SPARK PLUGS

1998 Toyota Camry

Engine Mechanical problem

How do I replace the spark plugs. Where are they? Do I need special tools. Or should I just go to a mechanic?

Hi there,

The plugs are in the cylinder head on top you will see the 4 plug leads, you will be able to pull the lead by the rubber boot the plugs are deep set and you will need a spark plug socket & extension bar to reach them, also you may have leaking plug tubes, this is common on these engines, if so there you will have to take it to a mechanic as the rocker cover will have to be removed and the tubes re tightened or replaced if cracked. It will take a mechanic about 10 MIN to replace 4 spark plugs, maybe just get them to do it if you don; t have the tools.
