Question about 1997 Subaru Legacy

1 Answer

Where are all the spark plugs located?

We had three spark plugs changed. the 4th one could not be changed beacause the garge said it was placed in wrong and the head gasket needed to be removed in order to get to it. the car ran fine untill the three were replace and the 4th not the tech said the plug was fused in . i just want to know if this is the only way to remove it and possiobly the reason for the car missing on the cylinder as it is driving?

Could be the reason for your skipping, and no thats not the only way to do it. that is the most correct way to do it, sometomes you can pull the spark plug out and re-thread the hole. be sure to keep a small magnet around to catch the shavings as you dont want to many of these getting in your engine- either way it is not a fun job. hope this helps and good luck!

Why is 2003 Nisan Frontier Super Charged truck smoking and 4th, 5th, and 6th cylinders not firing after spark plug change? Put old spark plugs back in no change


If the engine is smoking and you have misfires on three cylinders, this is not a good thing. The best course of action at this point would be to pull all the spark plugs out and perform a compression test to help evaluate the extent of the damage.

I have a 2003 v6 toyota camry. i am changing the spark plugs for this vehicle. i am having trouble locating three of the six spark plugs as a mechanist told me there should be three more...where are they...


The back three spark plugs on the V6 are difficult to reach without a socket extension. if part of the engine is hindering you from taking out back plugs. then remove the part thats in the way. then replce when done. have a good day !!

98 Sportage changed new plugs, wires, and boot and (fuse?) for coil packs. But now misfiring on 4th cylinder. Prior to tune was only getting poor fuel economy no misfires at all. What would i fix next?


if you started out with no misfire at all and then got a misfire after the tune up that does seem strange, my best guess would be that the plugs are not gapped correctly or the spark plug wire is, not completely snapped on, or the wire on the 4th cylinder was damaged when it was removed, i would start out making sure all the wires are on, you will either hear of feel a small snap when the wire is seated on the plug good, also make sure the wire is connected to the coil good

I cant find 3 out of 6 spark plugs on a 3.0 can you help please i found the three up top in the back by the firewall


Hello! The back three plugs are located under the coils much like the front three. 4 mm Allen bolts hold the plastic cover in place.
#2-4-6 are left to right on rear bank. #1-3-5 are left to right on the front. If you are going to change the plugs they come gapped at .042". Use magnetic sockets (8 mm, 10mm) with a 10" extension.
You can make life easier by removing the Purge Control Valve to make access to #6 (two 12mm nuts).

The coils have green sliders that you push to release the coil connectors. Then unbolt the the coils, pull up and out; Walla!!! There are the plugs.

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
