Tracer :

Hello, I am Randall. I have reviewed your question and working on it now. Will return shortly

Tracer :

ok, lets start with plugs first. on each side of engine is a cover on top of valve covers. You remove that cover to expose 4 coils on each side. There is a coil on top of each plug. Un bolt coil, slip it out, change each plug. you can click HERE for directions

Tracer :

Thermostat is in the housing at end of radiator hose. You can click HERE for that info

I cant come up with any more detailed pics or info. I just cant remember. i thought they were 2 clips near outer edge of that cover. If you want/can,, you can snap a pic and send to me using the paperclip icon you see on this post

nothing out of norm for the oil change,. If cover under side, then it comes off, be sure to coat oil filter seal with oil so it does not stick
