SOURCE: spark plug change in a 1998 dodge intrepid

if you don t see any spark plug wires then your motor has coil packs(black colored boxwith 2 small electrical wires) located on top of motor 3 on one side,3 on the other.disconnect negative terminal on battery,then disconnect wire connector at each coil pack and remove 2 screws that hold down coil pack, pull gently straight up and plug is right there below coil pack

SOURCE: how to Change, back three plugs on a 2003 Dodge caravan 3.3l

you need to put a ratchet ******** the front of the engine and remove the dog bone engine mount this will allow the engine to be pulled forward with strap and you can reach behind and remove the plugs or you can get them from underneath the van hand tightened with a spark plug socket and wrench if you overtighten they will break

SOURCE: changing spark plugs

look under hood..you will see wires coming from distributor cap on top into your motor..if its an 8 cylinder there will be 4 in the back and 4 in the front.6 cylinder-3 in front 3 in back.get a 5/16 spark plug wrench and socket.you will need extension to reach back ones.if you bought new wires from parts store it will be even easier to find where plugs are located because you can compare the ones you bought and easier find the wires under the hood.the wire gets fatter as it goes into the motor.grab the fat part firmly and pull it off.boom theres your spark plugs.use your spark plug socket(5/16) with extension/ratchet and turn the plug until it comes out.do not break the plug or it will not come out.when you put a new one in screw it hand tight then 1 crank tight with the ratchet.when you change your wires do them one at a time as to avoid switching the wires up.on top of the distributor cap(where the wires lead to) there will be numbers as to what wire is for what cylinder...change plugs/wires 1 at a time dont take off more than 1 wire at a time!hope this helped!

SOURCE: how do i change the rear spark plugs in a dodge

There are tow ways to get to the plugs, You can get to them from the top or from the bottom. There's quite a bit a bit of room in the transmission tunnel, and you can reach up and actually touch the plugs. There is trouble with the "alternator plug" (#1) , Hard to reach it from below, and you may ended up removing the alternator bracket and shoving the alternator back. 
From the top end,  removed the windshield wipers/cowl assembly, the intake plenum, remove the bracket from the alternator, easy, and the hardest part is just removing the bracket holding a wire harness from the back of the plenum, the bolts are a little hard to get to due to the a/c lines, but after they were out the plenum removed with ease and I replaced the back plugs(with champion double platinum RN14PMP5 OEM's) and replace the spark plug wires with BWD Selects. They are very good wires. Used anti-seize of course. Mounted the wire harness bracket back, put the plenum(with new gasket), vacuum lines, sensors, and alt.bracket back on then changed out the front ones. Replaced Wipers and your good to go. 

Note: if from the bottom  rotate the alternator to get the pass side and from below to get the middle and drivers side. You can use a jack stands and a creeper. Takes about an hour. Yes it's a PITA but, going from below greatly reduces the chance of spinning a bolt head off or breaking something else in the process of getting to the plugs. No special tools needed.   Good luck and if your lazy like i am just change the front ones and have a local shop replace the rear, they have the lift and will only cost an hour shop rate in your area. $65.00/hour average

SOURCE: 2008 dodge avenger spark plug location and socket size.

  • 2008+ Dodge Avenger 2.4L 4cyl.
  • Remove plastic cover on top of engine, just pull on each corner for it is friction fit.
  • Once removed you will see 4 black spark plug covers with one hex type screw holding each.
  • Remove Hex screw and place aside, pull upward to remove plug boot from plug.
  • To remove the plug, use a 5/8 socket with a 6" extension. Once plug has been turned out all the way and you cannot get the plug up and out of the hole, just press the plug boot back on the plug and pull it back up.
  • Gap and replace 4 plugs with the same or equavalent type,. Drop plug down the hole and use socket to align and tighten until just snug, then torque to manufactures specifications.

2000Ford f 250 with a v10 is cutting out in misfiring


I discovered the REAR coil & spark plug on the passenger side somehow was full of water. It seems its a common trend in the 5.4 and the V10 that the rear plugs and/or the coil over plugs go bad because of water dripping in from the cowel.

After purchasing your new coils and plugs it is a simple job, Its just very Time comsuming it get the plugs removed and replaced. you should be able to figure it out quickly. ALSO new coils come with a new boot.

Is there a trick to changing the spark plugs on my 04 chevy astro i cant seem to be able to gain acess to them


changing plugs on these trucks is tough at the best of times.you need to remove the inside cover to gain access to the rear most plugs(rear 2 plugs on both sides),sometimes you have to remove the front two plugs on the drivers side from the front from under the hood.the front plug on the passenger side is removed from under the hood like the drivers side front plugs.there is very little room to do this job so patience and a cool head is veerry important.at times i have replaced the plugs on the passenger side from under the truck.

Backfiring just before it starts


Check to see if you have a crossed plug wire on truck. Also check for a cracked insulator on a spark plug or faulty spark plug wire. Check for a vacuum leak at the intake manifold, throttle body,or vacuum hose. Hope this will help you.
