    I'm going to dig into this soon even though the sparkplugs looked ok. That rear plug may be the culprit of a miss issue I'm having from the engine. What tools should I gather to make this job complete? Not wanting to take the hood off the car...

    Spark plug socket, 9" extension, u joint, 6" extension, ratchet. That's my setup and is doable. No bl, hood on.

    Yeah, the upper extension can be shorter, but you'll want something there.

    What they said and I also used one of the little mirrors on a flexible rod to see what I was doing. Also if you have a compressor, get in there and blow all the stuff out before you start

    Any of the single cathode NGK plugs are the right ones. So yes, those will do fine.

    I changed out the plugs and wires on my ‘00 today. It took me an hour to change 1-5 and almost 2 hours to change #6. Patience is definitely a virtue changing that rear plug. Lol. I used a shorty on the socket and a 3” and 10” wobble extention on top of that. I had a random misfire and the swap cleared it up nicely. Replaced with NGK iridiums and a set of NGK premium wires.

    I HATE the #6 plug. Hate hate hate. Good job getting it handled.

    #6 is a tina. Good job in not getting frustrated and skipping it.
