A little known secret of the TCCA is the wiki. It is a collection of modification and maintenance articles written by TCCA members just like you. Every member has the ability to add new articles to the wiki, and to modify existing articles to make them better. Feel free to check there first if you are looking for a detailed writeup before posting in the maintenance/repair forum.

However, with all of the writeups and posts in the maintenance forum, it's hard to find good and helpful posts. We need you to submit any articles that you wrote, or were helpful to you in solving a problem. You should be able to copy/paste the post directly into the wiki. If you need help, feel free to pm a mod or admin. Or, you can post the link to the topic here, and we can add it for you.

What ever happened to the old school writeups we had before the Wiki? I don't think all of those made it to the Wiki before they disappeared.

Does anyone know if the procedure for changing spark plugs works on a duratec with COPs?

I tried doing a couple of weeks ago and I ended up having to remove my UIM to get to the rear ones because there was no room to pull out the COP.

I've been trying to edit some information in the Wiki, but articles that have been in there, including one I wrote, are locked for editing. I PM'd Jason and Adam about it a week or so ago, but haven't heard back from either of them. What's up with this? There is some incorrect information in one of the articles that needs to be corrected.
