Iv read all the thread's. I have all the info I need, besides I was hoping someone had a list of all the tools I will need, just to make sure I have everything. Mainly concerning the tools needed to take off the bracket with the two hard to get to screws.

which bracket are you talking about that has hard to get to screws? the only bracket you would need to remove is the ECM bracket and those screws are right there on top. then each coil pack has two screws that are right on top as well. then once the coil packs are off, then there are your plugs. the 3.2L has the easiest plugs i have ever changed. definitely not a hard job

Then you never changed the plugs on a 1970 F250 with a 250 cubic inch straight six in it. You could literally stand inside the engine compartment while you were changing the plugs! :histeric:

all the threads iv read talk about needing a ratcheting wrech to turn the bolts 1/16th of a turn on two of the bolts. just trying to find out what size that ratcheting wrech is.

Then you've never even the plugs on a Chrysler 300m 3.5
They are RIGHT there. You can most likely do them by HAND.
I could only wish all cars were like that in terms of simplicity... but then again the 300m has its battery somewhere in the wheel well.... so yeah. LMAO
