Service and Repair
Failure to route the cables properly could cause the radio to reproduce ignition noise, cross ignition of the spark plugs or short circuit the cables to ground.
NOTE: REMOVE cables from coil first before removing spark plug insulator.
Special care should be used when installing spark plugs in this cylinder head spark plug wells. Be sure the plugs do not drop into the wells, damage to the electrodes can occur.
Always tighten spark plugs to the specified torque. Over tightening can cause distortion resulting in a change in the spark plug gap. Overtightening can also damage the cylinder head.
Remove the negative battery cable, Always remove the spark plug cable by grasping the top of the spark plug insulator, turning the boot 1/2 turn and pulling straight up in a steady motion.
1.Remove the spark plug using a quality socket with a rubber or foam insert.
2.Inspect the spark plug condition.
1.To avoid cross threading, start the spark plug into the cylinder head by hand.
2.Tighten spark plugs to 28 Nm (20 ft. lbs.) torque.
3.Install spark plug insulators over spark plugs. Ensure the top of the spark plug insulator covers the upper end of the spark plug tube.
4.Install spark plug cable to coil. Install the negative battery cable.
