Where is the spark plugs located for the 2002 4 cylinder highlander located. Plan on replacement.


First, remove the no. 1 engine cover. Locate the ignition coils, these will be squarish-looking packs with spark plug wires (4 of them) coming out. The wires should be going to the spark plugs, which are on the front and back side of the engine.
Grab the ignition coils or spark plug wires by the thick plastic piece at the end of the wire. Squeeze the end and turn it to release it from the spark plug. Pull back to remove the plug from the engine.
Slide the spark plug socket over the spark plug. The most common size of spark plug socket used on a Toyota Highlander is 16mm. Turn the socket to the left to unscrew and remove the spark plug from the cylinder well.

Toyota Highlander_ How to change plugs


The Toyota Highlander is available in three different engine sizes: 2.4, 3.0 and 3.3 liter. The basic technique for replacing spark plugs is used for both engine sizes, but depending on the engine size you need to remove different parts from the Toyota Highlander to gain access to the spark plugs.
  1. 1 Pull the hood release and raise the hood on the Highlander. Allow the engine plenty of time to cool.
  2. 2 Remove some components to reach the spark plugs. On a 3.3 liter engine, unscrew and remove the V-bank cover and intake air tank. On a 2.4 and 3.0 liter engine, remove the number one engine cover.
  3. 3 Locate the ignition coils and spark plug wires that connect directly to the spark plugs or directly to the engine in the Toyota Highlander. In 2001 and 2002 models, theses are on the front and back of the engine. On models made after 2002, the spark plugs are along the sides. Grab the ignition coils or spark plug wires by the thick plastic piece at the end of the wire. Squeeze the end and turn it to release it from the spark plug. Pull back to remove the plug from the engine.
  4. 4 Slide the spark plug socket over the spark plug. The most common size of spark plug socket used on a Toyota Highlander is 16mm. Turn the socket to the left to unscrew and remove the spark plug from the cylinder well.
  5. 5 Apply a thin coat of anti-seize compound to the spark plug thread and into the wire boot to reduce the chance of sticking.
  6. 6 Insert the spark plug into the well and manually turn the plug into place. If you cannot reach the plug well manually, insert the plug into the socket and extension and use the extension to turn the plug into place. Do not use a socket wrench or flexible extension for this process because their force damages the spark plug.
  7. 7 Connect the ignition coil or spark plug wire to the spark plug. Turn to lock it into place.
  8. 8 Continue this process for the rest of the spark plugs. Replace any removed items onto the engine and lower the hood.

How To Find An Electrical Engine Miss


One way to find an engine miss, start the vehicle, and with a pair of leather gloves, (so you don't get a jolt and you might want to remove each wire boot and reinstall with the motor not running, this will help ease removal of the spark plug wires when the motor's running, also spraying some WD-40 and twisting the spark plug wire boots will help in removal of the spark plug wire). You'll want remove 1 spark plug at a time, if the engine bogs down or idle drops, put the wire back on, go to the next spark plug wire, until you get to the spark plug wire that has no effect on the running of the motor when you remove the spark plug wire from the plug, that is the cylinder that has a problem. The problem causing this could be the spark plug (wrong spark plug gap), a bad spark plug wire, the terminal on the distributor cap, or even an internal engine problems i.e, intake or exhaust valves, bent pushrods, broken or weak valve springs, or bad compression rings on the piston. This will help you narrow it down to what cylinder it is. If removing all of them doesn't make much difference, there could be a vacuum leak, caused by a broken or disconnected vacuum hose or fuel delivery problems, plugged fuel filter, low fuel pressure, or a bad fuel pressure regulator.

Inspection

Inspect for the correct routing of the spark plug wires. Improper routing may cause cross-firing. Inspect each wire for any signs of cranks or splits in the wire. Inspect each plug wire boot for tearing, piercing, arcing, carbon tracking or a corroded terminal.
If there is any corrosion, carbon tracking or arcing indicated on a plug wire boot or terminal, both the plug wire and component it was connected to should be replaced.

How do I change the spark plug of the dodge magnum 2006


· Open the hood and remove the bolts that hold the engine cover in place, if your Dodge comes with an engine cover (depending on model and year). If so equipped, pull the cover off the engine.

· 2

Grab a spark plug wire by the base of the wire and pull the wire up and out of the engine. (You may need to wiggle it back and forth while pulling up on it to get it out of the engine.)

· 3

Trace the wire back to the power distributor and pull the spark plug wire off the distributor. Make a note of the plug orientation.

· 4

Install the new plug wire in the place of the removed one. Match the new wire with the old one to make sure they have the same size. Press the plug wire over the distributor electrode and onto the spark plug firmly, so that the ends are secure. Installation is the reverse of removal procedure.

· 5

Repeat the above procedure for all the other spark plug wires. It is best to change all the spark plug wires at the same time.

    WHERE ARE THE SPARK PLUGS LOCATED ON MY 1999 PONTIAC GRAND AM


    Hi. here's the procedure on how to replace your spark plugs. Spark plug location is in this procedure.

  • Park the car in cool, shady area and allow the engine to cool.
  • Step 2 Remove the parts of the Grand Am engine that hinder access to the spark plugs. For a 2.2 L engine, remove the ignition coil housing. For a 2.4 L engine, remove the bolts that hold the retaining ignition coil and disconnect the electrical connector. Pull the assembly straight up and away from the engine to remove it. For a 3.1 L engine, remove the air cleaner. For a 3.4 L engine, remove the windshield wiper module cover and rotate the engine for service access to the rear spark plugs.
  • Step 3 Locate the spark plug wire and grab it by the spark plug boot. Twist the boot in both directions and pull back to remove the wire.
  • Step 4 Insert the spark plug socket over the old spark pull and unscrew it from the cylinder well. Remove the old spark plug.
  • Step 5 Lubricate the threads of the new spark plug and screw it into the cylinder well.
  • Step 6 Test the tension and adjust it to the required setting. It needs to be 15 ft-lbs. for a 2.2 L engine, 16 ft-lbs. for a 2.4 L engine, 13 ft-lbs. for a 3.1 L engine, and 11 ft-lbs. for a 3.L engine.
  • Step 7 Reconnect the spark plug wire and twist it to lock the plug in place.
  • Step 8 Repeat Steps 3 through 7 for the remaining spark plugs.
  • Step 9 Replace all of the parts that were removed from the Grand Am in Step 2 to reach to the spark plugs.
