Having been in that situation before i was able to use a large flat blade srew driver to turn it out by twisting on the ground electrode. however if the threaded sectio does not turn somewhat freely you will be in aworld of hurt as you have likely heated the aluminnum up with the excessive torque causing it to melt the threads to the steel plug. you may also want to try reverse drill bits (matco make the best set in my opinion) as when it bites it tends pull whats being drilled out with out have to really drill it out.

1985 cadillac deville popping through throttle body

This poping is caused by one of to things, a crossed sparkplug wire or a bad valve, you will need to pinpoint the cylinder thats causing the pop by removing one sparkplug wire at a time until pop is gone then remove that valve cover and check rocker arms, you may find one thats broken or loose if there are no bad rocker arms or push rods then i would say a bad valve. good day

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.

2001 gti won't start, it cranks.

the first thing to do is find out whats missing, you will need to see if it has fuel going to the engine, this is done with a fuel pressure gauge, then you need to check for spark, remove a sparkplug wire from a sparkplug and with a spark tester check for spark, there could be a loss of spark or fuel and last thing may be a broken timing belt.

How do I remove the rear three spark plugs on a toyota avalon 1998

Hi, to change spark plug first remove coil over connecting clip ensuring to depress connector release. Next remove coil over retaining bolts. Remove coil over carefully directing coil toward driver side until rubber end able to flex out of sparkplug access tube. Remove sparkplug using sparkplug socket with rubber insert. Had to remove ratchet to gain enough clearance. At this point you should be able to remove sparkplug by tilting extension & socket toward drivers side of car. Then lay horizontal & remove toward passenger side of car. If unable to gain access in this manner you probably have too long an extension. Take care as not to damage spark plug coil over as they are considerably expensive.

How do I get the spark plugs out of my 1998 ford escort to replace with new ones? Also where does the pcp Valve go?

With you hood open and you are standing in front of the car sparkplug wires need to be removed,i suggest you remove them one at a time, under each wire the sparkplug is threaded into the cylinder head,using a 5/8 sparkplug socket remove the sparkplug and replace it with new properly gapped sparkplug.Note:if you remove all sparkplug wires at once the factory wires are generally numbered 1 2 3 4 the sparkplug closesed to the passenger fender is #1 and the one clossesed to the driver's fender is #4.Standing in front of vehicle the PCV Valve is located between #3 and #4 on the backside(intake side) of the engine fitted down into a rubber hose

1999 VW Passat 1.8 Turbo replaced Suction Pump Valve. It was broken. The car has a hesitation when accelerating. Feel like a vacuum leak.

If the vacuum pump was a used part did you **** on the pipe to check if it operates correctly,and then there is the throttle plate(accelerator), it needs cleaning as this causes hesitation(remove the fat black pipe on the front right and hold the plate open manualy and wipe clean with wd40 etc, dont use carb cleaner as this removes throttle plate bearing grease) as does dirty air filter, sparkplugs and like you state vacuum hoses.On my passat i replaced all vacuum hoses and clamps as they split after 5 years from heat etc.Dont waste time replacing one, do all.Clean and wd40 your ht leads and clean and inspect the sparkplugs as damp etc causes hesitation.Hows the air filter.
