From underneath the van on a lift. but the other way is to take off the intake plenium and throttle body and air filter housing and pretty much everything on top the motor. and replace all the gaskets with a intake gasket set. this will take all day long and its a lot of work.

97 acura 2.2 cl engine light p0302 code


A P0302 is indicating that cylinder # 2 is misfiring...Cylinder # 2 is the second plug counting from the front to rear of engine...Main causes for misfire are: defective spark plug, spark plug wire...When was last time plugs were changed? if it has been awhile I would suggest changing them...Also the spark plug wires should be replaced...Changing one plug and/or one wire isn't a good idea; change them all...Plugs cost two or three dollars apiece and a set of wires around $15...Standard motor products wire set # 4717...Spark plugs; Bosch platinum gaped at .044

Milage to change spark plugs


If you have an old points distributor around 25.000miles If you have a ECM controlled engine then unless it shows a misfire in the fault codes forget about changing them. The reasoning is simple . In the old system the maximum current /voltage was 16.000volts which produced an arc that jumped across the electrodes of the plug. This acted as an arc welder and eroded the centre electrode.
In modern ECM cars the voltage generated is over 60.000 volts and so the current is less than 5 amps so there is no arc welding process hence no loss of centre electrode.
Modern cars like Mitsubishi with a V6 engine have the rear 3 plugs so positioned that changing the plugs is a very long and costly job, so they used platinum plugs in the rear bank and cheapies in the accessible bank . The rear plugs will last longer than the engine . HT leads are a different matter

Change sparks plugs on 06 hyundai sonata v6


You didn't specify whether you have the (4) cylinder or the (6) cylinder engine..... I have a 2004 Hyundai Sonata 2.4L 4 cylinder and I just changed the spark plugs in it. I believe that the 2005 2.4L engine is the same. To locate and change the (4) spark plugs on a 2004 Hyundai 2.4L 4 cylinder engine: Remove the (4) 12mm bolts from the decorative plastic engine cover. Remove plastic cover from engine and place it off to the side out of your way. Standing in front of the car, the (4) spark plugs are located laterally (left to right) in the recessed area underneath where the plastic engine cover was removed. Note: This engine has (2) coils....They are located above spark plugs number (2) and (3) from left to right. Starting with the fist spark plug on the left: Remove the spark plug cable by pulling straight up on the insulated connector. Using a spark plug socket, remove the old spark plug and install a new one in it's place. To access the second spark plug from the left, remove the electrical connector and the spark plug cable wire from coil number (1) and then remove the (2) 12mm bolts that secure the coil to the engine. Spark plug number (2) is located directly under the coil. Lift the coil straight up removing the insulated connector from spark plug number (2). Using a spark plug socket, remove old spark and install a new one in it's place. Repeat same procedures for spark plugs number (3) and (4). Note: If you have the (6) cylinder engine, the front (3) sparks pluge are readilly accessible but in order to access the (3) rear spark plugs, you will have to remove the intake manifold

Any suggestions on changing back 3 plugs


THE BEST WAY TO DO IT IS FROM THE UNDERSIDE OF THE VAN. I'M NOT SAYING THIS IS EASY BUT IT CAN BE DONE FASTER THIS WAY IF YOU HAVE A LIFT.

DON'T TRY THIS WHEN THE ENGINE IS HOT.

Changing back spark plugs underneath engine cover


I'm fairly certain those motors require the upper intake manifold be removed to gain access to the rear spark plugs. You might be better off bringing it to a qualified technician as it gets fairly involved. If i remember correctly it's about a 2 hour job and requires a few gaskets.

Changing spark plugs


First remove the big plastic cover that covers the motor by taking off the oil fill spout.Then the plastic cover should just lift right off..No you should be able to see all of the front ones and the rear ones are a little tricky..You'll need a 3 to 6in. extension with a swivel next to the 5/8 deep well socket.Taking them out is usually the easy part to which reinstalling is a little more trickier.Make sure the plug socket you are using has the rubber piece inside of it because you don't want to break the plugs..And when putting rear ones in to use an old plug wire end or just the socket and three inch extension to start the threads because you dont want to cross thread them.After you have atleast threaded them in as far as you can get them and they went atleast 3 to 4 revolutions tighten them up and finish the rest in process you be great..Good luck to you and am always here to help you and anymore questions will be glad to help......

Changing spark plugs


as you know the front ones are rather easy to get to, but the rear bank is a bear..the best way is on a lift but you can get to them using a 3/8 rachet a 3inch extension and the plug socket.. take the air tube off the throttle body.. reach under the throttle body behind the engine you will feel the plug wires that way.. once you get the wires off the plugs are a pain but changable..
