Spark Plugs

Q: I have a front wheel drive vehicle with a V6 engine. How do I change the back spark plugs? I don’t even see them. Will I need any special tools?

A: Sometimes you need to take the plastic cover (if so equipped) off the top of the engine to access them. You will need a ratchet, spark plug socket, extension, and a swivel joint or two to maneuver through the tight space. On other vehicles, replacing the spark plugs on a transverse mounted V6 is easier from under the vehicle using an automotive lift.
