I have decided to change my own spark plugs on my 2006 Chrysler Pacifica Touring after finding out a local auto shop was planing to charge me $300 plus to get the work done. I will do my best to describe how I was able to replace my spark plugs clearly. If something doesn't seem clear to you please post here and I will do my best to answer your question. Here we go before I start I must say I am not a mechanic in anyway but I do have some experience in automobiles just not in GM cars. Anyway lets get started.The tools and parts you will need.1. Remove the plastic cover by pulling it straight up. There is no screws or bolts holding it down.2. Go along the side of your intake manifold and unplug any plugs and hoses you see that is connected to the intake manifold. You should be unplugging atleast 6-7 plugs and 3 hoses. There will be atleast two plugs located on the right side of the manifold that will need pliers to remove the rivets.
3. Take your 10mm or 12mm deep socket and remove 7 bolts from the top of your intake manifold. The far right yellow ciricle indicates a plug that needs to be removed not a bolt.4. Take your 8mm socket and deep socket and unbolt 7 bolts. You will remove 6 at the front and 2 at the back.

back after removing the two bolts be sure you keep the rubber washer. you do not want to lose it
:5. Take your 10mm or 12mm deep socket and remove one bolt thats attached to your dizzy. 6. Take your 10mm deep socket and remove two bolts that hold your throttle body cable down, go ahead and also loosen up the screw on that clamp that holds your intake box hose to your throttle body together.7. At this step you should have removed all the nuts and bolts that hold the intake manifold down and have unplugged all hoses and plugs as well. Go around your intake manifold one more time to make sure everything has been removed, after checking again then you can slowly remove the intake manifold by slowly lifting it straight up and pulling it towards the front of the car, also the throttle cable must be detached from the manifold before pulling the manifold off.8. Congrats you DID it!9. Now you're ready to replace all 6 of your spark plugs!10. The way I put everything back was. I plugged all plugs and hoses back in first and put the smallest bolts in first to biggest just to make sure everything lineds up. It took me about 1 1/2hrs to complete this job
My gas pedal has been sticking really bad so I took this time to go ahead and clean my throttle body. All it took was 3 bolts and it came right off the manifold.
after cleaning (it feels smooooooth now):
