Default Misfiring cylinders...

I can feel this slight pop when I let the car lay around 3krpms, and then when I bring it up to 4krpms...My friend was telling me that it was a misfiring cylinder. So in like a day or so I am ripping out the champion plugs (stocks) and putting in NGK's...can anyone give me advice on changing the plugs in this car?

super easy. you just need a 6-8inch extension for you rachet some anti seize compound, dielectric gel and you have to unscrew the 2 bolts that hold in the wiper fluid resovoiur. that should make the job nice and easy

Wild... someone else with the same problem. I'd get the plugs changed ASAP... only thing I had trouble with is the silly fact that the plugs are 6-inches down in the heads... had to steal the wife's RS to go get a magnet to pull them out.

BUT, that did not solve my problem (which was almost exacly what you are describing). My GT is in the shop right now... it could barely limp over to the shop. Could be any number of things, likely electrical: Plug Wires, Coil Pack? I'll know tonight.

Exclamation It's not the plugs!

I have ngk's with only 2k on them and my 00 rs misfires.
Subaru said that was why the check engine light was on(SO IF IS IN FACT A MISFIRE)the light will eventualy come on.
My problem is I'm runing lean (not enough gas because of custom intake)Well subarus make all type of popping sounds anyways
Dealer took it for a ride and said it's pullin' real good! Yeah I thought so!

Hey Terry I'm bringin' my car to Metric for clutch too,It's had that cold shudder since I got the car in September.
Shet I thought it was me for a while till I heard about this problem!

edit:PS. You can use the plug wires them selfs to pull out the plugs!Ya know what I mean?

Default My problem...

Well, my car is doing *way* more than misfiring... there is *no* pull at all, the engine barely runs. I understand that I may have been getting more air with a slightly modified intake, but this is a way different issue...

And I *tried* to use the boots to pull the plugs... the buggers would not come out... Hey, it was my first time changing them on the Scoob... I'll know better next time!
