Venture tune up

Hi everyone...I have a 2004 venture with about 147,000 miles and am looking to do a tune up to it. I know that this requires rotating the engine and so, but do you see any other problems that might arise? Do you think the plugs will come out fine or will they be a pain in the butt? I have never done a tune up to this van either!

I just did a tune up to my 2003 venture yesterday and it has 236,000 kms (approx 147,000 miles). The spark plugs came out great, I was quite suprised by this, the back spark plugs weren't to bad, I was dredding doing them. I used a sparkplug socket and a 3/8 inch extension 3 inches long and using either a 1/4 drive wratchet with an adaptor or a 3/8 drive wratchet and I was able to go up past the exhaust and I had no problems getting the back ones out. hopefully this helps you out.
