Spark plug replacement

I need to change out the spark plugs for a 2004 Dodge neon. The main problem is getting the rubber boot and wire off the plug in order to access it for replacement. It seems to be attached tightly to the plugs. How can I remove it without damaging the spark plugs?

Just pull hard, it does seem pretty tough, but you won't damage anything as long as its a hard consistent pull. Don't TUG, but pull increasing the pressure until it comes out. It needs to be a snug fit in there to keep debris/moisture etc from getting to your spark plug!

Got 2004 dodge stratus misfiring code says p2305 already changed coil and spark plugs and wires still misfiring


Who is doing the parts replacing?

Have you looked at Scan Tool Data & road tested?

Have you actually done any testing, to find a problem
& used the codes to component test

Till you answer that, I will say you need a repair shop

Lots of things cause misfires

Changing spark plugs & a coil or two ,based on a code,
is not doing the required testing to find a problem or the
need for parts just yet

2000 dodge neon misses all the time no power or acceleration


The spark plug wires might be bad, Are the coil packs a wires together in one? With the engine off, loosen each plug wire so as to when you start it you can not have to battle with it First do this with dry floor, rubber sole shoos and a pare of rubber or vinyl gloves. As its running pull 1 plug wire off at a time. When you get to a plug that doesn't change the sound of the motor you've found your miss. Did the CK engine light come on?

Darien, just because it's getting good spark at the spark plug wires doesn't mean that the spark plugs are firing. Now let's get your girlfriend happy again, Remove those spark plugs, check the center electrode and see if they are worn down, if they are worn down, change all 4, Good luck, Gary

I am having issues with my 2004 dodge neon missing at idle spped and low rpm. Is there a simple solution to look for. No check engine lights are coming on so I am unable to check any codes.


Be careful, when its running, slowly pull each spark plug wire up, if you see sparking coming out of the side of the spark plug boot, replace the wires and spark plugs. Use the correct Champion Spark Plugs.

My 2002 dodge neon has check engine light with coded p0302. I know to try replacing the plug/wires, are there any other common causes for this error code that I should check out?


Hi! When replacing the plugs and wires on this model be sure there is no oil in spark plug wells. You will notice the oil on the plug wire boot when removing it. If there is any oil on any of the boots the valve cover gasket and spark plug tube seals will need to be replaced or the misfire code you mentioned will return. Hope this information helps!

Changing spark plugs 2004 dodge intrepid


First off, on this model you don't have plug wires, you have coil packs with a boot and coil connected to the pack. The boot slides on the tops of the spark plug. The good thing about this is that you don't have to mark each wire to its location.

So to replace the plugs you need to disconnect the electrical connector to the coil pack and then unbolt the two bolts that mount the pack down, then remove the pack.

Next with a ratchet, an extension and a special spark plug socket, which has an insulator inside to protect the porcelain from getting cracked, remove the spark plugs.

Next step is to replace the plug, usually I slide off the boot from the coil pack and then remove the coil from inside the boot and slide the boot over the spark plug and start to thread the plug back in. Using this method allows to you feel if you are threading the plug in right. Then with a torque wrench you would torque the spark plug to the specs for the type of engine you have.

3.2/3.5L Engine (20 ft-lbs)
2.7L Engine (13 ft-lbs)

Next reinstall the coil pack with the two mounting bolts, it is only necessary to hand tigthen the two bolts. Then plug back in the electrical connector and continue this process on the next 5 spark plugs.

I have a 1998 dodge neon that is turning over but will not start,i think it is the fuel pump but i am not sure,how can i tell for sure? parbutina83@verizon.net


Pull one of the spark plug boots from a spark plug, leaving the other end of the plug wire connected to the coil pack. Having someone else start the car, hold the boot end of the plug wire towards any metal piece near it and look for a blue spark jumping from it. Do you see this?

Where do I find the spark plugs on my 1995 Neon?


Take your time, and follow your ignition wires from the coil pack to the engine. The ignition wires will most likely be either gray or black. You are looking for 4 thick wires that lead into a valve cover, and under square black rubber "boots" located in a row next to each other. Once yo pull up the boot, the spark plug will be directly below the boots. Check this picture to see whjat I am referencing
http://www.allpar.com/images/neon-1995/engine.jpg
you will see the 4 square boot toward the top left of the picture closest to the windshield.
