Threads to spark plug stuck in head "95 acura integra ls motor"

Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Answers :

Spray a good penetrating oil at the base of the plug. I use PB Blaster. Slowly try working the plug loose. I like to start the engine and let run for a minute so the head gets hot and spray the lubricant and while the head is still warm, try to remove the stuck plug. By getting the head warm, it allows the aluminum to expand a little.

Some idiot so called mechanic has forced the wrong spark plugs into my car and cross threaded them...can i heli-coil all four? is this a good idea...and how can i get the cross threaded plugs out 3 are stuck now and are there any other options for fixing the car without having to buy a new cylinder head. i am unable to get a heli-coil kit here where i live (abroad) and am looking for another solution


Likely, the plugs weren't cross threaded but I'll bet that anti-seize compound wasn't used. Plugs are not replaced as often as they once were and the dis-similar metals tend to corrode and bind so you end up tearing the threads out when you remove th ... 1991 BMW 3 Series

Yesterday, I just got my Acura Integra out of an oil change and fuel filter change from Jiffy Lube. Drving off the lot, the car rode very rough (sputtering), then it cut off after about a mile. And it could not restart. Upon inspection, saw that 2 of the spark plug wires were not connected to the distributor cap, and also saw pool of oil all inside my spark plug wells. Seeing from other posts that leak in head gasket,and what not, but could an oil change have brought this on?


No, and oil change does not cause this problem as oil change places only change oil, air filter and they will ad fluids, oil, pwr steering fluid, brake fluid and washer fluid. They do not do spark plugs/wires etc.. It was more then likely a pre exi ... 1993 Acura Legend

My 91 acura integra with a 95 gsr motor in it starts, then dies right away. I replaced the spark plugs, checked for spark through the wires, and checked to see if fuel was coming from the pump. Everything seems fine, but it wont stay running. I was thinking maybe the fuel pressure regulater. Any ideas what may be wrong?


Did you check the fuel pressur on the fuel rail with a gauge or did you just unplug the pressure reg.. \015\012\015\012also you should try replacing the fuel filter first... this is cheap 6-12 dollars autozone. just becuase the fuel pump ... 1991 Acura Integra Hatchback

Thanks Gerard


The problem isn't related to the head, it's either in the ignition system itself (you have assembled it incorrectly) or in the ECM, when you have reassembled the engine back you have forgot to plug in a sensor or a data connection.\012\012\012G ... Mitsubishi Lancer

This apparently a common problem with this design. I bought a kit that taps the shield to remove it, but the remaining ceramic will not allow it to be tapped.
