Can anyone post a picture tutorial on how to change spark plugs? I did it in my Escort ZX2, and was pathetically easy, but that was 4 years ago, and i'm not one for car maintenance.

I did search btw and only came up with three options with one who did give instructions but I would need photos to help.

Thanks in advance!!

Ya I couldn't Find any either but it is really simple. You just take the wiring harness and the coil packs out ( 1 bolt on each) Then use a 5/8's sock plug socket ( you need an extension on the wrench) When you put the new ones in only go 1/8th turn past finger tight.

Are the sparkplug wires replaceable? If so, how do you know when you need to replace the wires? Would I need to replace the distributor cap as well if I wanted to do a tune up?

I know its a newbie question, but I am only asking cause im planning to do my first tune up and save money from staying away from the dealer ha.

Thanks in advance
