You need to go to a car parts store, and get a repair manual for your car. They cost about $16.00 Or, go to a Public Library.

Also, 2001 Kia Spectras have 2 spark plugs and 2 gel packs. Most of the time when you replace one you replace the other.

How do I change spark plugs on a 97 Saturn slt


Well should be pretty basic youll need a 3/8 ratchet and an extension and a spark plug socket, if you cant see the plug wires and plugs you may need to take a cover off but they should be visible at the top of the engine, remove the plug wire and unscrew the spark plug, install new plug and replace the wire, do one at a time so you dont get the wires mixed up

Cant get spark plugs out of my 1996 Mazda Protege, I have a 5/8 socket and and extension that is long enough, but for some reason it wont grab the spark plug, is there a special wrentch for this model. My...


your spark plug wires have a rubber boot on the end of them and some times they come off and stay on the spark plug to where you can't get the socket on the plug. If you have oil on your plug wires than you need to replace the valve covers. You can use a long thin screw driver to get the boots off the plugs. It may take some time but they will come off.

I replaced the spark plugs and now it won't start


Did you gap the plugs and replace the spark plug wires exactly the way you removed them? Did you remove any wires from the distributor cap? Make sure Each spark plug wire snaps on, it cant simply float on top of the plug, the wire must be firmly seated on the plug tip.

They are still looking for a cause because it isnt misfiring right now or because they cant find the cause of the stored misfire codes ?
If it is misfiring right now and they cant figure it out then perhaps you should find new mechanics !
I have seen a lot of bad coils on the PT.
Misfire is usually caused by spark plug wires first, spark plugs 2nd, and coil third.
If it isnt misfiring now, spray down the wires with water. If it misfires after that replace the spark plug wires and spark plugs and try again.
If it still misfires then the problem will likely be the coil.
