You don't have to remove the manifold you can get a few ratchet extensions with a little play in them taped together with spark plug socket and remove them

My engine is beginning to run badly as the car warms up and gets worse as the day gets hotter. It sounds like its running out of fuel. I am wondering where, if there is one, the crank sensor is, and the throttle position sensors are. I need to change the spark plugs and wires?

I did replace the spark plugs on my Taurus 02 without a problem. I did it with a 5/8 " extension and a normal Craftsman 8" wrench The one in the middle (back in the middle) is the one that takes a little more time. I recommend you to use original Motorcraft ones. I wanted to use another brand and it didn't work well.
Its depend on you engine size I am going to assume you have the one that need upper intake removed or moved aside

I am replacing the spark plug in my 2000Taurus, 3.0 vulcan motor. I have replaced the front 3 but how do you get to the back 3?
Remove Upper intake manifold removed for clarity. Remove the ignition coil-on-plug. Disconnect the electrical connector. Remove the bolt. Remove the coil and plug.
The diagnostic reading showed that I had three spark plugs that were misfiring. The mechanic says that it will take two hours to replace spark plugs because the back three are located behind the manifold. My boyfriend says that he can replace them but I was leary about letting him take the manifold apart. Is this a simple process?
You shouldn"t need to remove the intake to do this, unless it is the taurus SHO. The 3.0 vulcan engine has enough space to reach back from the sides. You can"t see them, but you can feel them. This is why it takes so long to do. It"s just time consuming and sometimes frustrating. The most he would have to remove is the air intake tube. Two can be reached from the driver"s side, the other from the trans side. Good luck, let us know if you need more help.
I was told about a month ago that I need to get my spark plugs and spark plug wires changed. Problem was they wanted to charge me Almost $20.00 per spark plug and another $80.00 for the wires. And on top of that $200.00 in labor. I went and got the parts online but haven't had a chance to take my car in to get the stuff changed. Can you help me?
