The oil seal for the spark plugs may need replacing. This requires a little work. You need to take out the cover of the head. Normally you should see the seals underneath the cover just surrounding the holes.

I have a 2005 mazda 6 that is not firing due to oil getting on the spark plugs.. how can I remove the oil from the holes the spark plugs screw into? or if not possible what should I do? I really need!


The spark plug tunnels of that type of engine sometimes get oil in because the cam cover or valve gear cover gaskets are leaking.

The oil should be removed before the spark plugs are disturbed to avoid it running into the cylinders and causing trouble. The majority of the oil can be mopped out with cloths poked down the holes with a screwdriver or a rod. If there is a lot it can be sucked out with a good turkey baster (with an extension) or a tube fixed to a pipette bulb.

When the majority of the oil is gone it will be time to introduce some solvent such as white spirit or brake cleaner and agitate it with the rod or a long brush until the remaining oil is dissolved and can be mopped out until almost dry.
It will then be safe to remove the spark plugs and very, very carefully complete the clean-up.

The source of the oil should be investigated and rectified before driving the car and it would be a good idea to check the crankcase breather and pcv valve operation.

How do I get compression back? Please help


You could have bad rings, valves not sealing, or worse cracked cylinder or cracked head. If it was one of the last two then you would be losing oil/water, or oil and water would be mixed. Either way it needs to go to a machine shop.

SPARK PLUG REPLACEMENT - REMOVAL PROCEDURE

1_23_2012_5_10_32_pm.jpg

1. Remove the ignition coils (lines at end this document), then return here once you have gotten the Coil
Packs off and precede with step 2 from here.
2. Clean the spark plug recesses with low pressure air. CAUTION: Wear safety glasses
when using compressed air, as flying dirt particles may cause eye injury. NOTE:
Clean the spark plug recess area before removing the spark plug. Failure to do so could
result in engine damage because of dirt or foreign material entering the cylinder head, or
by the contamination of the cylinder head threads. The contaminated threads may prevent
the proper seating of the new plug. Use a thread chaser to clean the threads of any
contamination.
3. Remove the spark plugs from the cylinder head. NOTE: Allow the engine to cool before
removing the spark plugs. Attempting to remove the spark plugs from a hot engine may
cause the plug threads to seize, causing damage to cylinder head threads.
4. Inspect the spark plugs.

INSTALLATION PROCEDURE

1_23_2012_5_11_30_pm.jpg

1. Measure the spark plug gap on the spark plugs to be installed. Compare the measurement
to the gap specifications. NOTE:
• Use only the spark plugs specified for use in the vehicle. Do not install spark
plugs that are either hotter or colder than those specified for the vehicle. Installing
spark plugs of another type can severely damage the engine.
• Check the gap of all new and reconditioned spark plugs before installation. The
pre-set gaps may have changed during handling. Use a round feeler gage to ensure
an accurate check. Installing the spark plugs with the wrong gap can cause poor
engine performance and may even damage the engine.
2. Install the spark plugs to the cylinder head. NOTE:
• Be sure that the spark plug threads smoothly into the cylinder head and the spark
plug is fully seated. Use a thread chaser, if necessary, to clean threads in the
cylinder head. Cross-threading or failing to fully seat the spark plug can cause
overheating of the plug, exhaust blow-by, or thread damage.
• Refer to Component Fastener Tightening Notice in Service Precautions.
Tighten the spark plugs to 18 N.m (13 lb ft).
3. Install the ignition coils.

