    Changing Spark Plugs

    Quick question... where are the spark plugs located, I can't see them looking from the top of the engine bay. Also, once I find them, how hard is it to change them? My sti has 75k mi on it, is it necessary to change the plugs? Thanks for the help.

    Spark plug change? Very easy. Heres a tutorial, check out the tutorial forum in the future for all maintenance jobs, as well as some modifications. Subaru says change plugs every 60k. Look at your owners manual to see if it is time to change anything else, or if you have missed anything.

    Just thought I'd chime in while I was thinking of it. I was getting my car inspected the other day and thought while it's in the shop I'll have them change the plugs to avoid my own frustration with having to do it myself. So the guy behind the counter at the shop is pricing it out for me, $13 per plug (which is outrageous), then labor is 2.6 hours for a total of $192!!! So it would be well over $250 for a simple plug change. I opted not to have them do the work, needless to say and I'll do it myself someday soon when it warms up a little.

    I just changed mine out a few days ago and it only took an hour. It's not that bad.
