I have the V-8 version but have found the easiest method is to gain access through the rubber flaps just above and behind the front tires (inside the fenderwells). I simply pull out a few plastic clips that allow the rubber flap to be pulled aside and use a socket and exstention to reach the plugs. Afterwards, simply put the rubber flap back in place and push the plastic clips back into their holes.

On my 2000 Mountaineer, One side is accessibly from top. Other side, take off wheel. take off mud covers and access was easy. Not sure if this will be helpful on 97.

Hello I had to remove the curtains from the inside of the front fender wells to access the spark plugs on my 1998 Mountaneer. Be prepared to replace the curtains because most of the clips will break when removed. Hope this helps.

There are two plugs on the rear side of the transfer case. One upper and one lower. These are the drain and fill plugs.

the library should have a shop manual for this vehicle, you can make copies of the right sections :)

Pull off the upper intake plenum and you will have access to the plugs and wires.

To change the spark plugs, the ones on the left side (driver's side) of the engine are accessible from the top of the engine under the hood. The plugs on the right side (passenger side) are accessible by pulling the right front wheel and removing the rubber dust cover (pops off) that attaches to the fenderwell. This is assuming that you have a 5.0L V8 engine (302ci). Have Fun!!!

For the driver's side three, it will take some reaching to get to them but for the passenger side plugs, you need to remove the tire to access the plugs through the wheel well.

Check the Vehicle Emission Control Information ( VECI ) decal in the front of your engine compartment . It will show what type of spark plug to use and the spark plug gap

Under the throtlle body / upper intake manifold which needs to be removed to access the 3 spark plugs on the driver's side. The other 3 are on the passenger side of the engine.

in a perfect world. you CAREFULLY remove the 2 plastic covers on the valve covers to access the coils (driver's side) and plug wires (passenger side), then change out the plugs.

The spark plugs on a 1999 Mercury Cougar are located under the cover of the engine. The spark plugs should be changed approximately every 60,000 miles.

If you remove the air filter box, you will have plenty of room to access the plugs.If you remove the air filter box, you will have plenty of room to access the plugs.
