Anti clockwise to remove all plugs !
it may be spinning in the thred on the head !
if it is it will need to have a HELICOIL [ new thread] fitted after you get it out

I went to autozone and they did a diagnostic test. i got a code p0304 cylinder 4 misfire. what does anyone suggest ?


Dear Earl,
You have not supplied me with the year, make, or model of the vehicle, but for the past (about 20) years, the most common answer to your problem in the USA would be a bad "coil pack".
This is usually a tall skinny plastic thing that makes the spark for the spark plug, and has a wire connection on the bottom to energize it.
The top of it has either a hole for the spark plug wire, or a wire that goes to the spark plug.
The number of coil packs are according to the number of cylinders/spark plugs in the engine. ( Usually 4 or 6.)
God bless your efforts.

You may have a coil failure or spark plug failure on #3. Swap coil and plug of cyl#2 with cyl#3 and see if problem moves to cyl#2. If so, it will be a plug or coil. I wouls recommend changing both

WHERE ARE THE SPARK PLUGS LOCATED IN A 2004 CHEVY MALIBU


Thanks, Glad I can try, however, its very easy to locate. if there's a plastic trim/cover over the engine remove-it and set aside. The Spark Plugs is sitting right below the Ignition Cassette or Coil as it is also referred to, it may say ECOTEC on the cover, secondly, remove the electrical harness on right side of the cassette, it's just above the oil filler cap, then remove the four, 10 bolts and pull-up the Ignition cassette. All four Spark Plugs will be there for easy removal and replacement. Reverse actions will be in order... Here is what you will need to perform the repair: 3/8 in ratchet, 5/8 in Spark-plug Socket, 3/8 in extension 12 ins long and a #10 socket. For your 2004 Chevrolet Malibu with a 2.2 liter ECOTEC Engine. Hope this DIY was helpful!

Change spark plugs on 1998 Malibu V6 3.1


on the 3.1, it is easier to change back plugs if you remove the coil packs. so you can reach the plugs from the top of engine. it almost seems impossible but this will work. it will give more room to work.

Replacing spark plugs on a 2004 chevy malibu


2.2L Engine
  1. Observe the following service precautions:

    Allow the engine to cool before removing the spark plugs. Attempting to remove spark plugs from a hot engine can cause the spark plugs to seize. This can damage the cylinder head threads. Clean the spark plug recess area before removing the spark plug. Failure to do so can result in engine damage due to dirt or foreign material entering the cylinder head, or in contamination of the cylinder head threads. Contaminated threads may prevent proper seating of the new spark plug. Use only the spark plugs specified for use in the vehicle. Do not install spark plugs that are either hotter or colder than those specified for the vehicle. Installing spark plugs of another type can severely damage the engine.
  2. Turn the ignition OFF .
  3. Disconnect the Electronic Ignition (EI) module harness connector.
  4. Remove the spark plugs using a 5 / 8 inch spark plug socket.

To install:

WARNING Do not coat spark plug threads with anti-seize compound. If anti-seize compound is used and spark plugs are over-torqued, damage to the cylinder head threads may result.
  1. Inspect the gap on the new spark plugs, re-gap the plugs as required. The spark plug gap specification is 42 inch. (1.0 mm).
  2. Install the spark plugs and tighten to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
  3. Apply dielectric compound to the spark plug boots and make sure no corrosion is present.
  4. Install the ignition coil housing to cam cover and attachment bolts.
  5. Tighten the ignition coil housing bolts to 89 inch. lbs. (10 Nm).
  6. Connect the EI module harness connector. Push in until a click is heard and pull back to confirm a positive engagement.
