Do the plugs yerself, on a turbo model they are awkward but worth saving your money. you need to take out the air box to do that side (off side in uk) get your plug socket 16mm, and fit it in to the plug (after you take off the leads!) then depending on length of your socket you may need an extention, i use the short swivel adaptor thingy!.. and slowly undo, ... gap to 0.7 - 0.8 on a turbo, 0.6 if your running high boost on a modded model, .............the other side (near side in uk) you got to take out the battery and the washer bottle, be careful with the pipework under the bottle and connections. .... there is not alot of room to change plugs on a 16valve subaru....so have a swear box and plasters ready lol....DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN!!!!!....

My 1999 Subaru Impreza sport wagon had a misfire in cylinder 2, after I changed all four spark plugs and fuel filter the problem got worse. Now the throttle lags and misfires only happen when the car accellerates from 0 to 20, then the problem disappears. When I was changing the spark plugs, there was also oil completely coating the outside of the rubber gaskets that plug over the spark plug, is this due to a cracked valve cover gasket?
