Spray a squirt of WD-40 down the plug hole and work the plug a bit each way to allow it to work past the thread . Keep applying the WD -40 until you get it out . Check that you have the correct reach plug as this happens if the thread is too long and the threads become filled with carbon .

Spark plug wrench is stuck on plug and it won't budge. Take the valve cover off???


Try undoing the the plug this should free the socket (wrench) and allow you to refit it. A length of hose pipe fitted to the plug when you first screw it in will help ensure you do not cross thread the plug.(If this is why the wrench is stuck you may have to seek proffesional help). Once the plug is correctly located you can then use the wrench to tighten fully.

Can i use a ruler to measure gap on spark plug


If your can see the difference between .020 (20 thousands) and .025 (25 thousandths) of an inch than you may not need a gap tool.
A $3 spark plug gap tool is a must, you can get it at any auto parts store. Also if your spark plug is stuck in the socket, get a new socket and spark plug, but if you need it now take the socket wrench off the socket and place the socket in a vice. Then with the biggest screwdriver that will fit in the socket wrench hole, place the screw driver tip on the top of the spark plug stuck in the socket and hit the other end of the screw driver with a hammer until the spark plug comes out...... get a bigger hammer. note: the old spark plug may not survive.

Need to replace sparkplugs on 2002 ford escape


well replace spark plugs is not a hard job,when replacing spark plugs, good time to replace plug wires also.you need to replace one spark plug at a time so you wont mix up firing order. you need a spark socket, torque wrench, 3/8 ratchet wrench, 3/8 short and long extensions,you need a spark plug gap gauge.spark plug gap for 2.0 engine 0.051 the 3.0 engine spark plug gap is 0.052 - 0.056. just follow spark plug wires they will lead you to the spark plugs.warning wait until engine cool down first because removing spark plugs from hot engine could damaged the aluminum heads,use compressed to blow away debris before removing spark plugs keep debris falling into the cylinders.wear safety glasses if you use compress air and use small amount anti seize compound to the spark plug threads.good idea slip a short length rubber hose over the end of spark plug to use as a tool thread it into place.reason i use piece vacuum hose it will grip the spark plug enough to turn it, but will start to slip if the plug begin to cross thread.when installing spark plug, it should turn at least few times if spark plug start tighten before 1/4 turn thread cross threading need to back off start over dont keep turning you will stripped spark plugs threads in the head also damage spark plug threads, so be careful, good luck with job.

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

Car would not start or the engine wouldn?t even turn over.


Try removing spark plugs and turning engine over by hand with socket wrench on harmonic dampner if it spins freely probably not engine problem fluid in cylinders will cause hydro lock indicating blown head gasket or injector stuck wide open. a broken timing belt would still allow engine to turn over as your car should not have an interference engine. If engine will not turn by hand with spark plugs out susspect internal engine damage siezed bearings broken rod and so.

My car wont start after replacing spark plugs


Check that you have pushed the spark plug wires fully home on the spark plug. If it's not turning it could be the solenoid that connects the battery to the starter motor when trying to start or simply a flat battery. Check battery first, check solenoid by listening to a click sound, check starter motor for connections check any related fuses.
