On the Ford Triton engines a separate coil is used for each cylinder. The coils are mounted over the top of the spark plugs. To access the spark plugs, remove the screws that secure the coils to the top of the cylinder heads and gently pull up on the coil to remove it and the short 3-4 inch plug wire that attaches the coil to the plug. A special knuckle joint or flex extension will be required to remove some of the plugs located at the rear of the engine.

There are 4 spark plugs on the drivers side of the truck, four on the passenger side of the truck.

I believe the dealership gets 190.00 time and plugs

They are on top of the cylinder head below the coil packs. If you are replacing them it will be BEST to use Motorcraft plugs and to put anti-seize on the threads.

The 4.6 L Triton wasn't used in the F-150 until 1997

The spark plug firing order for the 4.2 L V6 engine is ( 1 - 4 - 2 - 5 - 3 - 6 )

beneath each individual coil pack. You need to remove a coil pack to get to a spark plug.

on top of the spark plugs in the intake manifold.

Their are two valve covers on each side the four spark plugs are mounted in the engine block just below each of the Valve covers

The plugs are located on the inboard side of the cylinder head near the intake manifold, under or near the fuel injection rails. You do not have spark plug wires, but rather 8 separate ignition coils that sit on top of the spark plugs.

According to the 1998 Ford F-150 Owner Guide : The spark plugs for the 4.2 liter V6 engine are gapped at ( .052 to .056 inch ) * confirm with the Vehicle Emission Control Information ( VECI ) decal in the front of your engine compartment

( .054 inch ) according to www.motorcraft.com

they are under the little circle black things which are called coils

User Avatar

they are "inside" individual openings in your intake manifold. Each plug has a coil on top. Look for the coils, round with a nipple coming off that the wiring harness plugs to. You need an extension to get to them once you take off the coil. 2 of them are a real bear to change.

There are a couple of a reasons why a 1994 Ford F150 truck will not start. The truck may have a dead battery or the spark plugs need to be replaced.

Check the Vehicle Emission Control Information ( VECI ) decal located in the front of the engine compartment ( it will show the type of spark plugs to use and the spark plug gap )

I recently had that problem with my Ford f150 '07 truck and it was my spark plugs

sounds like the motor is running lean, not enough fuel.

Your spark plugs/wires may be bad or the ceramics may be cracked. Either of these cases would cause a bad connections with the spark plug wires and might cause "jumping" which would cause burn marks along the outside of the spark plug. If your spark plugs appear fine, check the wires for cracks, burn marks, or weardown. Also, and easy way to tell if you DO have a jump somewhere in your spark plugs is to run your car in a dark area and watch for sparks. It should look like a flashlight turning on or off very rapidly. It that doesn't work, (this way is a little more...painful.) Touch the top of your distributor cap lightly, then with more and more pressure, leaving your hand down for longer periods of time until your palm is flush with the cap. If at anytime you feel a jolt or shock, then there is definitely a jump somewhere in your spark/engine array. Doing a minor tuneup may also fix this.If there are burns on your spark plugs, replace them right away and see if the problem persists. (replacing the dist. cap and wires is also a wise decision, and should cost you less than 100 bucks.)AnswerThere are no wires or distributer cap for a 1998 F150 Triton engines
