Cannot figure out the size of the socket wrench needed to remove spark plugs. It needs like a slim socket to get it in the socket well.

You are always best off using the wrench that Honda supplies in the tool kit. It is designed to fit in your motorcycles head and has a grabber to lift the plug out of the spark plug hole. Provided a previous owner did not keep the tool kit or forget to put the spark plug wrench back in the kit . If you do not have a tool kit , you can purchase one at a Honda dealer or , if they want too much for the kit , you can order the spark plug wrench by itself , probably for around $10.

What size socket do i use to remove the spark plug


You use a spark plug wrench. There are very many spark plugs but only two common sizes of wrench.

You did not say anything about make, model or year. Go to any auto parts store and ask them to look up the plug. Then have them look up the wrench and buy it.

How to change spark plug on lexuse gs300 2003


Hi, You need a new Spark Plugs Spark Plug Wrench Socket wrench Extension (At least 2-3 inch) size 10 socket size 12 socket...
First thing you need to do is find out where the spark plug cover is. Once you figure that out there will probably be size 10 or/and 12 bolts honding it down. Take that off and there you will see sensors connecting to each other and holding the spark plug in the cylinders. Unplug all the sensors and pull out the circular plugs holding the spark plugs down. THey might be a little tight and hard to get out so you're going to need to give it a good tug. Once you pull them out MAKE SURE YOU DONT DROP ANYTHING INTO THE CYLINDERS. You can look down into them and see the spark plugs. Get your spark plug wrench, extension, and socket wrench and stick them down in and push so that the spark plug wrench grabs them. Just simply unscrew the plugs, pull them all out, and then put the next ones in, and tighten them down. Just connect all the sensors, and put the cover back on and you're done. Pretty simple.
Take care

How to change spark plugs... 2003 ES300


Hi!

You need New Spark Plugs, Spark Plug Wrench Socket and Wrench Extension (at least 2-3 inch) size 10 socket and/or size 12 socket.
First of all, please check where the spark plug cover is. Once you figure that out there will probably be size 10 or/and 12 bolts holding it down. Take that off and there you will see sensors connecting to each other and holding the spark plug in the cylinders. Unplug all the sensors and pull out the circular plugs holding the spark plugs down. Pull them out and make sure that you don't drop anything into the cylinderes. You can look down into them and see the spark plugs. Get your spark plug wrench, extension, and socket wrench and stick them down in and push so that the spark plug wrench grabs them. Then unscrew the plugs, pull them out and put the next ones in and tighten them down. Just connect all the sensors, and put the cover back on.

Thanks for using FixYa and do rate if found this solution helpful.

Need to change sparkplugs on a Nissan Maxima


Tools : Socket Wrench
Socket Wrench Extentions
Sparkplug Wrench Attachment
8mm Socket
12mm Deep Socket
4mm Hex Tool
Phillips Screwdriver (Optional)
A Bowl(cereal bowl)*to keep all the screws and washers or anything small from going to far from you A box top(from a paper box or file box)*keep coil packs away from dirt or anything to dirty them

For a Maxima 4th Gen (95-99) i personally, and it is recommended, use NGK' Spark Plugs. Could go to your autozone/kregans/Napa etc to get them. BKR5EIX-11 you can use those its a bit pricey but they last a little longer and a bit of better spark. If not BKR5EGP will work okay to. You really don't want to use cheaper ones because of faster waste on spark plugs. Get also some additive for the spark plugs so they don't stick. you can ask them at the auto part store to show you it or if they have a small kinda sample bag. Once you get ready and your car is not hot anymore your going to pop of the lid where it says Nissan V6 3000etc. it comes off with the hex 4mm tool. Under there you will find 3 of the coil packs. your going to need the 8mm to take it off. Be sure to be real careful with the removal of them because they are not sensitive but they will cost you a pretty penny if you do loose them. Make sure you keep them in the same order you took them off (for example 1 the one to the right, keep the coil pack on the right so it is put back in the same spot.) Then after the removal get a flash light and see if any rubbers came of from the coil pack or if there is anything possibly stuck there. If there is get a metal hanger bend it and shape to take off if needed a "bootleg" tool. Once the coil pack is off and its clear take the socket wrench and the extension, should be a really long one i forgot exactly the size but should be at least a foot long, and attach the right size spark plug socket, when searching for the socket at the auto part store just when the spark plug is given take it and go to the location of tools and figure the right size(i recommend the ones called spark plug socket because they have a magnet so it wont loosen up or a type of rubber to keep it snug), then slowly take out the spark plug. Repeat for those 3 and put back in, after also putting the application for the spark plug, and make sure they are tight but not as tight as if you do not want to remove them, then put back to cover then onto the next 3. Max sure you put all the screws on and etc. the next 3 are found in the far back part of the engine. They are not the 3 that are close to the cover you removed. Do the same steps and make sure you don't lose screws or anything that will end up making you look for at night.
