All 8 out no problem! 80,000 miles. Pb laster and patience the old ones look to have rust color on the tips but that could be due to pb blaster.

You got the sp507?
Mine came out better than i thought they would just used pb plaster waited. Cracked em 1/4 turn the closed them.and repeded this process a couple times then started backing them out. Abd every once and a while tighten it back a little then continue backing them out.
I fount the spark plug socket at orileys for $4.
now my sputtering /backfiring problem is solved when i put the petal to the metal.

Default Job Well Done:

It shows a tyro contemplating the same job a way to avoid pitfalls common to the task....

I thank God that the former owner of my '97 XLT 4.6L had changed the plugs a few K miles before I bought the truck.

Every time a come across a maintenance article such as this excellent presentation I dream about having my Chevy 6.2L diesel back.

Well Patrick I couldn't wait till this weekend so I started a little early. After work today I went at it and just done one at a time because I knew I wouldn't have time to do them all before it got dark. So the first one I cracked open put a lil pb blast and carb cleaner let it set for about 2 min because I didn't wanna wait around lol (I'm impatient) and the first came NOOO PROBLEM YAAAAAY!!! So the second done same thing again no problem, then the third again no problem so I was like man this is easy wonder if I even need the blaster and cleaner??? So the next one I went at and didn't put anything in it......WEEEELLL that one came out easier than the other ones???? Hmmmm ain't that weird???? But after that one it was dark so I stopped for the night and will finish tomorrow and I pray it goes just as smooth as the first 4. Man this was a lot easier than I was expecting. I done the drivers side tonight because I knew the passenger would take longer so I'll do it tomorrow when I get off because I only had an hour tonight to work at it tomorrow I'll have longer. Thanks for everything patrick and I really hope I don't need the tool but glade I got it just incase. Thanks again for this great write up and got me ready for everything. And sorry to jack it and post so long.
