How to change the ignition coil on Dodge Intrepid 1993-1997

Do it yourself, remove and replace the ignition coil on your Dodge Intrepid, the model equipped with the 3.5L V6 engine, produced between the years 1993 and 1997. You will need a flat blade screwdriver, a 10 mm socket with a ratchet and probably more than a half an hour.

     First, after you open and secure the hood, disconnect the negative cable of your battery using a 10 mm wrench or socket. Then go to the intake hose seen in the image below and loosen the two clamps that seal it at its edges. You can do that using a flat blade screwdriver.

     After you loosen the clamps, you will be able to pull out the intake, giving you access to the coil. Above it, you will have to unplug the harness seen below and then work on the plug wires. There are six and you must install them on the new coil in the same order as you found them on the old one. Mark these wires somehow or move them to the new coil, one by one, for the moment.

     In order to remove the coil completely, you will have to undo the four bolts that secure it on the engine. You can do that with a 10 mm socket wrench, with a ratchet and probably a small extension. They can be tricky because there is limited space to maneuver the wrench.

     After you get rid of the bolts, you can replace the coil, secure it back with the four retainers, reinstall the plug wires and the harness above and in the end, place back the intake hose. These should be the steps to follow, if you wish to remove or replace the ignition coil on your Dodge Intrepid, the car manufactured between the years 1993 and 1997.
