    Help with click noise from spark plug

    I changed my plugs today now I get a slight clicking noise from the cylinder on the right side of the motor closest to the firewall. When I undo the coil to that cylinder it goes away and when I step on the gas it gets louder. I pulled the plug out and its fine. Suggestions?

    You might have arcing on the insulator from anti seize compound. pull the plug and clean it. Spray the inside of the boot on ignitor with maf cleaner or alky . Keep it clean and reinstall. Good luck

    Did you disconnect the battery when doing the install ?

    Yes. Turned out the coil was bad. Put a new coil on and no problems.
