Is this a question?

Maybe it's a code or an anagram. ;->

how do you install the plugs, or were you going to give instructions yourself? Not sure of what you meant to say.

Welcome to the forum.

Pull the intake plastics off, remove coil packs. Hit the plug holes with compressed air to clean before pulling plugs. Pull plugs, gap and install new plugs. Pretty much the how to of it assuming you're asking.

Ok I am new with Fiat engines so I am unfamiliar with the placement of the spark plugs, am I to understand that they are actually under the coil packs? This is the first thing I have done to this car other than drive it now it has 90,000 miles on it and loosing MPG. Thanks in advance!

Ok I figured it out. I took the plunge, and found the spark Plugs way down under the Coil packs. All went well also replaced the air filter with a K&N As some others had said, didn't take long once I figured it out. What I am finding out is you cant find any parts on the shelf , Everything has to be ordered. So I went to Amazon, way cheaper then the dealer. I have had the car just over a year, maybe 15 months, bought it used from the dealer. Was owned by a salesman. It had 58,000 on it then and it now has 90,400. I think they were the original plugs and filter. I bought it as a commuter and it is the perfect commuter car.

You should be proud. You did more than most would attempt.
I fully agree about Amazon... and VERY happy to hear you have 90k on your car! Don't hear too much high mileage, cars haven't been out that long!

I hope they weren't the original plugs! On that engine they are supposed to be changed every 32,000 miles. I strongly suggest downloading a pdf version of the owner's manual and becoming familiar with the scheduled maintenance section (not called that).

Thinking the same...three times the mileage they should have on them! Glad it got done though...even if it is a bit late.
