1. Park the vehicle in a safe, level location.
Make sure to park in a well-lit area on a level surface so that you can easily work on the car.
2. Remove the key from the ignition.
Remove the key to avoid accidentally starting the engine while you are working on it.
3. Open the hood of the car.
This will give you access to the engine compartment so that you can work on it.
4. Locate and remove the engine cover
The engine cover is located at the front of the engine compartment and needs to be removed in order to access most of the components beneath it.
5. Check the engine oil level and add oil as needed (see owner’s manual for the proper type of oil).
The engine oil level should be checked before doing any other work on the car and added if necessary. Consult your owner’s manual for information on what type of oil to use.
6. Connect battery charger (if available).
If you have a battery charger, connect it to the battery now so that you can start charging it.
7. Remove spark plugs (using socket wrench).
Spark plugs should be removed using a socket wrench. Be careful not to drop them or damage them while they are out of the car.
8. Inspect sparks plugs for damage or fouling and replace them if necessary.
Spark plugs should be inspected for damage or fouling before being replaced. Damaged or fouled spark plugs can cause problems with the car’s performance.
9. Clean electrodes on spark plugs using a wire brush.
Use a wire brush to clean any dirt or debris from the electrodes on the spark plugs. This will help them function properly when they are replaced.
10. Replace spark plugs (tighten to 18 Nm).
Replace the spark plugs by tightening them to 18 Nm using a socket wrench. This will ensure that they are properly seated and will not come loose.
