All you will need to change out the plugs is a metric deep well socket with an extension bar. Change your cap and rotor while you're at it. Change your plug wires one at a time. Don't just rip them all off at once. If you bought after market stuff, the cap and wires may not be numbered. Your cap is usually held on with two small bolts. You can use a screw driver or and 8 or 10mm socket.Or it may just have two quick disconnect clips. Can't remember which. Not hard to do.

A cap and rotor is probably under $25. Not very expensive to replace.

I know they say replace the cap but why would you have the cars running fine clearly hasn't given him any problems

I'm only saying this because its his own car so if anything breaks he knows how to fix it

JohnnyD, if you want to do a basic tune up, you may as well do it right the first time. If you're going to go replace plugs and wires, you may as well spend the extra $25 and do the cap and rotor also. If you pull an old cap and rotor, you will notice crusty corrosion on the contacts if they haven't been changed in a while.

this is what i did i took one plug and wire off at a time and layed them out so i know which one is which then took cap off took rotor buttom out fine sandpapered the end where i could see the coriosion and also sand four metal tops inside distubuter cap she works mint now
