Comments Off on Chrysler Town & Country: How to Replace a Spark Plug
Generally, most spark plugs we made to last 60,000-100,000 miles. The spark plugs in the Chrysler Town & Country should be inspected and cleaned every 30,000 miles, according to Chrysler. By replacing the spark plugs as suggested, gas mileage can be improved as well as strain on the engine. Follow these easy steps to replace the spark plugs in a Chrysler Town & Country:
First, you should disconnect the negative battery cable.
Let the battery cool. Do not try to replace the spark plug in a hot engine, as it can damage the cylinder head.
Find the spark plug wires. They will be located across the front and back of the engine.
Release the lock on the spark plug by first grabbing the spark plug wire by its boot. Turn it one-half turn clockwise, and then one-half turn counterclockwise. Pull the wire off the spark plug. Lay the wire aside.
