Thread it back into the hole until you feel the socket pop free the other way ......or is it stuck because it's swollen/rusty? if thats the case use the first mentioned answer

Can i use a ruler to measure gap on spark plug


If your can see the difference between .020 (20 thousands) and .025 (25 thousandths) of an inch than you may not need a gap tool.
A $3 spark plug gap tool is a must, you can get it at any auto parts store. Also if your spark plug is stuck in the socket, get a new socket and spark plug, but if you need it now take the socket wrench off the socket and place the socket in a vice. Then with the biggest screwdriver that will fit in the socket wrench hole, place the screw driver tip on the top of the spark plug stuck in the socket and hit the other end of the screw driver with a hammer until the spark plug comes out...... get a bigger hammer. note: the old spark plug may not survive.

How to remove a stuck Spark Plug?


I don't know if this will help but have a good quality socket when doing this sort of thing. Some people buy cheap sockets and they will not fit right or they strip very easily.
Some spark plugs are hard to get out and does take a lot of work to get them loose. Make sure you are turning them to the left which is out as well If you turn to the right you will tighten them up.

The socket is stuck on the newly installed spark plug


You probably have a spark plug socket that is too large for the plug. Take the plug back out and then you can release the plug from the socket. The act of removing the plug might even unstick it from the socket. If it doesn't you can punch out the plug using the small square hole in the socket with a pin punch or similar item and hammer. A vise to hold the socket would help. Understand that hitting the top of the plug might shatter the ceramic. At least you get your socket back right? Be sure to wear eye protection and gloves. Safety first!

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.

I am writing you the method on how to change sparkplugs, you may now have an idea where spark plug is loacted.

The Ford Expedition uses eight spark plugs to accommodateits eight-cylinder engine. Replacing the spark plugs every 75,000 miles is animportant part of overall vehicle maintenance. 1. Disconnectthe negative (black) battery cable from the battery terminal. Remove thewiring harnesses from the spark plug coils. There will be four on each side ofthe engine block, which you can remove by simply pulling them out of the sparkplug coils. 2. Unscrew the 7mm bolt from each of the spark plug coils usinga socket wrench and 7mm socket. 3. Pull each spark plug coil out of the engine block. Pull themout slowly, being careful not to damage or tear the coils. 4. Use a socket wrench and spark plug socket to unscrew eachspark plug from the engine block. Once you remove these, discard them. 5. Place the new spark plugs into the engine block and tightenthem using the socket wrench and spark plug socket. 6. Slide the spark plug coils back into the engine block. 7. Bolt the spark plug coils back into place using a socketwrench and 7mm socket. 8. Reattachthe wiring harnesses to the spark plug coils. 9 .

How can I replace the spark plug for my toyota sienna 2006


Hi. Here's the procedure on how to change the spark plugs.

  • Step 1 Connect the spark plug socket to the socket extension.
  • Step 2 Open the hood and pull the spark plug wires off the top of the engine. You may need to wiggle them back and forth while pulling up on the plug wires in order to remove them.
  • Step 3 Lower the spark plug socket into the engine and push the socket over the top of the spark plug.
  • Step 4 Turn the spark plug counterclockwise with a socket wrench to loosen and remove it from your Sienna's engine.
  • Step 5 Pull the old spark plug out of the socket and insert a new spark plug into the socket with the electrodes facing out.
  • Step 6 Lower the spark plug into the engine and thread and tighten the spark plug.
  • Step 7 Slide the plug wire down into the plug well and push it over the top of the spark plug until it seals the plug. The wire should fit nice and snug over the spark plug.

    Number 5 spark plug is stuck will not come out


    Try spraying some wd-40 lubricant at the base of the spark plug and let it sit for 10 minutes or so. You may just have to force it with a breaker bar and a socket but take caution as to not strip out the cylinder head threads for the spark plug.
