Changing plugs , is there any parts that have to be removed before you take plug sout?


Sometimes a plastic cover needs to be removed. Otherwise it's just unplugging the sparkplug caps and insert the sparkplug tool to loosen the sparkplug. Make sure nothing falls into the open sparkplug hole once it's out.

I have fire, gas, and no blown fuses. ive replaced distributor, cap, button, and coil and also replaced fuel pump. Im lost dont know what to do


Did you make sure you put the sparkplug wires back in the right holes?
If so it could be a compression problem. If you have the tool you can check it yourself by removeing the sparkplug one at a time and and put the gage in the empty sparkplug hole. Have some one turn over the motor and see if your compression is right. Do this to all the cylenders to be sure. If you dont have the tool, take it to a mechanic and have it checked. He can tell what it is and what it is suppose to be. Not knowing what engine you have, I can not tell you what compression to look for. If your compression is low, the rings are gone.

How to change spark plugs


Those are as easy as they come these days. Mark each spark plug wire with a piece of tape with the cylinder # written on it, so as not to mix up the wires. Remove each spark plug wire by firmly grasping the wire by the boot (do not pull on the wire) and twist it back and forth a few times while pulling slowly. It should pop off without a great deal of effort. If it is seized and it breaks, you will have to replace the wire, or at the very least replace the terminals (if you can get some). Use an air hose and blow around the base of each spark plug to dislodge any loose dirt that could fall into the cylinders (not absolutely necessary, but a good idea). Remove each spark plug with a spark plug socket and extension and ratchet (I forget which size socket, it's either 5/8 or 13/16). Check the gaps of each new spark plug (typically around 0.035 in). re-install each new spark plug by hand (do not cross-thread them) and once you have ensured that the plug is threaded in properly, tighten the plug until it seats, and then tighten an additional 1/16 of a turn. Repeat this for the remaining plugs. Re-install wires to the corresponding spark plugs. You're done!

Can someone tell me how can I replace the spark plugs on Dodge Caravan 2005, from above?


Open the hood to access the engine compartment. Locate the sparkplugs sitting to the side of the motor. Six wires run to the motor, three on each side.

Twist the rubber boot and pull away from the sparkplugs. This will expose the sparkplug.

Unbolt the sparkplug with a socket wrench. Use a 5/8-inch deep-well socket attached to the socket wrench.

Pull the sparkplug away from the motor. Discard the sparkplug.

Screw the sparkplug into the motor by hand. Make sure it is hand-tight.

Tighten the sparkplug with the socket wrench, using the deep-well sparkplug socket.

Click the wire to the sparkplug wire to the end of the sparkplug. Gently pull the wire to ensure it clicks into place.

Repeat the procedure for the remaining five sparkplugs. Change each sparkplug one at a time.

How do i change spark plugs in 1992 buick le sabre


To change the plugs, do one at a time so not to mix up the sparkplug wires, remove plug wire from a plug, use sparkplug socket to remove the sparkplug make sure to gap new plugs, ask parts store for the gap setting they will give it to you when plugs are bought, the plug gapper is about $2.00. and that about it, the rear plugs are a little harder to get to but the same way to remove, some buicks came with metal heat sheild over the sparkplug boot in the rear cylinders make sure to reuse, you will know if you have them they will slide right off old boot.

How do i change the spark plug in a 1996 isuzu rodeo? It is not ease to pull the plug wires off of the plugs.


You have the 3.2L 6cyl ? The wire connector at each coil that is positioned above the sparkplug is a bit tricky to remove. Start with an easy to get at one-like one on engine front passenger side. There is a clip you have to push in to release the connector-it will slide out. Then remove two screws holding coil to valve cover and pull it up-it will have a long boot on it. Use a sparkplug socket and long extension to remove sparkplug. Tip: driver's side sparkplug located nearest to firewall of car is a bit tricky to get out because of steering/master brake cyl-use two short extensions-when sparkplug is unscrewed from engine-lift it up a bit-remove one extension-then lift plug out.

How to replace spark plugs for 1999 ford contour


to replace spark plugs remove spark plug wire boots. use special sparkplug socket or else you can break the sparkplug. to remove turn ratchet counterclockwise remove all four one at a time, make sure that the sparkplug gap is correct. most plugs come pregapped...read the box it will tell.you. do not overtigheten plug once it has fully seated give it a good snug....if you do one at a time you dont need to mark the spark plug wires. if you mix up the wires your car will back fire which could cause severe internal damage.

I HAD #3 SPARK PLUG BLOW OUT OF CYLINDER. HAD IT REPAIRED AND ALL NEW PLUGS, FUEL FILTERAND PCV PUT IN NOW TRUCK HAS A VERY FAINT ROUGH IDLE. ANY IDEAS


#3 sparkplug is not firing at peak performance.
The engine block sparkplug hole had to be re-threaded in order to accept an adapter for the replacement spark plug. The sparkplug is sitting "higher" in the cylinder than the others (not as efficient).
It may even be a different sparkplug altogether in order to accommodate the adapter.

Add a silicone insulator gel (AutoZone $2) inside both boot ends of the sparkplug wires and re-seat them all.
