Default changing spark plugs on 1.8L

is changing the spark plugs on my 95 1.8L easier than changing them on the 2.2L? also, the wires look fairly new, so im assuming the plugs are ok, but might as well change them, not sure when they were changed, bought the car about a year ago and havent replaced anything but the oil and air filter. planning on changing the oil this weekend, replacing the fuel filter, pcv valve, air filter, spark plugs and draining and refilling my rear diff fluid. i already did the drain and refill on ATF for the 4eat, so that doesnt need done.

I think they both are easy, but the EJ18 is definately easier because the SOHC put the plugs on top at an angle.

Prolly take you 45 mins to an hour the first time. Just deciding what to take off for your likeing and what not.

sweet, anything easier is nice! should i even change my plugs and wires? the car runs fine, and like i said, the wires look new, so im assuming whoever changed the wires probably changed the plugs too. the pcv valve im gonna change, doesnt look as if it has ever been changed. rusty. ill change the air filter and the fuel filter also i think. just cant decide on the plugs and wires. if i decide to change these , i was gonna use the v-power NGK's. also, i was gonna drain and refill my rear diff. fluid. where is the front diff. fluid? i have an automatic transmission (4eat), is there a front diff., or is that part of the transmission?

I'd go ahead and do it. It's cheap insurance. It's up to you tho, plus wires can look good and clean for a while, my wrx still has the stock ones and they look great still with 60K on them. I don't keep the engine bay tidy either, granted I don't thrash tho either!

Just go get some $2/pc NGK BKR6E plugs when you go pick up a PCV valve. Car will be running awesome for under $15!!!

thanks

MAX
