Try undoing the the plug this should free the socket (wrench) and allow you to refit it. A length of hose pipe fitted to the plug when you first screw it in will help ensure you do not cross thread the plug.(If this is why the wrench is stuck you may have to seek proffesional help). Once the plug is correctly located you can then use the wrench to tighten fully.

You must remove the Coil connector rack and under the coil rack are the individual coils for each spark plug, carefully lift them out, t wist them back and forth to break the rubber boot seal on the top of the spark plugs which are down in well under the coils the valve cover, the ignition coil connector rack is held down by two machine screws, 10mm head I think. You will need a medium 3/8" drive socket wrench extension to get the plugs out and of course a 5/8" spark plug socket and ratchet wrench. Below is a picture of the coil connector rack.

I'm only getting spark out of one of the coil packs and the car turns over put won't start, please help me. Thank you


Try switching the ignition coil with the other coil and plug it in and check for spark again. If it works in the other coil location, then you need an ignition coil. Your engine is bad for valve cover gasket leaks which deteriorate the spark plug wires, so if you are going to put in plugs and wires with the new coil, I would recommend replacing the valve cover gasket and spark plug tube seals(included with the valve cover gasket set).

How do i remove valve cover on toyota Rev 4


The bolts for the valve cover are atop the spark plug chambers. Locate all 4 spark plug wires, remove them and you will notice large bolts around the top part of the spark plug chamber. You may use an adjustable wrench to loosen. It is very easy and takes about 15mins to perform.

    How do I locate and change the spark plugs on the 1998 Oldsmobile 88?


    There will be 6 spark plugs. 3 at the front of the car between the engine and the radiator. 3 on the other side of the engine close to the firewall. You can follow the spark plug wires to locate each plug. The engine is transverse mounted, or sideways. It can be difficult to plugs on this type of engine because of clearance problems. I use a special spark plug socket that is extra long. Instead of using a ratchet wrench, I use a 7/8 inch ratcheting box end wrench on the socket. The socket has a rubber insert to hold on to the plugs after they have been removed from the engine. Be careful when removing the spark plug wire. They get stuck on the plugs, and pulling on the wire will damage it. If you don't have a tool designed for removing spark plug wires, twist the boot, or the big end of the plug wire that slips over the end of the spark plug. Once is is loosened up, you can pull it off the spark plug. Pull on the boot, never the wire. Only remove one wire at a time to avoid getting the wires crossed. To install the plugs, get a 6 inch length of rubber vacuum hose that will fit tightly on the end of the spark plug. Use this as a handle to install the spark plug into the engine. Once the spark plug is threaded in to the engine, pull the hose off the end of the plug and use the socket and ratcheting wrench to finish tightening.

    How do I remove the right hand (rear) valve cover on my 1998 Lincolne Continental?


  • Open the hood. Pull up on the push pins that hold the engine cover in place. Remove the engine cover.
  • 2 Unbolt the 8 mm bolts on the thin plastic cover that sits on top of the valve cover, using the socket wrench.
  • 3 Pull off the cover to expose the coil packs.
  • 4 Unplug the coil pack by removing the bolt that holds it in place and pull up on the pack to remove it from the engine.
  • 5 Unbolt the spark plug using a spark plug socket and socket wrench. You'll need to use the socket extension to reach the plug down in the plug well.
  • 6 Carefully thread the new spark plug and tighten it. Hold onto the end of the socket extension with your fingers and start the threading process "by hand." It's easy to cross-thread the spark plug, so be careful. Once you have it started, you can tighten it down with a socket wrench. The rest of the installation is the reverse of removal.
