If you're talking about a 6 cylinder, then it's fairly straightforward. The driver side has normal-looking plug wires, the passenger side has the ignition coils covering the plugs. In either case, remove and label the wires from the plug side, unscrew and remove the ignition coils from the other side. Using a spark plug socket (this is important, the rubber ring in the socket will hold on to the plug, which is deep inside the head) unscrew the plug, make sure the new plugs are gapped and replace them. It is wise to use some rubber hose to start the new plugs so you don't cross thread. Then replace the plugs and ignition coils. It's probably worth replacing the plug wires at the same time. Okay sounds easy enough but how do you unscrew the coils? With a screw drive It looks to have some sort of latching system on top. I do want to break the thing? Is there a specific technique or tool?

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.

Change the plugs and wires at 100,000 miles unless you experience poor performance or a drop in MPG. In that case change them sooner.

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.

Some one got lazy and did not change them all. Or chose not too do the hard ones.

Change the plugs at 100,000 miles or earlier if the engine is not performing as it should.

See here. http://www.4x4wire.com/toyota/maintenance/tacoma_4runner_30k/maintenancep3.html#plugs use gas line to get the plugs out - they are hard to reach and this will prevent you from stripping the threads when putting the new ones in.

Look in the required maintenance booklet that came with the vehicle. Probably 90 or 100 thousand miles.
