You will need the correct replacement spark plugs, a spark plug socket, and a screw driver. The new cars have the spark plugs concealed and you might have to open the cover over the engine to access it, which may require addition tools
How do I change spark plugs in 2009 Toyota Corolla? whaT TOOLS I NEED
You didn't say which engine you had, but with most of those GM's you had to roate the engine to get to the rear plugs. Lisle tool company sells an engine rotation tool. You disconnect the engine stuts that attach to the radiator support and install the turning tool in its place. You put the car in neutral and tighten the tool. That rotates the engine forward enough to get your hands back there to replace the plugs. If you want to play with cars, you have to own the tools.
use a bendy extension with your plug socket on the end. Available in a good socket set such as Teng-Tools. Dan,
no special tools required except a plug wrench most socket sets have plug sized sockets in them
i cant figure it out either. . . .. . . .the world may never know
Not sure what you are asking. It is a fairly easy removal and replacment with common tools and can be done in your garage.
change out all the spark plugs,oil and air filter including the oil filter located under the engine you will need a floorjack and some tools. you will also need a filter wrench1
Extremely difficult to get to the 3 rear plugs because the engine is mounted at an angle in the engine compartment. Make sure the engine is cool, and use a mirror to watch what you're doing. Easiest way I've found short of using a lift to be able to access from beneath. There's not too much room to maneuver tools either. Crappy design for the do-it-yourselfer, that's for sure.
First there is no such thing as a CLK500 AMG Second the plugs go 100k miles unless an engine code indicates misfire If this happens, you will need to get the codes reset at the dealer Third, you may or may not know that there are 16 plugs on the 5 liter Fourth, the engine has aluminum heads so changing plugs must be done carefully and with proper tools, like a torque wrench for example. i really suggest you take this thing to a dealer if you want to change a plug - if you have looked at where they are located, it is no small task.
the glow plugs are located inside the the valve covers on the engine' the wire harness goes thru the cover gaskets.so this is a major job.if you break a gasket while removing, they cost about $70 , each to replace. you also need special tools to remove glow plugs. it is much easier and safer to take the truck to a reputable diesel mechanic.
due to the transverse mounted engine this in NOT a vehicle you want to start on. The fromt ones ore ok but the rear are HE##. The 3 plugs in font are not to bad, but the three in the back go down a little deep. you may need to sit up on the engine to reach down and into the cylinders where the plugs are acessable, that's what i do.A rubber hose attaching to the end of the spark plug will help in removing old plug when you loosen it, and to install and tightening the new plugs. I have the same vehicle and they are not all that bad, when using proper tools, such as rubber hose, rachet, extentions for back plugs, and swivel end.
no you do not..
A turret lathe has a toolholding turret in place of a tailstock. The tools in the turret can be used to perform multiple cutting operations without the need to change tools, while when operating a conventional engine lathe, changing tools is necessary.
get a diagnostic scan. even if the check engine light is not on, a code may appear. also, some diagnostic tools can monitor the engine while it is running to get a better idea of how your car is running.
If your Diamante is the Dohc 6 cyl. motor in it then you have to remove the entire intake manifold to replace the back 3 plugs I did it in about 4 hours with not many tools and I am a female. So it can be done.

The spark plugs are in the engine of the car. Open the hood and locate the ignition coil at the top center of the engine. There are 4 very thick wires attached to it, with 2 running left and 2 running right. Each of these wires leads to a spark plug. If you want to change the spark plugs you will need to remove the windshield washer bottle on the left side and air intake ducting on the right. Tools needed include a 5/8" spark plug socket, a ratchet, and several lengths of extensions for the ratchet.
To change spark plugs on 4.3 engine for 1996 caprice-the first three are easy on driver's side and can be done from top of engine using standard tools including elbow tool. The last one toward engine firewall on driver's side is done from underneath with relative ease using same tools. Passenger side first three from firewall are easy but the last one at front by a/c and alternator is tough. Here is what I did-disconnect and bend the pollution pipe that hides the spark plug-move it toward back of engine till you can place your spark tool in there using a 4" extension piece and elbow. You must hold the elbow steady at a slight angle so it will not twist making it impossible to loosen the plug. My engine ran much better after changing these two difficult plugs which had been ommitted by former tuneups because it takes work and that includes removing a/c and or alternator.
About an hour or so if your also changing the plugs and have the tools and parts ready.
