Havent got the coils yet. Just looking at most the SSEi'* in the club, some have had new coil packs added, but being an 02, aside from the look and little bit of gain on the system, I just dont see a big enough difference to justify new packs....yet

Changed the plugs on my '01 Jeep Wrangler the other day, easiest job I've ever done. About 10 min start to finish. I love that inline 6

Having seen the plug location when Toasty was going to swap his rear mani... UGGGGLY

Chad.. I understand what you are going through.. hell..if Melissa thinks she can..let her have at it . I think Randman ended up doing the plugs from under the car.

I did mine, but I might have a shop do hers. Not to wuss out, but I tried to get one of hers out last night, but I couldnt do it with a socket, extension and ratchet. I didnt want to resort to a breakerbar and break the plug, cause the way the plugs look, I'd say they are atleast a year if not more old cause her car is studdering and a strain is put on the system when she uses stuff causing the engine to slow down sometimes.

Let'* analyze this.. the plugs will need to be done sooner or later if you are having the problems he mentioned.

And the part about him not picking you up... hmmm are you stalking the poor guy?
