How to change the spark plugs on my 2009 Hyundai Sonata 4 cyl.


remove 1 spark plug wire from the plug. Find a socket that fits the spark plug and connect it to the socket wrench. Put the socket on the spark plug and turn counter clock wise until the old spark plug is removed. Check the gap on the new replacement plug ( make sure you have the correct plug first). Put the new spark plug into the hole that the old 1 came out of and turn clockwise by hand making sure it is in straight, then tighten it clockwise until tight.( WARNING: DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE PLUG OR YOU WILL BREAK IT). replace the spark plug wire. repeat the process with the other 3 spark plugs. Start the vehicle. If you are replacing the wires, take off 1 wire at a time, match up the size and replace the old with the new.

I need instructions on how to change spark plugs and wireset on a 1995 subaru impreza l 1.8


Since you are unfamiliar with this process, do these steps one spark plug at a time. Locate the spark plugs; remove the wire's connecting cap from the plug; remove the spark plug from its threaded hole (use a dedicated spark plug wrench or socket of the proper size - may be a 16mm, 5/8", or possibly but unlikely 13/16"); check the electrode gap on the new plug and install it in the threaded hole; follow the plug wire back to its individual coil (opposite end from the spark plug; remove the old plug wire and replace it with the new one of the same length ensuring the same wire routing; replace the plug wire cap on the new plug; move on to the next and repeat.

Replace spark plug's


Things you will need
Spark Plug Socket And Wrench of the correct size for your spark plugs


Basic Instructions.
Step 1
Locate your spark plugs
look for other obstructions besides your spark plug wires
if you have any other obstructions you will need to remove them as well to gain access to your spark plugs.
Step 2
Remove the spark plug wire for one single spark plug at a time.
this will insure you will not replace the wrond spark plug wire to the incorrect spark plug,
if not done this way you could change the firing order of your engine.
Step 3
With your spark plug Socket and wrench rotate the spark plug in a counter clock wise direction for removing.
Step 4
After you have removed your spark plug insert your new replacement spark Plug into your spark plug socket before inserting it into the correct location. spark plug sockets are made to hold on to the spark plug for easy removal and install.
Step 5
insert your new spark plug,
before you rotate your spark plug for tightening rotate the spark plug a 1 quarter turn in the counter clock wise direction, then start tightening the spark plug by rotating it in a clockwise direction
This will insure you will not strip the threads.
Step 6
Continue rotation your spark plug in the clock wise direction untill snug, then with just a lil more pressure tighten it up just a little more.
be sure to not put to much force on the spark plug after it has been snug, you just have to apply a little more pressure but not to much that could cause it to break.
Step 7
After tightening the spark plug replace the correct spark plug wire.
then move on to the next spark plug and follow the same instructions.

if you have any other visiable obstructions preventing you access for replacing your spark plugs you will need instructions on how to remove them parts. i have just instructed you on how to remove and reinstall the spark plugs only.

How to replace a sparkplugs for a mitsubishi montero xls 2002


    • 1 Cool the engine before attempting to remove any spark plugs.
    • 2 Remove the spark plug wires located across the top of the Eclipse model's engine. The spark plug wires connected to the spark plugs are the flat circular ends. Grab the wire around the circle and twist to unlock the wire. Lift up on the wire to remove it from the engine. Some models with ignition coils above the spark plug may require you to unhook the wire from the ignition coil to remove the wire.
    • 3 Drop the socket with the extension and socket wrench attached into the cylinder well and on top of the spark plug. Turn the socket wrench to unscrew and pull the spark plug out of the engine.
    • 4 Spray silicone spray into the cylinder well and onto the new spark plug threads.
    • 5 Insert the new spark plug into the socket with the threads sticking out. Slide the socket into the cylinder well and gently turn the wrench to the right to thread the spark plug into the cylinder head.
    • 6 Use the tension tool to test the tension or torque of the new spark plug. Set the tension to the specifications listed on the spark plug package.
    • 7 Reattach the spark plug wire to the new spark plug.
    • 8 Continue this process with the other spark plugs. Be sure to only complete one spark plug replacement at a time.

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.

Replacing rear spark plugs


Hi,

Things You'll Need: Spark plug socket and wrench

Twist and pull the spark plug wire from the leftmost spark plug on the front of the engine. Grasp the spark plug wire by the "boot" or the end of the wire that cups the plug. Avoid pulling on the wire itself.

Place the spark plug socket on the spark plug. Turn the wrench counterclockwise to remove the spark plug. Unscrew the plug until it is fully removed from the engine.

Install the new spark plug by carefully placing it in the hole by hand. Turn the spark plug clockwise, but do so only gently by hand. Ensure that the spark plug screws in gently and naturally. Stop turning it at the first sign of major resistance. Check to make sure that you have not stripped the threads. Move on to the next step only when you're sure that you've positioned the plug at the correct angle and have it threaded most of the way in.

Position the spark plug socket over the spark plug and tighten it with the ratchet. Avoid tightening it too much. It will offer increased resistance for about half a turn as the metal washer on the plug is compressed. Once it is good and snug, stop there.

Replace the wire by handling the boot of the spark plug wire. Listen for a "click" that indicates correct installation.

Use this procedure for the remaining two plugs on the front and the three plugs on the back of the engine. Remove and replace one plug at a time, to ensure that you don't mix up the wires.

Best regards.

How do I change Spark plugs?


93 park ave has a v8. Four plugs on each side. Followthe spark plugs from top of engine to spark plugs. Use a spark plug wire remover (plastic pliers) to help remove wire from plug. Mark each wire where they go. Go down to auto store and buy pugs and get a swivel spark plug wrench to fit the plugs anduse a extension with rachet to remove plugs (turn counter-clockwise to remove). Replace with new. (new plugs should screw in with fingers, then tighen with socket firmly. Not over tight. I holp this helps a little - ran out of writing space. Good luck

Cant find the spark plug location on 2002 4cyl tacoma


Locate the spark plug cover on the engine.On some Toyota Tacoma engines, the cover is across the top of the engine. On others, it is along the side 4 cyl. Remove the cover to reveal the ignition coils and spark plugs wires. The spark plug wires are plugged directly into the engine and the ignition coils are in the tip of the spark plug wire.
Remove the coil and wire from the spark plug. Twist and pull the plug out of the engine. Remove the spark plug from the cylinder well with a socket extender and socket wrench. Turn the wrench to the left to unscrew the spark plug from the engine.

Discard the old spark plug and apply a coat of anti-seize compound to the threads of the new spark plug.

Insert the new spark plug into the socket. Use the socket and extension to screw the spark plug into place.

Return the ignition coils and spark plug wires to the engine and turn it to lock the plug in place. Repeat the entire the process with the remaining spark plugs.

Replace the spark plug cover when all of the spark plugs are replaced.

Good luck and hope this helps and The spark plug tension may range between 11 and 15 foot pounds, depending on the size of the spark plug. The correct tension is indicated on the spark plug's packaging.
