Customer Question

My car is making a tapping noise when I turn it on and I thought I'd change the spark plugs to make sure it wasn't the cause because it shook a lot and now the car won't start cause the coils must be mixed up.

will try and upload a video of the noise the engine was making before I switched the spark plugs. I changed all spark plugs except the one behind the engine on the right side that I can't reach and after they were changed the car would not start anymore it just makes a clicking sound when I try and turn it on

It has been a couple of days since I have heard from you. Do you still need assistance? I have also noticed that I have not received a rating from you. If for some reason you question did not get answered please reply. I am only compensated for my time when you leave a positive rating. Your understanding is appreciated.
