The spark plugs are mounted in the heads, which are bolted to the top of the engine block.

The Montana has a transverse (sideways) mounted engine, so 3 of the 6 plugs will be toward the radiator, and the other 3 will toward the firewall.

There is a procedure for getting to the rear 3 plugs that requires unbolting the "dogbone" mounts, and rotating the block toward the front of the vehicle to give better access to the rear plugs.

I'd suggest you go to your local auto parts store and purchase a vehicle specific repair manual (Haynes #38036) (Section1-20) which contains detailed instructions on how to accomplish this task.

It's not all that difficult, but be patient!

Above all else, good luck!

Before checking the spark plugs, ask yourself these questions. 1. Are your dash lights working when your turn the key. 2. Is your car making any noises when your turn the key. 3. Is there anything obvious that my keep your car from starting, you may be amazed what you find. Your spark plugs are located in the combustion chamber on the inside of your engine.

Where the spark plugs are locate in 2003 dodge stratus

What motor? Chances are you have the quad 4 and the plugs are located under thevalve cover. SHould see 4 black wires that go to the top of the motor (to plug boots) the spark plugs ae about 4 inches down. You will need a spark plug socket (i believe 5/8) and 10"extension. If you are not familar with how to remove the plugs I would recommend letting someons else do it. IF you break one of the plugs your really gonna kick yourself in the but. Good luck

I'm trying to locate the spark plugs in my suzuki 2008 sx4.

You remove the rectangular plastic cover on top of the engine(2 screws), under that is the plug wires and spark plugs. Pull wires straight up, remove plugs with proper spark plug socket, extension and ratchet, reverse to install.

Platinum plugs are not required but will allow longer change intervals. Check the gap but do not gap them, if they are not properly gapped. Bring them back and asked for new ones.

The metal's on the Platium plugs are harder then copper plugs and can break upon trying or break in your cylinder when in uses.

Good luck and hope this helps

I can't find the spark plugs in my 2005 sonata

To locate and change the (4) spark plugs on a 2004 Hyundai 2.4L 4 cylinder engine:
Remove the (4) 12mm bolts from the decorative plastic engine cover. Remove plastic cover from engine and place it off to the side out of your way.
Standing in front of the car, the (4) spark plugs are located laterally (left to right) in the recessed area underneath where the plastic engine cover was removed.
Note: This engine has (2) coils....They are located above spark plugs number (2) and (3) from left to right.
Starting with the fist spark plug on the left: Remove the spark plug cable by pulling straight up on the insulated connector. Using a spark plug socket, remove the old spark plug and install a new one in it's place.
To access the second spark plug from the left, remove the electrical connector and the spark plug cable wire from coil number (1) and then remove the (2) 12mm bolts that secure the coil to the engine. Spark plug number (2) is located directly under the coil. Lift the coil straight up removing the insulated connector from spark plug number (2). Using a spark plug socket, remove old spark and install a new one in it's place.
Repeat same procedures for spark plugs number (3) and (4).
Note: If you have the (6) cylinder engine, the front (3) sparks pluge are readilly accessible but in order to access the (3) rear spark plugs, you will have to remove the intake manifold.

Location of spark plugs

carmen.... locate the coil pack.... it has 6 wires going into the top of it. follow each of the six wires from there... they end at the spark plugs. if that motor is mounted sideways... which i doubt as i believe that is a rear wheel drive truck it should be pretty straight forward.
