Best Answer

Short and long extension, one 90 degree elbow, 3/8 ratchet and be prepared to bloody a couple of knuckles. On the bright side, plugs should only need changing every 100K miles.

If your car has the 2 dogbones on the front of the engine all you have to do is loosen the nut where they swivel on each one and you then pull the engine forward to get to the back plugs.

If it's a V-6, the front plugs are easy to replace but you'll need a universal joint to get at the back plugs. You practically have to climb on top of the engine to get at it. It can be done but it's a royal pain. You have to use sense of touch-only.
