How do you change the plugs on a 2003 mitsu gallant 4 cyl

Answers :

Your coils and spark plug caps are one in the same. You need to unbolt the coil/plug caps on top of the valve cover. Lift them out of the way and you will find the spark plugs underneath.

I have a 2003 Expedition 5.4L Triton. Two days ago, with low gas (38 miles to empty), engine started running rough. Code read P0302, misfire cyl. 2. Since it had 113K miles, I figured its time to change the plugs. Did that, and then got 4 codes. 0300 (random misfire), 0302 (cyl 2), 0304(cyl 4), 0171(running lean, bank 1). Then I changed all the boots and springs, and checked that plugs were all secure. Same thing. Changed PCV valve, air filter, fuel filter, and put Lucas fuel injector tr


Most likely the coils. Easiest way to check is swap them with another cylinder, start it, pull the plug wire connecter and if it doesn't change the engine the coil is bad. If it is the injector, then you can check it with an ohm meter. Touch the lead ... 2003 Ford Expedition

My 1995 mitsu eclipse is sputtering and has trouble staying on when I turn it on for the first time in more than 5 hrs. It also stalls and throws me an oil light. I've changed the spark plugs (which are black after 10,000 miles), the plug cables ( which look rusty after 5k miles) and the ignition coil (coil pack, coilendra, solenoid, whatever you wanna call it). I've changed al that 4 times in the last 30k miles. Except the spark plugs I've changed that 6 times. I've had the check engine light c

I have an 89 Jeep Comanche, 6 cyl 5 speed. I recently changed out all my spark plugs, clutch, battery, put in a new freeze plug, new oil change and new ignition coil. The jeep always started and i never drove it because of the freeze plug being blown, knowing what serious damage it could have done to the engine. After we replaced the clutch it won't start at all leading to the new spark plugs, battery, and ignition coil. please help

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?

01 kia rio has bad rings in the # 3 cyl. i've been just changing the plugs and adding oil as needed but now the same old process happens missing, check engine light, changed all the plugs and wires still missing, still reads a code. plugs are firing (i'm thinking timing belt but the miss is'nt that bad)how can read the code? some cars can be read without a diagnostic pluged up


Rent a scanner, they present more information better that blinking lights. If the engine has a lot of miles, the timing belt is probably ready to fail. The better answer to your problems might be finding a good used engine in a wrecking yard rather t ... 2001 Kia Rio

I am trying to figure out whats wrong with a 1994 chev s-10 with a v6 vortec engine. It will idle but the rpm flucuates. When I try to increase the rpm it acts like it has a miss firing cyl. I pluued the plugs and found heavy carbon build up on some of the plugs so I changed them out along with dist. cap.It runs the same. I suspect a vac. leak so I changed the top intake gasket with no change in how it runs. Any suggestions as to whats next will be helpful. Thanks Jim in N.CA.

I have a 1998 toyota sienna with 132,000 miles on it. Recently I noticed a "shuddering" or hesitation while driving that was intermittent at idle and driving. The check engine light came on shortly thereafter and the code was p0303 for cyl #3 misfire. I suspected bad spark plugs cuz they were due for a change so I changed them all. It was fine for 2 days then started again today. I suspect plug wires but they don't look worn. Any help?


My name is Jerry Tiet. Base on my experience on 1998 Toyota Sienna with the DTC P0303 show there is a misfire in cylinder #3. a possible cause is the ignition coil of the #3 cylinder. Compare the resistance value of the ignition coil of cylinder #3 w ... 1998 Toyota Sienna

Took our tahoe in for oil change they also put in fuel injector cleaner since the we have had a hard idle problem that happens between 0 to 5 miles an hour then occasional it dies after you first start it. what do you thin is wrong we change the spark plugs to bosch plugs and new wires and a new fuel filter but it still did the same thing. We had it read at and it is still saying 8 is the problem so we put in a new silinode what do you think?

How do I change the Manual Transmission fluid in my 1999 Jeep Wrangler 4 cyl ? Do I have a AX5 or a AX15 Transmission ? Please Advise. Is there a difference in changing the fluid ? Based on the pictures one person posted his trany seems different. Where his drain plug is mine has two wires coming out of that plug his don't because he is using a rachet to take it off.


What you are looking at is likely a temp sensor. why not remove it with an open end wrench? If you can find the plug on the wire, then you can use a box wrench. Bottom line is the fluid will drain after it's out.Before opening the drain, make ... 1999 Jeep Wrangler

I have a 92, 6- Cylinder Chrysler 300M. Error codes say misfire is #5 Cyl, and "E" Coil Pack(=#5 coil). Have changed #5 coil and all plugs. The catylitic converter on psgr side is getting red hot, I was told that means it's still working (for now). Car is running very rough at all times, and has now developed a loud knock which seems to be coming from cyl 5 using a piece of hose to listen. 3 mechanics have 3 diff guesses. I am thinking of changing the injector next. It's at another shop rite now


Sounds like a lean misfire. The injector may be clogged or defective causing the cylinder to run very hot. A compressoin test is a good idea in case the exhaust valve is burning up. Hope it turns out OK, Don T ... 2008 Chrysler 300
