How to Replace the Spark Plugs in a Crossfireby Robert Good
The Chrysler Crossfire is a 2-door coupe sports car with a 3.2 liter in-line V6 engine with an overhead cam, three valves per cylinder and six spark plugs. There are three spark plugs on the right side of the engine and three spark plugs on the left side of the engine. Before you install the six new spark plugs in the Chrysler Crossfire, you will need to gap the spark plugs to the specifications of your Chrysler Crossfire model.
Open the Crossfire's hood and locate the rubber caps connected to the ends of each spark plug. Disconnect the battery and then pull the rubber caps off the spark plugs.
Connect the ratchet extension to the ratchet and connect the spark plug socket to the ratchet extension. Remove all of the spark plugs from the engine, using the ratchet.
Gap all of the new spark plugs using the gaping tool. Gap the new spark plugs to the specification found in the owner's manual for your specific Crossfire model.
Insert the tip of one of the spark plug into the spark plug socket. Insert the new spark plug into the spark plug housing and tighten the spark plug. Repeat this process for all of the other remaining spark plugs.
Tighten all six spark plugs, using the torque wrench. Tighten the spark plugs to the torque specifications for your specific Crossfire model. Replace the rubber caps to the spark plugs, reconnect the battery and close the hood of the car.
