ONE AT A TIME! Take one wire off, replace the sparkplug, and replace the plug wire. Make sure that all connections are tight and move to the next one. I usually work from the back to the front. Also when replacing plug wires, they are a certain length. Match one up that is close to the same length. Hope this helps and remeber not to try to do more than one at a time!

Change spark plugs fuel filter fuel pump engine can not start

Wow! You've really got your hands full! 1) Verify the fuel pump is installed correctly and has power. 2) Verify the fuel filter is installed correctly. 3) Verify the spark plug wires are correctly installed. The number one reason for a car not running after an owner changes the spark plug wires - the wires were not installed to the correct cylinder.

How to change a spark plug wire or plug

The correct way of removing a plug wire on your particular car is to grab the lowest point of the spark plug boot and gently twist while pulling. once you have that out then find the correct socket size with an extension and turn the spark plug counter clockwise to remove. Install is the reverse.
The plug wire will be correctly installed when you feel a gentle click while pushing it on the new plug
Good luck!

To change plugs you need to remove the coil first. This engine has a coil for each plug.The plug is way down in the head. Use a deep well socket and an extension to remove the plug.Blow out the area around the plug with an air compressor before you remove the plug to keep debris out of the engine. The plug gap is .052 to .056 and the torque spec is 15 pound feet or 177 pound inches. Use some anti-seize on the plugs

You tune-up your car by changing the spark plugs, wires and oil change. if you have a four cylinder car you will have four spark plugs. If you have six cylinder you will have six spark plugs. You need to make sure you use the correct spark plugs to replace the old ones. Check with your parts company to make sure you get the correct ones. You will also need a spark plug socket. Remember when you take the plugs off the spark plugs, if have to remember to put them back the same way they came off. If you don't it could make the car misfire.

Engine light on

Have you checked the spark plugs since the light came on? you say that you belive they caused the light to come on? If this is true, are you sure that you spaced them properly? Proper spacing is crucial to making sure they fire correctly and every time. Also, are the correct wires put back in the correct firing order? If all this has been done correctly, take a look at the spark plugs. Do they still look new? Are they covered with oil or early signs of excessive corrosion? Appearences by any of these could point to problems with gaskets. Hope this helps.

Engine is not running after spark plugs and cables changed.

I assume it was running before you changed the plugs and wires, verify you didnt disconnect accidently another wire such as a crank position sensor or an oxygen sensor on or near exhaust manifold
also check the wire firing order make sure that is correct...

At how many miles do i change the sparkplugs and which are recomended

you should check your owners manual for manufacturer recomendations. If you do not have 1 then call or stop by you local dealership and talk to the service manager.

now personally I like the 50000 mile interval and prefer AC plugs.
