Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
Never worked on van 98 ford and needing directions and photos in replacement of new spark plugs and wires
Just make sure that the plugs and wires are for your vehicle then change each sparkplug wire according to its length, the sparkplugs if they are new are already gapped.

I would check that you are getting a live feed to your glow plugs terminals first, on cold starting, with a 12v test light.
Expensive to renew them, and then find it was the fuse or relay !
Best of luck !
Don´t forget to give me a vote !

This web site shown below on replacing plugs might help you if you have never done it before. You will need to purchase the correct size spark plug socket so purchase the plugs first. The guide in the site below is quite good.
Take your time and only do one plug removal and replacement at a time and you won't get the wiring confused.

Try this. If the distributor is in the right way, the clips that hold the cap on should be just a hair off of 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock. #1 is positioned at 1 o'clock, which is at the firewall side of the distributor. The firing order is 1-5-4-2-6-3-7-8and is counterclockwise from #1. The passenger's side is cylinders 1-2-3-4, from the front of the car. The driver's side is 5-6-7-8 from the front. Hope this will help.

SOURCE: Spark Plug Replacement
I changed my spark plugs and wires myself two days ago after a quote of around $550 from a local repair shop with welcomed success. It's really high because of the time it takes to do this job. I took my time and did it in about 5 hrs. The answer given for the website is a great source and helped me through a very tedious process. My best advice in addition to that is to have some 1" tape (i used flourescent green for visibility) and a sharpie and mark EVERY STINKING WIRE, HARNESS, PLUGS AND HOSES. Also it helps to make a small diagram of the bolt patterns and varoius lengths and placement of each. I started with numbering the bolts and lettering the wires and harnesses to combat confusion. I hope this helps anyone taking on this hideous task.
