How do you change the spark plugs


- Remove any plastic covers over the engine
- Locate the spark plug wires, and where they run to at the engine head.
- If your vehicle has a distributor, simply pull the plug wires off of the spark plug. If the vehicle has coil packs, you will have to pull the wire out of the coil pack (by releasing the connector) and then remove the coil packs.
- Use a spark plug socket with a ratchet and 6" extension to loosen and remove the spark plugs.
- Gap the new spark plugs to the proper specification, and then assemble everything in reverse order that you removed it.

Describe your how fix my pontiac 2000 montana Problem changing spark plugs



Inspection

Inspect for the correct routing of the spark plug wires. Improper routing may cause cross-firing. Inspect each wire for any signs of cranks or splits in the wire. Inspect each plug wire boot for tearing, piercing, arcing, carbon tracking or a corroded terminal.
If there is any corrosion, carbon tracking or arcing indicated on a plug wire boot or terminal, both the plug wire and component it was connected to should be replaced.

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 cant find spark plugs


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 . Connect the negative battery cable to the negative batteryterminal.

How do I change the spark plug of the dodge magnum 2006


· Open the hood and remove the bolts that hold the engine cover in place, if your Dodge comes with an engine cover (depending on model and year). If so equipped, pull the cover off the engine.

· 2

Grab a spark plug wire by the base of the wire and pull the wire up and out of the engine. (You may need to wiggle it back and forth while pulling up on it to get it out of the engine.)

· 3

Trace the wire back to the power distributor and pull the spark plug wire off the distributor. Make a note of the plug orientation.

· 4

Install the new plug wire in the place of the removed one. Match the new wire with the old one to make sure they have the same size. Press the plug wire over the distributor electrode and onto the spark plug firmly, so that the ends are secure. Installation is the reverse of removal procedure.

· 5

Repeat the above procedure for all the other spark plug wires. It is best to change all the spark plug wires at the same time.

WHERE ARE THE SPARK PLUGS LOCATED ON MY 1999 PONTIAC GRAND AM


Hi. here's the procedure on how to replace your spark plugs. Spark plug location is in this procedure.

  • Park the car in cool, shady area and allow the engine to cool.
  • Step 2 Remove the parts of the Grand Am engine that hinder access to the spark plugs. For a 2.2 L engine, remove the ignition coil housing. For a 2.4 L engine, remove the bolts that hold the retaining ignition coil and disconnect the electrical connector. Pull the assembly straight up and away from the engine to remove it. For a 3.1 L engine, remove the air cleaner. For a 3.4 L engine, remove the windshield wiper module cover and rotate the engine for service access to the rear spark plugs.
  • Step 3 Locate the spark plug wire and grab it by the spark plug boot. Twist the boot in both directions and pull back to remove the wire.
  • Step 4 Insert the spark plug socket over the old spark pull and unscrew it from the cylinder well. Remove the old spark plug.
  • Step 5 Lubricate the threads of the new spark plug and screw it into the cylinder well.
  • Step 6 Test the tension and adjust it to the required setting. It needs to be 15 ft-lbs. for a 2.2 L engine, 16 ft-lbs. for a 2.4 L engine, 13 ft-lbs. for a 3.1 L engine, and 11 ft-lbs. for a 3.L engine.
  • Step 7 Reconnect the spark plug wire and twist it to lock the plug in place.
  • Step 8 Repeat Steps 3 through 7 for the remaining spark plugs.
  • Step 9 Replace all of the parts that were removed from the Grand Am in Step 2 to reach to the spark plugs.

    #8 coil pac, cylinder misfire...Need diagram The mechanic says I need a coil pack and spark plug replacement for the #8 ...Need diagram to figure out which one it is. it is


    The #8 coil and spark plug are located on the drivers side rear of the engine. You will need a 7mm socket to remove the bolt that holds the coil down. After the bolt is out, pull the coil upwards and remove. Next you will need a 9/16" spark plug socket to remove the spark plug which is located in the hole that the coil came out of. The spark plugs in a 5.4L engine are sometimes frozen into the engine. If it is very hard to turn the plug, try spraying some WD-40 down the hole onto the plug and let it soak in for a while. Do not try to force the plug to turn, it will break and a special plug extractor will be needed to remove it.
    Hope this helps you!

