Good morning, you will find the plugs in same position as my 2001 model. Firstly you will have to undo the battery then remove the plastic hood on top of the motor (only put there to make motor look flashy, once removed you will see four portholes leading down into the spark plug chambers, you will need a long extension fitted to your socket set, undo the plugs, and you may then need a spring claw reaching device. Just ensure you put the correct plugs in top plastic cover and re-join cables to the battery. hope this helps, Iain.
How do you install spark plugs on a 96 nissan maxima?
with a socket, swivel, extension, and ratchet.
A 96 maxima does not have "a distributor" it has 6 individual distributors or coil packs. One for each cylinder/spark plug. They are on the top side of the spark plugs.
if you can get it on a hoist...its so much easier and quicker from below...trust me
The spark plugs in this car are on the side of the engine. They are seen after the engine cover is removed.
you dont rotate it you have to pull the altnator off to change them
A 6-cylinder has SIX and a 4-cylinder has FOUR spark plugs.... Am I missing something here?
The gap for spark plugs in a 96 GMC sierra is .60
There are seven spark plugs on a '96 Tercel. This model has them mounted under the rear passenger seat next to the distributor.
You can change the fuel filter and that might do it. If it doesn't it can get quite complicated. Take it to a good mechanic. Also, try replacing or cleaning the spark plugs, distributor cap, and wires attached to the spark plugs. I had the same problem with my Sephia. A little tune-up should fix it nicely.
the easiest way to change the spark plugs on either side of hte engine is to either put it up on a car lift or pull it up onto some ramps but i recommend using a lift
Motorcraft is best for Ford
Most likely it needs new spark-plugs.
On a 1996 Ford Crown Victoria , which has the 4.6 liter Single Over Head Cam V8 engine from the factory ( there are 8 spark plugs )
I just put Denso Iridium spark plugs in mine (part #IK16): http://www.densoiridium.com/index.php But these are by no means the only kind of spark plugs you can use. Before these I had SplitFire Platinum.
Check the Vehicle Emissions Control Information ( VECI ) decal located in the front of your engine compartment ( it will show the type of spark plugs to use and the spark plug gap )
The exat location of the spark plugs depends on whether you have a 3.0 DOHC 24 valve engine or a 3.0 OHV 12 valve engine. Follow the spark plug wires, which are the large grey colored electrical wires you see near the top of the engine. They will lead you right to the spark plugs.
The 1996 Ford Ranger 2.3 L engine has Fords Twin Plug ignition system , so it has ( 8 spark plugs )
Cut them off- after 10 years it's time to replace
