Go to the library and look in Chiltons Auto Repair manual. If you can't look at the engine and see how to change the spark plugs, there's some cunning trick to it. You've done the job before on other engines, so explaining replacement isn't necessary. Something is probably in the way that you can remove or work around. It's best to know what to do as well as what to not do.

The engine was assembled at the factory by who- engineering graduates? No. Ordinary guys who got showed the way- highschool drop-outs could do it with being showed how once or twice. Before you give up or get too creative, get the straight story from the manual. The plugs may be hard to remove from carbon deposits on the threads, so be careful. It's best to soosen and retighted them annually to prevent this. I don't think you're stupid. I do think GM is cunning and Mr. Goodwrench is a crook.

$350? Expect the job to be no walk in the park. That's about 3 hours labor. In my crystal ball I see long extensions, universal joints and maybe a floor jack. When you're through come back and tell us if the DIY was worth it, or should others bite the bullet and pay.
