    Doing a little maintenance this morning and tried to install new spark plugs, coil packs and new plug wires but the the new plug wires don't work. Any ideas? The left is the stock Toyota ones that plugs into the passenger side coils and the right ones are the replacement new wires:

    Thanks I'm running my stock wires for now until I can send these back for a refund.

    Doesn't go down. The stock is the female end and the replacement is a male end if that makes sense. I needed a replacement set with female end for it to work.

    That's very unusual for any spark plug wire to have a "male" end. What the heck kind of spark plug has a female fitting?!

    Exactly don't know what they were thinking. They even asked for vin to make sure it fits and they sent me this.
