I have a 2.3L 4cyl in my Ranger. The spark plug wires are very difficult to get off. I got the first two off but my hands are too big to get into the small space to get the back two off. Just wondering if anyone had a trick or tool to get them off easier.
Do you
have the same problem?

There is a spark plug wire boot puller tool you can get from your local auto parts store. You can damage spark plug wires if you are not carefuel as the boot will pull the end terminal off with it if not done properly and then you will have to re-crimp, which is very dificult and you need a special crimp tool, or replace the pulg wires.
