Spark Plug Replacement

I want to replace the plugs on my 2.4L, but can't find any instructions on how to do it. I searched the forum and found a guide in the maintenance section for the V6, but nothing for the 4 cyl.

In the 4G technical manual under "spark plug replace", all it shows is a diagram of a plug, with gap settings. There is nothing about how to remove the plug to check the gap.

I sure hope it's not as difficult as the V6 because that looks like a real pain in the ass.

can't remember if they have the same 'boot' on there but I bet they do...can you see where your spark-plugs are? mmmmmm.....I'd need to see a pic, hold on....yes, they have that same ignition coil boot, looks to be under the engine cover. there is a pic of them on page 11A-11 of the service manual

so - take that cover off, then unscrew the bolts holding the 'boot' to the motor. once the bolts are removed you can wiggle the boot loose and pull it out. down in the exposed hole is the plug - you'll need a long ratchet and a 'spark plug removal' socket - 14 mm I believe but someone w/ a GS please double check me. doesn't look to me like you have to remove your intake manifold to get to them (like you do for the rear 3 on the v6) so it shouldn't be too bad. hope this helps

depending on the type of plug u are using like iridium you shouldnt gap them. u can break the electrode since they are so small

i forgot what size socket i used to remove my sparks, would check but it is at friends house lol.

Anyways do what i did, buy the spark plugs, take it to autozone or somewhere, test fit it in the sockets till you find the right one. You will need an extension.

5/8 plugsocket did the job. make sure you also have some kind of rubber hose to fish the new plug down in the depths and be able to finger tighten first so as not to cross thread. gl
