Pop off the blackcover over the engine and the spark plugs are located under it.

Take off the engine cover and remove the HT leads. You will then see the sparkplugs.

NGK makes fantastic plugs that produce excellent spark for your engine.

In general, glow plugs will be in just about the same place as sparkplugs in a gasoline engine. They stick down through the head.

You should always check the gap before putting sparkplugs in.There's no guarantee the manufacturer has it right for your specific make/brand/model/engine.See "Related Questions" below for more

You may use the specified spark plugs as stated by the spark plug manufacturer for your make model, engine and year

Follow the plug wires and find the plugs. Sometimes the plugs can be hard to get out.

Depending on the model some 1998 models have glow plugs like a diesel engine you may want to look into that before you waste time and money on spark plugs. On the 4 cy. engine, the spark plugs are accessible from the top of your engine. There is a face plate on the top of the engine held on with four screws, pull this plate off and you'll see the plugs. This confused me for a while too, as I was looking on the front and rear sides of the engine.

Absolutely. Worn plugs or carbon-fouled plugs can cause an engine to not start.

User Avatar

No, but burning oil will give you bad spark plugs.

User Avatar

Bad engine cushions can make the engine shake. bad spark plugs cause malfunction as the car starts running.

User Avatar

After you remove the covers, you next need to unbolt the coil packs to access the sparkplugs.

The Tennant model 8410 sweeper supplied with the 4 cylinder Ford engine uses the Motorcraft - AWSF-52-C sparkplugs.

The rear plugs have to be done from below. I took mine to the dealer and it was $150 to change the 3 plugs.

Worn spark plugs would cause mis-firing or non firing cylinders, both are no good for the engine, replacing the plugs may stop the knock (Could also be a different problem) But you should replace spark plugs as soon as possible.
