I stripped out the hex type screw/bolt for securing the spark plug wires on my Chrysler 2003 300 M Special. Do you know how I can get a replacement hex type screw? Do you know the part number?

SOURCE: 1991 Lincoln Mark VII LSC spark plugs and wires

A pair of decent long handled pliers/plug boot remover are recommended. apart from that, maybe some swivel pieces for the plug socket to get at funny angles.

recommend you:
- buy decent wires & plugs.

-put a dab of silicone on every wire boot to ensure easy fitting.

-Be verycareful when tightening the plugs so as not to crook the socket and crack the porcelain on the plug.

-Plugs should have a dab of copper grease or similar on the threads

-Plugs do not nee to be super tight, they have a compression washer at the base of the threads or a tapered thread fit that seals them well. only tighten them with a short length 3/8 ratchet not a big 1/2 inch - you'll strip the thread and regret that forever.

-Always make sure the wires dont touch the exhaust manifold and make them look like you just bought the vehicle, nice and straight and in tidy rows. You'll need a flat screwdriver, short, to undo enclosed plug wire harness mountings. be patient, they do unfasten ok once you suss em out.

-plugs are usually already correctly gapped. check them. gap can be check with Autozone or where u get the plugs from.Note the gap may be brand dependant - bosch platinum take a different gap to cheapo champions....

Hope you get a good job done

How to replace spark plugs in a 1999 lincoln continental

There are 8 plugs in the V8, 4 on each side. Over each plug is a coil that easily pulls off of each spark plug, hence 8 coils. There are two covers--one over each set of 4 coils and plugs.
The front cover has a metal tag on it that reads, "InTake 32 Valve V8". It has two 10 milometer hex screws holding it on. The back cover is the same shape as the front, but is up closer to the window. You will need just the right socket extension to get the back 4 plugs out. Good luck.

Bolt is stripped, very tight and can't remove from egr valve

The only thing that I can think to help you out is to either drill a small hole in the center of the bolt and then try to get a flat head screw driver in to unscrew it.  Or the other option would be to get those special socket sets that are designed to take out stripped bolts.  The set I have is from Sears and I have used it many times so I know they work but I'm sure you can save some money if you go to Home Depot or Lowes.  Good luck!

2008 dodge avenger spark plug location and socket size.

  • 2008+ Dodge Avenger 2.4L 4cyl.
  • Remove plastic cover on top of engine, just pull on each corner for it is friction fit.
  • Once removed you will see 4 black spark plug covers with one hex type screw holding each.
  • Remove Hex screw and place aside, pull upward to remove plug boot from plug.
  • To remove the plug, use a 5/8 socket with a 6" extension. Once plug has been turned out all the way and you cannot get the plug up and out of the hole, just press the plug boot back on the plug and pull it back up.
  • Gap and replace 4 plugs with the same or equavalent type,. Drop plug down the hole and use socket to align and tighten until just snug, then torque to manufactures specifications.

HOw to get into engine to change spug pluggs and leads for Toyota estima 1993

The best thing to do is to purchase a Haynes manual for the Toyota Previa. But to access the spark plug wires and spark plugs you will need to remove the passenger front seat. This requires taking out four bolts on the four corners of the seat. After the seat is removed you need to remove the outside seat support and the jack and jack handle that is located under the seat. Next remove the bolt from the seat belt/shoulder harness. Romove the screws from the side of the carpet keeper strip along the bottom of the door. carefully, using a flat blade screwdriver, pry the plastic carpet strip up carefully disengaging it from the rear strip. Unhook the carpet from the edge of the doorway. Pull the carpet back enough to expose the bolts holding the cover over the engine. Remove all the bolts holding the cover over the engine. This will expose the engine head. remove the three bots holding the black plastic cover over the spark plug wires. This wires can be removed allowing access to the plugs. Be aware these engines use only platinum tipped spark plugs. Good Luck

How do i change the spark plugs in a triton v-10?

All the spark plugs are located beneath each coil pack. The coils are located on the top of the engine next to each fuel injector, above each cylinder, through the intake manifold. you need to open the "dog house" engine cover in the cab. You will have to remove the intake hosing back to the throttle body from under the hood. then you'll have to access each individual coil pack by removing the four nuts(13mm hex) that hold the coil/ injector harnesses (and any wiring that might impede access), both from outside and inside the vehicle. The coils are each held down with a single bolt (7mm hex). once you unplug each coil from the wiring harness and remove the bolt, you'll be able to remove each coil to access the plugs. There is a special "Triton" spark plug socket sold by Snap-on Tools, but you can remove each with a regular 5/8" plug socket and 6" extension (and a little determination). When you replace the plugs, I would recommend replacing the plug boots as well,and using dielectric silicone grease inside where contacts are made to the coil and plug . Check for corrosion on the contact inside the coil, where the spring inside the boot attaches to the coil. Clean the contact points, or if too corroded, replace the coil( usually only in extreme situations). Replace everything in reverse order of removal. Hope this helps

Spark plug

Get a spark plug socket with the hex head on the top. Put it on the plug and use a wrench to turn it. You should purchase a deep 5/8" spark plug socket. Those are a pain you know where! Try not to let the plug wires sit on the exhaust manifold either or your will be replacing them again soon.
Good luck .....Scott

you may have a bad coil---take a pair of rubber handle plyers & remove the spark plug wires 1 at a time---when you pull off a plug wire you should notic the truck runs even worse---the one you pull off & it doesnt change the way it runs--that is the cylinder that has the problem
