I go over the basics of changing out spark plugs. It's a simple and
straight forward job you can do yourself!
*Note, some vehicles require more dis-assembly before the spark plugs can
be accessed (transversely mounted V6/V8 motors) consult a service manual
before starting the job.
Products used: NGK Iridium spark plugs & Lubro Moly anti-seize compound.

Leak down testing
I get a lot of questions via email and over at the forum about the steps to
take when you encounter a performance issue like my Subaru's hesitation
issue and I often feel like I sound like a broken record when I cover the
basic steps that I cover when encountering a situation like that. My main
point here is that if you have a performance problem and you're going to
throw parts at the problem start with the basics before you to off and
start replacing sensors that you suspect are a problem, if you don't have
evidence of a faulty sensor then don't start there start with the simple
tune up items and check for vacuum leaks and air leaks as I've shown here
and I believe you'll have better results and save yourself some money in
the process. In short the rule of KISS applies, Keep It Simple Stupid.
If you have questions about your own engine performance issues head over to
my website and either ask the search function or ask the forum, we'd be
happy to help.

How to rule out a Spark Plug as your problem
A very simple but highly effective method which I have always used to
confirm if a spark plug is/is not the cause of engine starting and/or
performance problems. Why run to the store and buy a new spark plug as a
gamble, which may not be inexpensive, when you can verify if the plug is
the problem using your digital multimeter. Save time and money!
I decided to upload this video when I discovered that not too many people
knew about this simple spark plug test.

When to Change Spark Plugs In Car?
When to change spark plugs in my car? Do you know how you can tell if the
spark plugs or spark plugs wires have ever been changed before? Maybe you
just bought a used car and are unsure if the tune up parts have been
changed, or maybe you just forgot when you had a tune up...if ever. Watch
this video to learn a few good tips
As my general rule of thumb, I like to change spark plugs (on vehicles from
2005 with platinum tip spark plugs) between 80,000-100,000 miles unless
there is a problem and a spark plug fails or there is an engine missfire
If you have conventional spark plug wires, then I would recommend you
change them at 80,000 miles and replace the spark plugs at that time as
well. Most spark plug wires fail/break down under extreme load like
pulling a boat or trailer or they just overheat because they are laying on
or too close to the hot engine parts which melts them.
To answer the question about when to change the spark plugs, click the link
at the top of this description to see what I recommend.

Engine Miss - Simple Way To Diagnose Bad Spark Plug Wires
http://www.trustmymechanic.com/auto-repair Visit My Website For More Free
Does your vehicle seem to have an engine miss, run bad or is the check
engine light coming on?
This is a SUPER simple shade tree mechanic to help determine if you have an
electrical miss fire like from a bad spark plug wire or a bad ignition
Engine running, one foot FIRMLY on the brake, place into park and give it
some gas. Don't OVER stress the engine for too long, the transmission will
not like that.
In this example, I brought the RPM up to about 1800 to simulate highway
speeds, then let off for a few seconds then brought the RPM back up again.
If the engine starts to buck, stumble or missfire you could have a ignition
related problem like a spark plug wire or ignition coil.
if the engine bogs down and looses power you probably have a lack of fuel
pressure or fuel volume problem with the fuel pump.
Hope this helps you determine the problem you might be having.

Why Not To Buy A Mercedes
Scotty Kilmer, mechanic for the last 47 years, shows why it may not be a
smart idea to purchase a mercedes,especially a used one. The high cost of
repair combined with insane over engineering often tends to empty your
pockets of cash faster than you
can fill them back up. And, If you like my car help, be sure to watch my

Spark Plug Replacement: How often should I change my spark plugs?
Most manufacturers recommend changing spark plugs every 30,000 miles, but
this can depend on your type of vehicle and type of spark plug used. Please
refer to your car's user manual for specific replacement intervals. A good
spark plug will keep your car's engine healthy! So change your spark plugs
at the recommended service intervals. Knowing how to change spark plugs in
a car is an essential part of keeping the vehicle's engine running well.
