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).

SOURCE: chaning spark plugs 02 expedition

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.

SOURCE: Where are the spark plugs located?

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.

Locate sparks plugs and wires


You won't find any wires...That vehicle is equtpped with Coil On Plug (COP) ignition. The spark plugs are located under the ignition coils. It is not recommended that you try to replace the spark plugs unless you have access to compressed air to blow dirt and debris out of the spark plug holes. I have had to replace many engine valves because of this.

I have a 2001 Ford Expedition 4.6 4WD. Service engine soon light came on and when checked at parts store diagnostics said cylonder #2 miss firing. Is this a coil pack because we can't find plugs,...


If you do not see a distributor or spark plug wires, then you have a coil over plug system. Changing the coil pack is as easy as removing the hold down bolt and lifting the coil pack off the spark plug. Other things should be checked like signal to the coil, the fuel injector signal and the spark plug

Plugs are near the top of the cylinder heads facing upwards. They are not fun to change as the passenger's side doesn't have a lot of room to work in.

2001 Ford Expedition Blew Spark Plug, fixed that now won't shift.


On the trans you have a shifting module that might need replace just make sure that the shifting lever is aline with the mark on the shifting module.(Drivers side)
As far as the plug goes you can so thread lock tight to keep it in.
