Changing spark plugs is an important task. To do this, disconnect the battery and spark plug cables, and remove the old spark plugs. Next put in the new spark plugs, and reconnect the spark plug cables and then the battery.
Disconnect the battery, remove the spark plug cables, and spark plug boots. Remove the old spark plugs and replace with the new spark plugs. Replace the spark plug cables and connect the battery.
I changed the spark plugs on a 1998 Nissan maxima se with the instructions from the car manual. It tellsyou exactly how to change them and it has pictures.
There is a black cover on top of the cylinder head (the one with 20V written on it), the spark plugs are under it.
It has spark plugs. They are just hidden from view.
The spark plugs on a 1998 Mercedes Benz E320 are changed by removing the cover plate, disconnecting the plug wires, and unscrewing the spark plugs using a deep wall socket. New plugs are then put in place and torque down to specifications.
remove the coil packs on top the engine with a small tork bit then change plugs
That means its not the spark plugs........Oh ya check your gas gage...
You have to jack the car up and chang them from underneth.

I did a spark plug change on my 1998 VW beetle. It's very tedious and time consuming. My brother who is a mechanic helped me and he broke my spark plugs wires. It better to find a shop that you can trust to do the work. Make sure that you get the NGK spark plugs and I telling you know you might want to get spark plug wires. The run around 100.00 because of the metal tips. If you can help it don't go the dealer.
FOLLOW THE SPARK PLUG WIRES TO THE BLOCK. AND YOU WILL FIND YOUR PLUGS. A FEW OF THEM ARE HARD TO CHANGE BUT JUST PERSIST AND YOU'LL BE FINE
