you can do it. the front ones are pretty obvious. the rear ones jsut climb up on top of the engine and go for it. well for me it was easier to do it that way. You can see a little bit better when you are on top and can ollk down on everything instead of from the side.

You will need a swivel spark plug socket, 6 in extension and then a couple of 3 in extensions. Youdont need 12 inches of extensions to do all of them. One you may need the 6in and one 3 in and then the next one may be easier with all three of them.

Granted I have done it several times when working for the dealer but I jsut did mine about a month ago and had it done in 30-40 minutes.

Spark Plugs

So climb on top and attack it.. I shall do that

So do you work for a dealer? Have you ever heard the V6 stalling when you do a hard brake above 15mph. The rpms drop and the car idles hard.

Thank You,

you WILL have to remove the intake plenum to get acces to the rear plugs. It will usually take two days to complete. all you need is some tools, torque rench, and time and pacience. If you take it to the dealer they will charge you alot for that service.

You don't have to.

There are ways around it like Cyorke suggested.

Just did my neighbors 96 1M. 30 min tops.
