Duratec 2.3 Sparkplugs

2002 Ranger 5 speed. The owner's manual says there are 8 plugs for this engine. I found 4 on top of the DOHC where ere the other 4 ?

Thanks

Not that I have seen a D-tec up close and personal, but I thought they got rid of the dual plug head with the passing of the Lima engine?

If you don't find 2 coil packs or 8 spark plug wires running around the engine, you probably only have 4 and a different year owner's manual (I hope).

(AutoZone's site was no help...couldn't find anything put together on Google, een the Rangerstation is 'members only' entrance now.)

The other 4 plugs are under the intake manifold. Look closely and you'll see them in there, laughing at you and taunting you to remove them. They're not that bad, but it does take a little time to replace them.

My 03 Mazda B2300 has the same Duratech 2.3. There are only 4 plugs and they are on the top of the engine. I think they abandoned the 8 plug setup in 2000 when the Duratech replaced the older 2.3.
