Hello everyone. I was doing the tune up on my sisters ford taurus and when I got to the last three spark plugs I was not able to reach them. Can anyone please instruct me on how to reach those last three spark plugs in the back? I took out the air intake manifold already (or part of it) but I still can not reach back to get the last three spark plugs.
use a universal adapter
I had an 88 taurus. I had to raise the car up on stands and reach up from beneath the vehicle.
It all depends on what engine you have. I have the 3.8L 90 taurus, and I was able to change the rear spark plugs blind, no problem. just gotta spend some time feeling around. Didn't try going underneath though. The only thing I had to remove was that rubber intake piping leading from the filter.
im just puting this out to help any one with the same prob i have been
working on a 93 ford taurus and it was a no start. it had fuel presser but
no spark. i took off the cap an rotor an it was burnt up. then i found out
that i was not geting spark from the coil wire when cranking the motor
over. but i had a steady spark on the key on some times. i found the coil
brain box under the wiper grate and it plugs in on the fire wall. but any
way i taped on it as a friend was cranking over the motor an it fired right
up . so clearly the coil brain box was bad . i changed it an know shes back
on the road . i hope
this helps some one
