Find out what your spark plug gap is, and the size of plugs you require from your owners manuel. Purchase a Spark plug socket for your rachett (also a rachett extension if you dont have one) And a set of Gap Measurers. Pull out the spark plug leads from the base making sure you don't pull on the cable (can damage the lead if you yank on the cable instead of the boot) and then screw out the old sparkplug and check for damage/wear. Set the gap on your new sparkplugs and screw them back in using a torque wrench for the final turn or if you don't have one only hand (do the final turn without using the rattchet just grab the wratchet extension and twist with your hand).

You need New Spark Plugs, Spark Plug Wrench Socket and Wrench Extension (at least 2-3 inch) size 10 socket and/or size 12 socket.
First of all, please check where the spark plug cover is. Once you figure that out there will probably be size 10 or/and 12 bolts holding it down. Take that off and there you will see sensors connecting to each other and holding the spark plug in the cylinders. Unplug all the sensors and pull out the circular plugs holding the spark plugs down. Pull them out and make sure that you don't drop anything into the cylinderes. You can look down into them and see the spark plugs. Get your spark plug wrench, extension, and socket wrench and stick them down in and push so that the spark plug wrench grabs them. Then unscrew the plugs, pull them out and put the next ones in and tighten them down. Just connect all the sensors, and put the cover back on.
Thanks for using FixYa and do rate if found this solution helpful.

sadly the front are easy after ,you remove the coils however, the rear three are a real pain and a 1/2 days work to get to. You have to remove the intake manifold. Use the best plugs you can afford as you want to eliminate the need to go back there again too soon. I waited until 70K to replace mine.

SOURCE: spark plugs
You have to remove the intake (and the manifold) just to get to them. They are on the engine like every other car but access is trying because you can't even see them until you start removing the above items. If you still aren't sure where all of this is, follow the plug wires from the coil pack to the plugs. If it does not have wires, it will have individual coils on top of each plug. Unbolt each coil and pull it up. The plug is under it. On your V6, they should be located on the side.
This is very tricky on this vehicle. It is, of course, recommended to take it to a shop. Some special tools may be required.

pull of the engine covers if so equipped, the plugs each have there own ignition coil, they are held in position by a single retainer, remove the coils to access the plugs. see photo of coil
