You have got to be joking right? If he doesn't know where the plugs are then he doesn't need to be working on cars...

Welcome to the club...

OK, this guy is a mechaninc? And doesn't know where the spark plugs are?

Holy crap! Good thing you found us! Even our dummest member (which could easily be me!) knows where the plugs are!

There'* six BIG wires going from the front driver'* side of your engine compartment to six different places on your engine block. The engine block ends are where the plugs are.

Don't have easy access to a pic for ya right now, tho. Sorry.

actually its the front passenger side of the engine compartment, and a mechanic who cant find the spark plugs has no buissines working on cars as a profession, even my sisters can find the spark plugs in their cars. dont take ur car back to him, he will only break it. if u decide to change ur plugs on ur own we can help u through the process, we have helped several members get their plugs changed....

maybe we should make a techinfo about tune ups, because we get so many people asking about it

hrm. not to point fingers, but it sounds like someone'* 'mechanic' maybe, just might be themselves? and they were too embarrased to ask the question?

just maybe.

it'* alright - everyone here was a newbie at some point, and the only way to get smarter is to ask...
