Replacement of candles ignition/check of electric contacts

The special tool will be required:

  • Candle key.
  • It is in addition recommended to buy special nippers, for example, of HAZET 1849 for simplification of removal of tips of candles.

The following spare parts have to be bought:



  1. To disconnect all tips of candles, at the same time it is necessary to pull for plugs, but not for cables. Above-mentioned nippers facilitate removal.
  2. To blow niches of candles compressed air that by the removed candlelight dirt could not get to openings.
  3. To turn out candles a candle key and to check a condition of candles (appearance). In the presence of some experience it is possible to draw conclusions on a condition of the engine from this:

Electrodes and insulators

Average-gray — the correct work of a secha of ignition and quality of mix

Black — mix too rich

Light gray — mix too poor

Are greasy — interruptions in work of the corresponding candle or low insulation of piston rings (to check a compression).


  1. To check insulators of candles for superficial currents of leak. Superficial currents leave thin, uneven marks on a surface. Perhaps it is required to replace untight tips of candles.



  1. Before installation to check distance between electrodes by means of the flat probe.
  1. At new candles the distance between electrodes is, as a rule, established correctly, see the Head Sistem of ignition, the Section of the Candle for MAZDA 323.
  1. For adjustment of distance between contacts it is necessary to turn in a weight electrode. For this purpose there is simple, practical adaptation, otherwise to knock on a weight electrode. At a podgibaniye to rest the small screw-driver against a candle carving, at all not against the central electrode as differently it will be damaged.
  1. To clear a carving on candles a pure rag.
  2. To screw in spark plugs a hand to a prileganiye to a head of cylinders.

At the same time not to warp a candle.

  1. To tighten spark plugs with effort of 20 Nanometers.

If there is no dynamometer key, to tighten new spark plugs a candle key on 90 ° (1/4 turns). To tighten the candles which were in the use only on 15 °. Too strongly tightened candles can break or damage at a vyvinchivaniye a carving in a head of cylinders. In this case to make repair of a carving repair inserts of UTC or Heli - Coil.

  1. To connect tips of candles according to an order of ignition 1-3-4-2.
  2. To check durability of landing of tips of candles and cables of ignition.

Check of electric sockets


  1. To check durability of landing of all electric sockets on the ignition coil.
  2. To replace the burst plugs.
  3. To clear corroded contacts by a wire brush or a skin, if necessary to spray spray for contacts.
  4. Contacts should not be damp, otherwise clear contacts and spray spray for contacts.
  5. To bend cables of ignition and to check existence of cracks. If necessary to replace all cables of ignition.
