How do you change spark plugs
If you got a CAR and not a truck, there are a few things you need to pay attention to when replacing spark plugs.
You need to make sure your spark plugs are the issue for whatever the problem is.
Take a 16mm SPARKPLUGS spanner (it's a special sort of tool that you buy in the shop, unless you have it, don't bother to try with anything else, or your could do some damage), unplug one of the cables attached to one of the sparkplugs (make sure you don't unplug more that one, so you won't mess the order), take your magic tool (sparkplug socket spanner or whatever it is called) fit it on top of the sparkplug, (listen for the clicking) and then twist it left until the sparkplug is out.
Have a look to your sparkplug, and see if there is any carbon on it (if it's black, it has to be replaced/sandpapered)
repeat the operation to the other (alledgedly 3) sparkplugs, naking sure you DO NOT MESS UP the order of the cables that connect to the sparkplugs.
If finally you've decided it is time to replace the sparkplugs, under NO circumstances, replace less than ALL of them. (unless you replace them on the car of someone you don't like)
