1996 CBR 600 F3 Removing Spark Plugs

I have two F3s, and cannot get a spark plug wrench in the head of one of them. The plug camber is tapered. It seems to guide the plug wire in, yet there is no clearance for the socket to fit around the plug nut. The tapered wall does not seem to be an inserted piece of metal, but maybe it is.

How do I get the plugs out?

    Thanks! I was starting to think I was doing something wrong. The special wrench is on order from my local Honda shop. If it works it will be worth the $16.

    The Honda socket worked great. Accessing the 2nd plug in from the starboard side was a trick, but the Honda tool worked.

There is a special plug wrench for this. The socket is very thin and narrowly fits in the hole. The plug cap has a rubber grommet that seals the tube.

Do i nee a certain tool to get to the spark plugs in a 2001 chevy metro

There are no "special" tools required. Here is how you would do it:

NOTE: This engine is equipped with an aluminum cylinder head. Allow the engine to cool before removing spark plugs. Removing the spark plugs from an engine at operating temperature may damage the spark plug threads in the cylinder head. Also be sure to clean any dirt or debris from around spark plug holes prior to removing spark plugs.

I also recommend putting a small amount of anti-seize compound on the threads of the spark plugs when installing. Be careful not to under or over-tighten because cylinder head damage could result. If you have access to a torque wrench, the specification is 11 foot pounds.

  1. Disconnect the ignition coil electrical connectors.
  2. Carefully release the number 1 spark plug wire from the clip on the number 2-3 ignition coil.
  3. Remove the 2 bolts from each ignition coil.
  4. Remove the number 1 spark plug wire and the number 1-4 ignition coil from the spark plugs.
  5. Remove the number 2-3 ignition coil and the number 3 spark plug wire from the spark plugs.
  6. Remove the spark plugs from the cylinder head.
  7. Reverse proceedure to install.

It might be a good idea to flush everything out with clean oil. And maybe clean the oil filter. And clean the crankcase and stuff.

Bike wont turn over

I have a 1996 cbr 600 f3 and when I first bought it used it would not turn over for the life of it. It turned out that a major problem was the spark plugs needing to be replaced. Thats the first thing to do. Next clean out those carbs with some good carb cleaner.
