I know you didnt just skip the impossible side brahhhh…..

Steve Zimmer says:

This is the first A1 Auto video I was completely disappointed in. Yes, keep it simple, but they only did the easiest plug. The others on the other side are a lot more complex. (Tire/ skit removal and gymnastics are required. Hoping for some tips on the difficult parts.

Lash LaRue says:

This video was not helpful. For this job, you need to get the wheels and inner fender guards off to access the back of the engine compartment. This video did not demonstrate this.

Rocker2002 says:

Sweet now tell me how to access it

your mom likes me says:

Lol…nobody is showing how to change spark plug 1, 2, and 3 on a ford.

Ted Compton says:

A1 is right on but didn't recommend antiseize? just dialectic grease. Exspect better from A1

G A says:

WTF? How do I access the passenger side spark plugs? That's what I want to know.

Rick Deboi says:

This video is a waste of time! However, good tip about using dielectric grease to repel moisture and protect the electrical connection against corrosion. But wasn't this video specifically about how to change the spark plugs on Ford Ranger truck with 4.0L V6?

I remember when I did this a few years back for my brother, that two of the sparkplugs were nearly impossible to change. In fact, my brother had a mechanic on Craigslist tune-up his truck but the mechanic wasn't able to change the two difficult sparkplugs! I had to install the other two. I believe I had to remove the front tire and get to the sparkplugs from the fender well.

This video is a joke. A better title for the video would be "how to use dielectric grease!"

Kevin Lewis says:

Wrong plugs. Should be double platinum.

Danny Sanford says:

What a WONDERFUL Video Shows the Easy Side but not how to do the hard, passenger side ;-(

arthur santagata says:

hello what besides a set of plugs and wires are required for a tune up on a ford ranger? thank you

Steve W says:

Are the plugs pre-gapped?

Patrick Hartigan says:

These guys are great, I feel like I own their red truck at this point. Gave them some business as a thank you. Still, on this one they missed the mark, at least for the passenger side. There's no way I could ever get the plugs off without taking out the wheel well. It's not bad at all – 7 bolts and a bit of wrestling. Then remove tire. With a u-joint-like spark plug socket you can get to the plug near the firewall and also safely pull off the boots without ripping off the rubber part and leaving the metal part on the plug. Save yourself a lot of aggravation and come in from the side not from the top.

i would let that purdy boy fix me up right any time

No gap check?
