with a spark plug socket Whoever wrote the above answer has never been under the hood of a late model Ford van. I have found it impossible to remove the coil packs from the engine without lowering the engine a few inches to gain clearance. It is a horrible design and the engineers over at ford should be shot for making the worst cars and trucks in the world. try to see if there is an engine cover under the center console. I didn't have to lower the engine... and you WILL need a spark plug socket... CLICK "View Discussion" Below, and helpful info may follow. -sbp
You need to remove the coil on plugs Each plug has it's own coil fitted you need to remove these to gain access to the spark plugs which are located under the coils.
There are six (6) ignition coils and six (6) spark plugs for a V8 3.5 liter engine.
on top of the spark plugs in the intake manifold.
They are under the coils in the top of the valve covers.
Have fun. You have to pull the fuel rail to get the direct igniton off then you can get at the plugs. Tip from pro: If your CAREFULL you can sneak the coils out with the fuel rail still on. Then you can get the plugs out.
if coils are taken off,then you can access the back plugs ok! coils are on a plate with 3 bolts holding it on to engine. this is the best way to get at back plugs on v6.

You need to remove the valve cover ((V8) motor) and remove the spark plug coils, then you can change the plugs.
No, as long as they were working good before you changed plugs and did not break them while changing the plugs they will work fine.
They are under the 6 ignition coils. There is a coil for each spark plug. You have to remove the coils, and then remove the plugs.
The coils die faster than the plugs! The RX8 Irridium plugs need to be changed at 25,000 miles per the maintenance manual. Replace the plugs and ignition coils when the car won't rev over 9,000 rpm smoothly.
You unplug, unbolt and remove the coils. The plugs are under the coils.

The plugs run down the center of the engine under the coils. You can see the coils after you remove the resonator (Thing that says Vortec 4200)
They are under the coils, which are located next to the injectors.

They are under the coils. Which are next to the fuel injectors.
if you have ignition coils you have to remove them and the intake tube (3000) then you can take the spark plugs out
remove the coil packs on top the engine with a small tork bit then change plugs
the plugs are under the ignition coils that line the top of both cam covers(on the left and right sides of the intake) remove the plugs that are on each coil. remove the 10mm bolts that hold them in. pull the coils out and remove the plugs with a 5/8 spark plug socket on an 8" extension
They are under the ignition coils. 5/8" socket and 8 " extension.
to change the spark plugs first take off the plastic cover on top of the motor, the spark plugs are on the center of motor you see two coils on top of the two center spark plugs and two spark plugs wires going to the out side spark plugs you pull the wires off and you need a long socket wrench or a spark plug socket with extension bar to take it off, also you need to pull the coils to replace the center spark plugs they are under the coils. NOTE. this is for a four cylinder engine. excuse my English B. Cerda.
They are under the coils.They are under the coils.
take the cover off and you'll see the 3 in front the back is different you have to tke the coils off snd the plugs are underneath
The coils are bolted to the side of the engine, The spark plugs are under the coils, NO PLUG WIRES. unbolt the coils and use A spark plug socket.
