How to remove the spark plug and cleaning proceedure

Use the correct size plug spanner. Take off the lead and unscrew the plug. Clean it with a soft wire brush and carefully set the gap to .015 inch by carefully bending the side terminal. Screw the plug back in until it is tight. Do NOT overtighten or you will strip the plug's screw thread.

How do you replace the third brake light on a 1997 chevy cavalier convertible?

There are two screws that hold it in, remove them (phillips head most likely)

gently remove the light (may need to use a flat head screw driver and a rag to gently pry it out)

with the light all the way out, twist out the bulb socket.

If you are just replacing the bulb, remove the old bulb, insert a new one, and repeat the steps in reverse order. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN the screws.

Hope this helps

Broken primer bulb, i cant get the cover off to replace the bulb

Look for recessed screws that hold the top cover on. Sometimes they use torx screws or allen heads, so you might need a different tool than a standard screwdriver. If the cover edge is under another part of the housing, you will need to remove that part first. Be careful to note where the screws came from, some are specific lengths. When putting them back in, don't overtighten. Unfortunately, some are just screwing into plastic, and can easily strip out the hole if overtightened.

Oil leak from small round cover held in place by 2 socket head cap screws on yamaha V -twin 1100 front cylinder

sounds like a tappet cover, it will have a "o" ring seal.

This is a very simple repair, purchase a new seal from yamaha, remove the two screws and replace seal, make sure everything is clean when you reassemble. you dont need to overtighten the screws to much

How to replace throttle position sensor on a 1995 pontiac grand prix gtp

Remove all parts to access the throttle-body, typically the sensor is on the side with 2 screws.  Remove the wired plug and then the two screws.  Assembly is the reverse being careful to fit the flat piece of the throttle-body into the groove of the sensor. Do not overtighten.
Replace connector and other parts.
Typically the sensor is on the drivers side of the throttle body. May be a torx screw, or phillips (star).
Good luck.

Drain screw

He, if the repair was done within their warranty period, try calling their service department. It should be covered...beyond that, I would say that someone either overtightened or cross threaded the drain screw. You might warm up (but not fully presurize) and see if you can loosen it 1/4 turn counter clockwise (no further) and let it cool before removing.
