Question Spark Plug removal tool

Hi everyone. Im just wondering if this tool is the correct size for pulling out spark plugs from a MR18DE 1.8 engine?

You do not need a special tool. You can use a spark plug socket and an extension. I use a piece of hose on the tip to unscrew the plug and pull it out as well as start it in the bore.

You don't need that, it is a waste of money.

Invest in a proper set of tools first, like wrenches and socket set and extensions.
There are only 2 common spark plug sizes for autos. You would need the smaller of the 2(5/8 inch. The other is closer to 3/4).
The difference between a normal 5/8 deep well and spark plug socket is the addition of foam rubber inside the socket to cushion and hold the plug in the socket.

thanks. I am making a list of things I need to buy and a set of tools is already in there. I saw a youtube vid on how to remove the plugs from a versa and the guy said that this is needed but he did not mention the size of the tool.

Most auto stores like advance and auto zone loan tools and will help you. If you do it in the parking lot you are sure to get free help or advice from other customers if not the store employee. Installing plugs is an easy job you can do in their parking lot.
