They can be a pain in the ---, you need to get the boot to turn on the plug to "break the seal" that years of heat has formed, once they turn freely the wires will come off pretty easy. There are several specialty pliers made just for this purpose available at most parts stores

No spark to engine 1991 ford pickup


It can be faulty or dirty spark plug itselfd.Also for reference get the fuel level checked.Is the fuel tank is empty or near to empty.
Try cleaning the spark plugs and then see if that is helpin.On some cases the black carbon layer gets collected on the spark plugs and that causes the problem,so cleaning the plugs help.But if its not helping,then spark plug has to be replaced.Spark plugs get power from ignition coil to ignite sparks.If ignitioncoils are faulty then also there will no spark.--------------

How to change spark plugs in a 2001 chevy impala 3.8 l v six


The main problem with the 3.8L plugs are the back 2 plugs on the passenger side.
It can be done without moving the engine, but extremely difficult.

The best thing to do is tilt the motor a little. It's easier than it sounds. Most people use a tiedown strap to roll the engine forward, after you remove the top motor mounts (just behind the radiator).

I prefer to use a floor jack and a piece of wood under the oil pan. Remove the upper motor mounts and jack the engine up a little to roll it forward towards the radiator. The rear plugs should be accessible.

Iam having a miss fire every time i start my car on my 2001 chevy impala how do i set the timing with out taking it to the dealer i changed the plugs and the wiring and the pressure regulator still nothing...


The timing is not settable in a traditional sense of the days of distributors. The spark timing is controlled by the computer. If the computer is getting a bad signal, your spark timing will be off. Generally, a mis-fire isn't caused by bad spark timing. A sticking fuel injector, a bad or improperly seated spark plug wire, or a bad sensor will cause your mis-fires.

I want to replace the spark plugs and wires on my 03 impala 3.8l. There is a heat shield on th eplug. Can this shield be removed? is there a special tool to remove the wires?


The heat shield on the plug wires are there to keep the heat off the wires.I believe they are only on the rear ones.Yes they do come off.They need to be installed on the new ones.There are some special pliers that are for removing the wires but sometimes they ruin the wires.The best way to remove the plug wires is to grab and twist back and forth and out.What happens is the rubber part kind of sticks on the porcelin part of the plug and you have to twist it to break it loose.Hope this helps.Good luck.

2003 CHEVY IMPALA/ REAR SPARK PLUG REMOVAL


It makes it a lot easier if you move the alternator out of the way. some times you can get to them from the bottom of the car. When you get to the plug wires twist them to get them lose from the spark plug. Make sure you grab the end of them. don't twist just the wire.

Spark plugs replecement


I replaced my spark plugs just recently on our V-6, hope you have long thin hands. The plugs & coils on the front half are under the decorative cover. Remove with an allen wrench. Take off the coil & disconnect the wire connections (Note: these coils are fro the front and rear plugs, that way you do not have rear coils to remove, thank god). Pull out the plug wire cap, use the cap not the wire, its easy on the front.....the back half gets fun. Use an extension on your plug removal socket and take out he plug. Replace the plug and put it all back, repoeat for the front three. The back three are located behind the intake manifold, gonna have to do a lot of feeling and reaching around the intake. Again remember pull on the cap not the wire, if you pull the wire out.........gonna have to get new ones. The left most rear plug was the hardest for me to reach lots of stuff in the way, A few choie words and some beer and after a while I got it. Have fun every thing went well after I got it out.

2001 Chevrolet Impala-gears changing hard


dont listen to this guy never flush your transmission thats a quick way to kill it. do a pan drop fluid filter change. refill with dexron 6. but ill tell u now ur problem is most likely the PRESSURE CONTROL SOLENOID in your transmission. may or may not throw a CEL. causes harsh shifting and slipping etc very common on the 4t65e trans. can happen any time and usually symptoms most obvious when engine reaches operating temp

Tune up on cown and country (chrysler)


I just changed the rear spark plugs on my 1997 Chrysler Town & Country this weekend. It took me about 7 hours to do everything. When you replace the rear spark plugs, its a good item to replace everything i have listed below. Listed below are the items i changed while i was in there:

Valve Cover Gaskets
All 6 sparks (the rear are the hardest) I used the Bosch Plat. +4
Intake manifold gasket (only cost $3-4)
Throttle body gasket.
Air filter
Spark Plug Wires

I also bought some throttle body cleaner and sprayed the throttle body to clean it out. When the throttle body is dirty your van can stall.
I took pictures of everything i took apart, which i can email you to help you out.

Thank You,
Nip
