Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2002 Sebring has 92K miles.  Changed the plugs today.  After changing, the engine is running rough, and the check engine light is on.  Any help out there?

1 Answer


ok...starting pulling plugs again. first one I pulled was a bad plug, the gap was smashed shut, rookie mistake not catching that. checked two more, and they were fine. replaced the bad plug with one of the old ones and the engine is running smoothly again. check engine light is still on, I am wondering if that is because there are 5 new plugs and one old that signaling the computer that there is an issue. Any thoughts?
