That info should be in your owners manuel. If not I would say at least pull them, and look at them. Thay should be dry ,also some white and brown color to them for normal wear .I would say not to worry about it until 40 thousand

Ford Recommends Every 30,000 Miles. I would change them every 50,000 or when ever you think that is getting Sluggish. 30K is not enough time on todays Plugs.

How many miles in between spark plug change on 06 h3 hummer?


why change if there's nothing wrong with it. as long as you don't get a hard time starting it and the engine runs fine then there's no need to change. Like what we are always say " why fix if it's not broken".

What mileage do change 2006 toyota highlander spark plugs 3.3 v6


i would chande the plugs at or around 60,000 to 70,000 miles. this is about the correct mileage. they may last longer but not worth the expensence of converter damage due to misfire and also gas mileage loss.

I have a 2004 Honda Civic sedan with 71,000 miles on it, when should I have the timing belt changed?


Don't necessarily change the timing just because of age or mileage. A perfect motor will always run the same timing, no matter how old. Instead, if you feel it has been a while since your last service, hit the spark plugs, wires, hoses, vacuums, etc. If you STILL feel the need to have the timing looked at, simply send it to a shop to have them evaluate it as well.

At what mileage do spark plugs in 2006 hyundai sonata need to be changed?


Typically at 100k miles. If the car is used for mostly city driving and in severe climate area's it may be necessary to change them as early as 60k. Make sure to use OEM plugs. Also dont forget to change the spark plug wires, they wear out too!

How to preform a tune-up on my 2009 Saturn Vue


It has a maintenance recomendation from the manufacturer for replacement of the spark-plugs at 100,000 miles. You don't list mileage or V6 or L4 cylinder. Make sure engine is cold because the cylinder heads are aluminum and can be damaged if plugs are removed hot or overtightened upon reassembly. Remove spark-plug wires and replace spark-plugs. Sometimes the wires break when you remove them and will require replacement. If you coat the inside of the wires where they connect with the plugs with dielectric grease it will help prevent the wires from breaking upon future disassembly.

Spark plugs change


remove the spark plug lead from the plug, blow out any dirt etc from around the plug, undo the plug and remove from the vehicle, make sure the plug has the right gap setting before installing into the engine.
Check each plug that you remove for any sign of a wet or oily plug which are signs of more serious problems.
If all the plugs are dry with just a light brown carbon deposit on them they are firing ok.
Hope this helps

2006 Toyota Tacoma Low Mileage or Not...Spark Plug Life


24 mpg on the highway is actually pretty good for that truck. at 48000 miles and being 3 years old its time for plugs, air filter, and fuel filter if available. thats cheap maintenance for now. but if very self conscious, run some fuel injector cleaner first, then change the plugs, because any octane booster or fuel injector cleaner can run the risk of fouling out a plug, by creating a hotter spark then what, normal gas does. the burn is hotter.

Wrench light is on and odometer shows negative mileage


The negative number means the car should have had it's oil changed that many miles ago. Oil life starts at 100% for new oil & counts down every 10%. At 15% the display will always show, which means it's near time to change the oil.

usersteve83, your oil may have been changed but the timer not reset. Reset the timer as shown...
1. Turn ignition to the "ON" position. (do not start engine)
2. Press SEL/RESET repeatedly until the oil life indicator is displayed.
3. Press & hold the SEL/RESET for about 10 seconds until it blinks then let go of the button.
4. Press the SEL/RESET again for about 5 seconds or until the oil life indicator resets to 100%.

Wrench = Maintenance Minder: Symbol letter & number...
Symbol A - Relace engine oil.
Symbol B - Replace engine oil & filter, Inspect front & rear brakes, Check parking brake adjustment, Visually inpest the tie rods, suspension components,driveshaft boots, brake hoses & line (including ABS), all fluid levels & their conditions, exhaust system, fuel lines & connections.
Symbol 1 - Rotate tires.
Symbol 2 - Replace air cleaner element (dusty conditions every 15K miles) & replace dust & pollen filter (behind glovebox) every 15K miles if mainly dusty or city driving.
Symbol 3 - Replace transmission fluid.
Symbol 4 - Replace spark plugs.
Symbol 5 - Replace engine coolant.

All above are taken from the 2006 Civic EX owner's manual.
