How u change spark plugs


Hi there:


First I suggest purchase the spark plugs from your local auto parts dealer. Make sure to indicate the year, make and model of your vehicle to make sure you get the proper spark plugs. Locate the spark plug wires that run from the distributor cap to the cylinders on the left side of the engine. Use an 8 mm socket to remove the bolt that holds the coil pack on the cylinder, put the bolt in a safe place and pull the coil off. You only want to work on one spark plug at a time so you don't get the wires mixed up.



Insert the 3/8 or 5/16 inch hexagon socket and extension into the spark plug cavity and turn counterclockwise very carefully. Once the spark plug is free, bring it out of the cavity and put it to the side.
Place a new spark plug in the cavity threads pointing up and tighten until snug in a clockwise direction. Repeat for the other two spark plugs in this area.


Rear Spark Plugs
Position yourself so you can see the throttle body. There will be an Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) valve on the front part of the plenum, which is right behind the throttle body.
Use a 10 mm socket to remove the two EGR valve bolts and nuts. Turn these in a counterclockwise direction and put them in a safe place. This will help release the EGR tube. If it does not release the tube, pull the tube to disconnect it.
Grab the gasket that is located between the two bolts, remove it, and put it to the side. Replace the gasket when you put things back together.
Move to the passenger side of the plenum and find the vacuum switch. Pull the hoses off and disconnect the electrical wiring by pulling it away from this area.
Find the eight bolts that hold the upper intake plenum on the back two cylinders and remove them in a counterclockwise direction. Grab the sides of the plenum and rotate up and towards the driver's side of the vehicle. This will give you access to the rear spark plugs. The gasket on the plenum is reusable unless it is damaged.
Use a 3/8 or 5/16 inch socket and extension to remove the spark plugs. Insert the socket and extension into the cavity and rotate in a counterclockwise direction. Be careful while removing and replacing the spark plugs as they are delicate and you don't want them to break, especially while in the spark plug cavity.
Replace with new spark plugs, with the thread side up. Put the plenum back in the reverse order.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Were is spark plug number 1 at on my 3 cylinder geo metro


On GM inline engines,cylinder #1 is the one closest to the front(pulley)end of the engine. If you pulled the wires off the distributor/coil pack,and don't know where they go,put one wire one at a time and crank it.If it doesn't backfire,repeat until it starts.(this is only easy on 4 cylinder or smaller engines)

Tdc for 2005 Hyundai accent 1.6 sohc


Standing in front of the car, #1 cylinder is the farthest left. This is the one you have to get at top dead center. Remove the spark plug and insert a rod that is long, so you don't loose it in the cylinder. Then turn the crankshaft until the rod is all the way up and just starts to go down. When it starts to go down crank it back a hair , this is top dead center. Being a 4 cylinder , you don't have to worry if it is on the compression stroke. You will set the cam for this.

I have a 2004 Mercury Marquis. V8 4.6L. I have a Car MD which I used to determine the engine light on codes The codes refer to changing the #1 igniter and all spark plugs. My question is which is the...


You change spark plugs every 60,000 miles or
3 years

Car MD etc ,doesn't tell you to change plugs,that is silly

They wear,but never fail to fire.

Have you even looked over the task at hand?

You don't have to remove anything but the plugs,
unless you have COP ignition,then you remove the
coil first.

#1 is on the front right side of a ford
Doesn't matter how the engine is positioned

Need help with a tune up and need a picture of where fuel filter and spark plug go I talk to someone from napa and they said that I can get a picture of my motor.


the fuel filter is under the car on the driver`s side along the floor board ahead of the fuel tank.the spark plugs are in the cylinder head.you don`t say what motor is in this car,4 cylinder motors the plugs are always at the front of the motor looking at the motor standing in front of the car,6 cylinder motors there are 3 plugs along the front of the motor and 3 plugs at the back of the motor standing in the same place as I mentioned before.you just have to follow the spark plug wires to the plugs and change them one at a time so you don`t mix up the firing order

When installing the distributor should the rotor point at the number #1 spark plug or more toward the front of the engine? also the spark from the coil and spark plugs look to be yellow or orange! shouldnt...


Don, this depends on the position that the distributer was in when it was removed. So, I presume that you do not know that...

here is what you do next: Pull plug #1, ground coil output, place finger over plug hole and turn the engine over until compression stroke can be detected (air rushing past your finger) then observe the timing marks on cranskshaft. this may take a few times until you are sure that you are on compression stroke and near top dead center of #1. Then install the dist pointing towards #1 plug position of the dist cap...

Spark color not very relevant, needs to be measured with scope. But probably it is okay..
