SOURCE: when do spark plugs need to be changed on my 2006

Modern spark ;ugs can easily go 50,000 miles. If you think you need new plugs, go ahead and change them out. It certainly wouldn't hurt, and it might give your horsepower and fuel mileage a little boost. I would recommend using Iridium spark plugs from either NGK or Autolite. Personally, I use E3 spark plugs. They did wonders for my old '96 4.3 GM V--6. I would also invest in a premium set of spark plug wires, Don't scrimp on the wires, they are a vital link in the ignition system. A cheap set of plug wires can cause multiple misfires which would play havoc with the on board computer.

get a standard metric wrench set at Sears
combination wrenches and sockets as well
you will need most of them for this vehicle for brakes and other things later like the belt, and other maintenance items. they will pay for themselves the first time you use them on your brakes

How do I change o2 sensor on 2005 cobalt


Hi, place the Cobalt in "Park" on a level surface. Allow the Chevy to sit for 10 minutes. This will allow components to cool enough to touch but still be warm, which is ideal for replacing the oxygen sensor. Open the hood of the Cobalt and identify the oxygen sensor. Look for a white, rubber, plug-type sensor on the passenger side of the exhaust manifold; this is the oxygen sensor. Use a socket wrench paired with an oxygen sensor socket to loosen the sensor. Turn the wrench counter-clockwise until the oxygen sensor is loose. Remove the sensor from the manifold by pulling it off. The sensor will come off without much force. Insert the replacement oxygen sensor onto the manifold. Secure the sensor by pushing it into place until the sensor clicks. Close the hood of the Cobalt.
Take care

How to change spark plug on lexuse gs300 2003


Hi, You need a new Spark Plugs Spark Plug Wrench Socket wrench Extension (At least 2-3 inch) size 10 socket size 12 socket...
First thing you need to do is find out where the spark plug cover is. Once you figure that out there will probably be size 10 or/and 12 bolts honding it down. Take that off and there you will see sensors connecting to each other and holding the spark plug in the cylinders. Unplug all the sensors and pull out the circular plugs holding the spark plugs down. THey might be a little tight and hard to get out so you're going to need to give it a good tug. Once you pull them out MAKE SURE YOU DONT DROP ANYTHING INTO THE CYLINDERS. You can look down into them and see the spark plugs. Get your spark plug wrench, extension, and socket wrench and stick them down in and push so that the spark plug wrench grabs them. Just simply unscrew the plugs, pull them all out, and then put the next ones in, and tighten them down. Just connect all the sensors, and put the cover back on and you're done. Pretty simple.
Take care

How to change the spark plugs andfuel filter in a


all you need to do is get the right sized socket for the plugs and remove them after you take the plug wires off.
the fuel filter should be on a rubber hose under the car near the fuel tank thats held in by hose clamps.
take the clamps off and slide each side of the filter out of the hose and look at the flow direction and install ur new one with the same procedure with the same hose clamps and everything.

Changing spark plugs - need to remove intake manifold and should change gaskets...which ones?


To change a spark plug. 1.Disconnect the wire attached to the spark plug it would be wise to do only one at a time! 2.Take a long socket that will fit the spark plug 3.Attach to the socket wrench and turn counter clockwise until off. 4. Put the new spark plug in and hand screw until tight then turn the socket wrench clockwise until completely tight usually 1 1/2 turns. 5.Then reconnect the spark plug wire. Easy as that. Repeat steps 3-5 for the rest and remember ONE PLUG WIRE AT A TIME!

Hi!

You need New Spark Plugs, Spark Plug Wrench Socket and Wrench Extension (at least 2-3 inch) size 10 socket and/or size 12 socket.
First of all, please check where the spark plug cover is. Once you figure that out there will probably be size 10 or/and 12 bolts holding it down. Take that off and there you will see sensors connecting to each other and holding the spark plug in the cylinders. Unplug all the sensors and pull out the circular plugs holding the spark plugs down. Pull them out and make sure that you don't drop anything into the cylinderes. You can look down into them and see the spark plugs. Get your spark plug wrench, extension, and socket wrench and stick them down in and push so that the spark plug wrench grabs them. Then unscrew the plugs, pull them out and put the next ones in and tighten them down. Just connect all the sensors, and put the cover back on.

Thanks for using FixYa and do rate if found this solution helpful.
