Best Answer

lower your coolant level to below the plug that you will be working on.drive out the old one using punch and a hammer (have pliers handy) careful not to get it stuck and or drop too much metal shavings in to the engine (cooling system damage). clean the area/hole. drive in the new plug. use something to help you push the plug in evenly. ''THE NEW PLUG MUST BE THE SAME SIZE AS THE OLD ONE AND IT MUST BE INSTALLED PROPERLY AND GO IN EVENLY, FLUSH WITH ENGINE BLOCK''
