Tune-up time overdue

Recommended Posts

My MPG's have dropped to 365 miles on a tank so upon checking when I'd last changed my air filter (49901 Wix) it became apparent that it was time again. Changed it, confident my MPG's would once again allow me 390-400 miles on a tank. Nope. Looked up the recommended spark plug change and see it's 90K, hmmm. I'm at 107K now so it's overdue. Called my local Ford dealer for an estimate ...................holy smoke! Parts/labor to change the plugs is a whopping $469 !!! How can this be? Oh yeah, if the plug breaks it's $65 each to remove the broken piece! It's a plain old spark plug. WTH is there to break?

Called the Parts Dept back & asked the price of plugs. $15.50 each.

SP448 (AGSF32YPC) Motorcraft at Rock Auto are $6.41 & $7.09 @ Advance Auto !!

Mind blowing!

it takes under 30 minutes to change these plugs. they are right on top. 8MM socket for the bolt that hold the coilpack on and a sparkplug socket to remove the plug. i bought the new Irdiumn pluga at Oriellys for under 6.00 each

I usually do plugs, points and rotor all at the same time. Don't forget the dealer leaves you little paper sheets on the floor as part of the $469.
