Spark plugs are always either located on top of valve cover or front or back of cylinder head. Always use the correct tooling which is a spark plug socket which has a rubber seeling in the inside to hold the spark plug while removing and protecting the plug from breaking. Its good to get the recommended spark plug and checking the spark plug gap before replacing new one.

AnswerTrace the spark plug wires from the distribution system and you will find that they are on the back side of the engine (nearest the firewall). No, there is no EASY way for the layman to change any plugs located like that. Feel is the best way to get them out -feel where plug is, guide the plug socket over plug, undo it and remove. In some cases, you can use a dental type mirror to reinstall the plugs. I suggest doing them one at a time to keep your firing order in line. AnswerActually I have a 2000 Mitsubishi Galants and they are not on the backside of the engine. Mine are on topside of the engine behind the oil cap. There are two types of spark plugs on the 2000 Galant. Two that are connect to a psuedo-distributor and the other two have small black boxes on the which are computer sensors that are constantly reading the spark timing. It is actually very easy to change them. The plug wire socket pops off and then you can screw the plug out. just make sure that when you remove the two with the computer boxes on them that you do it very carefully not to bend or bang the box, cuz them you'll have a problem. AnswerJust changed the spark plugs on my 2000 Galant 4cyl....very easy! The above answer is very informative, the plugs are located directly on top of the motor behind oil cap.The only thing I will add:make sure you have some way to remove the plug from the engine(the plugs are about 7" down inside the motor)once you loosen the plugs you still have to some how get them out.I didnt have a tool that would fit down the hole to grab it so I stuck a few pieces of bubble gum into the spark plug socket and they came right out(kinda like putting gum on the end of a stick to get a coin out a gutter)It takes a total of 15min.Good Luck. :-)
