Changing Spark Plugs

First off, on this model you don't have plug wires, you have coil packs with a boot and coil connected to the pack. The boot slides on the tops of the spark plug. The good thing about this is that you don't have to mark each wire to its location.

So to replace the plugs you need to disconnect the electrical connector to the coil pack and then unbolt the two bolts that mount the pack down, then remove the pack.

Next with a ratchet, an extension and a special spark plug socket, which has an insulator inside to protect the porcelain from getting cracked, remove the spark plugs.

Next step is to replace the plug, usually I slide off the boot from the coil pack and then remove the coil from inside the boot and slide the boot over the spark plug and start to thread the plug back in. Using this method allows to you feel if you are threading the plug in right. Then with a torque wrench you would torque the spark plug to the specs for the type of engine you have.

3.2/3.5L Engine (20 ft-lbs)
2.7L Engine (13 ft-lbs)

Next reinstall the coil pack with the two mounting bolts, it is only necessary to hand tigthen the two bolts. Then plug back in the electrical connector and continue this process on the next 5 spark plugs.

Changing Dome Light

To remove the map light bulbs you need to first remove the overhead console.

To do this you need to remove the screw at the front of the overhead console (which is more towards the front windshield).

Next you need to pry down on the rear of the overhead console and then disconnect the electrical connectors.

Then, with the overhead console pulled down, pull of the map light bulbholders and replace the bulbs.

Installation is the reverse of the removal process.

2004 dodge intrepid w/a 2.7. Check engine light came on and the engine started shuttering a mile away from home. Limped her home, and figured it was the cam shaft position sensor. (Had same symptoms in...


could be the T.P.S. sensor(throttle position sensor). It would be worth the money to have a free scan done by an auto parts store, as there are too many electrical problems that can happen, I.A.C. , M.A.P. and O2 sensors, also check to see if all the spark plugs are getting spark, if a plug isnt firing, then it will stutter lose power and could cause the gas odor because its not burning the fuel in that cylinder before it is exhausted.

Dodge intrepid/97 caught fire replaced all the wires now the spark plugs are not firing


You left out alot of info. We need more to be able to help you. What caused the fire, etc. Did you already check your fuses ( both under the dash and under the hood)? Is your check engine light temporarily coming on when you turn the key on? Can you hear the fuel pump come on when you turn the key on?

No spark in two cylinders in a 2004 Dodge intrepid. plugs an coils good


a trigger pulse from the engine management system is not making it to the modual, this could be in the wiring harness or the pulse output driver transistor on the engine management controller PC board, a Chilton manual will help in tracing the fault, when you find the appropriate wire that Leeds to the coil sub assembly at the connector of the engine management system probe the wire with a test light to see if pulses are present there if not replace the engine management component

Engine light keeps comeing on mecanic change o2 senser worked for half hour came back on cods keep saying its miss fireing have had this problem for a month know


Start Small work to Big = Saved Money!
The Code(s) should be telling the specific cylinder(s) that are misfiring. Do you know waht the code is?
Target those cylinders 1st before testing the unaffected cylinders.
The following should isolate the problem(s).
1. Spark plugs - take out-reconnect back to wires and test spark plugs for getting sparks. If none: Don't replace them yet. GO TO 2. If the spark plugs are worn, dirty them replace them.
2. Remove spark plugs form end of ignition wires and test for spark from the wire. If none: Don't replace them yet. GO TO 3.
3. Remove the wires from the coil connection and test the coil for spark for each cylinder. If none: Don't replace it yet.
4. Test each spark plug and wires this way.
5. Coil Packs normally provide fire for 2-cylinders at the same time. The two are paired across from one another.
6. Test the coil for fire, amount of fire and if there is both cyclinders firing.
Misfire and the O2 Sensor got replaced??
Good Luck and get back with me if you need additional help or if this solved the problem.

2004 Dodge Intrepid Check Engine Light & Bad Fuel Mileage


If it has never had plugs changed, i would suggest it. It can make a big difference.

Labor time is .8 hrs + 6 plugs = $80 - $150.

Take your car to a parts place and they will usually check and clear your light for free.

Firestone likes to up-sell everything, $650 is way too much for a basic tune up.
