When the engine is still warm, grasp the plug wire boots with your fingers and pull them straight off. Having the plug boots warm makes them a little easier to remove.

You will need a 3/8" or 5/8" deep socket driver and rachet wrench with an extension, 4" should suffice.

Hello...I have a 2009 chevy cruze 1.8L ,some 3 months ago,the car had some pulsating and vibration during driving , so I changed the spark plugs and the problem was solved, but after about a month,the car...


Was any of the previous spark plugs fouled? Dirty? If so you need to investigate whether the problem is oil or fuel causing the fouling. Also a possibility is that you have a bad plug wire and when you changed plugs you disrupted the plug wire enough to make contact. Now possibly the plug wire is showing too much resistance causing a misfire at idle. Only way to be sure is to have the car scoped to see if the wires are proper or defective. That is unless you are the change parts and try type. In that case try a new set of wires. The reason is because at idle the voltage is not as high as it would be at higher rpm.

I want to change my own spark plug's


Instructions
    • Locate the spark plug cables along the top or the sides of the engine, depending on CR-V model. Once the engine cools, use the trim panel tool to twist the spark plug wire at the wire's boot, which is the larger rubber portion located on top of the spark plug.
    • 2Pull back on the spark plug wire to remove it from the spark plug.

    • Place the socket on top of the spark plug and turn it counter-clockwise to unscrew and remove the spark plug from the well.
    • 4Rub anti-seize lubricant onto the new spark plug threads and on the tip of the spark plug.
    • 5Insert the new spark plug into the well. Manually turn the plug clockwise to thread the spark plug into place.
    • 6Test the tension on the plug with the tension testing tool. Adjust the tension as needed. Honda CR-V spark plugs generally need a tension between 10 and 15 foot pounds. The spark plug's packaging indicates its suggested tension.
    • 7Replace the spark plug wire, turn it from side to side and lock it into place. Continue the process with the rest of the spark plugs one at a time until all of the spark plugs are replaced.

I tried changing my sparks plugs


Just a spark plug socket 5/8 or 13/16 inch available at your auto parts store; v-6 or v-8
If you can not remove the spark plug wires you need to wiggle and turn them to get them off ; be careful not to much twisting and pulling or you may damage the spark plug wires, sometimes a u shaped tool; under the boot helps .

Changing spark plug wires in 1998 camry


You aer not clear about your problem, when replacing plugs and wires all the boots need to stay in place, the larger boot goes around the spark plug, making sure the metal is secure around the tip of the plug, the oppisite end fits the distributer cap, making sure the metal at the end of the wire is securely in the hole. You said you have 3 boots, you should boots for each end of each plug wire and a plug wire for each spark plug
