basic rules.

1 remove the cable.
2. use the right size socket and insert it to the plug.
3. loosen the plug and clean or replace.
4. tighten it back.
5. do it one at a time. it would be confusing to install the wires back if you pull them at the same time.

tnx 4 using fixya and tnx 4 asking,

so u have a CH/CG lancer

you would need to remove the two 10mm bolts from the coil packs and leads and then stick the smaller version of spark plug socket in remove them, bear in mind if u have a mivec motor the spark plugs MUST be Platinum :)

SOURCE: idle speed problem

I ve had a 97 Mitsubishi Legnum and it wasn't idelling at all.(so in trafic brake and accelarator pretty dangerous) The idelling motor was buggered. Replaced with a 2nd hand idelling motor. Still doesn't idle perfectly. But works OK. It wasn't idleling well in temperaturers below 0. but after a while will be fine now.
Mitusubishis are known for their idelling motor problems. Good luck...
