    Replacing Spark Plug Wires? 2000 SLX

    For several years I've had this occasional stumble on the SLX, sometimes it would idle at only 800, and break up a bit when trying to accelerate. Once it got so bad it wouldn't clear up and I had to tow it back.

    I cut back the spark plug wires at the plug end, and this seemed to fix it. The issue is beginning to reappear, so I began looking into how to change out the wires altogether.

    Here on the parts diagram you can see they sell the spark plug wires separately from the coil, so obviously they can be removed. But I can't get them off!

    Anybody have any experience with this?

    i have seen them apart in a thread not to long ago.. i think you have to cut around the edge of base of the wire and pull them out.. then with the new ones make sure there sealed and glues well back in place.

    Well, it turns out they have a kind of quick-connect. Just pull real hard, and presto! It's just crimped on to the end of the wires, just like on the plug end. Turns out it isn't my problem, messing with them today and still have my stutter. Guess I'm gonna change the wires entirely, and if that doesn't fix it, I'll spring for a new coil....

    They just pull out but it takes a little bit of muscle to do it...they are not glued in...at least they are not suppose to be.

    If you can't order them, I have a brand new set available...just send me a PM.
