Changing plugs and wires

Is it even possible to change plugs on my factory air conditioned 97 4 cylinder engine without moving the darn compressor? Any tips?

Absolutely, use a wobble-joint (u-joint) between the socket and 3/8" drive ratchet wrench to get to the spark plug.

Easy way to put the plug back in without cross threading - slip a hunk of small vacuum hose over the end of the plug. Use the hose to spin it back in.
