Video: How to change your spark plugs and more

I think this applies to most BMWs, but I could be wrong.

Click This for Spark Plug Video

I have other videos on www.umnitza.com - and I'm going to release one shortly on how to install the X-brace for the E36.

BTW that thing is ignition coil, not injectors


Ohhh and btw, after you removed cover it is recomended to close oilcap, since accidently fallen screw in the engine is not a good thing

That's some happening music you got there.

Also, it's good practice to put a touch of anti-seize compound on the spark plug threads. And check to see if there is any oil (or other stuff) around the spark plugs before removing them (possible valve cover gasket leak).

Many BMW also don't have the ignition coils mounted directly over the spark plugs. But the newer ones seem to be that way.

That said, geat video, it's alot easier to visualize how to do something with a video then with just words and pictures. Thanks and keep the videos coming!
