Question about Ford Falcon

1 Answer

I have a 61 ford falcon 144 ci . I can't seem to find the correct spark plug removal tool.I tried an 18mm spark plug socket then a 18mm deep well socket and it still won't fit. Is there a special tool to remove them ? I'm confused. It shouldn't be this hard.

How change spark plugs

Have a look on the following link for the socket/wrench/tool you will need:
spark plug socket Google Search

To avoid getting the ignitions leads replaced in the wrong order:
Remove ONE lead from ONE plug at a time.
Use the tool/socket to remove that plug by turning anti-clockwise.

Put the new socket in hand tight - this is to avoid cross-threading the spark plug and damaging its threads/threads in cylinder head.

When the spark plug is hand-tight/finger tight, tighten it with the socket /tool. Just 'gently tighten it up' - do not overtighten.

Replace the ignition lead and then move onto the next plug.

What size socket wrench is needed to replace plug

The most common size is 5/8" or 16mm. It has to be long / deep-well.
Other sizes are 11/16" / 18mm or even 13/16" / 21mm. Also deep-well.

Most dedicated spark plug sockets have a rubber piece inside, which gently holds the ceramic insulator.

Need to change the spark plugs for a ford falcon bf lpg 2005 model

I think you need a special long spark plug socket to reach the plugs because the plugs are deep in the cylinder head if hemi type engine, hope this helps!

Socket on spark plug

Some Japanese cars require an extra thin spark plug socket to get deep enough around the plug itself.
If your socket is normal, then try searching for a thinner socket.

How to get to the front moter mount on a murcery sable 1993

I did them at Ford, but it's been awhile. I believe you at least need to unbolt the A/C compressor. But make sure you get a swivel 18mm medium depth socket, a shallow 18mm isn't deep enough to get on the nut. And there isn't enough room to get a deep well 18mm onto the nut. They are rather difficult to do.

16mm plug spanner, a regular socket is ok so long as it is a tight fit.
Use an extender and a crossbar on the socket instead of a ratchet, that way you can keep the socket dead straight.

Chaning spark plugs 02 expedition

no special tools,this is what tools you will need:.7mm socket for the coil packs where underneath them is a deep hole and down there is the plugs---8mm socket for the fuel rail bolts(for the left side sitting in it)which i would use 1/4 inch drive for these--- 5/8 plug socket---6 inch extension---3 inch extension---ratchet---swivel---which i would use 3/8 inch drive for these---and maybe long needle-nose pliers incase the rubber boot from the coil packs come off and sticks to the plug.

What would be the best way to remove/install spark plugs with out a spark plug socket?

You could use a standard deep socket, however, a plug socket has a rubber insert that helps prevent breaking the porcelan . If necessary to do this without the correct tool, keep the socket very straight...any angle can break the plug.
