First, get a manual from Autozone. Changing the spark plugs on the 4 cylinder is not difficult, but the V6 is a difficult proposition. The V6 is a several hour project You might consider replacing the vacuum hoses along the way.

First you have to get the right tools. My old 5/8" socket doesn't fit so you have to get the one that does. You cannot measure it when its in the engine so I suggest you go to the parts store and get the right plug for the 97 Camry which I just looked up on the internet to be NGK part number NG7092. The gap should be pre set to .044 but it wouldn't hurt to buy the spacer tool for .044 when you buy the socket and ratchet. Also keep in mind that the spark plug socket is recessed into the head so you need an extension bar for the socket and ratchet.

If you are going to change the plugs, I would highly recommend changing the wires as well ($41 at Autozone). Since most people don't change their plugs very often, I would always change the wires.

Follow the manual. Photograph complex areas in case you forget how they go back together.
