No you do not need to remove anything. In the rear they may look hard to get to, but you can come in from the passenger side to get to the plugs. The proper length extension, socket, and ratchet will prove to be successful. The wires if in clips is the hardest thing to get loose if you are replacing them. Use a long flathead screwdriver to remove those wires from the clips.

Plugs and wires 2005 mercury sable


What engine do you have, I will assume a DOHC V6, the DOHC V6 doesn't have spark plug wires, each spark plug (located under the igntion coil) has its own separate ignition coil, it is called direct ignition. You unbolt the coil and remove it with the attached spark plug boot and then you remove the spark plug from the cylinder and replace, do one at a time.

I'm trying to locate the 02 sensor up and down stream on my 1998 mercury 3.0 dohc could i please have a picture or diagram.


You will, in all probability have to get under the car to see it-you have one in front of the catalytic converter (each side) and one behind the cat (it doesn't really affect how the car runs, it only monitors the car efficency)-the O2 sensors are perpendicular to the exhaust pipe and have a 4-wire harness connected to it. they look like this:

1989 Mercury Sable, 3.0L V-6, Auto Trans. Engine Idles at about 2000 RPM.


Check your vacuum hoses (They are 3/8" Rubber hosing on the right side of the engine, you will need to remove the air intake piping (Also remove the throttle body to make accessing them easier) This is the #1 cause of high idling in the 3.0 OHV and 3.0 DOHC sable engines.

Spark Plug replacement instructions


It really is that hard, (1.5 hours) no special tools required except a good assortment of hand tools and flex head extensions. Buy a plug boot removal tool, if you tear the plug wire boots you will really be in a pickle. I never took the fuel lines loose, did the job many times, but my hands looked like hamburger when I was done.
