Hi abpd7414
Sounds like you have a stripped head, normally this happens when the plug is over tightened or when the spark plug ceases to the head.
You will have to go to your local auto parts store and explain your problem, they have the answer to your problem.
It is called a Helicoil and Tap.
You can find one at this webpage...

What causes air to seep around the spark plugs on a 2002 Chrysler voyager

Loose sparkplug
cross threaded sparkplug
over compressed washer on sparkplug
worn threads in the head

Just put new ones in. Start them by hand and turn using a sparkplug socket and extension bar until tight. Add the ratchet bar or T-Bar and tighten a further one eighth turn.

Does not start. what could be the problem?

Make sure the oil level is right. Check for spark by removing sparkplug and reattach the plug wire on it and ground the nut part of the sparkplug on metal on the engine. Whith the switch switch to on you should see a spark between the gap of the sparkplug when you pull the cord. If not get a new plug and make sure it is gapped to 30 thousands. If you are getting spark put the plug back in and tighten and reconnect the wire. Take the air cleaner off and put a spoon full of gasoline in the carburetor and pull the cord. If it fires for a second the carburetor has to be taken apart and cleaned.

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!

Can someone tell me how can I replace the spark plugs on Dodge Caravan 2005, from above?

Open the hood to access the engine compartment. Locate the sparkplugs sitting to the side of the motor. Six wires run to the motor, three on each side.

Twist the rubber boot and pull away from the sparkplugs. This will expose the sparkplug.

Unbolt the sparkplug with a socket wrench. Use a 5/8-inch deep-well socket attached to the socket wrench.

Pull the sparkplug away from the motor. Discard the sparkplug.

Screw the sparkplug into the motor by hand. Make sure it is hand-tight.

Tighten the sparkplug with the socket wrench, using the deep-well sparkplug socket.

Click the wire to the sparkplug wire to the end of the sparkplug. Gently pull the wire to ensure it clicks into place.

Repeat the procedure for the remaining five sparkplugs. Change each sparkplug one at a time.

2002 crf450, rough running, back firing, hard start

Classic valve train issues. Sounds like the valves are tight. One thing that concerns me is the "sudden onset". Valves usually tighten over time.
Make sure you also tighten the cam chain as well.
