Remove front upper "dog bone" motor mount and tilt the engine forward. they make a special tool for this but you may be able to use a pry bar or chain with some help.

How do you change spark plugs


Hi Gary!

If you got a CAR and not a truck, there are a few things you need to pay attention to when replacing spark plugs.

You need to make sure your spark plugs are the issue for whatever the problem is.
Take a 16mm SPARKPLUGS spanner (it's a special sort of tool that you buy in the shop, unless you have it, don't bother to try with anything else, or your could do some damage), unplug one of the cables attached to one of the sparkplugs (make sure you don't unplug more that one, so you won't mess the order), take your magic tool (sparkplug socket spanner or whatever it is called) fit it on top of the sparkplug, (listen for the clicking) and then twist it left until the sparkplug is out.

Have a look to your sparkplug, and see if there is any carbon on it (if it's black, it has to be replaced/sandpapered)

repeat the operation to the other (alledgedly 3) sparkplugs, naking sure you DO NOT MESS UP the order of the cables that connect to the sparkplugs.

If finally you've decided it is time to replace the sparkplugs, under NO circumstances, replace less than ALL of them. (unless you replace them on the car of someone you don't like)

How to change spark plugs


Those are as easy as they come these days. Mark each spark plug wire with a piece of tape with the cylinder # written on it, so as not to mix up the wires. Remove each spark plug wire by firmly grasping the wire by the boot (do not pull on the wire) and twist it back and forth a few times while pulling slowly. It should pop off without a great deal of effort. If it is seized and it breaks, you will have to replace the wire, or at the very least replace the terminals (if you can get some). Use an air hose and blow around the base of each spark plug to dislodge any loose dirt that could fall into the cylinders (not absolutely necessary, but a good idea). Remove each spark plug with a spark plug socket and extension and ratchet (I forget which size socket, it's either 5/8 or 13/16). Check the gaps of each new spark plug (typically around 0.035 in). re-install each new spark plug by hand (do not cross-thread them) and once you have ensured that the plug is threaded in properly, tighten the plug until it seats, and then tighten an additional 1/16 of a turn. Repeat this for the remaining plugs. Re-install wires to the corresponding spark plugs. You're done!

How do I get the spark plugs out of my 1998 ford escort to replace with new ones? Also where does the pcp Valve go?


With you hood open and you are standing in front of the car sparkplug wires need to be removed,i suggest you remove them one at a time, under each wire the sparkplug is threaded into the cylinder head,using a 5/8 sparkplug socket remove the sparkplug and replace it with new properly gapped sparkplug.Note:if you remove all sparkplug wires at once the factory wires are generally numbered 1 2 3 4 the sparkplug closesed to the passenger fender is #1 and the one clossesed to the driver's fender is #4.Standing in front of vehicle the PCV Valve is located between #3 and #4 on the backside(intake side) of the engine fitted down into a rubber hose

How do you change the spark plugs for a 1999 toyota avalon


This isnt a simple job, its best that a experienced mechanic works on this. You will need special tools for access to the rear head. All sparkplugs in the 1MZFE motor are in the center of the cylinder heads. There are COPs (coil over plugs) atop the sparkplugs, these must be removed first.**With Engine Cold** Front head: 1.remove Coils 2.use 5/8th plug socket and extension w/ratchet turn ratchet counter clockwise till plug is loose. 3. install new plugs (make sure the plugs are properly gapped). Rear Head: Intake manifold must be removed (you need a very large allen wrench for the intake bolts removal). Once this is removed follow the same steps as the front head. Here is some illustrations on the 1MZFE engine: http://www.turboninjas.com/camry/eg2.pdf

HOPEFULLY THIS HELPS

How to change sparkplugs in my 2004 Ford Expedition


This vehicle's sparkplugs are located on the intake, right beside the fuel injectors. This is a time consuming job, and it is recommended to replace all COPs (Coil on plugs) very costly!! **WARNING**>> Work on the plugs with the engine cold, these engines are know for very little sparkplug threading and causing the plugs to eject while in operation. Be very carfeful installing as they are installed at an angle.

Having trouble getting to the back sparkplugs


however you can get there is the best way.(depending on the tools you have) be careful not to put side pressure on the plug socket or you can snap the plug off. ALWAYS use anti-seize compound on new plug threads when re-installing.
If the plugs you are removing do not unscrew easily, stop when they start to bind, spray solvent there, then screw back in , back out again, spray and repeat as many times as necessary till removed, otherwise you can take the threads right out of the head (you won't like that)
