It is possible to remove sleeves but if they are stuck on plug you WILL bend them up pretty long as you can get em back on snug enough to protect plug wire boot,who cares if they're a lil beat up.good luck

How to change spark 2002 land Rover freeLander

Open bonnet. On top of engine towards the front, is a head cover. Remove that. Remove with caution the HT cables. Get a long socket wrench for plugs and remove each one. Careful with grit that might fall into the piston sleeve. Replace sparks and button all up reverse of the removal.

Do i need a special tool to remove sparkplugs for chevy tahoe 2002

The Metal Boot comes off with the plug far as removing and installing the plugs,it is pretty straight forward, Just a spark plug socket is needed to remove the plug.....the back plug on the passenger side,back by the fire-wall is the only tough one.....its just tight back there.

....The gap of.....0.60 is for the A/C Delco Platinum plugs which is what you Tahoe came with from the factory.......The Iridium plugs should be gaped at 0.40 right out of the box.....Check the Gap to make sure......But do not attempt to re-gap them as the Iridium tip can be easily damaged.....and last don't forget the anti-seize went installing the new plugs.

Where can i find a picture of a 2002 chevrolet tahoe engine to show me where the spark plugs r at to change them out myself instead of a mechanic?

There are 4 coils mounted on each side of the engine. Follow each spark plug wire down to the boot and under there you will find the plugs.
