How to change spark plugs in a 2000 Ford Expedition

This is one of the longest repairs I have ever done on just changing spark plugs! A dealership will charge you $200 and up for this job. They take between 2-4 hours labor!

Here is a great guide in AutumnsList forums with great detail to help everyone out. It also has a lot of great tips so you do it right.

I believe it is the same for earlier and later models too. Maybe from 1998 to 2003 models.

what is cost to replace valve cover gasket on 2002 dodge neon?

To replace the valve cover gasket shouldn't be that expensive. Although those cars are known for blown head gaskets, so I would have them look carefully at the back of the engine for an oil leak. If it is leaking oil out of the head, it is only a matter of time before the head gasket will be pushing anti-freeze. Please rate my answer so I get points for it.

what`s the cost of a oil change and a tune up and brake job each one seperate please

This is a very tough question. It will completely depend on where you take the car, what all you have done in the tune up, and what kind of parts are used. For an example. You can buy oil for $.99 a quart for cheap motor oil all the way up to $16. a quart on the oil change. Then on the tune up. Spark plugs, wires, transmission fluid and filter, greasing front end, changing differential oil, etc. That is going to depend on what parts you use also and how much you want to have done. And the same with a brake job. You can buy cheap pads for $30 or top of the line one's for around $200. So it is going to depend on what exactly you want done and how much you want to spend. Also where you take the car also. A dealership is going to be at least 15-20% higher than somewhere like Pep-Boys.

how much is the cost to chang spark plugs on a 2002 Mitsubishi Montero sport? thanks

depending on what engine you have, the labor is 1.6 for the 3.0 v6 and 2.2 for the 3.5 v6. assume most shops charge $90 a hour for labor plus tax you're lookig at between 170 and 200 just for labor then plugs from mitsubishi are $13.73 retail, but aftermarket platinum plugs are a lot less, like $8 each. so depending on what plugs between 35 and 85. so unless you are wanting to do it yourself you are looking at between 200-250 for the 3.0 v6 or 230-290 for the 3.5 v6. if you are local i woudl do the job for way less : )
