What year and engine is your Dakota?

For the most part, you remove the wires and replace them one at a time not to mess up the firing order..the plugs you just remove with a spark plug socket, check the gap listed in the owners manual or on your emissions sticker on the new plugs, and thread them in tight, but not too tight as you dont want to strip the threads.

I hope this helps. I take it you are completely new to any type of mechanical work?
