You unclip the caps about the spark plus and unscrew the covers. Then you remove them and replace them.

These Corolla's have irridium spark plugs designed (they say) for the life of the engine.

First you take off the black plastic cover on top the engine. You'll need a 10mm socket wrench. The plugs are buried deep in the engine. You'll need a special 5/8 inch plug wrench. It has to go 6 inches into the engine as well as the rubber boot inside the plug wrench will grab the loose plug and pull it out. You'll see 4 electrical connections on top of the engine. You'll need to remove the 10mm bolt securing the plastic piece that covers the plugs. Remove the bolt and the electrical connection. You'll need a screwdriver to slightly lift the clip on top of the electrical connection when sliding off the wires. Pull the big plastic piece out of the engine. At this point, use your new 5/8 spark plug tool to remove the plug. Please do yourself a favor and do this one plug at a time. When the new plug is in, replace the plastic boot, electrical connection and put the bolt back in then go to the next plug. Good luck!

A Toyota Allion has 4 spark plugs. These spark plugs are not hard to replace, and can be found in the engine, under the hood. After 2008 models, they are harder to replace.

I think 0.32 is the gap for corolla 1996 with a 1.6 engine, whereas 0.36 for 1.8 engine. However, it is easier to pick pregapped plugs such as NGK, Bosch, etc.

A 95 Toyota Corolla engine that loses power when idling can have a number of different things wrong with it including clogged injectors, a dirty fuel filter, or fouled spark plugs. Performing a standard tune-up will often resolve this issue.

Disconnect the battery, remove the engine cowl, remove the spark plugs cables, boots and plugs on the drivers side of the engine, replace with new spark plugs and attach the boot and cables. Do the same on the passenger side of the engine, replace the engine cowl, and connect the battery.

I just replaced the plugs on my 2005 tundra 4.7 v8. they are easy. their is so much room to work with. But do use the genuine Toyota spark plugs. "Do not use aftermarket plugs" i garauntee if you use the aftermarket plugs, you will wreak havoc. the heat range is too high on the aftermarket plugs, and therefore will burn holes in the ignition wires. check eBay for Toyota plugs or your local Toyota dealer.

When changing spark plugs it is important to know their location under the hood of the car. For a Toyota Rav4 the spark plugs are under the engine cover that has the car symbol on it.
