    Also, keep in mind using only the recommend NGK or Denso plugs that are listed in your owner's manual. The recommended plugs have a double ground electrode. I would stick with those plugs.

    If you are going to do this change yourself, I recommend getting a long 3/8 inch drive spark plug socket with an attached extension on it. By that, I mean one that has the 5/8 inch spark plug socket permanently attached to the extension. Many auto parts stores now carry this tool. If you use the conventional type of 5/8 spark plug socket, once you tighten down the plug in the head, the socket usually sticks on the plug when you pull the extension out. That socket can be a real PITA to remove from the spark plug way down in the spark plug well. Also, be sure to purchase some antiseize compound and apply some to the threads of the plugs before you install them in the head. This is very important. You want to be able to remove them from the head when the time comes.

    Good luck.

4.6L or 5.4L?
Neither of these engines has a timing belt, but they do have a timing chain which rarely require replacement.

This a fairly involved job and requires access to a good amount of hand tools and some specialized tools if it's the 5.4L. I wouldn't attempt this job on your own without a good Chiltons manual which can be ordered from Amazon.com for a decent price. It will be a lot easier to reference that, than trying to get instructions from a website.

A freind of mine try to change the spark plugs , and broke of the plugs in the head, how do you get them out?


have fun with that, i did on my dad's 04 f150 the problem is, the tips of the spark plugs are down in the combustion chamber, and gets seised up by carbon (bad design), first you gotta order a special tool from Ford, its basically a tap and dye set that you have to get them out with, but first let the engine get cold, then take some lubricant and spray in there, and let it sit for about 20 minutes. Take your socket and slowly screw it in and out about a 1/8 of a turn. do this several times, but they will probably break anyway. You will have to use the special too to drive into the part of the spark plug that's left in the head, then change the tool and drive it out. I highly suggest you use anti-sese when you put the new ones in. I think the tool is called a Ford Tri valve spark plug remover, if you have access to AllDataPro, its on a TSB

No special tools, however the hard part will be getting the plug wires off without pulling the inner contact apart. Rotate the boots on the plugs before trying to remove the wires.

How do I change the spark plugs on a 2000 Beetle.


No special tools required. Spark plugs or glow plugs mount down into the engine from the top. Last resort - follow the wires. Be careful when changong the plugs such that you don't break any of the wires. The wires are somewhat expensive, and break easily.
