What tools are needed to change spark plug?

I'm sure this is a trick question but you will need a spark plug wrench or a deep socket of the appropriate size for your plug. They do vary in hex size. If you look in the handbook it will tell you the correct plug. Take that info to a small machinery dealer and you can check a wrench against the correct plug.

I am pretty sure the plug is 12X125 but you should take one out to make sure, there are a few spark plug kits available i use HELI-COIL for repairing threads my choice. and the coils come in 3 lengths.

Spark plug is thread is stripped---what can i do?

I am not sure what size the spark plug is,but take a plug to a tool supply company and ask them for tap the same size as the plug,turn the tap slowly into the plug hole,and it should pick up the thread,don't turn the tap in too far as you don't want to damage the piston. In fact if you pull the starter cord very slowly, you should be able to see when the piston is further down the cylinder,then it should be ok,rgds

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.

Loosing spark plug

Very, very difficult re-threading an engine block. Not impossible, but very difficult and not usually performed by the DIY. That said take one of your spark plugs down to your nearest hardware store, one that sells loose nuts & bolts. Try screwing the spark plug into nuts of the proper size until you "match" the thread pattern. Do be afraid to ask for assistance from one of the experienced clerks (its free). The matching thread pattern on the nut will tell you the proper thread size. There are at least a couple different thread sizes and patterns. You may or may not be able to get th tool to clean the threads at the same location. My guess is that they will have the smaller sizes, and you may need to find a more specialized store to find the larger size tools.

you will need the tool made for pulling the boots off but then all you need is a 3/8 rachet ,about a foot long extension, a universal , then probably 13/16 spark plug socket <could be peanut plug depending on the manifaturer of the plugs> I recomend using bosch or ngk plugs. intake removeal is not needed ....will clear all plugs with intake on but may need to unplug a couple injectors for clearance but don't forget to plug them back in

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.
