Whats the easiest way to check for loose plugs other than to take everything apart. Can you push on coil paks or anything like that

Listen for what sounds like an exhaust look...pull the coils ...use a extension and plug socket and see if you can run any out by hand

Found two loose plugs on p/s head. Just retightened them, is that ok? Still have one more to get to under throttle body. Hoping I can just disconnect the fuel line right there and squeeze out coil pak to check that last plug. How often do I need to check plugs? and what can I do to stop them from loosening? I am running kb supercharger with 9lbs of boost and I am def not easy on car

I didn't have to disconnect my fuel line to get to mine...I did when I had to drill mine out

The coil pack? Yea...its a lil bit of a pain...and if the boot sticks take some pliers or vise grips and put the bottom jaw in the boot and twist it out

Yeah the coil pack. I will try tomorrow and see if i can get it out. I was going to blow it off but if the two on both sides of it were loose it is a strong possibility that one is too. Weird how all the others were tight

Use a 1/4" drive torque wrench, and torque them to 11-13 inch-pounds...
