Spark plugs are on the engine end of the ignition wires. Do each one by one so you don't mix them up. Your best picture is what you see when you look at the engine. Oil plug is likely 14mm or 15mm but can be different if anyone changed/replaced it. Just put a wrench on it and see if it fits well. Make sure the seal is on the oil plug when you put it back in and make sure the old filter gasket is on the filter, not stuck to the block before putting the new filter back on. Wipe oil on the new filter gasket to permit it to seal properly and so it will come off easier the next time you replace it.

Where is plug and tool required to remove it


Hi Anonymous:

There are several "plugs" on a vehicle engine.
Knowing which one you are looking for would help.
- Spark plug - Follow wires from where they are "bunched together" to where they spread out and are stuck on the ends of THE SPARK PLUGS. The right sized special deep socket is the correct wrench.
- Oil drain plug - located at the lowest part of the engine. You'll need to hoist the vehicle, put it on ramps, or place on jack stands to get at this.
- Frost plugs - pressed into the engine to protect it in the event that the coolant freezes. No wrench.

I need to chang plugs, wires oil change i was wondering if someone could tell me exactly what size sockets and drivers i need to get the job done easy and fast its a 2004 ford crown victoria interceptor...


the spark plug socket size is 5/8"x 3/8" drive and you need a 3/8 drive 3" or 6" extension with a 3/8 drive ratchet and a spark plug gapping tool to make sure the plugs are gapped properly.the drain plug is either a 1/2" or 7/8" wrench depending if it has been replaced due to being bad.

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

Where and how do you replace the spark plugs


You should find some wires going into the rocker covers or valve covers, they are attached to the dist coil which has 3 coils with 2 wires coming from each, follow them into your rocker covers, pull 1 plug at a time, get a 6 inch extension on your ratchet, and the right sized spark plug wrench, pull out the plug and take a peak, Most cars go a million miles on plugs now days, I haven't changed plugs in years. Unless you are burning oil, then a plug will foul. replace them with platinum tipped, if it doesn't fix the problem, it is the wires that usually cause more trouble than plugs.

I need to change the spark plugs and i dont know where to start?


Go through your spark plug wires and mark which plug it is on. Once you have done this then you can pull the wires off each spark plug. Once the plug wires are off take a spark plug socket and gently apply some pressure to loosen the spark plug. Once its loose you should be able to reach down and remove the plug by hand. Once you have the plug off grab your new plug. Make sure it has the correct gab setting for your engine size and then install the new plug. once you have the new plug in gently snug it down. Do this with the rest of your plugs. Once all your plugs are in place and snugged down then put your plug wires back on each plug (This is where the labeling comes in handy). It is also a good idea to get a good set of plug wires and just replace them while you are at it.

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.
