Default 2 1/2 Hour spark plug job

on the 93 taurus. i had to remove the cooling fan, and a couple heater hoses to get the to the stupid things. get them in, get the car back together and on the road, the heater core goes. so much fun. makes me wish my car would hurry up and get finished. it never had this many problems! not to mention the fact of an intermittant short in the drivers side airbag module. any body got a really really big hammer? sound like fun to you?

dude, you have no idea. they take a car, originally designed for a 4banger, and then drop the optional 3.8liter v6 in that tiny little area, and life starts to suck! makes me miss my car and the bonneville. time is coming up to work on the SHO too. that will be a nightmare. for those of you who have seen the 3.2 liter yahama that they put in those things, you would know what i am talking about

Try working on a Chevy Astro. If I remove the doghouse, then stand on my head, I can see a couple of the spark plug wires.....

I know what it'* like working on those Ford Taurus'/Mercury Sables. To get to the rear spark plugs the coil packs have to come out. Then, they're still buried under the intake manifold. Makes me angry everytime I help my buddy.

Ahh, I only had the petty 3.0L. I cant remember chaning them, but Im pretty sure I did once I first got it, I do know I changed the oil and that was easy.
