O.k.,if you look at the top front of the motor you will see one to two motor braces that attach to the front of the engine and run to the upper radiator support.Remove these braces then use a tie down strap connected to the front upper radiator support or another support to ratchet the engine forward some.The engine will ratchet forward and lock in place with a ratchet tie down strap.Once this is done this gives you extra room at the back of the engine to replace the spark plugs.The video below posted shows how this is done on a different model but the same concept.
