You have to remove the intake manifold to access the plugs in the back.

To remove the intake manifold on the eclipse it is important to firstly remove the air intake, breather hose and the sensor at the top of the manifold. The battery should also be removed to remove the intake manifold on an eclipse.

You either have to remove the intake manifold. Or If you have small hands like me and remove them very slowly from the side of the intake system

Remove the retaining bolts from your 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse manifold. The manifold will come off. Remove the manifold gasket. Clean the surface and put the new manifold gasket on.

This should be similar to a 1995, on it you have to remove the intake manifold to access the plugs, I have had one mechanic tell me he had special tools to avoid the removal but I never saw them.

Isuzu rodeo 4 cylinder sparkplug changevery important remove the cables and sparkplugs 1 at a time so you wont confuse the cables later on. i got a 97 4 cylinder. you will need 2 small extensions to reach the sparkplugs. on the top right you will have to remove with a Philip screwdriver the air hose(aprox. 3" thick) to have easy access to the sparkplugs.

To change timing belt on an Eclipse GT, disconnect the negative battery cable and remove the alternator belt. Also remove power steering pump, alternator, and air conditioning compressor. Remove distributor cap and remove the timing belt. Replace with new.?รฆ

Just remove the coil on top of the plug.

Remove the intake manifold. The starter is underneath.

Underneath the coils. Remove the plastic head cover, Lossen all the coil pack bolts and fasteners, remove the coils and you will see the sparkplugs in the holes you just uncovered.

You have to remove the intake before you can gain access to the thermostat housing

No you do not. Just remove the top black plastic piece that's bolted to the top of the intake.

Pretty straight forward. You must remove the intake manifold in order to replace the gasket.

Remove the cold air intake assembly and mass flow sensor unplug the spar plug connector from each spark plug and use a spark plug socket to remove all this after you unplug the battery for one hour and take the timing/valve cover cover off. Class Dismissed. I taught you nothing.
