You shouldn't have to remove the manifold. Get the proper sockets & extensions. A 1" extension is probably the most needed and most overlooked extension around.

How To Change The Spark Plugs On A 2002-2005 Kia Sedona 3.5 Liter


You'll need to remove the oil cap and the 6 bolts holding on the engine cover. The front 3 spark plugs are pretty easy to replace. You'll need to unplug the spark plug wire from the coil and disconnect the electrical connector. Unbolt the 2 10mm bolts holding the coil to the valve cover. Twist the coil and boot back and forth and pull it out of the cylinder head. The spark plug is down in the head, you'll need at least a 6 inch extension with a 5/8" spark plug socket, a telescopic magnet will help get the spark plug out of the head. The back 3 spark plugs involve removing the upper intake and throttle body, unbolt the bracket to the throttle body, and the bracket bolted to the upper intake manifold. on the back side of the engine. Remove the tubing from the throttle body to the air cleaner box. Unbolt anything else bolted to the upper intake. Unplug electrical connectors to the throttle body and any other electrical connectors on the upper intake and remove the upper intake bolts. And move the upper intake out of the way, there are only spark plug wires on the back 3 plugs. Twist and turn each boot to aid in removing the boot from the plug. I would get a new upper intake gasket and consider replacing the wires at this time also. There are actually only 3 spark plug wires, so for what is involved to get to them, I would replace them. I have found alot of the wires will arc to the upper intake manifold.

Changing out spark plugs on a 1994 vw jetta. i can remove the 2 outter plugs but 2 are hidden under the intake manifold. Do i remove the manifold or is there another way?


You have to remove the upper intake manifold. You'll need to unbolt it and disconnect the hoses and connectors and move it enough out of your way. It would also be suggestable to get a new gasket for the upper intake manifold, increase the old on breaks or comes a part, during removal.

Clean both mating surfaces and install the new thermostat with a new gasket, reinstall the radiator hose, fill with anti-freeze and check for leaks.

2001 Cougar getting a P0301 & P0303 error...could this be a leaky intake manifold? Already replaced the plugs & wires. It has 114,000 miles


those codes are for a misfire if you've already replaced the plugs and wires and it still throws the same codes check the coil for those 2 cylinders and make sure it's firing if it is check to make sure the fuel injectors are firing on those 2 cylinders a leaking intake wouldn't cause the misfire codes it would throw like a po171 and or a po174 normally

Where is the pcv valve on a 2001 mercury couagar


4 cylinder or 6?

v-6

The PCV Monitor consists of a modified PCV system design. The PCV valve is installed into the rocker cover using a quater-turn cam-lock design to prevent accidental disconnection. High retention force molded plastic lines are used from the PCV valve to the intake manifold. The diameter of the lines and the intake manifold entry fitting are increased so that inadvertent disconnection of the lines after a vehicle is serviced will cause either an immediate engine stall or will not allow the engine to be restarted.

Changing the plugs and wires ?


no, the plugs and wires are very easy to replace, the back wires may seem difficult, but just reach your hand very slightly behind the UIM and you can feel the top of the plug boot, maybe a 20 minute job for all 6
