How do i change the spark plugs in a 2003 chevy malibu?


On this model it has a 3.1 liter v-6 the coil pack is near the firewall and coil pairing (firing order) 1-4,2-5,3-6 the front cylinders are the easy to replace that 2,4,6 and the rears are 1,3,5 starting from the fan belt . suggest using your phone to take several pictures so you do not get the wires mixed up. most of the wires have a metal housing surrounding the plug boot this is to be installed on the new wires. as engines heat up and cool down this wires are like welded to the spark plug. so pulling and twisting the ends is normal (of coarse swearing is involved also) After replacing the spark plugs remember to put a silicone grease inside the spark plug boot for easier removal next time you decide to change the spark plugs

Jeep 3.7 cylenders 2 & 4 not firing


3.7 V6, mileage?

most likely the HV wires bad.

then bad coil pack.

did you check spark directly at the coil pack?

i use 2 known good HV wires to do that and 2 good test spark plugs.

both plugs grounded to engine (shell)

that is how you test any wasted spark coil pack. 3 coil pack.

if that fails the FSM shows, unplugging it and check the coil resistances. if wrong the pack is bad,

keep in mind the res. can read ok and coil be bad ,due to internal insulation break down (internal shorts)

if thats ok. the resistance , make sure the wires are not (primary)

to the coil (the low voltage connnector)

if that is ok, its mostly likely a bad coil, (pray not bad PCM)

if tool-less? start with cheap parts , work to expensive. (guessing)





now wasted spark 101.

if one line opens , both spark plugs die. no spark

the wasted spark is wired in SERIES. ( like Christmas lights)

the magic cuts cost of 6 coil\'s.

so if the HV wires are say, cheap , carbon wire and open

you lose, both spark plugs. use MAG wire and end this issues.

get some nice NGK mag wire or Bosch Mag wires.

you can see i hate carbon wire. for good causes.

(carbon string wire)

mag wires is real wire that is coil spun and is inductive. it

has the correct impedance but is not a resistor its and inductor.

and lasts the longest , and worth every penny.

How much does it cost to have spark plugs and wires put in acura 2.3cl 2002


Well, now.
Spark plugs generally run from 3 - 10 dollars each, and spark plug wires run from 30 - 130 a set.
Now I'll do some estimating:
If you have a V-6 motor, that is 6 X 6 = $ 36 plugs and $100 wires = $136 + tax.
However, garages and shops get labor from $ 30-100 dollars to do this.
So, $ 136 parts plus $ 70 labor = $ 206 + tax.
Next thing to remember:
1) Spark Plugs today are good for 100,000 miles a set.
2) Spark plug wires can easily last 10 years.
3) and most important is - tune -up shops are in business to sell you plugs and wires whether you need them or not. They HAVE to sell them to stay in business.

Hello my name is jesee and i have 97 honda civic coupe and i have a code readn of p303 now what does this mean? i would have to change in order to get code off?


Hi, this is a misfire on cylinder 3. #3 is third back from the fan belt. Remove the spark plug, reattach the wire, and hold the plug to the engine metal while someone cranks the engine to see if the plug is sparking. If not, you need to replace the wire or the plug. Try changing the plug first, as wires are expensive. If the plug sparks OK, then the problem is likely a burned exhaust valve or a clogged injector. These require more work. Please get back to me if you want tpo know how to check those.

How do you change the spark plugs....can't seem to get the spark plug wires off/loose....don't want to break by continued pulling on them


U DIDNT SPECIFY YEAR BUT SOUNDS LIKE THEY HAVE BEEN ON THE PLUGS FOR A WHILE AND OXIDATION SETS IN ON CONNECTOR. IF YOUR HAVING THAT MUCH OF A PROBLEM A SET OF WIRES MAY BE NECESSARY. IF U CANT GET THEM OFF BY HAND YOUR LOCAL PARTS STORE SHOULD SELL SPARK PLUG WIRE REMOVAL PLIERS. THEY ARE USUALLY PRETTY CHEAP. AND WHEN U PUT THE NEW ONES ON SPARK PLUG BOOT GREASE IS CHEAP AND WORKS WONDERS SO THE NEXT TIME THIS WONT HAPPEN

Cost to replace spark plugs on 2003 maxima


you have 6 spark plugs, i would recommend the NGK v-power spark plugs for your car. the average cost on those type of plugs are $4.59 each so you would need 6 of them. i always replace spark plug wires everytime i buy new spark plugs however your particular car is what they call Coil-on-plug wires and are very expensive. you would have over $100.00 or so in 6 of these total, i would not replace these on your car unless you are having a major mis-fire and possibly need them.
