Thank for posting

This should have the 5VZ series engine which has three coils on the passenger side cylinder head and one wire for each cylinder on the opposite side. Use a 10mm socket or wrench to remove the bolts holding the coils on, then pull each out, pull out the opposite side spark plug connectors, they are of different lengths so it's almost impossible to get them mixed up remove the coils leaving the wires on for reference. You ill need a 3/8" ratchet, a 6 inch extension and a 5/8" spark plug socket to get down far enough to remove the spark plugs,

Thanks for your help. Very basic and lucky for me I had a adjusting ratchet but yes I got it done. Could have told me torque specs but I got that on line for free. All in all information given was good. So thanks.
