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.

To change spark plugs on a 1994 Toyota Camry, remove the black shafts. The spark plugs are down the four holes. Use a socket set with extension to reach the spark plugs. Replace old spark plugs with new ones.

Disconnect the battery, remove the spark plug cables and boots, and remove the old spark plugs. Next, put in the new spark plugs, replace the cables and boots, and reconnect the battery.

You have to remove the coil that sits on top of the spark plug, coils are the six square objects that have spark plug wires running to them.

A 1996 Toyota Camry that will have spark and then sometimes no spark might be having a problem with the spark plugs. Each individual spark plug is now a solid state electrode in that year of Toyota Camry. The ignition coil pack on top of the spark plug is probably loose or cracked.

generally on a Toyota 3.0 either in a Camry or an Avalon you need to remove the upper intake- also known as the plenium- to gain access to the back spark plugs. You will need to make sure that you have a new gasket for the plenium to avoid any vac. leaks

I suspect you have V6. If it is the case, you will have to remove intake manifold. There is no other way to replace it.

The torque for spark plugs is 18 N*m or 13 ft*lbf.

In the engine ... usually on both sides or inline on the top.

Like any car it depends on how many cylinders the car has. If it is a 4 cylinder then it has 4 spark plugs. If it's a 6 cylinder it has 6 spark plugs. An 8 cylinder truck has 8 spark plugs