    Where are the spark plugs located? and how do I get to them?


    There are no spark plug wires on the 2000-up Northstar engines. They use coil on plug design. First remove the engine service cover.(The Pretty plastic peice that has the Cadillac symbol on it) Then disconnect the coil connector which sits to the right of the coil and should just snap off by hand. Next If you remove the screws that holds the coil pack (8 screws) to the top of the cam covers, you will see 4 black round rubber boots that sit on top of the plugs. Pull the boots free to expose the plugs. The tops of the spark plugs sit directly underneath

    Where are the spark plugs in a 1999 Toyota Carolla and how do I replace them?


    Procedure:
    • 1. Remove the two 10 mm cap nuts on the top plastic housing over the engine
    • 2. Remove the two fasteners on the back of the housing and remove the plastic cover
    • 3. You will see four plastic blocks with four wire clips on each block. These blocks are individual coils for each spark plug.
    • 4. Use the small flat bladed screwdriver to carefully lift up on the tab that holds the electrical connector onto the block and slide the wire clip off the block.
    • 5. Remove the 10 mm bolt that holds the plastic block onto the engine. Use the needle pliers to firmly grasp the plastic screw and pull straight up to remove it 
    • 6. Loosen the 10 mm nut on end of the plastic rail that holds the wiring harness for the blocks so that the round plastic washer on the bottom of the block will not break when you pull off the block
    • 7. Carefully pull the plastic block out of the engine. There is a 4 inch tube attached to the block that extends into the engine to the spark plug. It will take some twisting and pulling but you must be careful not to catch the back part of the round plastic washer that you cannot see, on the bottom of the plastic wiring harness.
    • 8. The spark plug is at the bottom of the 4 inch hole.
    • 9. Use a 5/8 spark plug socket with a rubber collar on the 3/8" extension to remove the spark plug. The rubber collar will hold onto the spark plug as it is removed.
    • 10. The NGK website recommends making sure the spark plugs have the correct gap .044 but the spark plug box says not to adjust the gap because you might damage the needle point iridium tip. The new spark plug has a protective cardboard tube that is removed.
    • 11. Spark plugs can stick inside aluminum heads and break off when you try remove them, leaving only the threads of the plug inside the engine which will necessitate removing the head to remove broken spark plug. Putting antisiez on the threads of the new spark plug will prevent that in future spark plug changes
    • 12. Now comes an interesting choice. You can use the rubber tube over the neck of the spark plug to slowly drop it down the hole and hand tighten it or you can use the spark plug socket with the rubber collar. If you use the spark plug socket, the rubber collar will stick to the plug and you will pull off the extension, leaving the socket in the hole. A pair of long needle nose pliers will reach into the hole and remove the socket, but the rubber collar may remain on the plug and you will have to bend a piece of coat hanger with a short 90 degree tip to reach into the hole and pull out the rubber collar. The rubber collar is there to prevent you from cocking a regular 5/8" deep socket at an angle which will break off the neck of the spark plug, necessitating another 10 dollars and another trip to the auto parts store.
    • 13. After the spark plug is hand tight, give it 1/2 turn more.
    • 14. Replace the square block, being sure that the black silicone gasket on the bottom of the round plastic washer does not get bound up on the engine post where the 10 mm bolt goes. Tighten the bolt
    • 15. replace the electrical clip.
    • 16. Go to the next spark plug and repeat the procedure.
    • 17. After the last spark plug is done, be sure to re-tighten the 10 mm nut on the wiring harness rail
    • 18. Replace the plastic cover over the engine and you are done.
    Good luck and hope this helps.
