Why change the spark plug?
Besides the fact that you may be paying more money at the pump, it is important to change the spark plugs at the recommended interval (100,000 miles) to avoid engine misfires and other engine problems.
If you ignore changing your failed spark plugs in your Chrysler Town and Country, your engine will start to shake if it runs on only five cylinders. This will trigger the check engine light. Get your van checked by a mechanic, or replace the spark plugs as soon as possible. When this happens, one or more fault codes may be stored in the engine control module. You can retrieve these codes yourself by following this guide on how to diagnose the check engine light.
If you need to reset the check engine light on your dashboard, you will need the YOUCANIC Full System Scanner to clear the fault code after replacing the spark plugs of your Chrysler 3.6L V6.
