    I'm a car enthusiast. I've been working on vehicles for the better part of 30 yrs. However, I have never had a vehicle that I couldnt see the plugs or wires. Except for my 83 chevy diesel pickup, of course. Is there a write up here on how to change plugs on a 04 2.4l?? I did a search and found some v6 instructions...

    Its pretty simple. You have to remove th eintake assembly to get to the plugs. Then, just remove the coils and pull the plugs out. :)
