Took the ngk's out this weeknd - didn't look too bad - put in new Champion Iridium from Atlantic british. About 90 mins per side - but would have been faster with proper plug socket and u-joint on extension bar. New pcv as well. I should be good for another 10 years ! Seems to idle more smoothly now - let's see if there is any difference in gas mileage. 8 new quarts of castrol syntec and motorcraft filter.

Nothing wrong with those .... I'll have them!

 

About 10K miles ago I changed the plugs in my F150, which I've had since 101K miles.  I had not changed them since about 180K (although had cleaned them half a dozen times).  I finally had to concede that 60 thou gaps and electrodes eroded to close to nothing meant I had to pay 8 x $2 for new ones.  It did run better, but little improvement in gas mileage.  They are only a gap for a spark to jump after all.

 

She will turn over to $300K by the middle of next week .... I'm thinking of putting her through the wash for the first time this year as a birthday present ....
