if its anything like the 98 1.6 remove the spark plug wires using a deep well socket (don't remember the size sorry) short extension and ratchet and turn counter clockwise and you can get a long tool under $10 were you push on the button on one end and fingers come out the other end great for reaching in tight places to get small parts and use this to get the plugs out then gap new plugs (use NGK type) and install and replace plug this time should check the dist cap & rotor if bad go to an O'reilly's parts store and get the cap & rotor as when I purchased mine they told me its lifetime warranty so every 25000 miles take the cap & rotor in and get a new one......
