If you go away from manufacturer brand then Bosch makes good plugs. Unless you have a high performance car then it isnt really necessary to be the high dollar plugs. The most important thing is to make sure youg et your gap right before installing. to check your gap just buy a 99 cent gapper and check one of your old ones when you remove it.

Personnaly, I go with the manufacturer brand on my cars.
My ford uses motorcraft and my 70 mustang uses Autolite.

I have a 2003 jeep grand cherokee, It started


wow, no engine option stated, and no DTCs.

4.0L I-6 or 4.7Liters?

WHY DO THAT FIRST. $$$$ parts first.

why not do a tune up first.

you swap in the most expensive parts first? ouch,

The PCM tells you when ckp or cmp fail, with DTC codes

so its not that. but you never posted ALL DTC errors. why not do that.?

do a real tuneup? heat (spark plugs, filters.)

if you have P030x errors,

eg: p0301 is cylinder #1 is misfiring (3 ways to do that not JUST spark)

eg: P0300, random on all cylinders. (fuel mix wrong) or never tuned up.



Misfire 101; (example P0301 DTC)

P030x codes, are all just about spark, misfire is caused by 3 things, (at least)

1: sure spark. weak. (tuneups work as does hV wires sets if no COPS) if 1 cop is bad move it to other location, does failure follow the move>???????? buy new cop boots if engine has cops.

COPS means coil over plug, so v6 has 6, v8 has 8.

coil packs have 3 coils inside for v6 and 4 for V8. called wasted spark to any tech.

2: low compression, think of your v6 (is it) as 6 engines, not 1.

3: wrong FUELING rates. including air leaks to 1 cylinder.

if engine has EGR that too, will cause gross misfiring.

so can an air leak near one intake runner, causing 1 cylinder to misfire.





why not scan it with a real scan tool that can see ALL jeep codes

then post all DTCs found. both idling and driving for 45mph or 1/2hr.

with these facts and what engine is there we can do the remaining tests.

free book

The tune up is this and filters.

do the tune up, new wires, and plugs using correct spark plugs not some bs, magic ones, use spec, plugs first. its in the manual.

then HV wire set on 4.0L,

if cops V8 , 4.7L try new boots on them. or swap them to find bad one.

the USA car V8 has coil on plugs





misfire means ONLY that this cylinder has weak COMBUSTION

its not weak spark only, that is only 1 cause of poor combustion.



post DTC\'s driving and we can fix it

the best tool is the

Innova 3160 scan tool, that is what I use on home cars.

it does all jeep codes, ALL.

i can drive , and scan and log DTCs.

and gather lots of facts on errors.

that is always the best way,

you can not fix cars today with out owning a scan tool.

unless , luckiest man on earth. (guessing)

How to tune up


go ahead, you have my permission ! LOL
what engine? v6 I4?
the v6, and all engines.
all new fluids. next?
new spark plugs.
if COP boots are bad , buy just the boots, ask for my Low $ source.
if the cops are bad, cry and buy them, not cheap. PO301,2,3,4 DTC?
new filters, 1 fuel , 1 air.
check brake pads, if stopping is a priority ? LOL (and for leaks,pulling, sponge or pedal drops.)

HI : I justfinished doing a tune up on my TOYOTA CAMRY 95 and when i turned it on it stared to shack and i looked everywhere and and every thing looked fine


Well it depends on what you done as a tune up ,but it sounds like you have the plug leads round the wrong way as the firing order only needs 1 wrong as on a 4 cylinder its 1342 and on a V6 its 153624 in that order OR if you dident check all plugs gaps for 28thou that could also be the problem.
SO buy a book and do the job 100% not 50%

I was quoted over $300 on a tune-up for my 2003 Escape. That seems like a lot. They explained it was because of the position of the plugs on the V6. Is this out of line and what have others charged/paid...


parts alone are about 125+ and labor between 65-75 an hour and the back 3 plugs are time consuming check other places 300 is about normal poible to find a little cheaper but not much

1995 toyota camry xle v6 3.0


When was the last time it was tuned up? Since you did not mention any "check Engine" light coming on, I assume that it is off. What I would do is check the plugs, replace them if worn, replace the plug wires if they are older than 5 years; check/replace the air filter. Not much else to do/check until you have the engine in a good state of tune; BTW, if you change the plugs, get the new ones at a Toyota dealer. I have a Camry V6, and when I put non-Toyota plugs in it, it ran worse. Toyota platinums made a 100% difference.
