Get a diagram of the ignition wires for your year & engine (you didn't say). If what you say above is true you have a different engine for the guide you're using or the wiring WAS correct before you changed it.

Spark plugs and wires for tune ups.

Most cars now days have plugs that last 100,000 miles however they do need to be changed sooner due to the electrode stretching and the gap increasing thus causing a miss or poor performance, Spark plug manufactures sell all types of replacement plugs this is to save you money by telling you what I recommend on plugs.There are many plugs on the market called split fire plugs and their prices range from $4.00 each up to $14.00 each however these plugs do no better than the recommended plugs from the manufacture, with one exception Platinum plugs last longer. However never buy the expensive plugs unless you are burning oil and if you live in a state that you have to have emmison tag to get a new tag for your plates your wasting your time and money to install these expensive plugs. So always buy the plugs from the manufacture and do not buy after market plugs. Also when changing Plugs change the wires or you will damage the plug wires when you change the spark plugs. So replace the wires. Do to the high voltage on the newer cars use dielectric grease on each end of the new wire coat the inners boot of the plug wire so that there is no voltage leak between the wire and engine block, a dirty plug will cause leakage and make the car run rough and miss and could damage the engine. Put the dielectric grease on both ends and make sure it does not touch the tip of the plug or the tip of the coil it is connected to.

I have to keep changing my spark plugs and wires and coil packet in my 2001 ford windstar. What could be causing that?

Hi Cathy,your cat could be partially clogged and causing your internal engine to run hot and causing this,happen to me,but it caused my head gasket to blow,had to take cat off to see,the inside of cat came apart and partially blocked the outlet.I put a new head gasket on and didn't put another cat on,don't have a smog test in my state.If it is not your cat,then it may be your piston rings which will let oil get to your plugs.What are your plugs looking like Cathy?

I have a 2001 Suzuki Grand Vitara i just replaced valve cover gaskets and spark plugs now the vehicle does'nt start it cranks but does'nt it has fuel but its nnot

no engine stated, and is an engine question.
G16,J20, or H25?
1.6l, 2.0L or v6 ?
my guess, is you removed spark plug wires and put them back out of order, never do that, always change wires 1 by 1.
or the firing order will be wrong, (cops excepted, coil over plug)

how many coil packs do you have.
we cant guess any of that.

I changed the belts on my 97 intrepid 3/3 ltr a couple weeks ago and it stated running rough and misfiring. Changed the plugs, wires and coil pack and it is now misfiring and stalling?

changing belts will not cause this problem.when changing the plugs did you check the plug gap or just assume the plugs were gapped properly.this could be one problem.did you change the wires one at a time or did you pull off multiple wires and change them,this could be another problem(wires not in proper location).you could have an intake gasket that is bad causing a vacume leak,which can cause miss could be a fuel injector problem(either electrical or fuel).is the check engine light on,this is a starting place have the code pulled.these i would check out.

Repaced rotor cap plugs wires, ran fine. tell

First thing I would do is change your fuel filter. Check all vacuum lines and all your wire connections. Also check fuel pump relay to see if it is faulty or if there is shorted wires under the relay or fuse blocks.

I have a 2001 Ford Windstar w/3.8 V-6. The codes state that #5 cyl has a misfire. I just changed the plugs, put new plug wires on & installed 4 new O2 senors. What else should I be looking for?

Double check the plug wires, if the boot to the plug wire was not installed with spark plug boot lube. It may have pulled away from the plug just enough to make it a bad connection. Go back and push on the plug wire boot to the spark plug and make sure the wires are routed properly and not touching anything other then the separator that hold the wires in place. The other thing would be a dirty injector ir an bad wire to the injector. Start with te plug boots and routing. Good luck friend, I have a Montana and same thing here, take me longer to ensure that all the plug wires are set then to replace the plugs.

95 camaro 3.4 liter no spark in cylinder 6 wire

Check distributer cap, rotor, and specially near wire number 6. remove the cap and visually inspect looking for signs of burns or small craks. check the top of the cap to see if the coil wire has signs of contact. On the rotor, check the metal piece for any signs of burning. Hopefully this will help. Did you check the gap on sparkplug six ?
