Three plugs are under ignition coils and 3 plugs are under plug wires- the back 3 plugs you will have to remove the intake plenum(surge tank) to access them




1.Remove the air intake hose connected to the throttle body.

2.Remove the accelerator and cruise control cables.
3.Remove the engine coolant hose and throttle body.
4.Remove the P.C.V. hose and brake booster vacuum hoses.
5.Disconnect the vacuum hose connections.

6.Remove the surge tank stay.

7.Bleed off the pressure in the fuel pipe line to prevent the fuel from spilling.
8.Disconnect the connector from high pressure hose.

9.Remove the surge tank and gasket.
