changing plugs on TS - simples?

Not looked yet, so just a heads up please for the inexperienced - I have tools to remove plastic engine cover but as yet not sure what i will find..

Are all 8 plugs easily accessed? any preference of plug spec for 120k mile engine that runs cool and doesnt get revved hard? - Doesnt use much oil - over 2000 mls before minor top up

Whilst there, how are injectors removed for thorough clean? - Any recommended injector cleaners near Kettering?

cheers D

You have to remove the coil packs (4 ribe bolts) then gently pull off the plug caps. Be sure to clean out the recesses to stop any crud getting through plug holes. A rag and compressed air is best. The plugs are deeply recessed.change one at a time and engine should be cold. I went for bocshe plugs cos eurocarparts had a deal on. The recommended NGK platinum ones are 70 wish but supposed to last 60k miles.

What he said :-) easy pips job. You might find oil in the holes which I got a pipet to suck it out.

+2 Very easy. I'd recommend you stick the nozzle of a vacuum cleaner down the holes before you remove the plugs to stop any loose dirt getting into the bores.
