January 23, 2008mine were the same way, guess you should check them more than every 100k. anyways, I used a 3/8 impact gun and was pretty careful with it.
January 23, 2008Spray some PB Blaster on them and then see if a breaker bar will fit.
January 23, 2008i know theyve been changed before, but wasnt sure how long. dont have an impact wrench, but i used a 1/2" ratchet and 3/4" socket to get some extra leverage on the spark plug socket that was already in there.
they are showing a little rust on the threads.
January 23, 2008If no access to an impact, then im with biggreen
January 23, 2008Possibly who ever installed them last didn't put anti-seize on the threads. Your Supposed To. Hope they arn't really siezed...JohnB
January 23, 2008Do you have the real plug socket? the long one with the rubber in it, cause they should come of with that if you try, What I also do is if they are really stuck , I let the engine get warm, In my experience the plugs cool quicker while the engine is still expanded ( wear gloves to prevent from burning. Im not sure if this is a good way to go about it , but that is how I do it and it has proved to work
January 23, 2008Warm engine OK for iron heads but for aluminum heads, the engine should be cold as it is easier to strip the head when hot. Definitely try PB Blaster, Kroil or some good penetrant (not WD-40), then go for it.
