What is the right sparkplug gap for a 91 Dodge Caravan 1600cc engine?


Plug gaps can vary slightly depending on brand so it is best to look at your application in the spark plug maker's online catalogue where you will also find the recommended gap.

2004 Dodge Stratus 2.4 DOHC. Turns over, won't start. Was misfiring and barely running. Code showed P0300, P2302, P2305, P0700. Found Coil Pack had a burned spot near the #2 wire and large crack between #2...


Hey Brian, please don't loose your calm! You CAN fix it!.

Look for a timing belt with a skipped tooth.
Another possibility is that your sparkplugs are not properly gapped or their internal resistor got damaged. (A too large gap will make spark too hard to jump, which ended burning the hole you saw. A too large gap is very difficult to jump and places a tremendous effort on the coil and plug cables. Some times resistor type sparkplugs get the resistor damaged or open, at first, the open circuit can be jumped (inside the damaged plug body) easily, but as gap grows, it will cause an excessive voltaje to damage the coil or wires.


An engine starter that drains too much current means that it is damaged and possibly its bearings are too worn, which places a lot of friction on them, and the por electric motor then has to draw a lot of amperes to turn, draining the battery. Bad starter cable or ground connection causes a high voltaje drop to the starter motor, lowering the cranking speed, difficulting engine starting too.

Finally, a NO SPARK with no voltaje at coil primary means the DIS module that supplies current to the coil went bad, possibly because the too high voltaje leaked from the sparkplug end of the coil into the DIS module, damaging its internal semiconductors.

So, you need to FIX the sparkplugs, then cables, then check the coil, connectors, and, when everything on the High Voltaje side is perfectly OK and cannot damage any newly installed replacement parts, then you can go and check/replace the DIS module. Hopefully, the leaked high voltaje didn't damage the computer or Engine control module, as it is expensive. Best luck, Amclaussen.

How to change spark plugs


Those are as easy as they come these days. Mark each spark plug wire with a piece of tape with the cylinder # written on it, so as not to mix up the wires. Remove each spark plug wire by firmly grasping the wire by the boot (do not pull on the wire) and twist it back and forth a few times while pulling slowly. It should pop off without a great deal of effort. If it is seized and it breaks, you will have to replace the wire, or at the very least replace the terminals (if you can get some). Use an air hose and blow around the base of each spark plug to dislodge any loose dirt that could fall into the cylinders (not absolutely necessary, but a good idea). Remove each spark plug with a spark plug socket and extension and ratchet (I forget which size socket, it's either 5/8 or 13/16). Check the gaps of each new spark plug (typically around 0.035 in). re-install each new spark plug by hand (do not cross-thread them) and once you have ensured that the plug is threaded in properly, tighten the plug until it seats, and then tighten an additional 1/16 of a turn. Repeat this for the remaining plugs. Re-install wires to the corresponding spark plugs. You're done!

EVAP Canister, Should it be loose? 2004 Silverado 4WD


The canister has vibration dampeners, if they are in place it should be fine. If there was rubber that was between the canister and the strap and it is gone then you need to replace it. If not then over time the strap will wear a hole into the canister. Hopefully that helps.
