my advise don't get those, they don't work as well as you think they do.
if you think about it if they are so much better why don't drag racers use them?
because they actually block the ignition point.

just get the factory style plugs and you will be better off.

Not a big deal. Realize that the plugs from the factory are Iridium and are good for 100K miles. Assemble the following:

6 Denso IKH20 Iridium Plugs pre-set to .044 gap ($10 each) High Temperature anti-seize (crayon type is $3 at NAPA)
3/8 inch drive ratchet
5/8 inch spark plug socket
4-inch extension
10-inch extension
10 mm socket
12 mm socket
torque wrench (or make real sure you don't over tighten the plugs) new air filter (optional)

Start on the passenger side. Disconnect the air induction/filter assembly by un-snapping the two spring latches on the black air intake box closest to the front of the car. Once these are un-latched, fold the air intake assembly out of the way. Now would also be a good time to replace the air filter if you have not done so lately. With the air intake assembly out of the way, you now have clear access to the top of the valve cover. Along either side on top of the valve cover you will notice three black modules each held in place with one 10mm bolt with a small wiring harness connector attached. These are the coils (one per plug), and the spark plugs are located underneath. Disconnect the wiring harness connector and remove the 10mm bolt. Pull straight up on the coil and it should disconnect from the spark plug. Look down the hole and you can see the top of the spark plug 5 inches down. Using a 5/8 inch spark plug socket with a rubber 'holder' inside the socket to hold the plug, remove each plug. I had to use a 10-inch ratchet extension to provide sufficient clearance. I know it sounds goofy using a standard size socket on a metric car, but it is what it is. I make sure I get each coil back to its original location, but it really does not matter as they are all the same. Since the heads are aluminum and the spark plugs are stainless steel or monel/nickel, you have to be careful not to ruin the threads on the heads. I ONLY remove the plugs when the engine is cold. Apply some high temperature anti-seize only to the threads on the new plugs and install to 18ft-lbs of torque. Slip the coil back in place, attach the connector, install and tighten the bolt and you are done with that plug. Repeat for each plug. Re-install the air intake assembly and snap down the two latches and you are through with that side.

The driver's side is more difficult as there are things in the way. I had to remove one bracket (held in place with 2 12mm bolts) and disconnect a rubber hose underneath that bracket (it just slipped off with little effort - no tools required) in order to provide sufficient room to remove the coils. This is not as bad as it sounds, and I had both removed in under 2 minutes. Now you have access to the coils and plugs and can repeat the process. Go slow, take your time, don't get anti-seize on the plug firing tip, use a torque wrench if you have access to one. Replace the hose and the bracket and you are done.

Total time is 1 hour if you are not mechanically inclined, 30 minutes if you are.

2001 Chevy cavalier It's a 2.2 litre 4 cylinder. what size of spark plug socket do I need to replace my spark plugs ? Please advise !!


When you buy the new spark plugs, take one of the plugs and get a spark plug socket to fit. The size may depend on the brand? Try 5/8 spark plug socket. Hopefully the socket for the new plugs will fit the old plugs?

Need to replace sparkplugs on 2002 ford escape


well replace spark plugs is not a hard job,when replacing spark plugs, good time to replace plug wires also.you need to replace one spark plug at a time so you wont mix up firing order. you need a spark socket, torque wrench, 3/8 ratchet wrench, 3/8 short and long extensions,you need a spark plug gap gauge.spark plug gap for 2.0 engine 0.051 the 3.0 engine spark plug gap is 0.052 - 0.056. just follow spark plug wires they will lead you to the spark plugs.warning wait until engine cool down first because removing spark plugs from hot engine could damaged the aluminum heads,use compressed to blow away debris before removing spark plugs keep debris falling into the cylinders.wear safety glasses if you use compress air and use small amount anti seize compound to the spark plug threads.good idea slip a short length rubber hose over the end of spark plug to use as a tool thread it into place.reason i use piece vacuum hose it will grip the spark plug enough to turn it, but will start to slip if the plug begin to cross thread.when installing spark plug, it should turn at least few times if spark plug start tighten before 1/4 turn thread cross threading need to back off start over dont keep turning you will stripped spark plugs threads in the head also damage spark plug threads, so be careful, good luck with job.

