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

I replaced all 6 plugs and wires on my boyfriend's 2003 Caravan without removing anything, such as the window wiper assembly, but I weigh 125 pounds. The back spark plug on the right (next to battery) was almost as easy as the front three, but the last two were a pain. The middle one was pretty difficult because once the plug is out you need to blindly put the new one in without accidently getting a bunch of garbage in the combustion chamber. For the one near the air filter, by far the most difficult, I had to go to the store and buy a short ratchet and reach both arms in there to loosen the old plug one click at a time. That last plug is VERY deep in there, so I dont recommend a 90 degree ratchet like I used. If you dont have a strong, skinny-armed person at your disposal, I'd recommend taking it somewhere, or removing either the air filter or the wiper assembly.

Where are spark plugs located on a 1996 dodge caravan?

in the 4 cylinder they are located in the front of the motor just beside the exhaust manifold, in the 6 cylinder. they are in the front and the back (three per side) the rear plugs are hard to get to in that you need to reach far behind the motor but your arm will fit.

Where do i find my spark plugs in 2003 ford escape i do not see them would like to change them! thank you for your help ****

You actually do see them you just don't realize it. When you look at the motor from the top down you should see what looks like caps with wires running to them evenly spaced across both cylinders. You ahve to remove the retaining screw and then pull those up. Those are actually the independent coils that ford uses on top of each spark plug. You'll need a socket and extension to reach the plug itself, also, if you have the 6 cylinder motor you'll have to remove the upper intake in order to reach the the plugs nearest the firewall. On there were 6 retaining bolts for that I'm not sure about the 2003 because of design changes. You don't want to remove the intake manifold itself, just the top half of the intake itself.

2001 dodge caravan 3,3L

I was working for a company that used 1995 Caravan's for their sales force and I do not know of any sensor. I am confused by the term "cover".

Do you mean valve cover? If so does the sensor go somewhere? I can solve your problem, but I need move info. Please call or email me.

Either,way let me know the outcome. Your feed back is my only reward. Also, please rank my answer with as many thumbs as you think I should get.

Where is the temperature sensor on a 3.3 L 2003 dodge caravan found

I understand the coolant temperature sensor on a 2003 caravan is located just under the coil.
There are two sensors located in that position, it's the one toward the passenger side of the car.
I'm changing mine in the morning so I will know for sure and if it's not there I will return and correct this post.

Replacing spark plugs (2003 caravan); can be done from the top, reach around the engine (not over) from the transmission side to get to the rear spark plugs, I have done this twice.

Ignition Coil A,B,C Primary/Secondary malfunction

Remove the Caravan Ignition Coil Step1 Look under the hood for a distributor. The spark plug wiresmag-glass_10x10.gif connect into the distributor cap. If you don't see a distributor, you may have a model with a distributorless ignition system. Step2 Find the ignition coil. On a Dodge Caravan, the ignition coil is at the back of the intake manifold. Disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent injury while you work. Step3 Determine whether you need to remove the windshield wiper/motor module assembly. This won't be necessary on all models. Step4 Disengage the connector securing the wiring harness connector to the Dodge Caravan ignition coil. Then, disconnect the ignition wire from the ignition coil. Step5 Use a socket set to remove the mounting bolts. There are upper and lower mounting bolts. Separate the ignition coil from the mounting bracket. Install the New Ignition Coil Step1 Insert the new ignition coil. Mount the Dodge Caravan ignition coil to the mounting bracket. Step2 Attach the mounted assembly to the intake manifold. With a Torque wrench, tighten the fasteners securing the ignition coil to the mounting bracket with 96 inch pounds of torque (10 Nm). Step3 Tighten the bolts that secure the intake manifold to the bracket with 115 inch pounds of torque (13 Nm). Step4 Connect the wire harness and any other parts you removed, including the negative battery cable.
