No, you should not have to. It will be difficult to do the rear one on the passenger side. I suggest using a 1/4 in drive ratchet. I had to do this on my Plymouth Grand Voyager SE. The front ones are very easy, and the middle one and the one on the driver side in the back were fairly easy. I suggest doing the back one on the passenger side first to get it out of the way. It comes out easier than it goes in. Just remember, when putting the new one in, put it in by hand first, hand tighten as much as possible. Have your ratchet ready (maybe have someone hold it for you so you're not looking for it as you'll want to keep your hand on the plug until you're ready for the ratchet so it'll be easier to locate by feel. There is no visual play here, so this is how it will need to be done. This will also take a bit of patience as well.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

More then likely you have a 3.8L engine, to get to the rear spark plug's, you need to get to them from under the van.

I have a 1999 Chevy Venture van. How do I get to the back/bottom 3 spark plugs to change them? I have alread changed the front/top 3 plugs?


Pull out the 2 long bolts that hold your motor mounts together, and then carefully jack the rear of your motor up from the bottom by the oil pan. You should now have enough room to wiggle your ratchet back there.

Change the spark plugs


To change the spark plugs is not fun. It had took me about 6 hr. First change the front plugs easy. Second undo your two front motor mount bolts and rock the van forward to tilt the motor forward as much as you can but dont over do it. Second take all of your coil packs off so you can get to the back three. No doubt is is a pain and every thing is done blinded just by feel. You can do it. It is no walk in the park though. I will never change myne again I will sell it before I ever do that again. Have fun.

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.
