How to chang the number 1 plug behind the sterring colum


It's actually the number three plug that is behind the steering column. They make a special socket just for this plug. Wharf you spark plug socket has a hex end on it than install it and use a wrench to turn the plug out. It is tedious but it will work. If you spark plug socket does not have the hex end than you can either get one or get the special tool. If you jack up the drivers side of the vehicle by the fframe you can access all the plugs a little easier through the wheel well opening. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

Spark plg change steering column in way


Your talking about the middle plug on the drivers side on a V6 right? Just did one for a customer a few days ago. I used the plug socket and then used an offset wrench on the top of the socket and turned it about 1/8 of a turn at a time. I have taken the column off at the bottom before, but didn't want to this time. It is time consuming. Be patient and it will come out.

I have a 2005 ford freestyle the ac is fully charged the rear works great the front passenger side is ok but the drivers side is warm about 20 degrees difference between the drivers side an passenger


there is a door that directs cold or hot air behind the dashboard in order to make the passenger's side colder or hotter relative to the driver's side.
The a/c door servo may be bad, or the temperature settings for each zone are not balanced.

How do you change spark plugs on a 2003 chevy s10 zr2 4.3L v6 4x4 pick up truck?


Most of them are pretty simple. I would recommend doing them one at a time so that you don't mix up any of the plug wires. Pull off the spark plug wire (twist the boot while you pull to release the boot from the plug), then remove and replace the spark plug with a 5/8" spark plug wrench and reconnect the plug wire (put dielectric grease inside the book if it looks dry in there). Do all three (two, four, six) on the passenger side. Now, move to the drivers side. The number one (front) and five (back) will be the same as the others. The number three (middle) is a little more challenging. You will either need to disconnect the steering shaft or use a wide angle swivel on your socket to be able to gain access to this plug. If you choose to disconnect the steering, there is a 10mm bolt, under the plastic housing, that connects the steering shaft to the steering gear. I would recommend a swivel though because it is a tedious job to get the steering put back together straight. Anyway, it's not too hard, just make sure that you only do one at a time. Good Luck!

Spark plug removal for 1996 Chevy S-10 Pick-up


It take's about 10 min to remove and replace that plug, You need a spark plug socket with a built in swivel and extension. All the plugs should be removed from going through the wheel well by just moving the slash guard out of the way. With the number #3 plug, (drivers side center) Your going to have to use the swivel socket to break loose the spark plug then remove by hand, there is not enough room for the socket and plug to be removed so it needs to be removed by hand and installed by hand too. Once the new plug is installed you can torque it by working the socket back on and then the extension. Good luck and hope this helps, all the other plug can be replaced through the wheel wel; without removing any other thing un less your a larger person and would like to remove the wheel for more room or just by jacking the S10 up but the front frame. Keep me posted and careful not to break a plug.
