4.0 jeep still back fire afther changing timing chain

I don't mean to question your skills, but have you double-checked your plug wires, that they're going to from the distributor to the correct plugs? (If you have a distributor!)
I have worked on cars for over 40 years, and recently changed the cap, rotor, plugs and wires on my V6, and it backfired badly when I was done. Only on the third (triple check) did I figure out I had put the wires in based on counter-clockwise rotation, when in fact the distributor rotates clockwise. But many other items got inspected and checked on my engine, including a full cleaning of the throttle body, while I tried to figure it out.

How Many Miles are on it ? I would suggest changing all 6 with new ones and also plug wires, should take care of your problem, you might of crossed the plug wires when you pulled them off. starting from passenger side should be 123 and wires have #'s on them, a trick to get to rear plugs pull alternator off and you can get through to back plugs a lot easier

How hard is it to change the spark plugs

There are 6 or 8 small allen wrench bolts on the edges. Take that off and you should be able to see the plug cords. Be careful and pull at the plug not on the cord of the spark plug wire. You might separate the wire from the boot(the thick rubber piece directly on the spark plug) and then have to buy those too.

How to change spark plugs

This is a pretty straight forward job though I cant recall if you need to do anything special to reach some of the plugs.
You may need a tool to pull the boot off of the plugs. Now is a good time to go ahead and change the plug wires. If the plug wires stick to the plugs hard enough they could break during removal.
You will need various length of extensions and a special socket for the plugs to help prevent breaking them. Experienced mechanics often do it with a regular deep socket but better safe then sorry.
unplug the wires from the spark plugs makeing sure to keep them in a logical order because they have to go back in the same spot they came out from. If you are worried about messing up here then just do one at a time.
Unhook the spark plug wire from the plug. remove the plug. check the gap(these days I notice that most of the new plugs are already gapped to the right spec. but it doesnt hurt to double check) on the new plug. Carefully thread the new plug in and tighten it up. plug the spark plug wire onto the new plug. Move to the next plug, rinse and repeat.

The only hard plug get out is the one one the passenger side rear. Anyone should be able to do this. Just be careful when removing the plug wires they tend to stick on the plug pretty well.

Looking at a 95 rodeo with 115000 mile what can i expect as far as maintenance/tune ups?

Really depends on whether the maintenance has been kept up on it with records and how hard the car has been driven. Hopefully its been taken care of. I'd say a minor tune up. Plugs, wires, oil change. Check and possibly change tranny fluid. It should be good, that engine will go 250,000 - 300,000 miles without much trouble if you take care of it. True story. Hope it helps!

I don't know how to change the spark plugs on my car

The important points to remember are:

1. Use the right tools. Plain socket wrenches can break spark plugs, or cause you to drop them.

2. Be careful handling the spark plug wires, they are fragile and can be damaged by pulling too hard or bending too far. Always twist gently and pull wires firmly by the boot ends, not by the cable, and make sure they are routed and held away from drive belts and hot manifolds. It's a good idea to clean the ends with a little solvent or fuel system cleaner on a rag before reconnecting them.

3. Make sure the new spark plugs match the old in design. If they do not seem the same, take an old plug to the store, and recheck the part listing with a professional.

4. Thread the new plugs in carefully by hand, being careful not to damage or dirty the tips when inserting them, then tighten them gently. Not much force is required to seal spark plugs. Just firmly tight is good.

5. Be sure to reconnect each plug wire to the same plug location it came from. The engine will not run right otherwise.

It's pretty simple. Have a good time with it.
