I want to do a tune-up on this vehicle but looked at the engine and the 3 plugs that are in the back not sure if I can change them. How do you get to them and also doing cap and wires. Any other advice would be appreciated. Thank you

First, recheck the cap and wires. I believe you have coil packs and no cap. As far as the rear plugs, I always get them from under the car, but I have a rack to work from. You will need to safely lift the front of the vehicle so you can get under it.
