First, do not pull the spark plug from the wire itself as you'll distroy it! do it from the boot or even better get yourself a spark plug wire puller ( yes, it exists in auto parts stores). If done with no puller, grasp the boot and twist it gently side by side until it begins to turn, next pull it gently straight away from the spark plug, this will do the trick. Next, you'll need a 5/8" socket to remove spark plugs,as well as some 3/8" extenders (flexible and straight ones).You may need to work from inside the tire well to remove the plugs on the left side.The ones on the right engine side are ok to work from the hood. As with most screws in most engines, they are removed by turning counterclockwise( believe me, this is not too much information for some who asks this question).Check/replace, gap accordingly plugs and reinstall with antisieze compound(buy it from auto store, you will need it when replacing oxygen sensor,too) so you won't damage the thread when reinstalling. Attach the wires to the proper cylinder,or even better, do one at a time to prevent wrong connections.Check for proper engine performance. Good luck!!
