I've got the '92 2.3 liter with two spark plugs behind some other engine parts on the drivers side closest to the firewall that I can't reach. Any tips as how to remove the plug boots? I was actually thinking some long tongs from my Bar-B-Q kit......
If someone were to change them for me I could actually cook them dinner on the grill.

Sounds like fun. I'd check a shop manual and see what they say.

Bought some really long (16 inch)pliers with a circle built into the end to pull the boots off. Got them at Harbor Freight Tools.

Nothing specifically for your application, but my manual suggests using a plug wire removing tool.

Thanks, what tool they recommend probably looks a lot like the special tool I bought.
