I just wanted to know when installing spark plugs, is there a particular order in doing so? Do I remove the plug on the far right and replace it with the new one right after and do the same thing for the rest going to the left? Or do I just remove all of them and then install the new ones in no order? In the manual it says the firing order for a 95 accord 4 cylinder is 1-3-4-2. Does that mean I remove and install the plugs in that order? Please help me out with this because I read the Haynes manual and I'm still kinda confused. Thanks guys. :???:

It doesnt matter what order you do them in but DONT TAKE THEM ALL OFF AT ONCE! Its easy to forget which wires go to wich plug/cylinder and you can fowl them easily....trying to figure out what goes where once you lost your place is not fun. Just take one wire off at a time, change the plug, put that wire back on and move to the next. Doesnt matter where you start.

It does not matter at all! The wires are differnt lenghts (for which cylinder they reach) and they are NUMBERED. Duh.

Yeah, but some people still get it wrong. Im just givin the kid a safe answer. And not all wires are numbered.

It's kinda hard to mess up the ignition wires considering they are certain lengths and will only reach the correct plug :roll:

The firing order isn't the order in which you remove them. It doesn't make a difference which one you take out first. The firing order is the order in which they fire during combustion (when your engine is running). They don't all fire at once, it goes in a sequence.
