Default Tune up - where are the spark plugs?

I want to change the spark plugs on my wife's Pilot, but when I removed the plastic engine cover, I could not see where the spark plugs are located.

Is this thing engineered so that half the engine needs to be dismantled to access the plugs?

If a mechanic is REQUIRED to do this, how much is the average cost for a simple change of the plugs?

I dont know what year you have but.......my 04 Pilot has what I called" coil on plug". If you open the hood and look straight down the front of the engine you will see three coils. The plus are under each coil. No wires on these newer cars. The coil would need to be unbolted then lifted up off the plug, then the plug can come out...

Raz, excellent info, thank you. My wife's Pilot is a 2006 (stupid of me not to have posted that).

I'll check under the hood and look for those access coils. If need be, I'll snap a photo and submit it here. Your photo is the perfect solution.

Thanks!

Why do you want to do the plugs on a 2006?

Are you upgrading the plugs? The standard plugs on the Pilot should be good for 100K.

Check out the following thread.
