Hello,

To remove change the spark plugs you will need to remove the upper intake manifold. Here is a guide so you can see what you are in for and some diagrams for your car (BELOW)

Hi jrclark,

Thank you for the donation.

As with all V6 egines, the intake manifold is always in the way of the 3 spark plugs.

It can be done without removing the manifold but you might have difficulty removing the coil packs as space is limited.
