SOURCE: How do I change the rear 3 spark plugs on a '94 Grand Caravan?

Yes, these are tough to get at from the top. Put the front on jack stands or ramps, and you can reach them a little easier from the bottom. You just need to reach up where the exhaust pipe comes down, and you can even see what you're doing this way.

SOURCE: how do i change the rear spark plugs in a dodge

There are tow ways to get to the plugs, You can get to them from the top or from the bottom. There's quite a bit a bit of room in the transmission tunnel, and you can reach up and actually touch the plugs. There is trouble with the "alternator plug" (#1) , Hard to reach it from below, and you may ended up removing the alternator bracket and shoving the alternator back. 
From the top end,  removed the windshield wipers/cowl assembly, the intake plenum, remove the bracket from the alternator, easy, and the hardest part is just removing the bracket holding a wire harness from the back of the plenum, the bolts are a little hard to get to due to the a/c lines, but after they were out the plenum removed with ease and I replaced the back plugs(with champion double platinum RN14PMP5 OEM's) and replace the spark plug wires with BWD Selects. They are very good wires. Used anti-seize of course. Mounted the wire harness bracket back, put the plenum(with new gasket), vacuum lines, sensors, and alt.bracket back on then changed out the front ones. Replaced Wipers and your good to go. 

Note: if from the bottom  rotate the alternator to get the pass side and from below to get the middle and drivers side. You can use a jack stands and a creeper. Takes about an hour. Yes it's a PITA but, going from below greatly reduces the chance of spinning a bolt head off or breaking something else in the process of getting to the plugs. No special tools needed.   Good luck and if your lazy like i am just change the front ones and have a local shop replace the rear, they have the lift and will only cost an hour shop rate in your area. $65.00/hour average

What is a firing order


This is a quick explanation:

1996 Dodge Caravan
3.3 liter


c17hydro_162.gif

The big rectangles are referencing the engine, the cylinder associated to it's "firing" are the colored circles, and the are also the location of the spark plugs....the smaller lego-looking block is your coil pack. The spark plug wires run from the coil pack to the spark plug on the engine. The wires match 1 to1 or black to black...and so on....

When these are matched to each cylinder/spark plug and it's wire leading to the matching coil pack position, this is it's "firing order". If one of the wires is "crossed" meaning, not 1 going to 1, then the engine will "miss-fire".

96 dodge caravan 3.0 has p300 and p306 codes,


A P0306 code means that the the ECM has detected that one of the engine's cylinders is not firing properly. In this case it's cylinder #6.

A code P0306 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

Faulty spark plug or wire, Faulty coil (pack), Faulty fuel injector, Burned exhaust Valve, Poor compression, and Defective computer. 

Check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the Caravan, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). The number six cylinder is the one towards the radiator and drivers side. If you are going to change all the plugs and wire keep me posted, be glad to help. Good luck and hope this helps, P0300 just means multi miss fire.

Exact spark plug wire placement


Turn the crankshaft till the timing mark is at 0...Check where the rotor points...if towards the back of the engine, turn one more time till it points to front. It is now at #1 on cap. Plugs are 1357 on left bank, 2468 on right. order is 18436572 in that order around cap in the direction the rotor turns when cranking.
