    could you tell me if when you turn the key to the run position should the malfonction and the serice reminder light be off or should they come on? i just bought this car and found two little bulbs in the consol thats why i was wondering about the two lites not coming on when i turn the key on

    usually, all lights should come on cause it test the light to make sure they turn on. they could be to change, since the new one might be the ones you found in there. check/change them and see if they work when you turn the key in. if they still don't work, you will have to test to see if the bulbs are getting power and so on, until the problem is corrected.

    if the lites are not in there could that be the reason the wont start (only spark out of one wire)

    no, the lights are only a warning, a signal that something is wrong. do you have a code reader ? if so, what are the dtc codes ?

Cylinder 6 misfire

could be a couple of things. 1) bad plug or spark gap. check plug for burning on electrode. check gap. if you replace 1 then replace them all. 2) check wires for any white lines. mainly around the boots, but check it all. the white lines are tell tale signs of arcing. replace if needed. 3) chech distributor cap & rotor for arcing. if you have a coil pack it could be whatever pack is controlling #6

How do I change the spark plugs for a 1998 Subaru forester?

Hello, first, you must remove the air cleaner housing Move the tube from the air cleaner and the intake on top of the engine by loosening the hose clamps at each end. It is still attached to a hose underneath but can be put out of the way

Remove the top of the air cleaner and the filter.

Remove the two 12mm bolts at each side of the bottom.

The side of the bottom is rubber gasket to the inside fender - just rotate slightly each way to loosen and pull off and put off to the side - there is still a wire attached.

Now pull off the spark plug caps on the side of the engine. This is a boxer engine which means the plugs are in a horizontal position on the sides. It is good to have a pair of spark plug pliers to do this as they are really difficult to remove. (spark plug pliers form a circle on the end when closed and are nice to grasp the caps with). Now you will need a 3/8 drive socket wrench, a 2" extension and a 5/8 deep socket Connect the extension and socket and feed it into the spark plug hole and over the spark plug. It is really deep inside. Now attach the wrench and remove the spark plug making sure you keep the tools level so as not to torque the plug side ways. Once the plug is real loose, unattached the wrench and hand loosen the plug with the extension because the wrench won't fit to remove the extension and socket attached. Remove the extension and socket and then spark plug. Put in the new plug reversing the steps.

98 Volvo V70 Turbo engine oil leak

It may be the gromet for the PCV valve or it could be the spark plug rubber seal located in the valve cover if it is the type of engine that has the wires and spark plugs that go down through the valve cover, if this is the case buy a valve cover gasket with the rubber gromets that are located around the base of the hole where spark plugs fit through and install.

Spark plugs

you can see the spark plug wires( front 4) on the valve cover where you put oil in the engine. they have a T shaped head that you twist back and forth while pulling up on them. The spark plugs can be removed with a spark plug socket and extension. The rear 4 plugs are in the valve cover by the firewall.
