Question about 2001 Ford Expedition
Can't find spark plugs on 2001 ford expedition
That's because they are hidden quite well. If you look at the engine, you'll see yellow plastic prongs (?) that look like spark plugs, but hook up to the silver tubing. That's the fuel injectors. BUT, right behind the yellow plugs, are black ones. The black one is the connector to the spark plug. The plug itself sits about 4 inches down into the block of the engine. They are a real pain, and from what I can tell, you only have decent access to the first 2-4 of them, then they get too far back and start going under the dash (you'll see what I mean when you get there).

no special tools,this is what tools you will need:.7mm socket for the coil packs where underneath them is a deep hole and down there is the plugs---8mm socket for the fuel rail bolts(for the left side sitting in it)which i would use 1/4 inch drive for these--- 5/8 plug socket---6 inch extension---3 inch extension---ratchet---swivel---which i would use 3/8 inch drive for these---and maybe long needle-nose pliers incase the rubber boot from the coil packs come off and sticks to the plug.

You have what is called a 'coil-over plug' system, which means there is a seperate ignition coil for each plug. On each side you will see 4 small plastic boxes with a single bolt and some wires plugged into it. Remove the bolt, unplug the wires and pull the coil out. the plug is in the hole. Repeat for all 8.
