Just follow your spark plug wires to the spark plug. Sometimes there is a plastic cover for cosmetic reasons that manufacturers install. Usually real easy to remove then you would see the spark plugs.

when you look down at the engine you will see four black wires the spark plugs are under them about three and half to four down you will need a six inch extention on your plug socket to get them easier.

You mean Honda's have engines? Wow, I thought it was a bumble bee hive under the hood that ran the car down the street or a rice cooker.

You see the 4 spark plug wires going to the center your valve cover? Pull them up by the boots(ends). Be careful not to pull to hard and brake the wires. The plugs are down the holes that the boots went into. Before you pull them out make sure the engine is cool. The head is aluminum, and you could pull the threads out of the head if you don't wait until it is cool

Open you hood and look between the radiator and the engine. You'll see 4 fairly thick wires going to the front of the engine. Remove the wires carefully because the tip that's attached to the spark plug may come off the wire. After it is removed you'll see the spark plug. When replacing make sure the gap of the spark plugs are set correctly.On the hood their is usually a sticker that has some of your cars information on it. Engine model and engine size. It will also say what the recommended spark plug gap is.And put a tiny bit of anti-seize compound on the threads of the new spark plugs when you install them. Do each one, one at a time to keep you from accidentally putting the wires on the wrong plugs. Don't over tighten them. Usually screw them in as tight as you can with a socket without a ratchet. Then attach the ratchet and tighten 1/4 to 1/2 turn after the plug can't be tightened anymore by hand
