Default Changed plugs now won't start.

2001 L300 6 cylinder.

I replaced the spark plugs which took a while on this model. The mechanic said there was a problem with either one of the coils on the coil pack or a plug. I replaced the plugs. One of the plug caps was difficult to come off but finally did. I put everything back together and now it will not start. I checked all of the fuses and everything looks good. There is no security light showing.

What should I do?

I would appreciate any help.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Did you re-check all wiring that was disconnected as both intake runners were removed before plugs were seen? The ecm, both coil packs, miscellaneous connections?

They're are held on by two reverse torx bolt and once those are off you should be able to pop them right out. And when you put them back in make sure you vacuum the tube so not dirt is in there before removing the plugs. Also check the plug at the coil pack it has to snap in. I know I got new one and they have plastic plug in the new coil pack that you need to take out so the plug fits in otherwise it won't connect.
