Default Spark Plugs

Time to replace my spark plugs. Any recommendations as to what I should purchase? Thanks.

Can't go wrong with a new set of the factory ACDelco plugs. I just ordered a new set along with wires from RockAuto, they have a mail in rebate offer going on for the plugs.

^ I agree as no reason I can think of to go with anything other than what the maker specifies. You must have a ton of miles on her.

I'm doing mine @ 43k miles since my car is now 5 years old. Not called for until 100k, but no harm in staying ahead of the curve is my thought to make sure it keeps running like new.

I have about 93,500 miles on it! I'll take the plugs in with my next oil change and have them replace them. The dealership here in Lake Havasu let's me bring my own parts in. Some items, as I'm sure you are well aware of, are significantly less expensive than at a dealership. They don't mind.

I haven't had to change spark plugs in 30 years. All my cars and RVs, have been diesels !!

Careful here; for some reason the plug wires are an art to put on where they will stay. . I've had twice to come off. Of course on the right bank which is a real hassle to get to. Definitely let a vette tech do it. Dale

Wow, sounds like that's been good one.
