The 2001 Dodge Caravan with the 3.3L has absolutly no clearance above the intake - I have replaced these by removing the intake and throttle body - be sure and place a cover, rag or something to prevent anything from falling into the engine. Rear plugs can then be accessed fairly easy. While intake is off, clean it by introducing a can of foaming engine cleaner - make sure all sensers have been removed before hand. Clean throttle body and idle solenoid with carburator cleaner. Idle solenoid can be removed for better axcess but do not remove TPS throttle position sensor - this is in direct line with the throttle plates. Wash out all carbon and gas deposits. Take your time with the gaskets and you will be greatly rewarded with improved gas mileage and idle control. When replacing the plugs, put antiseze on threads to make them easier to install and remove next time.

How do I get the spark plugs out of my 1998 ford escort to replace with new ones? Also where does the pcp Valve go?


With you hood open and you are standing in front of the car sparkplug wires need to be removed,i suggest you remove them one at a time, under each wire the sparkplug is threaded into the cylinder head,using a 5/8 sparkplug socket remove the sparkplug and replace it with new properly gapped sparkplug.Note:if you remove all sparkplug wires at once the factory wires are generally numbered 1 2 3 4 the sparkplug closesed to the passenger fender is #1 and the one clossesed to the driver's fender is #4.Standing in front of vehicle the PCV Valve is located between #3 and #4 on the backside(intake side) of the engine fitted down into a rubber hose

I HAD #3 SPARK PLUG BLOW OUT OF CYLINDER. HAD IT REPAIRED AND ALL NEW PLUGS, FUEL FILTERAND PCV PUT IN NOW TRUCK HAS A VERY FAINT ROUGH IDLE. ANY IDEAS


#3 sparkplug is not firing at peak performance.
The engine block sparkplug hole had to be re-threaded in order to accept an adapter for the replacement spark plug. The sparkplug is sitting "higher" in the cylinder than the others (not as efficient).
It may even be a different sparkplug altogether in order to accommodate the adapter.

Add a silicone insulator gel (AutoZone $2) inside both boot ends of the sparkplug wires and re-seat them all.

Sparkplugs


For the V6 follow the wires (3) to the cylinders located between the radiator and engine block for the 3 in the front. For the other 3, side (toward the fire wall, on the opposite side of the radidiator) these are much more difficult to get to and change. You must remove parts from the engine above the back section of the engine (the spark plug module and brackets) and also need extensions and universal joints for your deep socket. Not an easy change, you have to ly on top of the engine to get back there!
