugged and removed is the hard step. It takes gorrillia fingers to push in the green release then pull on the wires to remove the plug. 
Next is 2 /2" 1/4" drive extensions and a 10mm socket and ratchet handle. take the bolt out use a pr. of 6" regular slip jaw pliers and twist and pull the 1 1/2 inch long crank sensro rearward. 
The replacement will be made of metal and 180 degrees backward after washing the plug out with spray brake cleaner blow out with compressed air to get rid of the oil. plug the metal sensor to the wire watch the green thing pop back and place the sensor back into its hole. bolt it in place good luck. 
Customer pay retail price is around 170 dollars at the Nissan Dealer.
