No i dont believe they are even loose its weird like i put the new spark plug in the socket to make sure it fit and you can feel the magnet socket tension but when i donit with the ones in the car already it doesnt seem like there really magnitized or stick to socket is there a certain one that i need or i read something a about a plastic part thAt grabs the plug and helps pull it out. I am really just annoyed with those f$%^&ng plugs right now..
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Doesnt seem like it is even loostening them but a spark plug socket universally is 5/8's
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
right????
Nissan Mechanic: david craig, ASE Certified Technician replied 10 months ago

if you have a set of deepwell sockets, try using a couple different sizes of them to see if they fit over the plugs that are installed.

Whats it called??? Ty so much!!!
