What is the proper type of spark plugs to use on 2002 Dodge Dakota? I've heard that copper wires are the ones to use!

I just had the plugs replaced and they used platinum plugs and truck is running terrible!

First of all i would need to know what motor you have in your truck, for instance i have a 2002 Dodge Dakota with a 3.9L v6 or a 4.7L v8. At that point we may be able to help you. You could also Google 2002 Dodge Dakota with a 3.9L v6 OEM spark plugs as a for instance to get the answer to your question.

How do we get to the spark plugs on my 2006 Dodge Dakota and where do the plugs go


Trace the multiple wires (one per cylinder) from the distributor to each spark plug. You'll need a spark-plug wrench to remove the current spark plugs.
Check your Owners Manual for the recommended time to replace the spark plugs, and the recommended part-number for replacement parts. Or, go to Canadian Tire, with the year & model number of your truck, and the sales assistant will recommend the correct plugs.'

2002 Dodge Dakota flasher


The flasher is on the top of the steering colunm right behind the steering wheel, remove the screws (4 I think) from the bottom of the steering column cover, remove the bottom piece then the top, you have to fiddle with it a bit to get it around the ignition switch, the flasher is on top (7 pin? connector) get the Mopar one, I've heard if problems with aftermarket pieces

My 4.7L dakota has a cylinder not firing. Compression checked out ok. Can you suggest a possible cause?


This can only be a bad spark plug wire, a bad spark plug or a bad distributor....start with the wire....switch one of the wires out and see if the problem moves with the wire. do the same with the spark plug and if this does not solve the problem, you issue is with the distributor. Good luck

I would replace the spark plugs and more importantly the spark plug wires. It may be a bad plug wire with a break in it somewhere. It be so small that it only grounds the wire out when it gets warm due to expansion of the insulation around the wire.

It sounds like timing issues or the spark plug sequence is incorrect. To check the timing, remove the number one spark plug. Place a long screwdriver into the spark plug hole. Rotate the engine by using a ratchet and socket on the crankshaft pully nut (clockwise) and watch the screwdriver. When the timing marks in the crankshaft pully are aligned with "O" or "TDC" (top dead center) the screwdriver should be all the way out of the hole, just inside about 1 or 2 inches. If you rotate the crankshaft just a bit the screwdriver will start to go down, back the pully up to the 0 or TDC mark and the screwdriver will go back up. The is the properly timed engine.
Sometimes the engine will skip a couple of teeth due to a worn timing belt. Replace the timing belt and re-time the engine. Good luck, Jim

2002 Dodge Stratus R/T Spark Plugs


Tom,
The spark plugs for that vehicle is Champions. Not anything fancy, just a resistor copper core plugs. DO NOT INSTALL DOUBLE OR SINGLE PLATINUM PLUGS. No bosch, no splitfire, nothing but the champion plug.

ANy other plug and you will start have random misfire codes and other "weird little problems".

I have been a shop owner for years and I tell you this because i have fixed weild little problems just by installing the correct plug. ]
You should change the plugs every 30K miles as well. Look in your owners manual and it should tell you your service schedule
Good luck
