By Bobby Ingram

The spark plug is a small plug inside the engine of your gas-powered golf cart that ignites the fuel to make your cart go. Sometimes you may have to replace your plug when it becomes worn. Doing so is a simple process, though one which should be done carefully.


Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Step 1
Remove the wires from the tip of the spark plug.
Step 2
Turn the plug counterclockwise with the wrench to loosen it.
Step 3
Remove the old spark plug.
Step 4
Check your cart's manuals for the appropriate gap size and set the gapping tool accordingly.
Step 5
Use the gapping tool to check that the gap on the new spark plug is the proper size.
Step 6
Install the new spark plug by turning it clockwise with the wrench, then replacing the wire.
