On top of your motor you may need to remove any engine covers. there might be a plastic one on the engine that says, 4.6L or what have your...once removed, if euipped, you should see individual coils. they go right through the top of the motor into the head...you will see each coil is bolted to a stud on the engine..remove the nut or bolt, and unplug the coil and remove it from the engine. look inside the well and you see the spark plug..use that appropriate size socket and remove it...its like that for all 8 plugs....now keep in mind that you should not change the order of thses coils because if you have a faulty coil, its easier to pin it on one cylinder then to change positions all the time..you will end up chasing your tail on this...if the coils have no problems, and everything is working fine, then the order in which you choose to install the coils, is of no significance...you can put the number one coil on the number eight cylinder and nothing will happen since its not a spark plug wire and fires that cylinder individually.

How do you replace the spark plug wires on 1997 Subaru outback/legacy?


Access from top is better but you must remove battery/washer reservoir driver's side and intake piping on passenger's side to get to the plugs. If you have bad back, access from underneath is fine but I'd have a ramp instead of jack for safety reasons.

Replace spark plug's


Things you will need
Spark Plug Socket And Wrench of the correct size for your spark plugs


Basic Instructions.
Step 1
Locate your spark plugs
look for other obstructions besides your spark plug wires
if you have any other obstructions you will need to remove them as well to gain access to your spark plugs.
Step 2
Remove the spark plug wire for one single spark plug at a time.
this will insure you will not replace the wrond spark plug wire to the incorrect spark plug,
if not done this way you could change the firing order of your engine.
Step 3
With your spark plug Socket and wrench rotate the spark plug in a counter clock wise direction for removing.
Step 4
After you have removed your spark plug insert your new replacement spark Plug into your spark plug socket before inserting it into the correct location. spark plug sockets are made to hold on to the spark plug for easy removal and install.
Step 5
insert your new spark plug,
before you rotate your spark plug for tightening rotate the spark plug a 1 quarter turn in the counter clock wise direction, then start tightening the spark plug by rotating it in a clockwise direction
This will insure you will not strip the threads.
Step 6
Continue rotation your spark plug in the clock wise direction untill snug, then with just a lil more pressure tighten it up just a little more.
be sure to not put to much force on the spark plug after it has been snug, you just have to apply a little more pressure but not to much that could cause it to break.
Step 7
After tightening the spark plug replace the correct spark plug wire.
then move on to the next spark plug and follow the same instructions.

if you have any other visiable obstructions preventing you access for replacing your spark plugs you will need instructions on how to remove them parts. i have just instructed you on how to remove and reinstall the spark plugs only.

How do you replace spark plugs.


One spark plug at a time. Use a 3/8 extension and a spark plug socket, the socket should have a piece of rubber in it to hold the spark plug in it. Remove the spark plug wire to gain access to the plug, then using the socket and rachet with the extension, turning to the left untill spark plug is all the way out. Looking at a spark plug can tell you several things about each cylinder they come from, so get a manual for your car, anyways replace new spark plug in the socket, be sure to double check the right gap, then replace by turning to the right/clockwise direction untill it is snug in the hole. Do not over tighten or under tighten. Replace the sparkplug wire and move to next plug. Good luck

Locate sparks plugs and wires


You won't find any wires...That vehicle is equtpped with Coil On Plug (COP) ignition. The spark plugs are located under the ignition coils. It is not recommended that you try to replace the spark plugs unless you have access to compressed air to blow dirt and debris out of the spark plug holes. I have had to replace many engine valves because of this.

Change spark plugs 4.7


To replace the spark plugs on the 4.7 engine, you have to remove your air cleaner box to get access to all of the spark plugs and coils, located on the top of the engine.

There's an individual coil attached to each spark plug. (8 plugs, 8 coils). To access the plugs, you need to remove the nut that is holding the coil in place. After the nut is removed, you simply pull the coil up and out of the engine. After the coil is removed, you can see the plug below. Remove the spark plug with a socket wrench. Gap and install the new plug, re-attach the coil and retaining nut. Repeat 7 more times.

Don't forget to reattach the air cleaner box!

Cant find the spark plugs


Here's a link that will help you. I've included the info that you need to locate the plugs below. Good luck!

http://www.ehow.com/how_4484637_replace-spark-plugs-oldsmobile-alero.html

To gain access to the spark plugs and spark plug wires do the following. In a 2.4 liter engine, remove the ignition coil and module assembly from the top of the engine to gain access. In this Alero model's engine, the spark plugs run down the center of the engine. In a 3.1 liter engine, remove the air cleaner to gain access. The spark plugs are located next to the engine oil reservoir. For a 3.4 liter engine, remove the windshield wiper module cover and rotate the engine for service access. For a 2.2 liter engine, the spark plug wires are located across the top of the engine and require no components to be removed for access to the spark plugs.

Spark plugs difficult to replace


The engine does need to be shifted to replace the rear plugs, but it is easy. Take out the dogbone engine mount in the front of the engine compartment and push the vehicle backwards while still in park , then throw the parking break on once the engine tips forward.

How do I remove the spark plug wires?


The metal tube stays in the heads. They make a special pair of pliers to remove the spark plug boots from the spark plug. You should replace the wires at the same time as the plugs on those models anyway though.

Replacing spark plug wires on 1995 Buick Riviera


You need to drain some coolant. Loosen and disconnect water lines by the firewall- the ones in the way of your wire change. u need to get a diagram of the firing order of the engine so that those wires are correctly connected to the coil packs.
