pull the wire off, wrench the plug out, put a dab of oil on the threads of the new one, put it in, and put some dielectric grease on the top of it to keep the wire from sticking to it? how hard can it be... do it for 3 others, or 7 if your ranger has that weird 8 spark plug on a 4banger setup thing going on.
