List the Make, and year vehicle you are talking about and I can walk you through it. Until you provide that information, a few pointers. The spark plugs are screwed into the head. You will see 4 wires going to the plugs. Twist and pull the wires off by the boot at the plug and do not pull on the wire itself. After this, remove the old plugs by turning counterclockwise. Do them one at a time as to not get the wires mixed up. Use an air compressor or canned air to blow out the plug hole to remove any debris. Gap the plug to the factory specs found in your owner's manual or ask the auto parts store where you purchase the plugs what the gap is. Most plugs are pre-gapped but still need to be checked. Apply a very small amount of Anti-Seize compound to the plug threads. Install the plug and tighten to around 20 lb/ft of torque. Do not over-tighten. Push the plug wire back on until you feel it snap. Move to the next plug and repeat. Very easy repair on a 4 cylinder. You can do this!!
