    I just hit 30K miles and a change of plugs is recommended. The auto parts store sold me Denso PKH20TT platinum plugs. I looked under the hood and it looks like I have to remove the air intake to get to the plugs but not the engine cover. Is my assumption correct and about how much time should I set aside to change the plugs? Are there any other red flags I should be aware of while changing the plugs?

    Thanks for the link. I followed the section on changing plugs and it was right on. Everything went like clockwork. I also returned the Denso platinum plugs and bought the Toyota plugs just to be safe. Thanks for helping me save a couple of hundred bucks in labor!
