Well, it is usually cheaper then having a shop do it for you. But it will require you to have some tools. In this case probable a 10mm and 5/8 spark plug socket and 6 inch extension and ratchet.

Other than that, you should be good to go.

97 acura 2.2 cl engine light p0302 code


A P0302 is indicating that cylinder # 2 is misfiring...Cylinder # 2 is the second plug counting from the front to rear of engine...Main causes for misfire are: defective spark plug, spark plug wire...When was last time plugs were changed? if it has been awhile I would suggest changing them...Also the spark plug wires should be replaced...Changing one plug and/or one wire isn't a good idea; change them all...Plugs cost two or three dollars apiece and a set of wires around $15...Standard motor products wire set # 4717...Spark plugs; Bosch platinum gaped at .044

Trouble with the car starting it has 55000 miles on it. it eventually starts after turning it over 2 or sometimes 3 times. im thinking it must be the spark plugs


Im not sure if that is the issue or not. It is possible but before I would tell you yes, I would want to know if you have changed the following as it is requested in routine maintenence.
air filter and fuel filter?
routine services? have they been done?
2005 really should not require spark plugs unless you have driven 100000 miles already.
If the answer is yes to all I have written. i would indeed check the
plugs but also consider checking air filter look inside throttle body with the hose off to see if it blackish looking, also try to put some fuel injection system cleaner in your vehicle with at least 3/4 of a tank of fuel.
You may even consider haveing your fuel pressure tested. These are things to always consider when it comes to hard starts.

No sparks from spark plugs in the 97 nissan maxima wont start up


This car has seporate coil packs for each cylinder, have you tried swapping the front bad one with a good one to see if they switch ?
The engine you just put in may have come with some blown coils.
Hope this helps

No sparks from spark plug


When was the last time the spark plugs were replaced? They sell an "Engine starting fluid" that you spray directly into your air intake hose to aid in the occasional start-up problem. Have used it before, works very well.

Every 30,000 miles you need an air filter, every 60,000 a fuel filter, every 100,000 spark plugs. That's it.
