just completed a plug removal and install on my '02 awd v6. if you have the time and patience it's straight forward; common sense was most helpful. to gain access to the plugs, both fore and aft, you must remove, in short, everything near to, associated with, the air intake system. common tools plus a 1/4 socket, with 8 inch extension to hold a #10 star bit. these star bolts are under the rectangular plastic plate atop the intake. once you have those out, disconnect all the wiring, carefully. lift the intake out, look for plug covers, fore and aft, ignition assembly lays atop each row of three plugs. with the hands of a surgeon, remove the ignition assembly, and by golly ye shall see your reward. easy from then on.
replaced my plugs with the iridium 'honeys'; marked improvement in starting, acceleration, smoothnes, noise, and gas mileage to the value of + 3.0%. changed out the oil with mobile1 extended performance, changed transmission fluid. took a shower. time involved, 7.0 hrs. dealer be damned,,priceless!

Under the intake manifold, it will need to be removed. Not too hard to do for the average diy but recommend buying a repair manual as a guide. you will need a 1/4" drive T30 torx socket with a long extension one of the bolts is hidden but the others are under the black cover on the top of the intake. you will also need to remove the coil pack held on with torx bolts. 8 or 10 inverted torx socket needed for that.

Did you use the recommended plugs or did you use a new style like E-3 or Bosch +4 or something similar. Sometimes using a plug other than the original type can cause problems. Check and make sure all the wires or plug connections to the plugs are secure. Check to see if a spark plug has a cracked insulator. If you used antiseize on the threads make sure none of it got on the spark plug electrode or it will missfire.
Hope these ideas help.

The codes are the 'system is too lean' on both banks (each side of the engine). Sounds like you may have 1 or more injectors not working correctly. They may have been clogged up and not giving enough fuel to the engine. You could try a good fuel injector cleaner like Berryman's Chemtool B-12 in the gas tank, but the injectors maybe too stopped up to cleared by this cleaner, but it's cheaper to try it first. It may take a can or two to get any results, I put 1 in my tank every 6 months to keep the injectors clean. You know the gas we buy is near perfect and the junk they add just messes everything up.
