5/8'' however its a special socket mae to remove an install spark plugs without damagin the porcelin (white part) of the plug, if you crack it the plugs heat rating will be affected.

I believe it is a 7/16 deep well socket. You will want to get the spark plug socket because it actually holds and protects the plug.

2001 Chevy cavalier It's a 2.2 litre 4 cylinder. what size of spark plug socket do I need to replace my spark plugs ? Please advise !!


When you buy the new spark plugs, take one of the plugs and get a spark plug socket to fit. The size may depend on the brand? Try 5/8 spark plug socket. Hopefully the socket for the new plugs will fit the old plugs?

How to change a spark plug wire or plug


The correct way of removing a plug wire on your particular car is to grab the lowest point of the spark plug boot and gently twist while pulling. once you have that out then find the correct socket size with an extension and turn the spark plug counter clockwise to remove. Install is the reverse.
The plug wire will be correctly installed when you feel a gentle click while pushing it on the new plug
Good luck!

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

this is the third time i'm posting this. take the cover between the dohc off and bend the bracket above it out of the way. then use either a socket and a piece of tubing or a spark plug socket to remove the plugs, replace, do not over tighten or cross thread, then reinstall the cover taking car to align the boots, re attach and rebend the metal bracket down.

Spark plugs


The spark plugs on the cavalier are under the 2.2 ecotec panel located on the top of the engine. There are no spark plug wires to deal with. The electronic coil pack directly attaches to the plugs with rubber seats like in a spark plug end. Then you use a deep socket ratchet to get the plugs out. Use anti-seize compound when replacing the plugs.

with a spark plug socket, goto autozone, walmart, oreillys, etc and ask for a spark plug socket... You can also just use a thin wall deep socket, there are several different sizes of spark plugs...

Need to change spark plugs and fuel filter


What motor is in the 04 Cavalier? If it’s the Eco Tech 4, you need to remove the black cover on top of the engine to access the plugs. Once you remove this cover you will see the coils and the wires for the plug are attached to this cover. Gently remove the plug wires and disconnect the electrical connector from the coils. Set this assembly aside. Using an extension and the correct size spark plug socket. Remove the plugs. With the new plugs check and verify the gap is correct prior to installing the new plugs. One the correct cap has been set, install the new plugs. It is recommend to use a piece of vacuum hose to start the threads on the plugs as to not cross thread the new plugs. One the plugs threads are started use your wrench to tighten the plugs. Do not over tighten as you can strip out the threads. Then reinstall the wires and connect up the coils, reinstall the cover and start the engine. Make sure there is no check engine light and the motor is running correctly.
