How costly is it to repair a stripped out spark plug hole on a 2001 Chrysler tc ltd minivan with the 3.8 ltr v6. the stripped hole is on the back side of engine. is there a specialty tool for this job?

It isn't a bad job if you're handy with tools. They sell kits at most stores there are Helicoils and then solid inserts, all you do is tap the hole, out in the insert and then the spark plug. A tip to doing this, make sure the tap you get has vertical ridges for grease so the pieces are not falling in. Use a shop vac and vaccum out the debri from it as well. Another insert to consider is the TIME-SERT this is a solid thread bushing insert.

Many auto parts stores sell a helicoil thread insert kit that will replace the damaged or missing threads. The kit should include an installation tool that will reach down into where the spark plug was removed. The kit will have instructions on enlarging the stripped hole and creating new threads for the helicoil or steel insert. A new spark plug should thread directly into the new thread insert.

Will jb weld repair stripped bolt in Chevy venture belt tensioner?

When the belt tensioner fails, you have to stop almost immediately or the engine will overheat and suffer serious damage or destruction. I am assuming that the bolt itself is not stripped; the receiving mounting hole in the engine is stripped. And I am pretty sure that the mounting area is aluminum. Therefore, it should be fairly easy to tap the hole for an over-sized bolt. Select a tap that is just larger than the stripped bolt. I would not recommend the JB weld since if it fails, you are stuck without warning. Best of luck!

How do you repair How do you repair stripped threads?

In an item into which a bolt goes, the item can be repaired by using a helicoil insert, once the damaged thread has been prepared to a larger size using a helicoil tap. The insert has a matching larger outer diameter, and has an inner diameter to match the original thread size. Also an inserting tool is needed, so best to purchase a kit with all parts in. One company that makes the helicoil items is called Re-Coil.
