This could be a few different things.

  1. First the stator contains a lighting coil and a sorce coil.(If just the sorce coil is bad you will get no spark but have lights) (if just the lighting coil is bad,you will get spark,but no lights)
  2. If the CDI is bad you can have lights with no spark as well.
  3. If the coil is bad,you can have lights without a spark.
  4. If the end of the spark plug wire is damaged,you can have light without a spark.
So,Go buy a spark plug tester and check to see if you have power at the spark plug cap while turning the motor over.
if not,start checking the items above.
If you do have power,replace the plug,The tool is 18mm and you can find it it under the seat in the air box area,inside the honda tool kit.

2001 Chevy cavalier It's a 2.2 litre 4 cylinder. what size of spark plug socket do I need to replace my spark plugs ? Please advise !!


When you buy the new spark plugs, take one of the plugs and get a spark plug socket to fit. The size may depend on the brand? Try 5/8 spark plug socket. Hopefully the socket for the new plugs will fit the old plugs?

Spark plug cable is broken. The wire in the cable is still attached to the spark plug. I've tried pulling it but it is very tightly attached to the spark plug. I cannot find the appropriate socket...


Get a suitable pair of plyers, grip the plug wire where it is thick, on the jacket that is on the plug, and pull hard. Maybe twist a little, but not sideways, as you risk breaking the plug. It should come off.
What may happen is that you will get all the rubber, and the metal locking tap will stay on the plug. Then use a pair of needlenose plyers to remove it.

The plug size is usually a 13/16 or a 5/8.

Don't really worry if you break the ceramic part of the plug, you can just remove what is left with the socket, and put in a new plug.

How do you properly replace spark plugs in a 96 dodge stratus?


pull off plug grabbing it as close to spark plug as you can. Using socket rotate counterclockwise and remove plug. Be careful putting plugs back in and thread by hand first. Then torque as plug box says as it depends on if you have a washer or not.

What size spark plug socket do i need for my 1985 sp600 and where can i get it?


Hello, I don't know what size the socket you will need, but an easy way to find out is buy the spark plug(s) that is recommended for your bike, then go to an auto parts store with your plug, and find out what size socket you will need.

Directions for changing spark plugs on a 1999 Mitsubishi montero


Changing plugs can be rather simple or very difficult based on the ability to access the plugs. If there is alot of room, get yourself a rachet and plug socket, and starting with one plug, remove the plug wire, remove the plug, and replace. Install new plug, tighten, and install plug wire. Move on to the next plug. By doing them one by one, you reduce the chance of crossing plug wires, ect. Its easiest to start with the drivers side front, and end in the passengers side rear. That way you know you got to all of them. Good luck.22

Won't stay running


Every year the spark plug must be replaced on chainsaws for the best performance.

So your current plug is probably fouled or has an incorrect gap from last years use.

Record your chainsaw's make and model number then go to your local large hardware store and to the lawn area, they will have a replacement spark plug. And if you don't have a ratcheting socket wrench set with spark plug removal socket, this is a great time to get one. the size will be 5/8 inch.


Always use Safety glasses and ear protection.

Feels like my rav4 is running on 3 cyl. so i want to check my plugs. at what milage should i change them and what size socket?


60,000 miles is the replacement interval, and when you replace them, buy plugs from a dealer. "Aftermarket" plugs do not work well, sometimes, they make it run worse.
