    Default 1996 Toyota Camry V6 Spark Plug Change

    I have a 1996 v6 Camry and need to change the spark plugs. The rear looks
    like a real "Bithc" How do you get to the middle one without removing"half
    the engine" Do I need any special spanners. I have a good socket set and
    plug spanner.

    Thank you

    Louis

    This is one of the reasons I bought a 4 cylinder. From what I've
    seen, the trick seems to be to put the spark plug socket on the plug
    first, the add an assortment of swivel universal joints and various
    length extensions until to get the right combination. May also help to
    try a spark plug socket with the universal joint built in. Then I've
    also heard it's a good idea to thread in the new plug by hand with a
    length of rubber tubing slipped over the plug top, to avoid cross
    threading.

    Absolutely Correct.

    If one looks at the archives of the newsgroup, there are quite a few people
    who have really screwed up their engine (cross threading, etc) trying to do
    the V6 plugs themselves. Admittedly, many have done it successfully, but the
    cost of a mistake is very high.
