#3296 of 3299 96 Trooper Sparkplug R&R
Oct 31, 2011 (5:34 am)
I was wondering how much of a pain it is to remove and replace the spark plugs on a '96 Trooper with the 3.2 V6. I took it to a mechanic just for an inspection and they recommended I R&R the spark plugs, but they want $250 just for the labor, because it's "a lot of work, you have to practically take apart the engine." I've done spark plugs on other cars and know this isn't the case, but I also remember trying to do it on my trooper many years ago and the rear driver's side spark plug was a big pain to remove because there is something blocking the path of a screw driver or socket. I'm pretty sure I'm being fleeced, but is this actually normal for this particular model? If not, does anyone have any tips on getting that rear driver's side SP out? Thanks.

I had the check engine for a while until I had the spark plugs and wires changed, I tried everything else before I did that with no luck. Hope that helps.

So, I've always wanted a Trooper-it's my dream car...really I've always wanted an older 2-tone one, but a '95 w/ 186k is what's available. They are asking $2,200, I know nothing of what to look for, I don't know if this was a good year for Trooper's or if there were a bunch of problems....I see hardly any posts on here about them...any suggestions?
