You dont need to lower the motor to do this you may have to get from the underneigth of the car or remove the rear wiper bucket this will give you more room, a trick i learned but not sure if this van has it is if you have two wish bone type engine mounts on top of the engine then unbolt them and pry engine forward then slide bolt into mount and hole on bottom of mount, here a diadram of the mount. hope this helps.How do you lower the motor to change the back - 9c8a95b.jpg

Getting a rapid misfire in cylinder 5 changed spark plugs ,cleared the code came back on the day later ???

Hi Jason, Sounds like you have a coil pack and one of your coils is faulty. To check which coil is faulty just pull a spark plug lead off a spark plug and plug the spark plug lead onto a SPARE spark plug, Now earth it to the CLEAN motor or body (make sure the spark plug is touching metal) Start the motor, it's going to run ROUGHER than usual but you'll see if that spark plug is sparking... If it sparks then that coil is good. Turn the motor off and replace the spark plug lead back on to the original spark plug. Repeat with the next spark plug lead and so on until you start your car and the spark plug doesn't spark, THAT'S YOUR FAULTY COIL...

Is it possible to upset the timing by changing plugs and wires?

The timing in itself can't be affected by different leads and sparkplugs. The actual spark delivered in the cylinder differs when using other leads and sparkplugs than recommended by the Hyundai. This can go either way - better spark (high performance plugs) or less spark (lower quality materials).

Next to this leads can have leaks due to manufacturing faults. Simple way to test this is to open the hood when it's dark with running engine. Blue sparks are signs of leaks in the cables / caps.

K1500 1999 Vortec 350. Weak spark causing motor to flood. Suddenly spark gets brighter and the motor starts right up. It takes forever to get to that point though. Any thoughts?

another issue that causes flooding in the Vortec 350 ( which, I assume you have) is the fuel injection spider. The spider assembly also contains a fuel pressure regulator if faulty can allow too much fuel to pass through the injectors fouling the plugs (a common problem), While your in the upper intake you might as well take care of your lower. A leaky inner seal on the lower intake can cause out to ceep in to your heads causing a faulty spark.

Easy why too change back spark plugs 88cadillac deville

put a jack under the front of the motor, take off the motor mount and lower the jack to rock the motor forward to allow for extra room, be sure not to jack up the oil pan and put a board on the jack to protect the motor from damage

Wont start granduer 2000

your solenoid may be on its way out its a small electronically triggered plate switch on the side of the starter motor which starts the starter motor which in turn starts your car, its a small cylinder shape, but in saying that it could be a number of things like dirty or damaged sparkplugs or injectors but you say it was jus serviced so id say they checked them another thing it could be is a minor crack in the head gasket to be able to tell if it is look at your taco wen it starts if the revs move up and down or just lower its cracked or remove a spark plug and get a compression tester (its just a hose with a gauge on the end)and screw it into the spark plug hole and check the compression of each cylinder should sit round 100 to 150 for each cylinder if its lower than that its cracked, if you need more help or info get back to me

Changing spark plugs

Same way you changed the front, but harder. You have to remove the air cleaner and hoses, then you can reach around the back side of the motor. Pain in the ****.

Spark plug well filling with oil.

a new valve cover gasket and o-rings around the wells should have cured this...did you clean the old o-rings off the valve cover completely before installing new ones? this is a common problem with these models.....i would re-check my gaskets and mateing surfaces. valve cover gaskets and spark plug well o-rings are relatively low cost. the spark plug is tight, correct? write back with an update!
