No, not unless your connect the plug wires wrong or one of the new spark plugs was bad.

There are pages and pages and items that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked for codes with a scan tool. After repair light can be shut off with scan tool.

A check engine light could mean many things on a 1988 Nissan Sentra. The light could mean anything to a fuel cap not being tight enough to bad spark plugs.

My service engine light came on at 95,000 miles. A simple tune-up, plugs, ect... and it ran like new again. You might find an auto parts store, like Auto Zone, that can check the engines computer for free.

Just as long as you get the proper length plugs for the engine you won't damage anything.

if it's like my 2002 it has a service engine code light on with a speed sensor code.it doesn't have a speed sensor, it means you need to check plugs/wires/or the electronic assy.itself.my problem was the plugs.

Go to Auto Zone and they will check you engine light for FREE... And go from there...

Most likely you need a tune-up. Spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap/distributor, or pack. Replace in that order.

Bad spark plugs can have a variety of effects on the performance of your car's engine. Signs of bad spark plugs include a rough idle, engine hesitation, hard starting, check engine light illuminated with a DTC P0300 and reduced engine power.

There is an engine misfire, probably spark plugs issue.

by going to an AutoZone store and having them reset it with their handheld computer system that plugs directly into the information port under the dashboard on the drivers side

A spark plug that is causing a misfire is one of many reasons for the check engine light to come on.

Change the fluids and filters. Inspect the spark plugs and wires. Clean the carburetor.

When the check engine light comes on it posts a code in the ECM. Your next step then is to read the code or codes and go from there.

The easiest way is to look for spark plugs. No plugs and it is a diesel, plugs and it is a petrol engine.

No, Glow Plugs are used to help start a cold engine. They can also be used for emisions (cold start up).

Refer to a service manual for complete pictures and torque specs. Overtighting the plugs can lead to a damaged engine
