This guy does not know what he is talking about 100% on this vehicle and left out a ton of information. You will also need to remove the intake manifold to gain access to the rear plugs, so you will need to get an intake a.K.A. Upper plennum gasket. Never remove the spark plugs hot, you have aluminum heads with steel spark plugs. Always use antisieze on the threads of the plugs when reinstalling, I like the copper antisieze. Buy NGK plugs and go quality, they do not make a different lenght plug for exact application. It will take a few hours to do the project due to the intake manifold. Don't worry, there is no more leaded gas so that is irrelavant.

You should say that to the manufacturer who published the repair information above.

The manufacturer who published this information is not the one who posted it on this website. Your are classified an expert by the amount of responses you have. If that is true then you have a knowledge of auto repair and therefore should have added more to the comments then posting an exerpt from a repair manual that obviously is either wrong or you did not post all pages associated with this. Don't ever be affraid to add more than what is printed, sometimes experience is far greater than what is printed.

It we were to add in everything in complete details all the time, being there to do the job would be easier.
