Easiest way to remove plug wires is to turn back and forth to release rubber from spark plug. Take a screwdriver ,and gently pry to the end of the wire to releaseYou can also use plyers to turn and release the wire. If all else fails ,and you plan to replace the spark plugs, you can always break the spark plug off and still be able to remove the plugs

97 acura 2.2 cl engine light p0302 code


A P0302 is indicating that cylinder # 2 is misfiring...Cylinder # 2 is the second plug counting from the front to rear of engine...Main causes for misfire are: defective spark plug, spark plug wire...When was last time plugs were changed? if it has been awhile I would suggest changing them...Also the spark plug wires should be replaced...Changing one plug and/or one wire isn't a good idea; change them all...Plugs cost two or three dollars apiece and a set of wires around $15...Standard motor products wire set # 4717...Spark plugs; Bosch platinum gaped at .044

Changing spark plugs in any car


When changing spark plugs I find it best to remove only one wire at a time. I remove the wire, change the plug, measure the old wire against the new wires, and replace the wire before moving to the next wire and plug. This way I do not have to know the firing order for the plugs.
Don't for get to check the plug gap.

99 chev. tahoe changed plugs and now im not getting fire to the number 1 plug whats wrong


Loretta,, Occasionally, a spark plug is "bad" right out of the box. But a single new plug and install it in the #1 cylinder. Also, on a 15 year old vehicle, it is likely that the spark plug wire wa damaged removing it in order to replace the plug. Good Luck.

How do I change plugs and wires on a 1997 v-6 CAMARO?


you can change each plug and wire one at a time so you don`t mix up the wire order. twist and pull the plug wire off the plug then using a 5/8" spark plug socket with an extension and ratchet and remove the plug. take new plug and gap the plug to proper gap which will be .045" and install into engine. then remove the plug wire from any holding brackets and the distributor cap and match the wire length with a new wire and install the same way. then proceed to the next one.

Change Plugs and wiring on 2002 Buick Park Avenue?


not sure what you want to know. disconnect the plug wire from the plug one at a time then remove the plug with a 5/8 plug socket, reattach wire then repeat for other cylinders. or you can change the plug wire when you change each plug one at a time so you won`t get the wires crossed.

Have 1994 toy. truck with v6, when choke goes off the engine misses


Hey 94 TOY...

When did the problem start? Before you changed the wires and plugs? Or did it start, AFTER you changed the wires and plugs? Did the problem remain the same BEFORE & AFTER you made the changes?

1 - If the TOY ran fair to Okay before you did the work, then you may have done something wrong when you made the cahages. Check for correct plugs and firing order. Check for cross wiring. With engine runing pull one plug wire off each plug one at a time. Each pulled plug wire will slow down the engine. When you pull a plug wire that doesn't react and does not make any change ON or OFF that cylinder Plug.
Then that cylinder is not firing.

2 - Check for spark at that wire. If you do-not have Spark there, But the other wires do... the wire going to that cylinder is BAD.

3 - If you have the correct firing order and spark at all cylinders then the cylinder that did-not change the speed of engine has a compresstion problem. Bad valves, Piston or rings are bad... Major engine work and Major repair bill for the repair job.... GOOD LUCK....

When should you change spark plug wires as well as spark plugs


There is one sure fire way to know if your plug wires are in need of changing. Wait until it is dark outside and crank your car, pop the hood and if the plug wires are bad, you will see them arcing. What that term means is that you will see sparks coming from the plug wires on to the engine itself. When you change the plug wires out, do not skimp and go for the cheap ones, they break down under heat and will not be as conductive as they should be, spend a few more dollars and get the good ones, it will be worth it in the end. If you are changing out the plug wires, you should change out the plugs as well, and you should be good for at least 70k to 100k miles.

I have a 1998 VW jetta I'm trying to change the spark plugs. I know the wiring order and the firing order. I just don't know how to tell if the engine is in the right position to be lined up with the...


If your trying to change spark plugs remove one wire from a plug, replace that plug, reinstall the wire onto that plug and move on to the next plug. You don;t need to worry about firing order unless you plan on changing the wires or the cap and rotor. Even if you where to change the wires if you did them one at a time than the new ones would be in the exact same place as the old ones and there is nothing to worry about,

Changing sparkplugs and wires


Change the plugs and wires one at a time as to not get confused. Purchase a quality set of custom plug wires that will fit perfectly. Put anti-sieze on the plug threads. Put some dielectric grease on the plug connector before snapping the plug wire in place. Route the plug wires exactly as they were originally routed.
