It is probably the grommet between the valve coner and the spark plug tube you will have to remove the plenum and the plug wires to remove the valve cover to change the grommet and should do all six and check or change the plugs esp the oily one

I mixed the distributor cables up,so i need the order to correctly connect

If the wires are still in the distributer, AND, if you have a stock intake manifold, the firing order is on the manifold. If it's a V-8, the number 1, 3, 5, & 7 plugs are on the drivers side of the engine. The number 2, 4, 6, & 8 plugs are on the passenger side. The number 1 plug wire can be located by looking at the distributer from the front of the engine and visually looking between the distributer and the number 1 plug. Visualize the distributer as a clock. The number one position should be located between 4 and 5 o'clock and should have the longest wire of those on that side of the distributer.

If the wires have been pulled from the distributer, then, then, remove the rotor cap, turn the engine over slowly until the rotor is pointing to the number 1 plug. Using the firing order on the intake manifold, starting with number 1, replace the wires going clockwise around the distributer.

I have 2 questions... 1) I have a 1986 nissan 300zx how dose one know if its turbo or non-turbo?...on my engine the plate says V6 3000... 2) How the heck do you get to the spark plugs?..iv tryed to get...

if its a turbo you should see something like this, this is an example only the thing on the right with the silver snail type thing is the turbo, you should have 2 of these if its the turbo c993b18.jpg

how to change the plugs--First start by removing the negative battery cable from the battery post. Ok next remove the center plastic cover on top of the motor that says "3000 v6". Now in between each gap in the in intake plenum u should notice the tops of what are called coil packs. Each one has two bolts holding it in and a wire loom coming out of each pack. The first pack is directly left of the oil cap(if facing motor). Remove each bolt then the wire connection. After that gently pull until the pack comes out. Take your spark plug socked and remove plug. Be really carefull not to drop debres in the hole. Repeat this step for the first two on the left side and the first one on the right side (again facing motor). A couple of them you will notice has a small metal plate with a #8 screw holding the wire down, remove this to keep from damaging your wires. Now this is where it gets hard U will have to remove the balance tube on the back of the intake plenum. Calm down its not really that bad, just time consuming. Remove all vacum tubes and hoses from the balance tube and then remove the 1 nut and 2 bolts holding each side down. After that carry on and remove the packs as normal, hope this helps you...good luck

Spark plug replacement

remove the 20" black spark plug bar, it is held down with 2 bolts on the left side of the motor (your left). the six plugs are inline under there. VERY IMPORTANT on use Champion Platuim Plugs.

Spark plugs cylinder filled with oil

motor oil in the combustion chambers[where the spark plugs are] is NOT NORMAL it is evidence of failure of valve seals and/or worn piston rings,requiring major motor repair.try to return it & get your money back,or at least a credit towards repair.

Oily spark plug,changed plugs now car smokes

You changed 6 coils, but you didn't change spark plugs? The new coils give strong spark to burn off resisdues from your old plugs plus what ever left inside the combustion due to bad old coils causing smoke and bad ordor. Change all new spark plugs so you can have good ignition to burn off all junks inside combustion chambers. Smokes are at the beginning, but it will go away after less than 10 minutes.
If it is not going away you may have other problemS:
Rich mixture causing engine check light come on.
Check if engine oil level.
Check if your coolant level.
Open the oil cap to see if you have milky stuff. If there is milky stuff then you have bad head gasket.
Let me know what is coming out so others can learn from your experience. Good luck.

I believe that year had distributorless ignition, instead it uses a form of coil on plug ignition system.

If you open the hood, stand at the front of the vehicle. Look to the left side of the engine, around the bottom of the valve cover (The valve cover is where the oil fill cap is. The oil fill cap is on top of the valve cover), at the bottom of the valve cover on the left side you will see a series of humps. Those series of humps is the coil packs, the coil packs are all in one long piece held down by three or four bolts.

Take out those bolts, gently pry up at the ends of the coil pack and it will eventually come out. You'll see on the bottom side the spark plug boots are attached to the coil pack. After you get the ignition coil pack off, you will see the spark plugs under where the coil pack came from, the boots on the coil pack sit directly on the spark plugs.

I took my van in for a basic turnup and oil change that was $264.

If you remove the engine cover from inside the vehicle you will gain access to the spark plug wires and spark plugs. The spark plug wires come out of the distrubtor cap thats at the rear of the motor, the spark plug wires run to the left side of the motor and to the right side an end up attached to the spark plugs. Reolace spark plug wires one at a time so you dont mix them up, this is fairly easy the only difficult part is getting your hands in the small space in the engine compartment. Hope this was helpful.

Clicking noise

happened to our `89 voyager,

check to see if the cover where the spark plugs are(i think they are to the left of the engine) and see if they are zapping the side of the engine head itself. it happened to ours and simply had to replace the spark plug cover.

hope it helps.
