Very helpful You may want to include a piece on how rotten the back plug on the passenger side is to get out. Took me 20 minutes to get the right combination of extensions and finally got it out. Did not want to take the coolant tank off to do it.

I just want to voice my thanks. I came to this website specifically looking to learn how to change my spark-plugs and there was my answer at the top of the page. I'm glad I found these forums, just learning to maintain my vehicle myself, and it looks like these will be a great help. I hope you put up more maintenance videos soon.

Very good - I must admit I havn't even looked for the plugs on my KJ and without watching this guess I wouldn't have found them. Thanks for that

well said; I have a corvette which is a plug nightmare, I was going to just run to the store to grab some plugs today thinking I could do the wife's liberty in about 15 minutes. Oops, not. Any plug recommendations? I figuring to buy bosch or autolite platinums, about $5 each.

She barely gets 300 miles running the tank to empty 17-18 gals though she does very little highwahy. My vette does better!

It almost 90k miles and granted it's a heavy car.

for plugs go with the factory NGK, you will have problems if not. I tried E3 and they lasted 4k miles before fouling out. pulled them out and they looked terrible...others have had problems too with other plugs.

Interesting - well thanks, I got Bosch but I'll take them back, nothing like real experience.

Struggling with the PCV, that thing doesn't want to just pull out. I think maybe it needs to be spun counterclockwise I read here somewhere, I'll look back at that.

I use Bosch Platinum (just the regular ones not E3 or E4) and they have worked fine. You do need to change these every 30K. For some reason the 3.7L is hard on plugs.

The PCV valve does require a quarter turn and pull out. Kind of like a twist lock electrical plug. I believe down, but if I'm wrong I'm not buying you a new one.

SO, the ole' taillight warranty on your advice eh?? Ha, well thanks much and I'll see exactly what plugs I ended up with, no sense looking for trouble.

On my wifes previous car, a Toyota, it had similar plugs mounted straight down in the engine with those extension tubes connecting. She picked it up from a shop after a tune up once, drove a few miles and heard a small explosion then some very loud noise till she turned it off. I rushed there, opened the hood.. the garage hadn't screwed one plug in except barely i guess, it worked loose and shot up into the hood, denting it and then ricocheting around for a bit.
