View Full Version : spark plug help, ASAP!

11-07-2009, 02:26 PM
so i changed all my spark plugs this morning and when i got done the engine is misfiring horribly,
i have no clue what i did wrong,
i changed one at a time,
all the wires are back on
theyre all gapped correctly

someone please give me some advice

is it possible that i could have broken one of the wires? or the connector?

are your wires in good shape? is it possibly the coils?

make sure you got all the wire back in there original spot maybe you got one in the wrong everytime i changed mine that was the case lol

Colin...check the back wire on the passenger side bro.... thats usually a common wire that never gets fully clipped in... it may feel like it is...but usually its not.... if that doesn't solve it...then your probably looking at a break in the wire depending on how old the wires are......................

also, make sure they are routed correctly to your coil packs.

tug gently on each wire...i had a wire come completely loose inside the boot not long ago, and ran horribly with no visual indication of anything being wrong.

That, and check your plug gaps...those can screw some things up

Im with either wires routed wrong, or pulling on them made a couple go bad. Dont be to quick to say you already double checked the routing, ive seen it missed being check 4 or 5 times. Also might check or the plugs themself having a crack. the ceramic is known for cracking sometimes.
