Directions how to change the sparkplugs

Remove spark plug wire with a spark plug cable remover tool. Blow out debris around spark plug. Remove spark plug with spark plug socket, extension and ratchet.

Use a gap gauge to set the proper gap on the new spark plug. Screw it in loosely by hand. Then tighten to the published torque spec using a torque wrench. Apply a dab of dielectric grease to the tip of the spark plug cable and reinstall the cable. If you don't have those tools, don't try it.

Spark plug gap for 503 Rotex

Hi Faye,

I found this,

Rotax spark plug advisory for ultralight, experimental lightsport, amateur built aircraft.

Rotax 2 stroke aircraft engine spark plugsThe recommended spark plugs for the Rotax 277, Rotax 377, Rotax 447, Rotax 503, Rotax 532, Rotax 582 are the NGK B8ES series or the NGK BR8ES ( the R in the spark plug denotes it is a resistor plug and should be used in all of the CDI ignition engines.

BUT the Bosch points ignition engines should NOT use both a resistor plug and a resistor spark plug cap - use one or the other.

The least expensive option in the long run is the cap as you purchase it once while the resistor plugs cost more than the standard plug each time you buy them.

Ad Code TwoHere

Use spark plugs that have a SOLID TIP - DO NOT USE spark plugs that have an aluminum screw on tip. They vibrate loose, the tip wears making a loose cap to plug fit, and can lead to the spark plug arcking across from the cap to the plug. Also the screw on style spark plugs are NOT designed for our applications, the gap is generally set up for .030 to .035 thou. The solid tip spark plugs are set up for a gap of .015 to .020 thou.

Spark plug gap

  • Allowable range: 0.4-0.5mm / .015 -.020"

  • Optimal: I usually set them to .015 and let them wear out to .019

  • This also helps getting the engine started in colder conditions

How do I change my sparkplugs on 2008 Fit?

Hi Anonymous. If your Honda Fit is the DSi engine type with 8 ( eight ) spark plugs, the only thing you do is as you do the replacement with the outer four spark plugs by loosing the 10mm bolts holding the coils,pulling the coils upwards and by using the 16mm spark plug socket loose the spark plugs and by using a magnet just pull out the old ones and refit the new ones. It is the same procedure you have to do for the inner side other 4 (four ) spark plugs,you just have to make a slight room to have access and using a shorter extension bar for the 16mm socket. Good luck.

My mazda v6 mx6 2.5, automatic misfiring. what could be the problem

what year and how many miles? check engine light on? problem could be as easy as a spark plug wire loose or broken. so first check for broken or loose spark plug wires check them close with your hand. u can also check at night time with the engine running, watching for an out of place spark. next i would check the spark plugs, remove and inspect for proper clearances. still no luck u can do a compression test on each cylinder. fuel delivery could also be a problem but a little more complicated to check. u could always put some fuel injector clean in ur fuel tank. ps if u take ur spark plugs out look at the spark plugs tips. compare the spark plugs with a spark plug condition chart. also always use anti seize compound on the threads of your spark plug before installation.

Not getting no spark to the plugs

put one of your spark plugs out and put the wire on the end and touch it on the motor and have someone start the car and if you see a spark the that is good you might have a couple bad spark plugs you might have a couple bad spark plug wires try that though and if there is no spark then ist best to just get new spark plugs and new spark plug wires

While changing spark plugs one broke off & thread part still in the head, what is the best way to get it out.

You should still be able to get a spark plug socket on it. Unscrew it all the way until it is loose. I am assuming you have the engine where the spark plugs are recessed in the head and difficult to reach. What you need, once the remaining part of the plug is loose, is a very strong magnetic pickup tool that is long enough to reach the plug. Another option is to get a length of rubber hose just small enough to fit in the spark plug hole, but large enough to fit around the spark plug. Push the hose down over the spark plug. If it fits snug enough, you will be able to pull the plug out with the rubber hose. Good luck.

Number 2 spark plug wire keeps popping off spark plug

First, make sure the spark plug is in tight and not cross threaded (take it and put back in). If the plug is loose, pressure comes out of the cylinder and pushed the wire off.

Second, push the spark plug boot on and massage the air out of the boot.

Hope this helps.
