Check and replacement of spark plugs


The tools necessary for replacement of spark plugs

1 - the Head of a candle key - is equipped by a special soft insert for protection of a porcelain insulator of a candle.
2 - the Dinamometrichesky key - though it also is not the extremely necessary tool, but gives the maximum guarantee of correctness of effort of a tightening of candles.
3 - the Ratchet drive - is standardly applied in the complete set on a candle key.

4 - the Extension piece - depending on model of the car and its accessories special extension pieces and universal hinges can be necessary for providing of access to candles for you.
5 - the Measuring instrument of a candle backlash is an adaptation for check of a candle backlash is issued in various updatings. Make sure that there is a measuring instrument for a backlash of your car. Instead of it it is possible to use edges щупа.

1. Before the work beginning prepare all necessary tools which include a replaceable head of a candle key and a set of edges щупа. Some manufacturers of spark plugs deliver special tools for measurement of a candle backlash.
2. The best way of replacement of spark plugs is preliminary purchase of new candles, adjustment of their backlash and replacement of each candle by turns. At purchase of candles very important to choose those candles which are intended for the engine of your car.
3. Having near at hand new candles, allow to the engine to cool down completely before the beginning of removal of the old. In this time it is possible to examine new candles on presence in them of defects and to check up candle backlashes.
4. The candle backlash is checked by insertion of a measuring instrument of the necessary thickness between electrodes on the candle end. The backlash should correspond specified in Specifications. The delay should concern only each of electrodes. If the backlash does not correspond to norm, slightly turn in the bent part of an electrode by means of a regulator with notches before achievement of necessary size of a backlash.
The remark

At adjustment of a backlash of a new candle turn in only the basis of an electrode of grounding, without touching its end. If the grounding electrode is displaced concerning the central electrode, by means of a regulator with notches level them. Check up a porcelain insulator on presence of the cracks specifying in those, it is necessary to replace a candle.

4а. Firms-manufacturers of spark plugs recommend to use measuring instruments of wire type for definition of size of a candle backlash - if the measuring element does not slip between electrodes of a candle with easy resistance, means, backlash adjustment is required
4b. For backlash updating turn in only a grounding electrode as it is specified in a picture by arrows, and be extremely cautious not to damage a porcelain insulator round the central electrode
5. At the cooled engine disconnect ВВ a wire from one of spark plugs. Thus do not pull for a wire, keep for a socket on its end. Sometimes it is required to apply a rotary motion to socket separation.
6. If there is such possibility, use compressed air for blowing of a dirt and particles of alien materials from area round spark plugs. It is possible to use for this purpose the usual bicycle pump. It becomes on purpose to avoid possibility of hit of dust in the cylinder after extraction of candles.
7. Establish a head of a candle key on a candle and remove a candle from the engine, having unscrewed it counter-clockwise. Use a key with a replaceable head and the extension piece.
8. Compare the taken out candle with shown on pictures in the Head an engine Electric equipment, it will give you the helpful information on the general condition of the engine.
9. Put a little медьсодержащего antitaking structure on a carving of a new candle. Insert a candle into a head of cylinders and twist its fingers against the stop, then tighten by means of a head of a candle key. If it is possible, use for a candle tightening динамометрический a key to be assured that it is established correctly. The effort of a tightening of candles is included in Specifications.

In order to avoid possibility ввинчивания candles not on a carving put on its shaft a small piece of a rubber hose or a plastic tube. The flexible tube will work as universal - карданный the hinge, providing candle alignment in relation to a candle nest and in case the candle will start to warp, the hose will slip on it, without giving possibility to strip a thread.

10 Before connection to a candle high-voltage (ВВ) wires carefully examine it as it is described in Section Check and replacement candle ВВ wires, a cover and бегунка the distributor.
11 Connect a wire to the established new candle, again using a rotary motion and keeping for a socket while it will not be put on a candle up to the end.
12 Repeat the procedure described above for other spark plugs consistently to avoid wrong connection candle ВВ wires.
