looks like you know less than you think you do mate... its always good to read others methods just incase you might learn something.
If you think ur beyond this thread, then go and read something more along your lines, like the how to put air in your tyre thread

If you pull on the lead itself you can pull it out of the boot.

The other day we were changing my friend's plugs and when we pulled one of the leads using the boot part itself the boot part and the head of the lead came apart. What would happen if you push the head of the lead against the boot part of the lead again? Would it be the same or is it time for a new lead?

If it is time to get a new lead what are the best for an N/A?

Cheers

I got them off here, a new set for $50. I don't believe plug leads offer much better performance at all on any car. The reason people rate them is cause their old ones were "old" and the new set could have been factory and would have improved etc.

I went to supercheap and asked for VL RB30 spark plugs and they gave me NGK ones that say BKR6E on them. Not knowing that these were incorrect I installed them. drove it and it shudderd. I thought the shuddering was from something else, I un-done them and the plastic was cracked. Luckily nothing fell into the holes. Where these incorrect spark plugs? are these for n/a's or are they completly wrong?

The only standard ones you should use are NGK BCPR6ES-11 both turbo or NA.

any other BKRXXXXXXXX etc is WRONG!

Hey, I've tried everything and....is it just me or does plug #4 stick out further than the rest? I've compared all of them but some reason plug 4 seems to extend further out. i was replacing my leads on the weekend and since the swap i keep getting a big miss! I also tried taking the plug out and replacing it but it still sticks out. Is that the way it's meant to be or am i doing something wrong? Much help appreciated. Cheers

Hey, yeah i always use a lil bit of grease around the threads to facilitate tightening. It's the miss i'm concerned about. Ever since i replaced the leads the problem's been persisting but why?? I didn't even do anything. I mean i'm always careful and stuff, as far as i'm concerned i didn't knock anything while installing leads

if its sticking out and gets tight really quickly you may have stripped it. Take the throttle body off and make absolutely sure you are aligning it properly and it should screw in by hand a few turns before getting firm.

I turned it by hand a few times and finished adjusting it with ratchet etc. Still sticks out, perhaps it's meant to be like that.

Found the problem though: it ended up being the timing. Strange though because i checked it yesterday and it seemed fine! It way off and sounds worst everytime i start it. Who knows perhaps small things can affect the timing. q

QUICk question and way off topic but the harmonic balancer is meant to line up with the marker on the lower timing belt cover even when i turn the car off right?? Thanks again.

Cheers

A 1/2" ratchet, long extension, uni joint and socket. Put the uni between the socket and extension.

Thats wrong. BCPR6ES-11 are the most common, but theres a few types of plug with that will work fine.
