They're under the valve cover on top of the motor. You will have to dig to get to them.

They're straight down, under the black cap and between the two cam halves, like on any other DOCH engine. You have to remove the throttle body intake hose from the air box, disconnect the throttle linkage, remove the black cover, then remove the coil packs. You'll also need at least a 6" extension on your spark plug socket. Make sure it has the rubber ring to grasp the spark plug.

This isn't a hard job once you remove the top intake tube leading into the throttle body. You can reuse the throttle body gasket. It's metal, so don't throw it away or worry about buying a new one.

Easy fix, remove the spark plugs dry everything off. Then go to autozone and get a new valve cover gasket and replace it. This will solve the problem. By the way replace the 4 spark plugs at this time save you having to do it at some other time.
