Hi b173airborne,

Thank you for the donation.

Vehicles nowdays are made with minimal tuning requirements except for the spark plugs, oil and filter changes. Most things are controlled by the PCM and requires no adjustment or unadjustable.

However for your model, replacement of the spark plugs requires the intake manifold to be removed to gain access to 3 of the plugs.

Attached is a diagram for the removal of the ignition components, do only the necessary and follow the numered sequence.

Could I get the actual file for the removal of the ignition system? When I copy and paste and enlarge it is very blurry. I am trying to see how difficult is would be to do my own tune up.

Sorry this site does not provide a good graphics support.

I would be away for the next 2 days and will try to get the files for you once I am back.
