The solution George gave you is unsafe,not enough info and misspelled..But he does have the right idea...If you don't have the parts yet be sure and inspect the plugs for shipping damage before you leave the store..(I have seen some new plugs that are cracked,broken tips and damaged threads and you don't want to see that after you get home and if you install a damaged plug it could do more damage to other engine components..)..get some hand cleaner,spark plug boot lube,2 very small packs of anti-seize,safety glasses, rubber gloves.(I assume you have the correct tools..If not you better get a good 3/8 ratchet 9 inch extension/3inch extension and a good spark plug socket that fits your certain plug..Be sure the socket has the rubber inside of it to grip the plug so you will be able to thread the plug in by hand without it falling out of socket or getting it cross-threaded....Get the parts clerk to gap the plugs unless you want to do it..they will come pre-gapped but no one can trust that..Get home, park car ,set park brake,raise hood an let engine cool down.Get safety glasses..Disconnect negative battery cable in case you drop a tool hitting the alternator or something else that could spark and cause a fire..Begin....Remove first plug wire..twist boot left to right while pulling at the same time..(Spark plug wires are easy to come apart...be careful.)...remove wire ,blow air into plug area before removing plug to remove contamination /particles...remove plug..inspect plug for irregular wear and discoloration..(I can tell you what makes the plug look good or bad but without knowing Telling you all of them would take awhile..) get new plug and lightly coat threads with anti-seize..install plug into special socket,make sure it won't fall out..use extension..,slide it in to position and slowly turn clockwise..watch and hold it straight as possible.apply a little downforce..keep turning until you can tell it is in place tighten to about 18lbs to 20 lbs..(Tight but rather a tight snug..)..DONT OVERTIGHTEN !!!..rub boot lube inside of plug wire boot and install wire..push wire on with good pressure listen closely for a slight click and 1 is done...Do all the other plugs exactly like the first..connect battery..check for any tools left under hood,start engine and test drive..........Hope this helps.....Brooks/Metalpoet...
