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.

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!

2004 Chevrolet Malibu mix v6 LS engine turns but will not start


Check for fuel, spark, and then compression. Fuel problems can be pump, pump relay, fuse, filter, line, etc. Spark problems can be distributor module, distributor, coil packs, power to distributor or coil packs, plug wires. Compression problems would be piston rings, piston walls, piston rods.

What should the spark plug gap for a 2004 chevy malibu be?


The spark plug gap for this application is 0.60 Although, the spark plugs are Iridium plugs and are pre set by the manufacuter and should not be tampered with due to damaging the diode on the plug. The correct application for this vehicle should be AC DELC0 IRRIDIUM SPARK PLUGS.

2004 chevy malibu 4 cylinder seems like it is fighting for gas and it bogs down. there is crackling under the hood like rice crispies in milk.what could it be?


Try opening the hood at night and while the engine is running, carefully look for blue sparks around the plug wires. A lot of time when the wires get old, the electricity will arc to any metal parts that it can. Check along the whole length of the wires and down by the spark plugs. Also make sure all of the spark plug boots are properly connected to the spark plugs by pushing them on firmly when the engine is off.

2004 chevy malibu classic spark plug replacement


Search for the engine model ECOTec 2.2 rather then Malibu. It is very easy to replace the plugs, they are DEEP inside the engine so you will need a 6" socket extension for the spark plug socket. Needle nose pliers were required to retrieve the socket on the first plug. Don't push down hard on the plug, just enough to engage the nut. Full screen photo sequence is available at:
