Spark Plugs

Post by Duncan22 » Thu Jun 14, 2018 6:06 pm

Like a number of people on this forum I tend to do my own servicing.
Looking at the workshop manual for the Juke 1.6 petrol tenka it appears changing the spark plugs is not as straight forward as on most cars due to the number of items to be removed and the cooling fluid to be drained.
Ok not a major task which I accept is something only needed doing every 2 or 3 years depending on mileage but still seems odd

Hi Mate, I have never known the cooling fluid to be drained when changing the spark plugs.
I have only removed the engine cover, then the individual coil from each plug and then unscrew the plug.
Then the reverse to install the new plug.
Its only a Juke if it's RED.

Thanks for your reply.
Looking at the Hayes workshop manual 1A.16 section 26 park plug renewal it says ' On 1.6 litre engines remove the inlet manifold as described in chapter 4A section 14.
That goes on to describe draining of the coolant etc.
Has the Hayes manual got it wrong ?
Clearly you have renewed the plugs without the need to do this, seems odd Hayes made such a mistake anyone else with a copy of the manual have comments on this ?

Looking at the engine on my 1.6 petrol Juke (2012) I can see no way the cowling can be removed without first disconnecting the various hoses.
Can someone with the same engine confirm it is possible to change the plugs without disconnecting these hoses.
Pity there is no youtube video that shows the proceedure

2. Remove air inlet tube assembly. Refer to EM-31, "Exploded View".
3. Remove ignition coil.
4, Remove spark plug .
Its only a Juke if it's RED.

Bernie,
Thanks but at the risk of sounding silly what are you referring to EM-25, " Exploded view" ?
I guess it's some sort of manual or link to something on this site.
Please advise.
Thank you for your help.
