    Going to change the spark plugs this weekend. Does anyone know the torque specs or is it the regular hand tighten to a dead stop and then 1/8 more of a turn?

    Thank you in advance.

    enjoy...Torque is as stated. It's real easy in the 4 banger. The hardest part is getting the ring collar off/loose on the intake to move the cover. You might want a shop vac handy to clean the top after you disconnect the coil packs to keep dirt/debris from falling in when you remove the plugs. I had mouse turds, acorns etc all in there...I don't know when a mouse got the idea that was a nice place because I drive ALL the time...Must have been a vacation week.
    Oh and one of these was great

    I don’t use a torque wrench.
    But if you do that is fine.

    I've read the "three finger method" works too, is that correct?
