If it's the 4 cylinder you don't have spark plug wires. If it's the 6 cylinder you do. HTH. -Jim

Same as T S T said. Only difference is you unplug the "coil over" that plugs directly onto the spark plug. Be sure to hold the handle of the screwdriver with either a heavy rag or heavy rubber gloves so you don't get a powerful shock. A modern ignition system generates about 60,000 volts DC! HTH. -Jim
