I can see how it would be difficult in a V bank configuration but for a straight 4 I was thinking it should be fairly accessible.

You're going to the dealership, these are average prices coming from them. It's why many people label it the Stealership. Find a reputable local garage and get a quote from them. Some cars are more work due to certian pieces having to come out in order to reach the plugs.

    In my car the two plugs in the rear of the engine are impossible to reach without tilting the entire engine forward, this raises the price on my car as well. They are lying to you.

    Finally decided to do it myself, and easily enough by removing the two front wheels and reaching up. Less than an hour.

    Shop around for an honest mechanic that knows what they are doing. How long would it take? I can see how it would be difficult in a V bank configuration but for a straight 4 I was thinking it should be fairly accessible.

    A lot of dealers charge book time rather than the time it actually takes them to do the job. It could only take them an hour, but if the book quotes 2. I would check with some local mechanics to see what they'd charge. Like ColdAilment says, sometimes the rear of the engine is obscured by the cowl, but I wouldn't think a truck would be like that.

    It's mostly likely not the intake manifold, which would be a much larger undertaking. You may want to look for the plug wires and do it yourself.

I still managed to get the plug out of there and install a new one, it took me about 45 minutes just trying to get the socket to it with a extension plus swivel and the aid of a mirror.

    By the way, it takes forever to find it with the inspection mirror, so I ended trying by feel, not with my hands, but by feel with the extension and socket combination. I used to work on aircraft, so maybe that helped. I told my son to never buy the same plugs, but instead to spend a much as needed for long life iridium plugs The dealer probably charges a bunch of money to do it, since the motor or maybe mounts probably need to be lowered or moved.
