This is a hard car to change them on unfortunetly but here is a guide to help you do it.
Tools required:


1 Crescent Wrench 1 "5/8 Spark Plug Socket 1 "3/8 Drive Ratchet 1 "3/8 Drive Extension 1 "1/4 Drive Ratchet 1 Pair of Small Channel Lock Pliers 1 Inverted Torx Socket Set
Even if you do not own any tools at most you should spend about $75 for the tools required to do this task.

Looking down at the engine you will see the two intake manifold runners and four boots for each one. Each boot has two clamps. The easiest way to take them off was to use a pair of small channel lock pliers to squeeze the clamp enough to unlatch the clip. they make a special tool for this, But its not really worth the money.



The front manifold is a little easier than the rear one. there are only three bolts that need to be unbolted and the manifold should slide off.


Now there are two bolts that need to be removed and the coil packs can be slid out.


The front spark plugs are now exposed and can be changed.

The rear is a little more tricky because there is more that needs to be removed off of the manifold. The PCM can either be unbolted or unplugged. Whichever method you choose you may be required to use the re-learn technique for the pass-key system. There are two vacuum hoses that go to a black box that need to be removed. There is a brass fitting that is holding a larger vacuum hose onto the manifold. There is a sensor that needs to be unplugged on the right side of the manifold. there are four bolts that hold the manifold down. there are 4 total and two are in the back of the manifold.


Now you should be ready to pull off the manifold. Make sure there are no more harnesses or sensors attached to the back of the manifold. It looks like there is one or 2 from the manual. Pull the manifold off and you will expose the coil pack. Unbolt it just like you did the front and pull the coil packs off to expose the rear spark plugs. Change your spark plugs and put everything back
If you require further assistance please feel free to let me know and i will be glad to assist you further. Thanks, Midwest-tek

You have a shorted wire. Check to make sure all the wires are on correctly and are tight. Also check for pinched, chaffed or corroded wires in the system.

What parts do I change to tune up my 2008 dodge caliber


For a standard tune-up, the parts needed include an air filter, oil filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, and spark plug wires. You should also have oil, transmission fluid, coolant, windshield washer fluid, and brake fluid available. A tune-up consists of topping off or replacing fluids, changing spark plugs and spark plug wires, changing the fuel, oil, and air filters, and checking the pressures of the tires. More detailed tune-ups run a diagnostic test on the vehicle to check for any codes that indicate additional issues.

My car had a tune up change plus not wires and its making a missing sound


a tune up consist of plugs,filters,wires, cap, oil, grease , brake inspection, trans filter,. this is funny. this guy asked me to look at his truck as he had a tune up on it and it ran for three days and quit, so i went to check it out, wouldnt start. after inspecting i noticed plug area looked as if they were as old as the milage 160,000. took 15 minutes to get one plug out, the electrode was burnt off completely, yet it had a tune up. cap and wires!! If you do a tune up it has to be complete or its not worth doing any of it,

Service engine soon light on; diagnostic code states: cylinder 7, Misfire


you need to have your engine tuned up, unless it's been done recently. misfire means it's not getting fire or fuel to #7 plug. you may have a plug wire bad or a bad spark plug on #7 if you go to effort of sending it to garage just to replace one plug or wire,you'll pay labor for whole tune up. wires,plugs, and maybe a bad coil pack. suggest you have tuned up with new plugs and wires. also while they are there, have them check fire to #7 plug on coil first before you do a complete tune up. thank you for choosing fixya.com

Does the car have spark plug wires? i went to purchase some wires but the clerk said my car takes coil packs.. so do that mean i dont need wires for the spark plug tune-up??


So you want to tune it up , but someone has to tell you it has no wires? Have you looked at the engine at all? why do you want to do a tune up? The coils are very problem prone, and you need to use care in replacing the spark plugs, use only Auto-lite or Motorcraft platinum spark plugs, and use a silicone grease in the boots. After you remove the coil, blow compressed air down the tube an dblow out any dirt, before removing the spark plug. Wires are/were never an item for a tune up, unless they were bad. Replace the fuel filter.
