Yup, 16 of them. I've changed the plugs on two of these cars now. It just takes a little time. Make sure you get some dielectric grease too for the plug boots, as well as some antisieze for the plug threads. You're also going to need a 10mm socket to remove each one of the coil packs. once the coil packs are unbolted, you will have to pull them straight out- this might take a bit of force depending on how long its been since they were off. After the coil pack is out, you will have access to the plugs. They are located about 8" into the motor, so you'll need at least one socket extension to get to them. Hardest plugs are the ones located near the firewall, just not much room to work. Just take your time and you'll be fine!

Oh, gap I believe is a .045, and torque is 13 ft/lb (this is if I remember right!)

Ahh hell, a V6! Then you'll be done in a third of the time, and PLEASE, make sure you only buy 6 plugs, not the 16 mentioned in my previous post!

I know what you mean...everytime I get a new vehicle I neglect the other. I will start a new thread with a couple of pics but it is not a Dodge.
