Hesitating on a 2006 Buick Lacrosse


this is for a 3.6L engine, should be the same either way. doesnt seem extremely difficult

  1. Turn the ignition OFF.
  2. Remove the ignition coil.
  3. Use compressed air in order to remove debris from the spark plug cavity.
CAUTION: Refer to Safety Glasses and Compressed Air Caution in Service Precautions .

NOTE: Clean the spark plug recess area before removing the spark plug. Failure to do so could result in engine damage because of dirt or foreign material entering the cylinder head, or by the contamination of the cylinder head threads. The contaminated threads may prevent the proper seating of the new plug. Use a thread chaser to clean the threads of any contamination.
  1. Remove the spark plug.
NOTE: Allow the engine to cool before removing the spark plugs. Attempting to remove the spark plugs from a hot engine may cause the plug threads to seize, causing damage to cylinder head threads.

INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
  1. Ensure that the spark plug gap is equivalent to the spark plug gap specification. Refer to Ignition System Specifications.
NOTE:
  • Use only the spark plugs specified for use in the vehicle. Do not install spark plugs that are either hotter or colder than those specified for the vehicle. Installing spark plugs of another type can severely damage the engine.
  • Check the gap of all new and reconditioned spark plugs before installation. The pre-set gaps may have changed during handling. Use a round feeler gage to ensure an accurate check. Installing the spark plugs with the wrong gap can cause poor engine performance and may even damage the engine.
  1. Install the spark plug.
NOTE: Be sure that the spark plug threads smoothly into the cylinder head and the spark plug is fully seated. Use a thread chaser, if necessary, to clean threads in the cylinder head. Cross-threading or failing to fully seat the spark plug can cause overheating of the plug, exhaust blow-by, or thread damage.

Tighten the spark plug to 20 N.m (15 lb ft) .
  1. Install the ignition coil.

Are ACDelco 41-942 Spark Plugs the proper plugs for the 1996 GMC JIMMY 4WD V6 , are they pre gaped and what should the proper gap be?


they should be the 41-932 plugs. AC Delco
gap should be 0.060 inch.
Check the gap before installing any plug. You never know if they were damaged in shipping before the part store got them, or if some idiot employee at the store attempted to juggle them while bored one day and damaged them by dropping them.

Did tune up on my 91 ford f150 302 5.0L V8 4x4 pick up which included s[ark plugs and wires, cap and rotor, oil change, new oil and air filters...now it is riding rougher and worse gas mileage than before?...


did you properly "gap" the spark plugs? many spark plugs have to have the ends properly "gapped" before installation, by using a "gapping" tool/wheel to properly space the arc gap to the correct distance.

if the plugs were properly gapped, or already came pre-gapped out of the box for your specific vehicle, then you may have air getting into the cylinders around the spark plugs. were you careful to properly tighten the spark plugs straightly into place, or is there a chance that you left one loose, or, even worse, cross-threaded one of the spark plugs?

Need do know the spark plugs gap


If you're replacing the spark plugs in your car engine, you'll need to set the gap before reseating the spark plug. The gap is the distance electricity arcs between the ground electrode and center electrode. The gap must be set correctly to ensure maximum performance. Here's how to set the gap of a spark plug.

  1. Remove the spark plug wires. Use a socket wrench to remove the spark plugs from their chambers.
  2. Clean the spark plug if you are not replacing it with a new one. Remove all dirt and debris from the spark plug.
  3. Check the owner's manual for your car (or any appliance with spark plugs) to find out the recommended gap setting.
  4. Use a gap tool to check the gap of the spark plug. Slip the tool between the ground electrode and center electrode. The gap tool should fit snugly at the recommended gap width indicated on the tool.
  5. Push the tool between the electrodes a few times to ensure proper gap. If the gap is too wide, push the ground electrode firmly against a flat surface to narrow the gap and then check again with the gap tool.
  6. Repeat Step 5 as necessary until you reach the correct gap. Reseat the spark plug and reattach the spark plug wires
Good Luck

Cannot find a maintenance manual any where for a 2006 Madza 3. I need to know where the spark plugs are at


For Mazda Car 2005-06 Spark Plugs...

Inspection
Inspect the electrodes and ceramic insulator.Burned or worn electrodes may be caused by:

Advanced ignition timing Loose spark plug Plug heat range too hot Insufficient cooling
Fouled plug may be caused by:
Retarded ignition timing Oil in combustion chamber Incorrect spark plug gap
Plug heat range too cold Excessive idling/low speed running Clogged air cleaner element Deteriorated ignition coils
Do not adjust the gap of platinum tip plugs; replace the spark plug if the gap is out of specification. The gap should be 0.049-0.053 in. on all models except Mazdaspeed6 or 0.028-0.031 on Mazdaspeed6 models.
  1. Replace the plug at the specified interval or if the center electrode is rounded.
  2. Apply a small quantity of anti-seize compound to the plug threads, and screw the plugs into the cylinder head finger-tight.
Removal & Installation
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions section.
  2. Remove the battery cover.
  3. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  4. Remove the plug hole plate by lifting off and removing the plug hole plate from the installation areas (rubber and clips) as shown in the illustration.
  5. Remove the front suspension tower bar (joint).
  6. Remove the ignition coils.
  7. Remove the spark plugs.

To install:
  1. Installation is the reverse of removal, tighten the plugs to 8-10 ft. lbs. (10-14 Nm).
2.3L (L3) Engine
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions section.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Remove the ignition coils.
  4. Remove the spark plugs.

How to replace sparl plugs on a Jeep Cherokee?


Hello, I hope this info helps...(subytech1)...REMOVAL
In this engine, each individual spark plug is located under each ignition coil.

  1. Prior to removing spark plug, spray compressed air around base ofignition coil at cylinder head. This will help prevent foreign materialfrom entering combustion chamber.
  2. On this engine each individual ignition coil must be removedto gain access to each spark plug. Refer to Ignition CoilRemoval/Installation.
  3. Check condition of coil O-ring and replace as necessary.
  1. Inspect spark plug condition. Refer to Spark Plug Conditions.
CLEANING
Theplugs may be cleaned using commercially available spark plug cleaningequipment. After cleaning, file center electrode flat with a smallpoint file or jewelers file before adjusting gap.

CAUTION: Never use a motorized wire wheel brush to clean sparkplugs. Metallic deposits will remain on spark plug insulator and willcause plug misfire.

ADJUSTMENT

Setting Spark Plug Gap - Typical
Check spark plug gap with a gap gauge tool. If the gap is not correct,adjust it by bending ground electrode. Never attempt to adjust gap bybending center electrode.

INSTALLATION

CAUTION: This engine is equipped with copper core groundelectrode spark plugs. They must be replaced with the same type/numberspark plug as the original. If another spark plug is substituted,pre-ignition will result.

Special care should be taken when installing spark plugs into cylinderhead spark plug wells. Be sure plugs do not drop into plug wells asground straps may be bent resulting in a change in plug gap, orelectrodes can be damaged.

Always tighten spark plugs to specified torque. Over tightening cancause distortion resulting in a change in spark plug gap or a crackedporcelain insulator.

  1. Start spark plug into cylinder head by hand to avoid cross threading.
  2. Tighten spark plugs to 27 Nm (20 ft. lbs.) torque.
  3. Before installing coil(s), check condition of coil O-ring andreplace as necessary. To aid in coil installation, apply silicone tocoil O-ring.
  4. Install ignition coil(s). Refer to Ignition Coil Removal/Installation.
