I have just done this on a cast-iron head ..... plug head was rounded off and insulator cracked. The only way was to completely remove the insulator core (much time, cursing and swearing) byand then use an ezi-out to extract the remainder being careful not to let anything fall into the cylinder. Also be sure the piston is at BDC so you don't damage it as well. In hindsight, when it was found tight, I should have left it alone and taken it to a professional. Good luck!
they are at the top of the cylinder head and just use a socket or wrench to remove it
spark plugs are located in the side of the head you remove them with a spark plug socket tip for you if you dont know where spark plugs are or how to remove them, i would get someone that does know, to do it or at least show you
Remove the spark plug wire or coil and use a padded socket to remove the spark plug from the head. Examine the old spark plug for wear patterns. Very carefully start threading the new spark plug in, such as not to damage the threads in the head, and finally use the padded socket to tighten firm (lookup specific torque specifications for your vehicle).
You have to remove the head gasket to check in the cylinder. The click and flash should be obvious on a working spark plug
Take it to a trustworthy mechanic. You DON'T want to do this job. I had the spark plug break off in the head. It's about $528 job to have done. But if they snap off in the head its $1200 a head. Good luck!!!
In most extreme case - remove head and bring to a machine shop
remove exhaust pipe from head , and leave the washer out thats at frt of the pipe.
First you need a Torx head screwdriver(the proper size of course) to remove the two torx screws that secures the wiring head that leads to the spark plug. Then you would use the proper size spark plug socket (has a rubber washer inside), I believe its 5/8, to remove the spark plug it self. (You have to pull up on the wiring head in order to access the plug). jd.
You will first need to remove the coils and plug wires to access the spark plugs. The coils sit on top of the valve cover and are held in with small torx head screws. Then pry off the plug wires and remove the coil and wires together. Then you have access to the spark plugs.
May have to remove the head for access or to drill them out
First you take out all your spark plug wires, you dont have to remove y our spark plugs. Then you take the valve cover off and set your timing to TDC (top dead center) then you take the timing chain and gears out and the cam(s) out and unbolt the head.
If you have the 2.2 liter engine, there are two (2) bolts that hold the cover on the top of the engine. These bolts will require a hex head (Allen wrench) to remove and tighten. Remove these bolts, lift the plastic cover up, and you will see the four spark plug wires leading to each spark plug. Twist and then pull straight up (you may have a plastic hook on each wire) to remove the wire. Then you can use a 5/8" spark plug wrench with a long (6") extension to remove and replace each spark plug.
No. Remove the passenger seat, remove the cosmetic panel under the passenger door, peel of the carpet and unbolt the access cover. Younow can see the engine head where your spark plugs are.
They are located right in between the where intake manifold ends and the valve cover starts. You must remove a 7mm hex head bolt to remove the coil unit, then unplug the wire for the coil unit for each spark plug, remove the coil unit and you need a special very long spark plug socket to go down into the spark plug hole. Beware!!! The 4.6 and 5.4 Ford V-8 engines are known to have the spark plugs break off in the head for no appearent reason whatsoever and without warning.
no you do not..hope this helps!!!
There are two, you will need to remove the tank to reach them on top of the cylinder head cover.
You must remove the old ones and install new ones. If you have never done it, get a mechanic to do it. If you break a spark plug off in the head, you will never get it out.
Simple, first you want to remove the plastic cover from the head (this covers the plug wires) then remove the wires and spark plugs. Once that is done remove the engines ground its on the right side of the engine its a small brown wire near the front of the engine. Then all you have to do is remove the bolts holding the head in place, and that's about it...
Do this one plug at a time, and reconnect that wire so as to not get wires mixed up. REMOVAL Remove spark plug wires from spark plugs with a Spark Plug Wire Remover tool, pull outward on the boot with a slight side-to-side twist. Loosen spark plugs and remove any dirt or foreign material from spark plug areas of cylinder head with compressed air. Remove spark plugs. INSTALLATION Inspect and adjust spark plugs. Spark Plug Gap: 0.042" to 0.046". Install spark plugs. Tighten spark plugs to 9-20 N.m (7-15 lb in). Connect spark plug wires to spark plugs.
if its anything like my 2000 savage, you need to remove the tank to get at the bolts that hold the chrome cover in place. Once you remove the chrome head cover, you should have pretty easy access to the spark plug.
