The easiest way is to put the new ones on as you take off the old ones. Make sure you do them ONE AT A TIME.

Get the Haynes or Chilton book for your auto. It will tell you how to connect the wires from which plugs to which post on the distributor cap. If you connect them wrong, your car won't work well, if at all.

    Spark plugs


    Check this SPARK PLUG REPLACEMENT - REMOVAL PROCEDURE

    1_23_2012_5_10_32_pm.jpg

    1. Remove the ignition coils (lines at end this document), then return here once you have gotten the Coil
    Packs off and precede with step 2 from here.
    2. Clean the spark plug recesses with low pressure air. CAUTION: Wear safety glasses
    when using compressed air, as flying dirt particles may cause eye injury. NOTE:
    Clean the spark plug recess area before removing the spark plug. Failure to do so could
    result in engine damage because of dirt or foreign material entering the cylinder head, or
    by the contamination of the cylinder head threads. The contaminated threads may prevent
    the proper seating of the new plug. Use a thread chaser to clean the threads of any
    contamination.
    3. Remove the spark plugs from the cylinder head. NOTE: Allow the engine to cool before
    removing the spark plugs. Attempting to remove the spark plugs from a hot engine may
    cause the plug threads to seize, causing damage to cylinder head threads.
    4. Inspect the spark plugs.

    INSTALLATION PROCEDURE

    1_23_2012_5_11_30_pm.jpg

    1. Measure the spark plug gap on the spark plugs to be installed. Compare the measurement
    to the gap specifications. NOTE:
    • Use only the spark plugs specified for use in the vehicle. Do not install spark
    plugs that are either hotter or colder than those specified for the vehicle. Installing
    spark plugs of another type can severely damage the engine.
    • Check the gap of all new and reconditioned spark plugs before installation. The
    pre-set gaps may have changed during handling. Use a round feeler gage to ensure
    an accurate check. Installing the spark plugs with the wrong gap can cause poor
    engine performance and may even damage the engine.
    2. Install the spark plugs to the cylinder head. NOTE:
    • Be sure that the spark plug threads smoothly into the cylinder head and the spark
    plug is fully seated. Use a thread chaser, if necessary, to clean threads in the
    cylinder head. Cross-threading or failing to fully seat the spark plug can cause
    overheating of the plug, exhaust blow-by, or thread damage.
    • Refer to Component Fastener Tightening Notice in Service Precautions.
    Tighten the spark plugs to 18 N.m (13 lb ft).
    3. Install the ignition coils.

    IGNITION COIL(S) REPLACEMENT

    7. Disconnect the engine wiring harness electrical connector from the intake camshaft position (CMP) sensor.
    8. Carefully disengage the engine wiring harness conduit from the camshaft cover, and position aside.
    9. Remove the ignition coil bolts.
    10. Remove the ignition coils from the camshaft cover.

    INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
    1. Install the ignition coils into the camshaft cover. IMPORTANT: Ensure the ignition coil seals are properly seated to the camshaft cover.

    There is a misfire in my engine, changed plugs & wires. now it reads that the fuel leveling sensor is bad, will this help?


    If there is a misfire, the cylinder that it is misfiring in will be recorded as a code in the computer.

    Have the car scanned to determine which cylinder is bad. Then, replace the coil pack going to that cylinder.

    Ignition Coil Pack Removal & Installation 2V Engine To Remove:
    1. Twist the spark plug wires off of the ignition coil towers. Mark the spark plug wire positions so they can be installed in their original positions.
    2. Disconnect the electrical connector from the ignition coil. CAUTION
      When removing the spark plug wires, a slight twisting motion will break the seal and ease removal.

    My truck is a 1996 1/2ton there is gas getting to the engine and there is spark in the spark plugs we fixed the distributor cap and checked all the spark plug wires, the truck will turn over but it will...


    Hmm, This sounds like a timing problem.

    Best way to do this easily is that:

    Take out the #1 spark plug crank/tap motor over until air comes out of spark plug hole--compression stroke(this is "TDC"---Top Dead Center)

    Remove Distrubutor cap and check and see if rotor points to #1 spark plug wire on cap----if not move the #1 spark plug wire to that position on cap---then install rest of spark plug wires according to the firing order from the #1 plug wire.

    Install #1 spark plug and start truck---you may have to rotate distributor a little bit to get best performance.

    Change spark plug wires on 04 kia sedona


    REMOVAL OF THE PLUGS:

    Do not attempt any maintenance on spark plug if engine is hot. 
    1. Disconnect negative battery terminal. 
    2. Carefully remove high-tension leads. 
    3. Use compressed air to blow any dirt or debris from around spark plug hole. 
    4. Check that spark plug fits squarely in spark plug socket and remove spark plug.

    Raise a vehicle and install SST(OK552 131 001) in order to replace cylinder 2, 4, 6 spark plug. 

    INSTALLATION:

    1. Install spark plug into cylinder head.

    Tightening torque : 18~22lb-ft (25~30N·m, 2.5~3.0kg-m)

    2. Reconnect high-tension leads. 
    3. Reconnect negative battery cable. 

    Hope this helps and simple to understand. Good luck
