Hello good people!

Please humor me here as I am just placing this to record my efforts on changing spark plugs. Since today's spark plugs last upwards to 80,000 - 100,000 miles then, this little job of replacing them are overlooked in all accounts, even though Spark Plugs are perhaps the most important part of your vehicle's ignition system.

My main goal is to show you a few tips about Spark Plugs and how they are very important to your Vehicle's Ignition System. My daughter's 2008 Avenger SE just surpassed 84,000+ original miles and decided to replace the spark plugs. It was just an extremely daunting task to figure out which brand, type of Spark Plug to get as there is just a great amount of selections. To play it safe I decided to go at the Parts Counter over at my local Dodge Dealer and they recommended a Nickel Spark Plug, V-grove and good for 40,000 miles. Why? Because the Avenger is not driven so much and is a pleasure car. The important thing to note is the Heat Classification and in this situation the selection was for a 5 heat rating, the factory recommended.
