Hi,

Believe it or not there is actually an easy wato to get to those back plugs.

You need a Taylor Cable 43392 Spark Plug Boot Removal Tool. Try eBay, AutoZone or Amazon. After you get the boot off, use an ordinary spark plug socket and ratchet. Without the Removal Tool, you'll wind up in a mental institution.

GM used to sell a similar tool but since Oldsmobile has passed on to the great beyond, you'll have to use an alternative.

All the best

Which cylinder is cylinder 4 in 2008 jeep cherokee 3.7L


# 4 cylinder is the middle cylinder on the right hand bank, as seen from the drivers seat. Left bank has 1, 3 and 5 (from front to back) and right bank 2, 4 and 6.I would first swap the coil with an other cylinder and see if the fault follows. If it does, then you know that the problem must be with the coil. If it doesn´t, then obviously it is not the coil. You will need then find out if there is spark and fuel. You could have a sticking valve due to carbon buildup on the valve stem. A seafoam treadment could help in that case.

I own a 2002 mustang with v 6 eng.service eng light came on. pep boys retreived fault code that reads p0304.eng has new plugs and wires


P0304: Cylinder Misfire Detected (#4)

-Last number corresponds to which cylinder is misfiring.


Could be a faulty spark plug or wire. Try changing the spark plug from the 4 Cylinder to another and see what happens; If the different cylinder misfires, then it is the spark plug. If not, it could be the wires on cylinder 4.

My check engine light is on and the code is reading p0304 what could be the problem


You have a Misfire at Cylinder #4 meaning:
Dirty, fouled or malfunction Spark Plug at #4 Cylinder. Remove the Spark Plug and check the igntion (spark end).
Ignition (Spark Plug) Wire malfunction for #4 Cylinder.
Misfire from the Coil/Distributor at the #4 connection from Cylinder #4.
Get a Spark Plug/Wire/Coil/Distributor tester and check the Spark Plug, Wire and Coil.
I always recommend changing everything in sets meaning: Change all Spark Plugs and Wires.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Change sparks plugs on 06 hyundai sonata v6


You didn't specify whether you have the (4) cylinder or the (6) cylinder engine..... I have a 2004 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L 4 cylinder and I just changed the spark plugs in it. I believe that the 2005 2.4L engine is the same. To locate and change the (4) spark plugs on a 2004 Hyundai 2.4L 4 cylinder engine: Remove the (4) 12mm bolts from the decorative plastic engine cover. Remove plastic cover from engine and place it off to the side out of your way. Standing in front of the car, the (4) spark plugs are located laterally (left to right) in the recessed area underneath where the plastic engine cover was removed. Note: This engine has (2) coils....They are located above spark plugs number (2) and (3) from left to right. Starting with the fist spark plug on the left: Remove the spark plug cable by pulling straight up on the insulated connector. Using a spark plug socket, remove the old spark plug and install a new one in it's place. To access the second spark plug from the left, remove the electrical connector and the spark plug cable wire from coil number (1) and then remove the (2) 12mm bolts that secure the coil to the engine. Spark plug number (2) is located directly under the coil. Lift the coil straight up removing the insulated connector from spark plug number (2). Using a spark plug socket, remove old spark and install a new one in it's place. Repeat same procedures for spark plugs number (3) and (4). Note: If you have the (6) cylinder engine, the front (3) sparks pluge are readilly accessible but in order to access the (3) rear spark plugs, you will have to remove the intake manifold

Changing spark plugs


look under hood..you will see wires coming from distributor cap on top into your motor..if its an 8 cylinder there will be 4 in the back and 4 in the front.6 cylinder-3 in front 3 in back.get a 5/16 spark plug wrench and socket.you will need extension to reach back ones.if you bought new wires from parts store it will be even easier to find where plugs are located because you can compare the ones you bought and easier find the wires under the hood.the wire gets fatter as it goes into the motor.grab the fat part firmly and pull it off.boom theres your spark plugs.use your spark plug socket(5/16) with extension/ratchet and turn the plug until it comes out.do not break the plug or it will not come out.when you put a new one in screw it hand tight then 1 crank tight with the ratchet.when you change your wires do them one at a time as to avoid switching the wires up.on top of the distributor cap(where the wires lead to) there will be numbers as to what wire is for what cylinder...change plugs/wires 1 at a time dont take off more than 1 wire at a time!hope this helped!
