Your spark plugs should be in either one of 2 places.
1 while you are standing in front of the car look down there should be some what looks like black caps with thick wires coming from them. in this position you plugs will be torward the bottom of your engine.
2.look to the right or left of the engine. you should see the same thing black caps with wires coming out of them. those are you plugs. now all you have to do is take one wire off at a time. to do that grasp the lower part of the wire should be the black cap do not pull on the wire it's self you might break the wire. from there you should be able to see the top of the plug.

Where is the ignition coil located


Depending on the type of engine you have, the coil will be located near the spark plugs. If you have spark plug wires, it's at the oppisite end from the spark plugs. Some engines have coil packs. One coil for every one or two spark plugs. If you have a four cylinder they should look like this.

Where are the spark plugs located on a 2000 Mercury grand Marquis?


There are eight COPs (coil-on-plugs) to remove. Using a 7mm or 9/32" socket, remove each bolt securing each COP to the intake manifold on top of the engine. Remove all eight COPs, and the spark plugs are underneath. When replacing the spark plugs, use only the proper Ford/Motorcraft plugs, even if they cost twice as much as the aftermarket ones. You will avoid further headaches this way. Hope this helps.

Cant find the spark plugs


Here's a link that will help you. I've included the info that you need to locate the plugs below. Good luck!

http://www.ehow.com/how_4484637_replace-spark-plugs-oldsmobile-alero.html

To gain access to the spark plugs and spark plug wires do the following. In a 2.4 liter engine, remove the ignition coil and module assembly from the top of the engine to gain access. In this Alero model's engine, the spark plugs run down the center of the engine. In a 3.1 liter engine, remove the air cleaner to gain access. The spark plugs are located next to the engine oil reservoir. For a 3.4 liter engine, remove the windshield wiper module cover and rotate the engine for service access. For a 2.2 liter engine, the spark plug wires are located across the top of the engine and require no components to be removed for access to the spark plugs.

Location of spark plugs


The spark plugs are located in the front upper half of the motor (4 of them). Each spark plug has a spark plug wire connected to it. The spark plug wires run from the drivers side of the engine to the spark plug so just follow the wires to each of the spark plug locations.

Where the spark plugs are locate in 2003 dodge stratus


What motor? Chances are you have the quad 4 and the plugs are located under thevalve cover. SHould see 4 black wires that go to the top of the motor (to plug boots) the spark plugs ae about 4 inches down. You will need a spark plug socket (i believe 5/8) and 10"extension. If you are not familar with how to remove the plugs I would recommend letting someons else do it. IF you break one of the plugs your really gonna kick yourself in the but. Good luck

Cant find the spark plug location on 2002 4cyl tacoma


Locate the spark plug cover on the engine.On some Toyota Tacoma engines, the cover is across the top of the engine. On others, it is along the side 4 cyl. Remove the cover to reveal the ignition coils and spark plugs wires. The spark plug wires are plugged directly into the engine and the ignition coils are in the tip of the spark plug wire.
Remove the coil and wire from the spark plug. Twist and pull the plug out of the engine. Remove the spark plug from the cylinder well with a socket extender and socket wrench. Turn the wrench to the left to unscrew the spark plug from the engine.

Discard the old spark plug and apply a coat of anti-seize compound to the threads of the new spark plug.

Insert the new spark plug into the socket. Use the socket and extension to screw the spark plug into place.

Return the ignition coils and spark plug wires to the engine and turn it to lock the plug in place. Repeat the entire the process with the remaining spark plugs.

Replace the spark plug cover when all of the spark plugs are replaced.

Good luck and hope this helps and The spark plug tension may range between 11 and 15 foot pounds, depending on the size of the spark plug. The correct tension is indicated on the spark plug's packaging.

How do can I change spark plugs?


hi hillardgarne,

1. Purchase a wrench for spark plugs
2. pull the tension wires from engine.
3. insert the wrench until wrench gets a grip of spark plug
4. turn until plugs are completely loose
5. do this for the rest of the plugs
6. replace old with new plugs.
7. do the same thing but now, you tighten the plug (like screws)
8. return the tension wires

important:

* remember to know exactly the correct location of each tension wires, return to it's exact location (length of wires will help)
* as you take out old plugs, cover the hole where plugs are placed for it not to get dirty.
* in replacing, make sure that plugs are tightly inserted (not to tight though)

hope it helps.
