If you remove the engine cover from inside the vehicle you will gain access to the spark plug wires and spark plugs. The spark plug wires come out of the distrubtor cap thats at the rear of the motor, the spark plug wires run to the left side of the motor and to the right side an end up attached to the spark plugs. Reolace spark plug wires one at a time so you dont mix them up, this is fairly easy the only difficult part is getting your hands in the small space in the engine compartment. Hope this was helpful.

erratic compression indicates a cam lobe problem or cam follower problem
with that many miles on it , the cam shaft will have wear on it but the rest of the motor will have considerable wear including possible ring problems on the numbered pistons
If the body is rust free consider a new -out of the box engine as a cheap plug to stop the repair waste of money

I took my 2005 Dodge Caravan in for an oil change and it is making a knocking noise. I took it back and the mechanic said the oil pump went bad and now the van needs a new engine. Is this correct?

That very well could be-- if you lose oil pressure, this can ruin your engine. You should have seen a red "oil light" indicating that there was a serious problem, to accompany the knocking noise, which could be "rod knock" if you had very low (or no) oil pressure.
Make sure you have someone else verify before giving this guy thousands of dollars.

I want to change the oil myself but I have never done it before. I have a 99 Dodge Dakota with 150k. It has a 4 cyl engine. I know the basics but not much more than that. How much oil should it...

changing oil is pretty much the same, 5 quarts is all you need and don't waste your valuable money on synthetic, at how many miles already on the truck you don't want to use a different type oil because a lot of the gaskets will start to leak, hope this helps

Try going to your local library and find a manual for your 2000 dodge that would save you some money buying the manual unless having the manual for yourself is good.
