How do you replace the spark plugs on a 1999 Mitsubishi Montero Sport LS?
YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE A HARD TIME YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO TAKE OUT INTAKE MANIFOLD TO GET TO ALL DRIVERS SIDE PLUGS AND THE ONE ON THE PASSENGER SIDE GOOD LUCK
what kind of answer was that, is their anyone with brains out there
***the person is 100% right. I just had my brother in law change my plugs and wires, Auto body wanted to charge me 500.00 dollars, because of the difficulty
Go to www.monterosportonline.com and they will give you detail by detail including pics. Best of luck because there is a lot of work to do.
Yes correct the intake will have to come off , but i am trying to find out why there may have been sludge on the spark plugs is it normal because they are located in the valve cover or not?
Yes the plugs go thru the valve covers. if there is oil or sludge as you say on the outside of the plugs,you will ned to change the valve cover gaskets felpro's gasket set comes with new orings for each hole to prevent oil leaking thru onto the plugs.
This tune up isnt for the weekend oil change guy but you can do it if you take your time and have a good memory........theres alot of unbolting, wire harness unpluging and vacuum unplugging as well! ya might wanna take pics as ya go so everything goes back together correctly. Mark all the spark plug wires at the coil so ya know where they plug it at cause once its together ya cant tell who is who! The firing order is on the wrote on the intake.
We have a 1995 Mitsubishi Montero (the people that brought your the fighter ZERO) and when it came time for a tune-up we couldn't get the plugs out. The car dealer here charged us over 500 dollars for a tune up and they had to remove the top part of the engine to reach the plugs, hence the large dollar value. We will NEVER own another Mitsubishi again! Good luck:)
THe spark plugs are buried! IT is one of the frustrating designs of this car! It takes a couple of hours for a trained mechanic to do the work and even longer for the untrained. If you have the work done, get the best, most expensive spark plugs to replace them with. I wnt 60K on my first set and am 30K into my second set.
first of all you have to consider several things. 1. what is the mileage? if you have high miles you will want to change the valve cover gaskets. The reason is you will need to remove the plenum to get to the plugs and you will want to do this right the first time. 2. change your plugs while you are in there. This is very easy to do. It looks intimidating but invest the…
Although the 93 Dodge Stealth basic engine mechanicals are the same as one for a Montero, you would probably have to use different engine mounts and there may be a problem with how the engine mounts to the transmission. Then theres the possible problem of the engine computer for the Montero not working with the donor engine and the wiring harnesses not having the same plugs as the Stealth.
2 hours if your top notch technician. You have to remove the upper intake manifold before you get to them. And about 6 hours if you are not a top notch technician. Just remember to mark everything with a paint pen or marker of so sort, even take photos to try and help with putting the manifold back together.
Why would a 2002 Montero Sport shake and stall out when brought to a stop but only every now and then?
Do you have to replace the intake gaskets on a 2001 Montero when you do a tune up since you have to take the intake off to get to the spark plugs We did not and it will not idle now any suggestions?
Why after the plugs and wires were changed on a 1996 Mitsubishi Montero Now the third coil for plugs 3 and 6 will not fire?
Seems to me that if you have fire coming from the coil to the distributor and only cylinders 3 and 6 are not firing, the distributor has to be the culprit? The distributor does this job by using the energy from the coil and makes the transfer by cap and rotary button. Check for correct firing orders too? Grabbing a manual can be worth its weight in gold also, usually found at any auto parts…
How do you replace the headlight bulb on Mitsubishi Mirage passenger side and how do you remove the rubber boot?
The plugs i believe are near the exhaust manifold.... If you are unfamilliar with changing plugs you should not do it yourself Because the plugs are near such high heat they are prone to fouling Try to use NGK plugs and spring for the irridium As you may already know never change plugs on a engine that is warm or hot. First thing in the morning stone cold is the best time to do it…