IGNITION COIL(S) REPLACEMENT
REMOVAL PROCEDURE
1. Remove the air cleaner resonator and outlet duct.
2. Disconnect the engine wiring harness electrical connector (1) from the oil pressure sensor (2).
3. Disconnect the engine wiring harness retainers (1) from the power steering pump (2).
4. Disconnect the engine wiring harness electrical connectors (1, 4) from the following:
• The exhaust camshaft position (CMP) sensor (5)
• The camshaft position (CMP) actuator solenoid valve (6)
5. Disconnect the engine wiring harness retainer (2) from the camshaft cover (3).
6. Disconnect the engine wiring harness electrical connectors from the following:
• The engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor (1)
• The fuel injector harness (2)
• The ignition coils (4)
• The heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) (5)
7. Disconnect the engine wiring harness electrical connector from the intake camshaft position (CMP) sensor.
8. Carefully disengage the engine wiring harness conduit from the camshaft cover, and position aside.
9. Remove the ignition coil bolts.
10. Remove the ignition coils from the camshaft cover.

INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
1. Install the ignition coils into the camshaft cover. IMPORTANT: Ensure the ignition coil seals are properly seated to the camshaft cover.
2. Install the ignition coil bolts. NOTE: Refer to Fastener Notice in Service Precautions. Tighten the ignition coil bolts to 10 N.m (89 lb in).
3. Attach the engine wiring harness conduit to the camshaft cover.
4. Connect the engine wiring harness electrical connector to the intake CMP sensor.
5. Connect the engine wiring harness electrical connectors to the following:
• The ECT sensor (1)
• The fuel injector harness (2)
• The ignition coils (4)
• The HO2S (5)
6. Connect the engine wiring harness electrical connectors (1, 4) to the following:
• The exhaust CMP sensor (5)
• The CMP actuator solenoid valve (6)
7. Connect the engine wiring harness retainer (2) to the camshaft cover (3).
8. Connect the engine wiring harness retainers (1) to the power steering pump (2).
9. Connect the engine wiring harness electrical connector (1) to the oil pressure sensor (2).

The oil pan nut plug wont tighten down because threads are striped what do i do too fix


Most auto parts stores have a solution for this problem. Explain the situation to them, they will sell you a self-tapping drain plug that cuts new threads. This will replace your OEM drain plug. I have used them several times, they work if directions are followed. These drain plug replacements usually come in 1, 2, and 3 "oversize" sizes. Not difficult to install, not expensive. Good luck.

The dealer would replace the oil pan instead of fixing the threads.

1 spark plug is behind sterring collum on 2001 blazer cannot get enough room to thead anyideas


You can use a long small diameter hose and connect the top of the spark plug to it, then try inserting the plug when the plug is aligned with the hole. The long hose will act like a flexible extension and will allow you to make tight turns during the threading process. Worth a shot.

Cannot find a maintenance manual any where for a 2006 Madza 3. I need to know where the spark plugs are at


For Mazda Car 2005-06 Spark Plugs...

Inspection
Inspect the electrodes and ceramic insulator.Burned or worn electrodes may be caused by:

Advanced ignition timing Loose spark plug Plug heat range too hot Insufficient cooling
Fouled plug may be caused by:
Retarded ignition timing Oil in combustion chamber Incorrect spark plug gap
Plug heat range too cold Excessive idling/low speed running Clogged air cleaner element Deteriorated ignition coils
Do not adjust the gap of platinum tip plugs; replace the spark plug if the gap is out of specification. The gap should be 0.049-0.053 in. on all models except Mazdaspeed6 or 0.028-0.031 on Mazdaspeed6 models.
  1. Replace the plug at the specified interval or if the center electrode is rounded.
  2. Apply a small quantity of anti-seize compound to the plug threads, and screw the plugs into the cylinder head finger-tight.
Removal & Installation
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions section.
  2. Remove the battery cover.
  3. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  4. Remove the plug hole plate by lifting off and removing the plug hole plate from the installation areas (rubber and clips) as shown in the illustration.
  5. Remove the front suspension tower bar (joint).
  6. Remove the ignition coils.
  7. Remove the spark plugs.

To install:
  1. Installation is the reverse of removal, tighten the plugs to 8-10 ft. lbs. (10-14 Nm).
2.3L (L3) Engine

I can't get a spark plug reinstalled in my '95 Mazda B2300 2WD


you can put a little bit of oil on the treads to get it started. Do not cross tread it because it will strip the hole out and you will have to replace everything.
