How Do I Change Spark Plugs?

Your car needs to be serviced at least once a year and sometimes more often, and how do I change spark plugs? That is one of the most common questions that people who own a diesel engine are asking. Some cars only have engine covers so that you will need to pull off to see the spark plugs, tracing them back internally to find the right plugs. You should always check your auto parts guide and check the spark plugs for yourself, how much you need, the proper gap and the exact size socket needed to change them. Once you know this information you can either get new ones or just replace those that are damaged.

When your engine is cool enough to handle changing the spark plugs, head to a local auto parts dealer. They should be able to tell you what size sockets are required to change them as well as the gap size between them. Ask your mechanic what he recommends as well as if he has any recommendations on where to get new spark plugs. Don’t forget to purchase new spark plugs when you are changing your wiring as well.

Once you get home, you can take your car to the auto parts store and ask for spark plug replacement. The mechanics there should be able to help you. If they can’t, ask them if they know of anyone in your area that might have a pro shop they could refer you to. Even if you do not have a local pro shop, most reputable mechanics that change cars for a living have their own shops or have at least contacts through local auto parts stores. This is really the best way to go about replacing spark plugs.

After you replace your spark plugs, run your engine for a short time to make sure everything is oiled up and that there are no leaks. Then it’s time to move onto your next step in your car maintenance routine-changing your oil. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for your specific engine and then complete your final steps by ensuring that your automatic transmission fluid is changed as well.

Your next step in your car maintenance routine is to check your battery and other electronic devices for wear and make sure that they are working properly as well. You can use your battery tester to see if your batteries are drained if so. If you need your vehicle to run without being plugged in, you should check all of the other electronic devices and your carburetor for problems as well. If you plan on using your carburetor for a long distance trip, make sure all of the seals are properly gaskets and that the lifters are properly adjusted. You can use your manual to guide you on your repair.

When you feel comfortable enough to work on your own vehicle, start by disconnecting the battery cables first. If the wires are difficult to disconnect, you can try to unbolt the battery from the vehicle. Next, pull out the timing belt using the socket wrench and unbolt it from the engine. Unscrew the engine mounting bolts and remove the pulley system. Once this is done, you will be able to access the timing belt, belts, and gaskets. You will probably need to use the manual on how to change spark plugs if you do not have a manual on your vehicle.
