Spark plugs
I am wondering what is spark plug for? And where to install it? Does it makes any difference?

A celica has 4 cylinders, each of which work on a 4 stroke cycle. Intake, Compression, Combustion, Exhaust. Picture the piston in the cylinder starting at top dead center. When it drop downs by means of the crankshaft it pulls air and fuel in, when it goes back up to the top it compresses the air and fuel. A spark plug ignites this air and fuel thus pushing the piston back down with great force. this in turn makes power that goes through the connecting rod, to the crankshaft, and through the drivetrain to the wheels thus making power. learn more on howstuffworks.com. they are installed usually on the top, or the side of the motor and have spark plug wire connected to them. and the kind you get does make a difference depending on how hot the spark is. hope this helps.

Spark plugs ignite your air / gasoline mixture.

On your GT, take the plastic cover off the top of the motor. You will see 4 black coils, remove those. Under them are 4 spark plugs. Use a socket & extension to remove them. Replace them with new Iridium plugs, get them from Toyota. They are good for about 60,000 miles.

That's one odd shifter knob you have there:

******I am having a lil trouble with my car, so I thought I'd replace the spark plugs, went to the dealer and the Tech said that I dont need to replace'em 'til am in 120k miles, that our iridium sparks last up 150k if they r well maintain... wave

^^ that's not true.

Sure they LAST that long, but they don't work as well.

If I leave a piece of meat on the counter for a week, it will still be meat, but I wouldn't want to eat it.
