100,000 Mile Maintenance

So I got my maintenance done this week. Coolant flush and fill, trans filter kit and refill, difs, plugs, belt, oil, washer fluid. $330 in labor, $440 parts and fluids. Took them 2 full days. Jeep is ready to ride for another 100k. Guess I could have done most of it myself but it was aggravation free this way not to mention getting rid of all that drained fluid. Good feeling to have it all done, like getting a new Jeep. Plus I probably would have procastinated another couple of months before I finally did it. Trusted local mechanic shop did the work.

Nothing like a fresh tune up.

Did they check the spark plug wire resistance, or have you previously replaced them? Most of the 05 wires are about 3 ft. long and, when in good condition, should have ~12000-20000 ohms resistance, end to end. Maximum resistance should be no more than ~10000 ohms per foot. Give some consideration to Taylor Shorty wires, if you need to replace them. I've had them on my 05 Hemi LX for about 6-7 years now and, IMO, they're great.

I doubt they knew about the resistance measurement. We talked about replacing them but decided not to since I have'nt noticed anything. I suspect I would be getting misfire codes if there was a problem, maybe not. I probably won't check them myself now everything is all back together but I will remember what you said for the future. Thanks for the info.
