I just changed the rear spark plugs on my 1997 Chrysler Town & Country this weekend. It took me about 7 hours to do everything. When you replace the rear spark plugs, its a good item to replace everything i have listed below. Listed below are the items i changed while i was in there:

Valve Cover Gaskets
All 6 sparks (the rear are the hardest) I used the Bosch Plat. +4
Intake manifold gasket (only cost $3-4)
Throttle body gasket.
Air filter
Spark Plug Wires

I also bought some throttle body cleaner and sprayed the throttle body to clean it out. When the throttle body is dirty your van can stall.
I took pictures of everything i took apart, which i can email you to help you out.

Thank You,

well you can reach around the top of the engine to get to the rear plugs or go underneath and get at them from the bottom. you can remove the wiper cowling to gain access more room as well.

Town and country van started hesitating and engine(?) exhaust(?) back firing? it has plenty of oil, wondering if it's a fuel filter?

Hello, I have seen a lot of these vans back fire because of bad plugs. The reason being two of the back spark plugs are very hard to get to and when a lot of shops did a tune up they don't replace them. So it probably needs them 2 plugs changed for sure.

I want to do a tune up on my 2001 town and country.What do i need to do to get at the back spark plugs?

They are often easiest to change from underneath at the backside of the engine which is very hard to do unless you have it on a hoist.

Engine light comes on and flashes 5 pause and then 1 wht it means?

on many vehicles especially a chrysler/dodge product, anytime the check engine light flashes is due to a misfire whether it be electrical or fuel related.check the coil, spark plug wires especially on the rear head towards the firewall , and spark plugs if tune up hasnt been done recently. hope that helped you!!

How do I get to the spark plugs in a 2001 chrysler town and country

3.3l or 3.8l fronts are easy. Back three, welcome to hell. From underneath, reach up along exhaust to get to the plugs and wires. If you don't want that easy approach, you remove the front cowling under the windshield that also houses the wiper motor assembly. Get parts from dealer (they are cheap and you don't want to do this again)
