The interval varies depending on your vehicle’s make and model. A vehicle equipped with the newer platinum-tipped plugs can go as far as 100,000 miles before plugs require replacement. Replacing your own is relatively easy, as you’ll see from the instructions listed below.

The first thing you’ll want to do is gather all the tools you’ll need. Of course, you’ll start with a set of new one.

Never change your plugs without the engine being cold. Wait two hours after driving to let wrench pump cool off. Grasp the wire by the boot, give the wire a twist and cautiously pull the spark plug wire out of the end. Don’t pull the wires themselves or you may damage them. TIP: changing the plugs one helps avoid mixing up the spark plug wires.

Remove by turning Torque wrench pump counterclockwise with a socket and ratchet. Spark sockets have rubber linings that prevent damaging the plug’s ceramic case. Crack it loose, spin it out until it’s off the threads, and take it out by hand.

OK, time to set the gap of the new plug with a gap gauge (Remember the proper gap is specified on the engine specs decal underside of the hood). You can buy a gap gauge at your auto parts store. Slide the correct thickness wire or feeler between the inner and outer electrodes at the tip of the plug. The feeler will slide between the electrodes with a slight drag when the plugs are properly gapped. If the gap isn’t right, slightly bend the outer electrode until you achieve the right gap. Ensure the outer electrode is inline over the inner electrode.
