the spark plugs on a 106 should be in the top of the engine on earlyer models you should see 4 leads conected to them. a later model may not have ignition leads but a sort of ignition pack on top of the engine. the plugs would be under this.
You start by taking the engine cover off. You can accomplish by removing quarter sized plugs in the cover on top of the engine. Removing the plugs will provide access to screws to remove the cover. After removing the cover, you have to remove the coil packs which slide down on top of each spark plug. You should see 'posts' with 10mm nuts which need to be removed. Pull each coil pack out after removing the nuts, and the spark plugs should be accessible.
With a socket for removing plugs. The wires should just slip off and need to be replaced with the exact same length.
Plug leads should last 3 or 4 times as long as plugs. They do not always abide by the rules, however. If you are running wonky and new plugs doesn't fix it, try new leads, it often works. If it does, put the old plugs back in with the new leads. I bet you will have a spare set of fresh plugs for another day.
You shouldn't have to clean them, and if you go to the trouble of removing them, you should replace them, they are very inexpensive.
Replace plugs and filters, change fluids, replace serpentine belt. Plugs are replaced by removing fuel rails, removing coil packs over plugs, then changing plugs.
The wires running from the coil to the spark plugs are the leads.
as you look at the engine they are on the right hand side with the heavy leads going to them. there should be four and the leads should come out in roughly a 45 deg angle to the engine
Obviously 3 in front the rear plugs can be accessed only after removing the plastic engine cover and partially or fully removing the intake manifold!
It is likely that it is not firing on all spark plugs, you should try checking spark plugs and timing, there could also be a problem with the distributor cap or spark plug leads themselves may be worn. Try chacking backwards from the spark plugs.
The best bet for removing double flared plugs, or getting them in for that matter, is to take a very hot shower for about 30 minutes to get your skin to have more "stretch". After the shower, they should pop right in. Just remember that you should take out flared plugs EVERY DAY to clean them and so that they won't get stuck in your lobes to begin with.
Check your spark plugs and leads.
They are attached to the end of the HT leads.
None. Champion plugs should NEVER be used in a GTI. They will carbon up your cap and rotor and cause nothing but problems. You should only run Bosch or NGK copper plugs.
No, the plugs can be accessed from underneath or by removing the upper intake.
At minimum, removing the engine mounts is required to access the freeze plugs.
Remove the cowling on top of the engine block to expose the head, you should be able to see and follow the HT leads.
If it is the V6, the plugs are located 3 in the front and 3 in the back. The 3 in front are accessible by removing the plastic cover of the engine. The 3 in back need access by removing the header.
You have to remove the drivers seat, fold back the carpet and you'll expose an engine cover... Undo all the bolts and lift the cover off and you'll see the top of the engine... Remove (Black) cover over the rocker cover to expose the leads, remove the high tension leads and then remove the plugs. You WILL need an extension bar with your spark plug socket as they are fairly deep into the rocker cover It can also be done by simply driving it up on ramps & removing plugs from under the drivers side of car.
Remove the plastic cover that is to the oil filler cap, it will a torx bit. Be careful when removing the Spark plug wires the coils are connected to them and they arre bolted down. You will need a 8" extension to get the plugs out, I think you will need a 5/8 spark plug socket. Remove old plugs. gap new plugs and install in reverse as removing them.
You have not turned it on Check power plugs, power leads switches etc
I would check coil, leads, and plugs.
to carry the electricity from the coil pack to the spark plugs
If you are talking about the v8, remove the cowling between the front seats, you will see the wire leads to the spark plugs. Vacumn the recessed area where the plugs are to prevent dirt falling in the cylinders. On the left side you need to remove a protective sheild. It has two bolts screwed to the floor. You should be able to reach all the plugs now. LIONHEART
