To change the sparks on a 2005 4.7L Dodge Dakota you will need the following:

  • Spark plug socket
  • Ratchet
  • Torque wrench
  • Extension
  • Flat-tip screwdriver
  • Make sure the truck is cold!!!

Note you will have to remove the air intake located at the top of the engine, and will have to move some of the coolant lines out of the way.

At the top of the engine there are 4 sparks on each side. The coils are held in place with a 10mm bolt. Undo the 10mm bolt and unclip the coil. Next pull out the coil.

Insert the socket, with extension into the spark plug hole.

Remove spark plug.

Check the gap on new spark plug, it should match stock.

tighten to approximately 25ft.lbs. (check spark-plug packaging for exact torque requirements).

repeat this process with all other sparks.

be sure that no dirt gets into the spark plug holes.

    Where are the spark plugs located?

    Probably coil-on-plug, which means they are underneath the coils.

    05 dodge dakota,3.7L V-6 Spark plug or pcv?

    sounds like your o2 sensors down at your catalytic convertor, aka your emissions sensors these will do that after thye engine is warm is when the catalytic convertor starts plugging up because of these sensors, its an emission thing that has been installed to control emissions of exhaust ya know fed things, anyway I have a dodge I love them, also no spark plugs they have things called coils, each one is very pricy about 50 bucks a piece, u usually need to change them all not just one I would take it to a muffler shop to have the o2 sensors at the cat replaced even if you have to take them out, unless emissions is required in your state, hope this helps.
