4.0 sparkplug problem solved

After hours of fussin, cussin, & knuckle bustin here it is. Multiple extensions & swivels? forget it! No extensions or swivels? nope. On the pass. side through the wheel well 3/8s ratchet, swivel & sparkplug socket. A 3" extension is to long so use the 1.5" swivel as an extension. On the drivers side I had to use extensions & a swivel through the engine compartment & or through the wheel well. Hope this helps someone. Be safe use jack stands.

I don't see what the problem is. I always thought that the plugs were quite easy to change. By the fourth time i had to do them, I could knock them out in a under a half hour.

Well ain't you special. After I figured out how to access them it didn't take me but about an hour. Thanks for being a smart *** though. Just looking to help a fellow Ranger owner. Guess you got it all figured out. That being the case why don't you put something helpful instead of talking smack.

Here is me being a smartass again. Try searching and you would have found numerous posts about removing the fender liner to get at them.
Kiss my ***.

See now your being helpful, however I'm not looking for help. As for kissing your ***, that's just sick. I like girls. Not telling you how to be though.

Just changed my 4.0 plugs last year

I had to pull both front tires & go thru the inner liners except the plug beneath the battery . I used a long extension & the plug came right out.
O'Yes it took 5 hours to complete.
I found out that some times I don't start my truck for a month causing air bubbles In the fuel line ,so I charge the fuel line several time so I get a positive shot of gas to start my engine. Roc
