Ok, the intake manifold has to first be removed, then remove the ignition coils to access the plugs.
2.7L Always remove the ignition coil assembly by grasping at the spark plug boot, turning the assembly 1/2 turn and pulling straight back in a steady motion.
UPPER INTAKE MANIFOLD:
when you say upper intake manifold you mean on top of the engine bay? There are the three spark plugs in the rear that i cant get to.
Yes, the upper intake manifold is that large part as shown in the directions that sits on top of engine. There is absolutely no way to access the rear plugs with the upper intake still on engine. It blocks access from any direction to get to them. This is why labor at a shop is almost 3hrs to do the plugs. There are no shortcuts. You have to remove the upper intake to get to rear plugs.
