1999 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

whats an easy way to get to the two plugs in back on passenger side? I've been told that the engine mount needs to be loosened and the engine jacked up to get to those two plugs.
Do you

There is no easy way. You can lift the engine, but if you have access to a rack to lift the car, you should be able to get them from under the car.

Let me know if you have other questions. If there is no access to a rack, the next best thing is to unbolt the motor mount and lift it.

It's kinda tedious, but there is an alternative to unbolting the engine and lifting it. You can remove the windshield washer and radiator overflow tanks, then unbolt the a.C. Blower motor and evaporator housing from the firewall. Release all of the wire connections, and you can then pull it forward and lift it up some. Leave the a.C. Lines connected. There is 3 nuts under the hood, and 1 nut behind the carpet on the passenger side. Then remove the plastic inner fender well on the passenger side. Removal of the wheel makes this method easier, but not necessary. Then you can easily get to the two back plugs with a ratchet and short extension. Hope this helps anybody that has one of these tune up nightmares.
