I just finished changing my plugs. Although it was a little tedious it is not that hard to do. You will need a #10 metric socket and a spark plug socket with a rubber boot inside to help bring the plug out. There are a couple of brackets that require the #10 socket to remove on the drivers side in order to get at the plugs on that side. You will also need a long extension for you socket. On the passenger side you will need to loosen the air intake hose from the air filter to the top of the motor and you will need to remove a couple of vacuum hoses. After that is out of the way you can get at the plugs on that side. The plugs on that side are under the little black boxes that are sitting where the plug wires are attached. You won't need to remove the plug wires but you will need to remove the black boxes. First remove the small electrical connector on the top of the box by squeezing and pulling up. You can then remove the box with the #10 socket and pull the spark plug connector staight out. After changing the plugs just reverse the process to replace everything you have removed. It took me about one hour. Good luck.

You can change the spark plugs on the 1997 Toyota Tacoma yourself. Remove the ground wire and spark plug wire. Remove plug. Replace the plug with a plug made specially for your model car.

When changing the spark plugs on a 2006 Toyota Tacoma make sure the vehicle is off. Use a spark plug socket and pull the spark plug wires. Remove the old spark plugs and properly space and install the new parts.

Sorry, but you are badly mistaken. There are six spark plugs on the V6 Toyota Tacoma.
