It's not easy.
It took me four hours to change the three plugs on the rear bank, but it can be done.
The way I did it, I put the aztec up on ramps, slid underneath and followed the spark plug wires down to the plugs. I ended up working mostly by feel instead of sight.
With a lot of patience, an assortment of extensions and a swivel joint, the plugs can be changed.
An extra elbow in your right arm, and a large assortment of four letter words would also be handy to have.

Basically, Remove the belt. Then remove the bolt that the tensioner pivots on and remove it. It's fairly easy.You may need to remove the belt pulley to make it easier.
The problem comes as your trying to get to it. If you can't see it well or something is in the way. Like the plastic overflow tank or something like that. Then you will need to remove what is keeping you from getting to the tensioner. I did one on a four cylinder last week. The belt pulley on that one had a left hand thread. The tensioner itself should be right hand thread.

hey there,that car might have a self tensioner pulley,,meaning you find the right bolt and when you turn it one way or another the belt will become loose itself some cars employ that method,,,,

This should be a 3400 SFI engine. the T-stat is in a tricky location. Your top radiator hose is connected to an aluminum pipe. thats the T-stat housing. the T-stat is in there where it connectes to the lower intake there are 1 bolt1 that you need to remove.and the lower on just needs to be lose. the lower hole is sloted. you have to remove the exhaust crossover shield and coolant bypass tube if you have one. its going to be a very tight fit if you leave the crossover pipe on. you can remove it. then its 1 2 3. this is alittle longer than most T-stats i would say about 1.5 hours assuming no studs on your crossover break. just be carefully to apply even pressure when removing those bolts on the exhaust pipe.
