Volvo S60 Spark Plugs & Upper Engine Mount Replacement

This is a brief video of how I changed the spark plugs and the upper engine torque mount on my 2003 Volvo S60 2.4T. I used Bosch Platinum spark plugs, as Bosch is the OEM spark plug provider for Volvo, and the Bosch Platinum is very similar in specs to the Volvo plug. The only big difference is the price (60$ vs. 15$). Also, older S60's without the new upper engine torque mount have a tendency to crack and fall apart over time. So instead of buying just a new rubber piece, I installed the re-engineered mount that Volvo came out with in 2005. The OEM mount is made by Hutchinson, and costs only about 45-50$. There is no real point in replacing the old rubber piece, as the price and labor involved to replace the old mount will probably be about the same as putting the new redesigned on in. Also, the information to complete this repair was found on As much as I love using a ripped off version of Volvo's VIDA, downloading repair manuals without getting constant error messages and having to do endless resets is worth getting Alldata. Please leave comments with any questions!

Engine Vibration Testing Before and After Spark Plug Change
Changing the spark plugs on my Toyota Corolla and testing the engine vibration with my smartphone before and after to see if there was any difference. Not much of a noticeable difference as I show in the video. Special thanks to this smart guy, Nevin Williams, for the great idea! Thank you for watching!
