On-vehicle Inspection
Spark Test
1.
Disconnect the ignition coil connectors (A).

   
When disconnecting the ignition coil connector, pull out the locking pin (A) and then pull out the connector while pressing the clip (B).

2.
Remove the ignition coils (A).

3.
Disconnect the injector connectors (A).

4.
Using a spark plug socket, remove the spark plug.
5.
Install the spark plug to the ignition coil.
6.
Ground the spark plug to the engine.

7.
Check if spark occurs while engine is being cranked.

9.
Using a spark plug socket, install the spark plug.
10.
Reconnect the injector connectors.
11.
Install the ignition coils.

Tightening torque :
