Title: Mazda 6 S 2004 3.0 v-6 -spark plug removal (rear3)

Article: Congratulations New or used Mazda owner. You have made a great choice

in buying this model.I have recently encountered a dilemma however; when

changing the spark plugs- you are going to need 1.)about 2 or 3 hrs., a 10mm.

socket on 3/8 ratchet, and a 5/16 or metric equiv in order to simply expose the

back 3. You're front three are easy as pie-simply unbolt the spark plug

(electrical device)and gently pull exposing plug.The back 3 are underneath the

intake manifold. First carefully undo the 3 bolts to remove dust cover(do not be

rough as they are costly)and then proceed to unbolt intake manifold. undo

adjoining vacuum lines. *[Note although the bolts will not come out all the way

just loosen them all the way ;they will stay in the manifold but it will come

out with them in it.]* Be extremely careful when removing manifold as it has


that can tear. Most local parts stores don't have them -you gotta buy them at

the dealership. now replace plugs. and reverse the order to reassemble. Now

thank God that it'll be a while before you do it again!{I personally recommend

using N.G.K "iridium" spark plugs} they really make a phenomenal difference!

How do you Change spark plugs for 2002 Mitsubishi Galant?

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...
