Is it true on 5.4 06 that you need a special tool and only ford can change the spark plugs


Yes it is true.

The special too is to remove a broken spark plug.

It is not recommended to do anything to the spark plugs until 100K.

RECOMENDATION:

If your not a mechanic spend the money go to the Ford dealer and let them address this issue.

It will be worth it not to need to pay for a tow truck.

Hope this tip helps.

I want to replace the spark plugs and wires on my 03 impala 3.8l. There is a heat shield on th eplug. Can this shield be removed? is there a special tool to remove the wires?


The heat shield on the plug wires are there to keep the heat off the wires.I believe they are only on the rear ones.Yes they do come off.They need to be installed on the new ones.There are some special pliers that are for removing the wires but sometimes they ruin the wires.The best way to remove the plug wires is to grab and twist back and forth and out.What happens is the rubber part kind of sticks on the porcelin part of the plug and you have to twist it to break it loose.Hope this helps.Good luck.

How do I change spark plugs on a 2001 Mazda Protege es model ?


that rubber ring is the bottom of the spark plug wire boot you will have to get this out before you can get the plug out. no special tools needed except socket long extension and ratchet. just remove the wires or coil over ignition coils however your car is setup, install socket and remove the old plug.

Spark Plugs for a 2005 dodge Caravan


Sometimes spark plug boots are VERY hard to remove you can try twisting them at the spark plug as you apply upward force.The way I access rear plugs is from the underside of the vehicle. Make sure you use the correct size spark plug socket to break plugs loose.The socket is special design not to damage the plugs.Your local parts store should sell aspark plug boot remover tool that can help they should cost around $10.00

Changing rear spark plugs on an 05 Bonnevile V6


No special tools, however the hard part will be getting the plug wires off without pulling the inner contact apart. Rotate the boots on the plugs before trying to remove the wires.

you don't have to worry about a special tool if you are replacing the wires but you will need a 5/8 socket with a rubber boot and an extension and maybe a swival to remove the plugs if there is an auto zone near by they will print you out a diagram for free
