Default spark plug replacement

I'd like to change the plugs on my 2007. Recently cleaned the throttle body (thanks for the how to's) and didn't see anything at a quick glance that looked like the typical spark plug wires, and dizzy to show me where the plugs were.

I'd like to know also if there's anything I should be aware of as far as procedure since I'm still getting aquainted with the truck.

Thanks for any reply

Tom in FL

Chilton's manuals are your friend. I've always had one for every vehicle I've ever owned.

The plugs are up by the top of the motor . They have a coil pack over each one of them .

Plug changes are pretty straight forward. I like to use an old spark plug boot on a screwdriver to start the plugs into the holes.

Thanks. I downloaded a service manual and see what you mean about the coil packs..that's what I was seeing.

Preciate the responses.

4 of my 8 spark plug boots got stuck in the spark plug well, so i let WD soak in the center of boot and slowly pried around spark plug to let WD reach inside of boot, then with a little twisting/pulling/cursing got em out. Not without damage though.

There is one thing i noticed, that i didnt get to try because i saw it after i was done, but on the top of boot there is a very tiny hole. I bet you could shoot air into that hole and the boot would pop off.
(I put a lot of grease on boots on re-install to avoid this severe pain next time)
