Gotta reach up from behind the engine, underneath. Can be hard to do if it isn't on a hoist.

The passenger side plug looks like it will be impossible to reach because of the alternator bracket in the way, but a 3" long extension on a 3/8" drive ratchet works nicely. The hardest part is actually tugging the spark plug wire off.

Which V6? With the 3.3 you will need to remove the upper plenum so a gasket is in need if its a 3.8 its best to do on a lift and reach from underneath
