this is how i removed them i used a plug socket and two 3" extensions i put one extension into the socket placed this over the plug with the other extension on a 3/8 drive ratchet i then was able to place one ext. into the other that was on the plug removing the plug all was done from the top iam 6 ft and at 220 # so my arms are not small altho are fairly long this is for passenger side that sets under alternator to start the plug back into the hole i use a piece of rubber hose about 4" long i stick this over the plug am able to start plug back into hole without droping them the rest are fairly easy

The rear bank of sparks are hard to reach unless you have tiny arms. If you don't then you must remove the plentum. Also, you will need new plentum gaskets when re-installing.


This is how I removed mine: (1) Remove the windshield wiper arms and the cowl cover (black plastic below windshield) Remove the windshield wiper motor and linkage from the firewall. There are many individual steps to this but all are easy. (2) The driver side sparkplug should be removable using a socket with an elbow. This was easy. (3) I loosened the alternator and then could removed the passenger side sparkplug using an a socket with an elbow. This was not easy. (4) I removed the middle sparkplug by using a socket with an elbow, an extension, and another elbow on the socket wrench. This was difficult. (5) I ended up replacing the (middle) sparkplug(s) from the bottom after jacking the van up and putting it on jackstands. If I were to do it again, I would remove the cowl cover (this allows enough room to get on the sparkplugs with a socket) and remove the sparkplugs from the bottom. This would probably save a lot of scratches and time. The plenum does not have to be removed if the cowl cover and windshield wiper motor are removed.

The sparkplus socket with elbow was purchased at Sears. Overall, it took me about 4 hours trying to do most of the work from the top. Most of this time was spent trying to figure out how to make things work when you can't see what you're doing and when there's not much room to work. I felt really stupid when I noticed that all three sparkplugs are visible from the bottom once the cowl is off and there's enough room to work provided you have the elbow socket and extensions. The Chilton's manual wil tell you how to remove the cowl and windshield wiper motor.

Good luck and be happy the sparkplugs only need to be replaced every 100,000 miles.

I heard that removing the air filter will allow you easy access to the back spark plugs.. Will see when I try it this week on my 93 3.0L v6

this one is rigth you will need two short extention for the far left spark plug the others are easy to get too. that is next to the alternater ther are to screws hold on the air filter housing.
