Also take off your cold air intake makes it easier

When u open your hood, you will see a "Ignition Coil Pack" , center top of engine. The wires to the top of the coil pack go to each of the 6 spark plugs. One at a time, trace each wire from coil pack to either side of engine. Gently twist then pull the wire boot off. One wire is off, plugs are threaded inside of engine block. Use socket with short extension and remove, install new plugs with firm tightness, but do not over tighten.
This is picture of your coil and plugs:


This is a picture of plug location and spark plug wire boot:

Use Motorcraft, Autolite, or NGK plugs. Copper work best, Platinum last longer.

These cars don't have spark plug wires. They have Coil On Plugs.

The spark plugs are located underneath the COPs which are on top of the engine near where the intake manifold meets the cylinder head. There is one COP and one fuel injector next to one another for each cylinder. The COP is the larger of the two cylindrical shaped objects and it doesn't have the chrome fuel rail sitting on top of it.
The spark plugs are very easy to change on these engines but I must caution you to not over tighten them! That is the number 1 cause of spark plug blow outs. Make sure that you use a torque wrench to tighten them!
There is a thread, on the last page of he DIY tech forum, that outlines the procedure and has the torque specs.

I needed to use my swiveling socket to reach one or two on the pass side. Start with the drivers side because it is much easier over there. +1 to whoever suggested removing your CAI or factory air intake. I don't see it being possible without doing so. For future reference, here is a diagram of the firing order in case you need it: Click image for larger version

Three on one side, Three on the other. YOU CAN'T MISS THEM. Coil on plug are for GT's. His V6 has a coil pack. You follow the wires from the coil pack to the plug. COIL PACK http://1.cdn.lib.americanmuscle.com/...g-wires-07.jpg

haha, I got a few laughs from this post.

Yeah though, 3 sparks plugs on each side. 6 in total
Follow the wires from your coil pack and do one wire at a time, do not get them mixed up. each wire needs to plugged into a certain location

I just recently replaced my coil pack, spark plug wires and spark plugs. definitely feels a bit more responsive.

Maybe it's just because I had to suffer and drive to work for a few weeks with a bad something. I just said **** it, and bought everything since the coil pack was the original from 1995, and the spark plugs and wires were 5 years old from when I first bought the car.
