SOURCE: how difficult is it to change the spark plugs? are they pre-gapped?

on a scale of 1-10 this is a 5, you must ALWAYS VERIFY PLUG GAP, yes most times they are gaped but now and then the box gets dropped and opp's zero gap.

How do i change or where can find where i can change my spark plug wires


without seeing it, it's difficult to tell you procedure but... if you stop by a good parts store like Autozone, Advance, etc... tell them you want to change your plug wires they'll be able to show you the wire set, location and how to do it.

Changing rear spark plugs on an 05 Bonnevile V6


No special tools, however the hard part will be getting the plug wires off without pulling the inner contact apart. Rotate the boots on the plugs before trying to remove the wires.

1997 dodge caravan spark plug change procedure


With the engine cold, I think you take your 5/8 spark plug wrench, proper extensions, wobble joint (where needed) & 3/8 or 1/2 ratchet & remove 1 plug wire & plug at a time (In case you don't know the firing order or have the book, or don't have numbers on the plug wires at the ign module). The plugs in the front are easy to change, the back ones are a lot more difficult. I an assuming you have something like a 3.3 engine. (I have 3) While you are at it, check your small emissions hoses & vac hoses & belts. Rick

Spark plug wires


Because of the air plenum that site on top of the engine (6 cylinder) changing the spark plug wires and spark plugs is very difficult on these models. Sadly, the easiest way is to remove the air plenum on top and even the winshield wiper cowling section due to the location of the wires and plugs. If you aren't a mechanic, or have the tools, you may want to forego this task. I believe the wires and spark plugs should be changed about once every 70-80,000 miles on these models.

I took my van in for a basic turnup and oil change that was $264.


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.

Spark Plugs


It is very difficult to change it is all done by feel as you cannot see it. You need to pull the wire off and "remember" the path it took to come out as this is the way you will have to remove and install the plug and put back the wire. Also, be very mindfull while installing the plug because it can be stripped out fairly easy if your not carefull. Good luck.
