Spark Plug Maintenance Schedule, miles or time?
I had the spark plugs on my 2002 4.7L HO replaced by the dealership on March 2007 at 77K. As far as I know, those plugs in there were the originals, I bought the rig used at 72K.
According to my service information, the plugs should be replaced every 30K or 2 Years. I'm at 92K right now, so I have put only 14K on the current set in 2 years (It only drive it a few times a month or so).
Even though its been 2 years I don't feel at all like the plugs need to be replaced yet. Personally I feel the plugs can go by more of a milage basis instead of time, so I was going to wait until they have a good 30K on them. Would you agree?
Also, I took it to the dealership to do the plugs because the rears looked difficult to get to, they charged in the neighborhood of $250 parts/labor for the replacement. The plugs themselves are relatively cheap, so if the rears are not as hard to do as I'm thinking they are, maybe I should attempt to do them myself the next time?
