I think having the car fully warmed up and then pulling the coils helped a little. I mean metal expands when heated right? I took a break(1 hour) after pulling plugs 1,2,3,4,5 and definitely felt more resistance when pulling plugs 6,7,8,9,10.

cylinders 12345. I don't know when th ey were changed but I'm guessing around 15-20k miles? my car has 39k miles.

cylinders 6789 10

bridging #2 i think..

random plug



Using a rope to pull the coils helped so much! My rope was thin so I had to wrap thhe cap a couple of times just incase.

I almost fell over a couple of times pulling the last 5 coil plugs...

If anyone in the Sac area is planning on DIY I can show you in person how to pop cylinders 5 & 10.

So what is the point with the rope? Are the coils difficult to remove?

To my untrained eye, these do not look all that bad. BTW, service booklet recommends spark plug change at 37,000 miles.

For any body ever changing the spark plugs, we all know pulling the coil packs out an be a *****.. Putting a 3/8 extension through the 2 holes makes pulling them up a breeze. Never thought about using rioe but the 3/8 fits perfectly inside the holes
