SOURCE: How do I change the spark plugs on a BMW 523i

The spark plug change is very straight forward. Basically, you remove the plastic valve cover trim panel, unplug the harness plugs from each of the ignition coils, remove the two nuts securing each coil, pull the coil up. The rubber spark plug connector boot should come up with the coil. You can now remove the spark plugs.

The spark plugs are not gappable. Install them as they come out of the box.

Replace the rubber connector boots at the same time, these wear out and can cause miss-fire problems.

Note that if you find oil in the spark plug wells, the valve cover gaskets must be replaced. Not only does this make a mess, but it deteriorates the boots and also causes miss-fires.

See the DIY article in the Spring 2005 issue of the Bavarian Autosport - Fast Times newsletter (see link below):

Contact Bavarian Autosport for the spark plugs and connector boots (and valve cover gaskets) at 800-535-2002, or order online.

Spark plug


OK, I'm going to give a little tough love here since you are asking questions that would indicate you haven't changed spark plugs before. If this is the first time you have changed plugs, you really need to enlist a friend that can guide you thru the process - its an easy job, but things CAN go wrong. A spark plug insulator can break when removing or installing the plug, The plug can cross thread and damage or even ruin the cylinder head leading to an expensive repair, Wires can get re-installed incorrectly, Do you have a gap tool to check the electrode gap? Sorry for the long diatribe. I just don't want to give advice that will cause you problems. Please reassure me!

Im thinking of trying to change all the spark plugs and leads myself.would i need to get a new casket for the cover?also,is there any other things i should watch out for ?


as for the valve cover gaskets, if no oil leaks there ok. as for the plug wires, when replacing. do one wire at a time as not to get them on the wrong cylinders. dont forget to make sure gap is right on plugs before putting them in. good-day !

How do I change spark plugs and cables on my 05 Nissan sentra 1.8 special edition??and what else do I need besides the plugs ? Please write back at mailto:Marcomerino75@yahoo.com


Hello,
I am carsandcomps from Fixya.com. My name is Brandon. In order to replace your spark plug wires and spark plugs (best to do both) - do one at a time. Start from one side of the engine (ex: drive front/back) depending on your engine position; doesn't really matter, just start at one side.
1. Remove plug wire from plug (make sure new plug is gapped; auto parts dealer can give you this, and sell you a spark plug gap tool for cheap) 2. Follow the spark plug wire (existing one) to it's place on the distributor (if equipped) or coil pack (if equipped). 3. Pull the wire off from the distributor cap (or coil pack if equipped); insert new (gapped) spark plug, and put the new plug wire on.
Do this step for each one, as it ensures each one is placed properly and your engine will run as needed when finished. Also make sure they "click" when pushing them onto the plugs and distributor cap (coil pack) whichever is present.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Take spark plug out and while plug wire is connected to plug...ground plug to chassis and turn the engine and watch for spark in plug gap.

If you have a spark in the gap...I'd then check fuel system for clogged filter, fuel pump pressure etc.
If you don't have a spark in plug gap...then I'd go to the coil or coil pack depending on the model.

Hope this helps...

You always have to at least check spark plug gap

In 47 years, I have never seen a set of plugs that were not
knocked around & the ground electrode bent, on at least
a couple of them

You can clean a rotor & cap & get 3 years out of them,
no need to replace until they get too corroded

Wires last 15 years no problem
Don't get caught up in all the hype & tune-up non sense

The gap is on the radiator support label

The coil has to be tested,you don't throw parts at a problem

If it doesn't start, it has nothing to do with rotor,cap,plugs or wires

You could throw away 2 plugs & it would start on 6

What would be the best spark plug to buy for an 05 Equinox with 60,000 miles on it and what would the gap be?


!st let me say your engine is not due a set of plugs until 100,000 miles, and to change them any sooner is a waste of money.

If you still wish to replace the plugs use ACDelco Spark Plugs, here is the part number and gap.

ACDELCO Part # 41101 [Iridium]
SPARK PLUG GAP .060"

Misfiring after replacement of spark plugs and wires


If it wasn't misfiring before. Make sure you have the proper gap on the spark plugs. Make sure you have the wires connected in the correct order. If you have the old wires, you may want to end up trying those one at a time to make sure you don't have a defect wire either.
Thank you,
Lee
