Those bright red covers you see are the tops of the coil packs. You just pull them off they are easy to replace and the plugs are beneath them

Does anyone know the spark plug wire order on a d15b7

Oil is leaking into your spark plug holes from the valve chamber. It's not a good idea to leave the oil in the spark plug holes, as it can pool high enough to damage the rubber boots of your spark plug wires, will make the plug hole really messy, and it may eventually become a fire hazard. Below is how to fix it.

Honda's preferred spark plug location means that the plugs (and their wires) must pass through deep recesses in the top of the valve covers to get to the combustion chamber. This gives better plug placement in the combustion chamber, and more zoom for your Honda. It creates a small problem though: Under the valve cover, all around the spark plug recesses, is an open space that is constantly being showered with oil, and that oil will get into the spark plug recesses unless something is done to keep it out. Honda does this by sealing any joins between parts with little rubber donuts (AKA "grommets").

The rubber donuts eventually get old and stop sealing, letting oil seep into the spark plug holes and puddle there. The cure is replacement of all four (or six), along with the valve cover gasket itself (themselves) at the same time. It's an easy project for anyone who's done more than just oil changes.

However, there's a fly in the ointment here: Certain Honda engines, specifically the 4-valve-per-cylinder, single-overhead-cam ones (such as the D15B that's used in many Civics), have an additional rubber seal under the one I just mentioned! This one also gets old and starts leaking, but these are a LOT harder to replace! Not a job for a beginner!

NOTE: The rubber parts under discussion here are not actually red and orange, they're black, I just used colors to make it clearer which was what.

Headlamp wiring

I'm going to start out by saying I don't know. But between the two of us we should be able to figure it out. I don't know how the wires are coming out of the new plug.
On the truck, the left headlight harness is white green, red black, and green black. White green is power, red black is the ground for the high beam, and green black is ground for the low beam.
On the right side, dark blue light green is power, and the other two are the same color as the left side.
If you look at the right side and figure out which terminal on the headlight the dark blue light green wire goes to, that is the same terminal you use on the left side for power. Then the other two wires are the same for both sides.
I can post a wiring diagram if you think it will help.

No spark in the coil now

You need to look up how to replace the valve cover seals

You obviously know you have an oil leak on the plugs

Using a screw driver may have ruined the ignition module,
at least use a spark plug in the cable, when you ground it
Check the other wires for spark

You always find info for doing any testing on electrical or
electronics,were not living in the 1960's any more,bad things happen

Need Valve Cover Gasket Set
Need New Ignition Wires
May as well do the Spark Plugs

The ignition components will sort themselves
out when you do take care of the oil leak,plugs
& wires

Make a little engine noise and shake a little.

Change spark plugs After checking. Open hood in the dark of night and look for sparking
along the plug wires and at the spark plugs themselves. If you can see sparking (or hear it) replace the wires.

Where are the spark plugs located?

The spark plugs will be in the engine compartment going to each cylinder.

If you look at your engine, you should see on the sides of it, a thick cable
going into each cylinder base. These will be your spark plug wires, and they
will be connected to the Distributor or Coil packs on the other end.

If your car is twin cam, you will see the plug wires will go through the Valve cover.
The spark plug wires will generally be black or red and have some little writing on them.

Cant find spark plugs

Unclip, then remove the air plenum covering the coil packs, separate ignition coils for each cylinder, on either side of the main air plenum section.
Then remove each of the coil packs, they will look like long thin black strips that cover and connect the spark plugs. Replace the plugs after determining the specs for the proper gap.
Dab a bit of corrision resistant grease to the plug tips prior to reinstalling the coil packs.
After the coil packs are reinstalled you will then reinstall the plenum sections.
Good luck. :)

Where are the spark plugs and wires on a 2001 Lincoln Continenta?

This engine has coil on plug ignition. Ontop of each valve cover is an access plate with bolts you remove. After gaining access you will see the 4 seperate wires on each cylinder bank. At the end of each wire is the spark plug boot. Pull each one off one at a time while replacing the spark plugs. The wires themselves at the other end each have a seperate coil. I have not had to replace my wies and coils but did replace the sparkplugs at 100K miles.

Ihave changed the spark plugs but i dont know if put the caps in

Not sure what you're asking. The only order that matters is the order of the spark plug wires. There isn't an order for the spark plugs themselves. So are u looking for the order of the spark plug wires?
