I just did this over the weekend with my fathers help. The spark plugs are located right on top of the valve cover(whatever you call it) There are 2 coils for the 4 plugs, this is if it is a 4cyl. You simply pull the plugs out one at a time and using an extension on your 5/8 in. ratchet/socket set you can change them very easily, yo will need a 10mm socket to remove the coils to take out the 2nd and 4th spark plug, the recommended gap is .39-.43...took us about 20 mins once we got the right tools for the job...hope this helps...if you have a 6cyl, I can't help you out...
2002 galant , can't find the spark plugs
how to change number 6 spark plug on a 2006 mitsubishi galant
It is most likely your spark plugs and or wire set. All of this is easy to change. There is another forum that explains how to change your spark plugs for your Galant.
You must remove the entire intake manifold for you to have access on the three spark plugs located underneath it. it is advisable that a qualified Mitsubishi technician should do this.
you need to take the intake off to get to the back three plugs...
remove intake manifoled to access back 3 plugs. time consuming but can be done
pcm or crank sencer
Most had a V-6 under the hod, which would mean 6 spark plugs.
When changing the spark plug gaps it is important to remember the gap size. The gap size for a 2003 Mitsubishi Galant 4 cyl spark plugs is 0.044 inches.
if its got a v-6 in it it has 6, if its a 4 cyl. it has 4
there are 4 thick wires right on top o the engine take each out and u will see the plug
My 2002 Galant has not had spark plugs replaced for over 100k due to where they are. Three are underneath the intake manifold. Yes...intake has to be removed. Not difficult now that I know. Lots of bolts and hoses need to be removed to lift the manifold.
A tune up for a Mitsubishi Galant can mean several things. But the most common focus is replacing the air filter, fuel filter, spark plugs, wires and routine maintenance.
make sure the gapping on the plug is correct to what the vehicle needs
Its under the piece of plastic on top of the engine.
Spark plugs, wires, air filter, 5 quarts of oil
Dont you mean where is Jimmy Hoffa, what happens when you fly over the Bermuda Tri-angle?, Who shot kennedyThese are questions easierly answered.Good luck !
THE GAP IS POSTED ON A STICKER UNDER THE HOOD JUST ABOVE THE RADIATOR.
you have to remve the intake manifold
Every 30,000 miles except platinum plugs
Its best you use the fitted platinum tip ones (no adjustments needed). You can find these at NAPA.
im sorry to say man, but the other 3 spark plugs u cant find, are under the exaust manifol.. its an $800 tune up for these galants.. sucks but its reality.. good luck..You can have the plugs changed for around $500.00. Been there & done it.
Most likely bad plugs or firing order isn't right, i would start by checking the order you got the plugs and if that's not it check the plug wires.
when do you change spark plugs
remove the black boot cover, using a deep socket remove the spark plug. all 4 are on top. it is very simple and only taked 10-15 minutes. the 2001 galant does not have spark plug wires like most cars. i replaced mine with PLAT 4+ plugs and cut my gas by 1 tank per week.
