Your car is misfiring. You should not drive the vehicle while it is misfiring. If you want to DIY it you can start with you ignition system. Make sure all spark plugs, plug wires, and ignition coils are secure and in good condition.

Showing codes where? With a DIY diagnostic reader? If it is misfiring, your plugs and/or wires could need replaced, or it might be your timing is out. I would start with replacing plugs and wires. If it still misses and if you know what you are doing, check the timing (timing light required). Otherwise, take it in and have a pro check it for you

How do I change spark plugs on a 2002 Mitsubishi Montero, and how long should they last? Thanks.


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

The car lurches and lunge at times as if it is not getting fule properly, I want to change the fuel filter but not sure where it is located


I just replaced the fuel filter in my 2002 LeSabre last night. It is under the car, about foot in front of the drivers side rear wheel, about 16" in. My fuel line at the screw on connection had some rust, so I think I may need to have that replaced.

I have the same problem with the "lurch and lunge". I cleaned my MAF Sensor, changed my plugs and ignition wires, and now changed the fuel filter. The car runs much better, but I still get the "lurch and lunge" if I step hard on the gas after slowing down (like for a turn). So, if I hit the gas hard when I'm going around 10mph, it still happens.

For your benefit (and mine), what other components could cause the problem and are DIY replacable.
