I replaced the spark plugs in my 2005 grand am and now it won't start what could it be

Did you put the same wires back on the same plugs you took
them off of? If not you'll have to check the firing order of your vehicle.
if you crossed a couple of wires when you changed the plugs, that could cause a no start or a rough idle.

How do I replace spark plugs and wires on chevrolet equinox 2011 2.4 liter front wheel drive

First, I think it highly unlikely that a 2011 Chevrolet Equinox would be due for spark plugs yet. They only have to be changed every 100,000 miles.

Second, you could spend the rest of your life trying to change the spark plug wires on that vehicle and never accomplish it. 2011 Chevrolet Equinox is not equipped with spark plug wires.

Then, if the spark plugs were somehow in need of replacement at this time, I highly recommend that you do not try this at home unless you have access to compressed air to clean the debris out of the spark plug tubes. Otherwise, severe engine damage can occur. (I have replaced many cylinder heads because of DIYers attempting to change their own spark plugs without the proper methods and equipment.)

With all that said, you must remove the ignition coils to get to the spark plugs.

Firing Order diagram for 2006 Ford Explorer

Hope this helps. The ignition coil:
  • changes low-voltage pulses from the PCM to high-voltage pulses.
  • fires 2 spark plugs simultaneously.
  • has 3 transformers.
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 1 and 5
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 2 and 6
    • One transformer fires the spark plugs for cylinders 3 and 4
Spark plug wires:
  • carry high-voltage pulses from the ignition coil to the spark plugs.
The spark plugs:
  • change high-voltage pulses to spark at the gap, which ignites the fuel and air mixture.
The firing order is 1-4-2-5-3-6.

Firing order diagram

Here is the firing order diagram for that vehicle, and if the ignition wires are not crossed then one of the spark plugs might have been damaged while installing it and the spark plug gap closed on one of the spark plugs, or one of the ignition wires (spark plug wires) has been damaged, and if those wires are over 5 years old then you should replace them. I hope that this helps you to solve your problem.

How to change te spark plugs

Hi: If this is your 1st time to Change your Spark Plugs, I recommend that you First of All Get the Correct Spark Plugs from your Auto Parts Store, Then Locate your Spark Plug Wires which run from your Distributor Cap to your Spark Plugs.If you have a V-8 There will be 8 if you Have a V-6 Then You'll have six Spark Plug Wires and 1- COIL Wire which is located in the Center of your Distributor Cap to your Coil. It is the Shortes Wire.I Recommend you ONLY do 1-Spark Plug at a Time, This will Prevent you from getting any of your wires Crossed which will Cause your Engine to Run Rough ,Back Fire or Not even Start,So just Pull off 1-Wire From Spark Plug and one Wire From Your Distributor Cap, You'll Need a Spark Plug Socket Probally 5/8th in. And a Ratchet and 2- Different Size Extensions to beable to reackh all your Spark PlugsNOTE!! Buy you a Spark Plug Wire Tool there not very Expensive but well worth it,This was you Can Pull the Wires with out Damaging Your Wires.And you Might Want to Put NEW Spark Plug Wires On as well, If So and I do Recommend This. And Again Just do 1- Wire and Plug At a Time So you'll know you Have Not Crossed any Wires. Hope This Helps You ,Please Respond by Voting on This Problem And How it Helped You. Thanks From WYOCWBOY

I have a 1997 E350 V10 Club wagon, 210,000 miles just change 10 motorcraft spark plugs then keep miss fire and shaking what create that problem?

Probably one of a few easy things. Did you replace one plug at a time? If not, a couple crossed wires will be it. Recheck wires. Make sure all wires are firmly on each plug., Verify the plugs installed are the correct plugs for your truck, AGSF22FSM with a gap of .044, or others brands a gap of .054. Platinum plugs are OEM. Did you check gaps on plugs you installed? Some get dropped by employees. Don't scrimp with cheap plugs!! If you still have original wires trash them and get a quality set!

Changed spark splugs on Ram 1500 and now engine is on

you might of crossed some wires, go to auto zone web site there you can see a diagram of the firing order, and check to see if wires are in the right place, if truck ran before you replaced the plugs then its got to be crossed wires, hope this is helpful.

Rough idle after plugs and wires change

first verify plug wires you might have one crossed. get a wiring diagram and check each wire from the cap to the plug , cyl 1 to cyl1 ect. it is very easy to cross one. make sure the wires are on the cap correctly, make sure the cap is on correctly. any part store will give you a tune up print out showing cyl location plug wire timing ect. then you want to check everything is plugged in from vacuum lines to tps to mass air to map sensors . the car ran fine before this so its simple just retrace and look closely i bet there is 2 plug wires crossed or something is unplugged. just do one wire at a time from the cap to cyl. make sure your going the right way on cap. just get the tune up print out and retrace each wire.

Tune up

change the plugs with the proper ones and make sure you check the plug gap. check and replace the air filter if its dirty, change the fuel filter and probably changing the plug wires wouldn`t hurt either.
