If you have the 2.5L, you'll have to remove the whole top of the engine to get the back spark plugs out....air plenum, EGR equipment, etc...It took me about 3-4 hours to replace the back spark plugs in my '98.....the dealer wanted to charge me $300-$400....a lot of labor involved.  I recommend getting yourself the Chilton's manual for you make and model and setting aside a nice Saturday to starting digging for the plugs.  Spend the extra money to get yourself the long lasting plugs (50,000+ miles) because trust me, you'll never want to do this again.  You'll find that whatever you try to fix in the engine compartment, you'll be tearing half the engine apart to get to it.  Don't forget your gaskets for when you replace the air plenum.

Well you have to take off the 6 plenum bolts. There is two bolts to unhook the steering linkage and 2 bolts to disconnect the metal hose that is right near it.With a flathead you will disconnect the mass air flow.you will also have to disconnect a couple sensors on one side and a few small hoses on the other side. There is also a bolt on each side of the plenum in the back that must be disconnected(kinda tricky). From there you should be able to lift the plenum up exposing the spark plugs. make sure you replace the plenum gasket. there is also a gasket on the metal hose that i mentioned before.It would also be a good idea to replace that. Be very careful removing and installing bolts. Aluminum threads wear very  easily. Spark plugs 1,3, and 5 should be right there for you to see. Remove the spark plug tubes and remove and replace spark plugs. Usually good to do one at a time so no confusion when putting wires back on. Install new gasket then assemble everything the reverse way you took it off. Replacing just the plugs should take you no more than an hour with the info i just gave you.
