Hi there. The #6 plug is located in the rear of the engine, towards the back of the motor and can be kind of tricky to reach. However, before you replace the spark plug, you might want to consider looking into the distributor or the plug wires; as this could also trigger that same error code. If you need help with replacing the spark plugs, feel free to contact one of our local mechanics to assist you with this job.
