No you do not need to replace any plugs at all when replacing wires.
Pull the spark plug wires off the spark plugs. Remove the spark plugs with a spark plug socket. Install the new spark plugs and put the spark plug wires back on. I recomend replacing the spark plug wires as well. If replacing them, just remember that the new wires are hooked up the same ways that the old ones came off.
Replacing Spark Plug High Voltage WiresNO, not necessarily. Spark plug wires only need to be replaced maybe once or twice in the life of a vehicle, IF THEY HAVE NOT BEEN PHYSICALLY DAMAGED OR ABUSED.Therefore, it is normally not necessary to replace the plug wires when replacing the plugs.
When replacing spark plug wires.
No, not unless your connect the plug wires wrong or one of the new spark plugs was bad.
wires are worn and need replacing
either wrong spark plugs or sparkplug gap or you have to plug wires on wrong plugs
If you haven't already,Try replacing the plug wires and spark plugs and regap the plugs to factory spec.
One of the spark plug wires may not be installed properly causing a misfire.
Could be in need of a tune up. Start with replacing the spark plugs and spark plug wires.
The spark plugs are on the front and back of a V6 (back ones are tough to get to) L4 right in front. Turn the engine off and take off the spark wires unscrew the plugs
Spark plug wires. spark plugs or fuel filter. Check and rpplace them in that order. Usually only spark plug wires need replacing.
No, they don't necessarily have to be replaced. However it is usually a good idea to replace the wires along with the spark plugs. As the wires age and go through heating cooling cycles they get stiff and brittle. As you flex the wires to remove them from the spark plugs the inner conductor often breaks causing a misfire. Also when you pull the spark plug boots off of the spark plugs the connector often can break loose and stay on the spark plug, thus ruining the wire.
On older cars it would be replacing, PCV valve, spark plugs, plug wires, rotor, condenser, and possibly distributor cap. On newer cars it usually means replacing plugs & plug wires.
A local garage is charging me $278-ish for plugs and wires on a 2007 Chevy Equinox today.
It could be caused by not getting the spark plug boot on quite right after replacing the plug wires.
IF IT IS A 4 CYL YOU PROBABLY HAVE A BAD CRANK SENSOR OR IGNITION MODULE.
try replacing your distributor, distributor cap, rotor, and maybe the spark plug wires.
Start by replacing all the spark plugs. If that does not solve the problem then replace the spark plug wires.
removed plug wire, remove spark plug, gap new plug to spec. and reinstall. Repeat for every other cylinder. Would recommend replacing plug wires, cap and rotor when replacing spark plugs.
coil pack bad, or wires could be faulty/old should replace them, or the sparkplug itself could be bad try replacing plugs & wires and start from there
Try replacing the plugs and wires
replacing coil does not work for long
I would start with replacing the spark plug wires and spark plugs (if you did not do that for a while). If does not help check the coils or distributor depending on what you have.
ummm follow the spark plug wires from the three little black boxes on the back/top of the intake to the block u will find three plugs in the front and three in the back