Need to kb\now how to change spark plugs on my 2001 sonata


Follow these steps on how to replace thespark plugs. 1. First, you turn off the Sonataengine and allow it to cool. This normally takes about 30 minutes. 2. Raise the hood and locate thespark plug cables along the side of the engine. Spark plug cables are normally1/4 to 1/2 inch thick and plug directly into the engine. 3. Grasp the cable by its boot.This is the thicker piece that covers the spark plug or spark plug well. Turnthe cable back and forth until the lock releases. Pull back on the cable toremove it. Complete the replacement process for each plug before moving on tothe next. Slide the socket, extension and wrench over the spark plug. Turn thewrench to the left to unscrew and remove the plug from the engine. Spark plugsockets have a cushion inside that grab the end of the plug to hold it inplace. 4. Clean the well and boot withthe wire brush. Do not rub hard on the well or boot or it will cause damage.Spray silicon in the boot and on the spark plug threads, so you can easilyremove the spark plug the next time. 5. Insert the socket into the welland gently thread it into the engine. Test the tension with the tester. Thetension a spark plug needs varies by plug manufacturer. Check the package tofind the correct tension. If you need more tension, tighten the spark plug. Forless, loosen or unscrew the plug. 6. Place the cable back onto thespark plug. Repeat Steps 2 through 7 for the other plugs. Work your way downone side of the engine and then down the other as you replace or clean thespark plugs. This are the things you need for the job, 16mm spark plug socket,Socket wrench with extension, Wire brush, Silicon spray, New spark plug,Tension tester

I have a 98 grand am blew a head gasket, ive had the heads reworked and new gaskets now the car doesn't start, just turns over. what could be the problem?


Check if you have spark at the spark plug. Go buy yourself one plug. Take any plug wire off plug in engine. Attach plug wire to new plug and touch a ground on engine with new plug threaded side. Have someone start engine and watch for spark. If spark exsist, look for fuel problem.

How do I repalce the spark plugs on my 2002 galant 2.4 4 cylinder engine


buy new plugs
set the gap on the new plugs
Label the plug wires (1-4)
pop the rummer cap where it goes into the cylinder head valve cover and remove the spark plug wire by grasping the shaft ot the spark wire and twisting it. Don't just pull on the wire as you can break it.
Cpat the threads on the spark plug with anti seize compund.
screw in the spark plug carefully so you don't cross thread it. Check a repair manual for torque specs; if you don't have a torque wrench, you want the spark plugs snug but not cranked down with all your strength.
Replace the spark plug wire and this is important, don't mix what wire goes where..

Where are the spark plugs


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Spark plug socket
  • Socket wrench with extender
  • Anti-seize compound
  • New spark plug
  • Tension tester tool
  1. Step 1 Raise the hood and locate the battery. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Allow the engine to cool before attempting this process. Depending on the climate, it may take 30 minutes or more to cool the engine.
  2. Step 2 Find the spark plug cables on the Kia Spectra engine of either a four- or six-cylinder variety. The number of cylinders indicates the number of spark plug cables on the engine.
  3. Step 3 Turn the cables by the boot, or cover, that connects to the engine or directly to the spark plug. Disconnect one cable and complete the replacement process before removing the other cables to ensure the cables don't cross. Pull back on the cable to reveal the spark plug.
  4. Step 4 Remove the spark plug from the cylinder well with the socket. The extender may not be needed for 4-cylinder engines. Turn the socket in a counter-clockwise motion to unscrew the plug and remove it from the cylinder block.
  5. Step 5 Use the applicator supplied with the anti-seize to spread the compound over the threads of the new spark plug. This compound allows for easy removal when you need to check or replace the spark plugs.
  6. Step 6 Screw the spark plug into the cylinder well by hand. The spark plug needs to be tight in the well but may have to be loosened after the tension test finishes.
  7. Step 7 Test the torque of the spark plug with the tension tester tool. Normally the spark plugs on a Kia Spectra need 18 to 22 ft-lbs torque. Check the Spectra model's owner's manual or the manufacturer's package because some premium or performance spark plugs use different torques.
  8. Step 8 Reconnect the spark plug wire and turn it to lock it in place. Continue replacing the rest of the spark plugs. Reconnect the battery cable after you replace all the spark plugs.

Cant find the spark plug location on 2002 4cyl tacoma


Locate the spark plug cover on the engine.On some Toyota Tacoma engines, the cover is across the top of the engine. On others, it is along the side 4 cyl. Remove the cover to reveal the ignition coils and spark plugs wires. The spark plug wires are plugged directly into the engine and the ignition coils are in the tip of the spark plug wire.
Remove the coil and wire from the spark plug. Twist and pull the plug out of the engine. Remove the spark plug from the cylinder well with a socket extender and socket wrench. Turn the wrench to the left to unscrew the spark plug from the engine.

Discard the old spark plug and apply a coat of anti-seize compound to the threads of the new spark plug.

Insert the new spark plug into the socket. Use the socket and extension to screw the spark plug into place.

Return the ignition coils and spark plug wires to the engine and turn it to lock the plug in place. Repeat the entire the process with the remaining spark plugs.

Replace the spark plug cover when all of the spark plugs are replaced.

Good luck and hope this helps and The spark plug tension may range between 11 and 15 foot pounds, depending on the size of the spark plug. The correct tension is indicated on the spark plug's packaging.
