You have to remove the upper intake manifold to get at the wires and plugs. Mitsubishi recommends 60,000 miles for spark plug replacement, if you look in your owners manual they also want you to replacet the spark plug wires also. Timing belt also at 60K

There are 2 coils for the 4 plugs, this is if it is a 4cyl. You simply pull the plugs out one at a time and using an extension on your 5/8 in. ratchet/socket set you can change them very easily, yo will need a 10mm socket to remove the coils to take out the 2nd and 4th spark plug, the recommended gap is .39-.43...took us about 20 mins once we got the right tools for the job...hope this helps...

I have just changed the plugs on my 2002 Shogun (UK) didn't have to remove the manifold only the throttle body and top half of the air filter housing. Disconnect wiring from throttle assembly, disconnect wiring from air filter, remove throttle body by removing 4 bolts, slacken the support bracket below and remove plastic cover to get access to the 3 coils, remove coils and the change plugs, other side a lot easier. Total time 2hrs approx.

SOURCE: how much is the cost

depending on what engine you have, the labor is 1.6 for the 3.0 v6 and 2.2 for the 3.5 v6. assume most shops charge $90 a hour for labor plus tax you're lookig at between 170 and 200 just for labor then plugs from mitsubishi are $13.73 retail, but aftermarket platinum plugs are a lot less, like $8 each. so depending on what plugs between 35 and 85. so unless you are wanting to do it yourself you are looking at between 200-250 for the 3.0 v6 or 230-290 for the 3.5 v6. if you are local i woudl do the job for way less : )

Changing spark plugs


Spark plugs look like this:

ngk-b8es---spark-plug.aspx.jpg

They are screwed into the engine head, and each has a wire (approx. 7-8mm or .25in) attached to the top of it. A dedicated spark plug wrench or socket is needed for removal of the plug after the wire has been disconnected from it.

How to replace a sparkplugs for a mitsubishi montero xls 2002


    • 1 Cool the engine before attempting to remove any spark plugs.
    • 2 Remove the spark plug wires located across the top of the Eclipse model's engine. The spark plug wires connected to the spark plugs are the flat circular ends. Grab the wire around the circle and twist to unlock the wire. Lift up on the wire to remove it from the engine. Some models with ignition coils above the spark plug may require you to unhook the wire from the ignition coil to remove the wire.
    • 3 Drop the socket with the extension and socket wrench attached into the cylinder well and on top of the spark plug. Turn the socket wrench to unscrew and pull the spark plug out of the engine.
    • 4 Spray silicone spray into the cylinder well and onto the new spark plug threads.
    • 5 Insert the new spark plug into the socket with the threads sticking out. Slide the socket into the cylinder well and gently turn the wrench to the right to thread the spark plug into the cylinder head.
    • 6 Use the tension tool to test the tension or torque of the new spark plug. Set the tension to the specifications listed on the spark plug package.
    • 7 Reattach the spark plug wire to the new spark plug.
    • 8 Continue this process with the other spark plugs. Be sure to only complete one spark plug replacement at a time.

it is probably the grommet between the valve coner and the spark plug tube you will have to remove the plenum and the plug wires to remove the valve cover to change the grommet and should do all six and check or change the plugs esp the oily one

Replacing spark plugs


unless you have a specific issue with the plugs , don't waste your money changing them
the v6 engine has the rear plugs as platinum plugs because it is near impossible to change them and modern engines
( manufacturer design fault in the location of the engine and so they fitted special plugs before installing the engine )
plugs last the life of the engine
if you are doing a "tune up" that is a waste of money as the ECM tunes the engine 60 times a minute
all you have to do for a "tune up" is to have the fault codes read for sensor problems

From what I have been reading online... The upper and middle manifold MUST be removed to get to the spark plugs to change them. 3 hour job minimum. should cost between $300 and $500.
