    That was for the 3.0 L engine, not the 3.8L engine. Let me know if you need data for the 3.8L engine.

I have 60 psi of compression on one cylinder in a 1997 Honda accord 4 cylinder what can I expect?


Usually the easiest way to tell is to remove the spark plug of the cylinder in question, put a few ounces of motor oil in the cylinder thru the spark plug hole, insert compression tool and crank over a few then reset compression tool and test. If compression rises then the issue is related to the rings being damaged and the engine will have to be tore down fully to repair. If the oil doesnt make much of a difference then the problem is probably a leaking valve or valve related issue. If you have the knowledge you can inject compressed air with that cylinder and see if you hear air hissing through the intake manafold or exhause manafold as that would support issue being with valves.
Hope this helps

Where are the coils on a 2002 kia sportage? (are they under the intake manafold?)


I guess you are referring to the spark plug coils, they are on the center of the motor head. Remove the TPS metal tube,unscrew the center cover and you will see them.

Own a 1997 mercury grand marquis. went to change the spark plugs and didn't see the normal rotor, sparkplugs, etc. where are the plugs located and how do i change them


The 4.6 does not have an traditional distributor. This year engine should have two coil packs located on the front of each valve cover. Each coil pack controls four cylinders. Some of the plug wires will cross over the front of the engine in a wire loom on top of the alternator. The spark plugs are located down in the intake manafold. they run beside the fuel rail on each side of the intake manafold where it joins to each head. You will need an extention at least 8 to 10 inches long to get at the spark plugs. The plug wire fit snuggly into the intake manafold and have an extention on them that connects to the spark plug.

Want to change the spark plugs do i need to take the manifold off


Best investment to buy for this car is the break down book (Chilton or Hayes) That will tell you everyting you need to know. but...just did this on my car. have to start by removing the throttle body and disconnecting the 2 cables attatched to it. Then the bracket attatched to the manafold for the throttle body. next remove the air intake assembly. Now with all that out of the way. remove the 2 bolts from the metal tubing for the thermostat. I believe theres like 7 or 8 visible bolts on the intake manafold it self. Remove those. Then theres 2 that are kinda tricky to get to. Damn Mopar for this...one is on the right side as your looking at it back twards the fire wall almost and the other is on the left side, same situation. Need a universal joint socket adapter to get to those. With all that removed, it should come off fairly easy.

What is the easest way to get to and change a coil pack on a 05 ford escape


Depending on which motor you have will determine how to change the pack. I am not familiar with the 4 cylender motors but I assume that they are in the open. If you have the V6 then you are in for a little work. There are 3 packs in the front of the motor that are easly accessable. You will see them right on top. The other 3 are hidden under the intake manafold. If you are certian that it is a pack from under the manafold, Cylenders 4,5, or 6. Then do a search on how to change the spark plugs and you will find a very good page on how to get that manafold off. You will need new upper gaskets after removing the manafold. The new pack, and you may want to throw a new set of spark plugs in while you are there. If you have close to 100k miles on it then I would recomend that you change them while the intake is off.

Plug replace


This is a outstanding question!!! The plugs or wires are not visible from the top or sides of the moter. You just can't see em'!!! You have to remove the large black plastic air intake. Then remove the intake manafold(not too hard to do) to access the spark plugs and wires.
Also: After removing all the black plastic air intake stuff, you'll have to remove the coil pack (long black plastic thing that says "Ecotek" on top). The coil pack is removed by disconnecting the wire connector on the driver's side end and then removing four bolts. To lift off the coil pack, you'll have to pull upwards firmly and evenly from both sides, because the spark plug boots or wires are holding onto the spark plugs as well as the coil. With the coil pack removed, look down into the silver channels - there's the plugs. To remove, you'll need a plug socket head and a socket wrench with long extension. To replace the plugs, I use an extra or old spark plug boot to hold the plug and get it started turning into the engine threads. Good Luck!
