I need details to know how to reach the plugs under the manifold

I have not tried anything yet. want to be sure I'm taking apart only what is necessary. I know the manifold needs to come off. are there gaskets to replace? do the bolts on manifold need to be torqued?

The manifold is bolted to the head. The plugs are screwed into the head. Remove the plug wire cover from top center of the manifold and you can see the plugs below

Is changing the head gasket in a 94 continental executive series the same as it is in most cars? Time intensive but relatively simple?


Sorta easy. This is what i did. took off all the brackets i could see connected to both heads. once the alternator and ps pump are out of your way but not disconnected sorta resting to the side, Make sure battery is not connected. lol once you have everything peeled off the block,. Then you can start with the (uim)upper intake manifold. 6 bolts 2 studded 4 aren't. and 2 bolts holding the throttle and transmission linkage. Pull the (UIM) and you will see the the intake manifold(IM) Theres like 12 bolts one is studded. take em off and carefully pry the (IM) off the Block. then take your valve cover bolts sud be 5 of them 3 are studded and lay near the plugs. Once your at this point you will see your 10 rods i think held down by about 5 bolts each side..now get a cardboard box and punch small holes in them and place the rods you remove in the same order you take them out so you can put them back in exactly. Now a lil tricky is the exhaust manifold get a pry bar ready take your plugs out and undo the exhaust manifold bolts out 6 of them. if you must. id spray liquid wrench on them a day or two in advance. I had no problem removing any my bolts no breaks. But i did take time to let LW to soak in over night. once bolts are out. you need to pry back the exhaust manifold a lil to remove the head on each end. thats If you dont decide to take the whole exhaust manifold out. Once heads are off and out. take em to your local machinist test them for cracks and warps. Then buy the headgasket kit and bolts runs about 150. you can not reuse the head bolts they are stretching type. some rtv and torquing . put her together and your good to go. Now thing i left out. Yes the full injectors are held in by a t10 torxs i think. pull em all out at once 6 of them.keep them attached and dont disconnect the gas line. put it to the side. then the coolant hose came off with no fluid in it. the hoses i took off the engine did not contain fluids. This is where i got my torque specs. http://www.allfordmustangs.com/Detailed/650.shtml#NOTE%202
Tools i used are mainly 13 mm short and deep socket 15 mm short and deep socket. and a 10 mm. and random other tools that help you reach and angle. Hope this helps. And good luck. Ps b4 you take her apart can you take images from under the hood. I do have a bracket which im trying to find out it went. for now its coat hanging ;)

I need to know how to change the spark plugs on a 2005 Chevy Impala with a 3.4 liter motor. I'm just not sure if there is any tricks I need to know. Do I take off the intake or just reach around the back...


no tricks but if you cant get your hand on the back of the engine to replace the plugs you may have to do it from under neath the car other than that you should be ok id suggest changing them out 1 at a time so as to keep your wires in the proper order. and when reinstalling hand start the plug first to insure that you dont cross thread the hole.

Spark plug location in a 2001 ford escape


Need to remove upper intake manifold to reach valve cover close to firewall.
1) The location of spark plugs 456 are under the plastic shield in front of the engine. It takes an 8mm socket to remove the three bolts holding the shield once the shield is removed you will see a coil for each spark plug. Use the 8mm socket and remove the coil and rubber boots. You will now see the spark plug (note there are not any spark plug wires).
2) The location of spark plugs 123 are located to the rear of the eng. You have to remove the air intake manifold in order to get to the spark plus. Remove the throttle wire then remove the other items on top of the intake manifold.

I keep getting a notice that the #2 and #4 cyclinder is misfiring. I went to change the plugs, but could not locate them from the top of the engine. Where are the plugs located at?

Remove the EGR valve mounts so you can slide the manifold out. Disconnet all vacuum lines from manifold and the air filter inlet closet to manifold. Just take a general look and ensure you have all wiring and tubing disconnected then slide the manifold off the eng and EGR valve. NOW MAKE SURE you cover all intake holes (leading into the engine) with paper towels to prevent droping screws etc into the engine. Then follow step 1 above

Sounds like your power plug has come desoldered. This is internal and will have to be taken apart to repair. If you are comfortable with taking it apart you can repair it yourself. If you have not ever soldered anything before or taken a laptop apart before you need to have someone else do it.
If you decide to do it yourself you will need the instruction manual to locate all of the screws. You will need a soldering iron and a camera along with a pencil and paper to draw a diagram and take notes. Laptops have a lot of fragile parts in them that will break. Do not do this if you do not know how. This is something that a qualified tech should do. You will see the plug and you will need to re-solder it back onto the board. One wrong move and you could damage the entire computer. If you try to do this yourself you are on your own and I am not responsible nor is anyone else.

Most of them have a break down on how to take it apart. The best thing that I can tell you is below. The only thing to do if you do not have the manual is to find a screw and take them out one by one. There should be a way to pop off the top part above the motherboard. You pry on both sides and it should pop up to get under it. The keyboard should pop up from the bottom. All laptops are not the same. Just be very careful, but if you are not sure that you can do it leave it alone. I could do it because I have done it before. Step by step directions without being there is very hard to do.
