Up top, reach over the motor give the plug wires a quarter twist and pull straight back.
Change your plug wires one at a time as not lose place of what goes where?

On a 94? The OIL dipstick, or trans dipstick? You shouldn't have to move anything. It'* a piece of cake. Should take 5 minutes for the front three, maybe 8 minutes for the back.

The OILdip stick is right in front of the wire hold down on the front. Never even tried to change the back ones yet

The bottom edge of the retainer has 2 tabs that lock it to the valve cover and prevent it from coming up.

Release these two tabs (one near each end about 1.5" in from each end), and slide the retainer UP towards you.

Reach for the strut bar from the front of the car, yank yourself up ontop of the radiator, put one hand on the upper intake, and change away!
