that last plug on the driver's side, I did by feel. Bifocals didn't help at all.

Not all iridium plugs are "long life" plugs, read the "Basic Service Life" page from Denso's website, I'm sure NGK iridium plugs would be similar, so if you go that route make sure you get a "long life" iridium plug!!

I almost went with Iridium plugs on my V6 but after reading other peopleís comments/opinions/experiences I opted to just follow the service manual and get the standard copper Denso plugs.

The process was so straight forward and easy that to change every 30k really didnít seem like a big deal to me.

I ran NGK Laser Iridium plugs for 160K Km and they looked pretty good when I pulled them. I changed them anyway, and plan to go another 100K miles. Not sure why others are having issues. I know there's a lot of fakes out there so try buying from a reputable source like RockAuto. Under $10 each


I use a 18" 3/8 socket extension when changing them , removing the plugs on the driver's side firewall is a breeze with it. You can also use this same extension to lower your spare tire.

Make sure the coil connectors catch and lock when you slide them back on. Gently tug on it and see if it comes loose.
