Toyota Highlander_ How to change plugs


The Toyota Highlander is available in three different engine sizes: 2.4, 3.0 and 3.3 liter. The basic technique for replacing spark plugs is used for both engine sizes, but depending on the engine size you need to remove different parts from the Toyota Highlander to gain access to the spark plugs.
  1. 1 Pull the hood release and raise the hood on the Highlander. Allow the engine plenty of time to cool.
  2. 2 Remove some components to reach the spark plugs. On a 3.3 liter engine, unscrew and remove the V-bank cover and intake air tank. On a 2.4 and 3.0 liter engine, remove the number one engine cover.
  3. 3 Locate the ignition coils and spark plug wires that connect directly to the spark plugs or directly to the engine in the Toyota Highlander. In 2001 and 2002 models, theses are on the front and back of the engine. On models made after 2002, the spark plugs are along the sides. Grab the ignition coils or spark plug wires by the thick plastic piece at the end of the wire. Squeeze the end and turn it to release it from the spark plug. Pull back to remove the plug from the engine.
  4. 4 Slide the spark plug socket over the spark plug. The most common size of spark plug socket used on a Toyota Highlander is 16mm. Turn the socket to the left to unscrew and remove the spark plug from the cylinder well.
  5. 5 Apply a thin coat of anti-seize compound to the spark plug thread and into the wire boot to reduce the chance of sticking.
  6. 6 Insert the spark plug into the well and manually turn the plug into place. If you cannot reach the plug well manually, insert the plug into the socket and extension and use the extension to turn the plug into place. Do not use a socket wrench or flexible extension for this process because their force damages the spark plug.
  7. 7 Connect the ignition coil or spark plug wire to the spark plug. Turn to lock it into place.
  8. 8 Continue this process for the rest of the spark plugs. Replace any removed items onto the engine and lower the hood.

I have a TB250 self propelled mower it won't start at all will not turn over how do I fix the problem?


Wen you say that it will not turn over are you saying it is seized?? or will it turn over but not start. If it turns over check to see if you have spark at the plug by taking it out and with it connected to the plug wire and with the spark plug touching and unpainted part of the engine have some one turn it over and see it there is spark at the plug. If there is not spark you have a coil or wire or plug problem OR the shutoff switch is killing the ignition. Check that first. If you have spark. Drizzle a small amount of gas into the spark plug hole, quickly re install the plug and wire and turn it over and it should start which will indicate that the engine has compression as well as spark and therefore it is a fuel problem Trace throughout the fuel tank to the engine and see why you are getting fuel to the engine. The problem could be in the carburetor and to advise at all on that would need to know what engine and carburetor type you have and how old the machine may be. You can check for compression by taking the spark plug out and holding a finger over the plug hole and turning the engine over and if there is compression it will blow your finger off of the plug hole. If you have no compression you have major repair problem on your hands.

Why my 1996 cadillac fleetwood brougham not getting any fire to the engine?


Your question needs some additional details. Are you sure that it is not getting fire to the cylinders or are you just using the term "not getting fire" because you are not getting any response from the engine when trying to start the car? Does the engine turn over? I would assume that it probably does based on your question. If your engine turns over then the first diagnostic step to see if you are getting "fire" (spark) to the cylinders is:
- Remove a spark plug wire and remove the corresponding spark plug.
- Put the spark plug wire back on the spark plug.
- Now hold the spark plug thread against a metal part of the engine
- You may want to use rubber gripped pliers to hold the spark plug
- Have someone turn over the engine.
- Watch the end of the plug to see if you are getting a spark jumping the gap to the ground electrode (little metal arm suspended in the air at the end of the spark plug).
- If you are getting spark then you are getting fire and your issue is most likely fuel related or timing (spark synchronization to the cylinder cycle).
- If you are not getting spark, then you have electronic/electrical issues

Need to replace sparkplugs on 2002 ford escape


well replace spark plugs is not a hard job,when replacing spark plugs, good time to replace plug wires also.you need to replace one spark plug at a time so you wont mix up firing order. you need a spark socket, torque wrench, 3/8 ratchet wrench, 3/8 short and long extensions,you need a spark plug gap gauge.spark plug gap for 2.0 engine 0.051 the 3.0 engine spark plug gap is 0.052 - 0.056. just follow spark plug wires they will lead you to the spark plugs.warning wait until engine cool down first because removing spark plugs from hot engine could damaged the aluminum heads,use compressed to blow away debris before removing spark plugs keep debris falling into the cylinders.wear safety glasses if you use compress air and use small amount anti seize compound to the spark plug threads.good idea slip a short length rubber hose over the end of spark plug to use as a tool thread it into place.reason i use piece vacuum hose it will grip the spark plug enough to turn it, but will start to slip if the plug begin to cross thread.when installing spark plug, it should turn at least few times if spark plug start tighten before 1/4 turn thread cross threading need to back off start over dont keep turning you will stripped spark plugs threads in the head also damage spark plug threads, so be careful, good luck with job.

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.

Engine is not running


Looks like u better find a ride to work. U need spark and gas for the car to run. When u turn the key, does the engine turn over? If it does, u should check to see if there is spark at the plugs.
