How to do a spark plug change on a 2003 Jeep Liberty


how to move hands, ?
what tools
im i to guess this is your first spark plug pull even on a lawn-mower?

what engine do you have, 90% posts lack what engine it is on a engine question, and we are still guessing, and nuttn happens.
lets see.you pull HV wires 1 by 1, and replace them using a spark plug socket wrench.
if the engine has COP coils, those come off, first, (do tell got cops)>?

do not mix up the spark wires or it will not run.
why not watch youtube of 10000 doing this on all engines. to get a fell of the ways and means.... simple huh?
only start a spark plug by hand , never use a wrench.
rule1. end.
do not over tighten them (rule 2)

2.4L engine, 4 cylinder??????
this is my guess.
JEEP KJ
ill look that up for you.
ok i looked, the 2.4L uses coil pack
so rule 1 applies, DO NOT MIX the HV wires on the COIL PACK>
remove the spark plug wire from ONE spark plug]
remove the spark plug (turns counter clock wise)
put in new plug (right part number and gap it to spec.
torque it to spec, and put back the wire.
move to next plug wire and repeat.
success.

HV means those high voltage spark wires, that make you glow like a June bug if you get HIT. the 50,000 volt wires.

RE14MCC5 (Champion #) plugs
48 thou gap
but the hood sticker wins this ... not me.... read it.

the 3.7 has 6 cop coils , no signal coil pack.
my 3.8L has coil packs.
so as you can see , each engine is unique, by year and car.

Bought coil pack for 92 pontiac bonneville connected wires underneath pack and spark plug wires now will not start at all


Did you replace all three coil packs or just one?
Did you get the spark plug wires in theproper order? (if not it may not start).
What wire did you connect underneath the coil pack (there are no wires under the coil pack). A wire bolts/plugs up to the side of the coil pack.

Pontiac 3400 misfire problem one new coil pack new plugs and wires on still running bad have too press gas too start now bad fuel mileage unburnt fuel smoke when engine starts for a few seconds then stops...


some of the cylinder wont get spark, faulty spark plug, wire or coil. To check pull all spark plugs out, plug them to the wires and put on the engine top and then cranck the engine to see which spark plug not giving a spark

Ignition coil problematic primary feed


older post.
how many miles, how many miles for the last tuneup.????

The PCM CREATES spark. on all cars since about 1991.
the only changes are where they hid the IGNITOR.
or how may spark coils you have.
my guess, is your enigne is 3.8L just like my 08
where is the coil pack, well see those spark plug wires.
the go directly to the top mounted coil pack. see that?

the PCM monitors the rail coil , the 3.8 has a 3 COIL pack.
and each coil runs 2 cylinders. like this.
so what is the first thing to do here.
easy , put in new spark plugs.
try doing the tuneups. in the glove box guide.
page 433 , at 102,000 miles. spark plugs and cables.
mine has only 60,000 miles, and they both were bad.
spark plugs and HV, wires so I upgraded to NGK mag wires.
and new NGK plugs.
if it still fails, then try a new coil pack.


HV= high voltage wire sets.

I'm only getting spark out of one of the coil packs and the car turns over put won't start, please help me. Thank you


Try switching the ignition coil with the other coil and plug it in and check for spark again. If it works in the other coil location, then you need an ignition coil. Your engine is bad for valve cover gasket leaks which deteriorate the spark plug wires, so if you are going to put in plugs and wires with the new coil, I would recommend replacing the valve cover gasket and spark plug tube seals(included with the valve cover gasket set).

Car turns over but won't start. battery good, alternator about to be replaced, though alt. has nothing to do with the problem. what next?


it sounds like either your not getting spark, or fuel at the engine. it could be the coil packs/plug wires or the fuel pump/filter its hard to say what to do first. when you get in the car and turn the ignition on to the position just before turning the engine over you should be able to hear the fuel pump kick on in an attempt the prime the fuel system. if you can smell fuel at the engine after cranking for a few seconds its probably getting fuel. if you have access to an ohm meter with a wire clamp you can test each of your plug wires as you crank it to see if your getting spark. each coil pack sends spark through two plug wires. if you cant read a signal from two of the plug wires trace them back to the coil packs and if they go to the same coil pack that coil pack has gone bad. if they go to separate coil packs you may have two coil packs malfunctioning. this is where i would start i hope it helps.

Autozone says it's #4 not firing and to put some gas treatment in. and new plugs and wires. still misfiring.


Check ignition coil pack for spark, at ignition coil with engine running disconnect one spark plug wire at a time, they should all spark, if no spark out of any of the coil pack, replace coil pack.

Not getting spark


Testing the coil packs.

1. Get an INSULATED wire and hook it to a ground on the car.
2. Get some one to help you
3. pull a spark plug wire off the coil
4. hold grounded wire close to, but not touching, the part where the spark plug wire connects
5. keep hands away from coil and have your helper turn the engine over ( start car and turn off)
6. if there was a spark between the wire and the coil pack it is good. if not, the coil pack needs replaced
7. replace the spark plug wire
8. test the rest
