hi, everybody: my car is 2002 ford taurus sel and miliage is 76,000 miles. When I am stoping and waitting for green lights at the crossing, the car will shake occationally. Recently it shakes more and if I turn on Air Conditionor, it will shake dramatically.

Now the check engine light is on and I bought a code reader it shows the problem are P0301 and P0316. It says I need to change spark plugs for p0301. for p0316 it says is problem about crank sensor.

Can you guys tell me what I should do? Thank you


and I asked the mechanic for changing the 6 spark plugs and the wire is totally about 300 dollars. Is it ok for this work?

$300 for changing plugs and wires? Do it yourself and save a boatload of cash

You can certainly can do it on your own. Remove the upper and lower cowling at the base of the windshield if you want some extra room. Otherwise, you just have to be creative with your use of extensions and swivel attachments. B)
