AC Delco is the only choice if you want them to last. Well worth the $12/plug (although I got mine for $9, but that was a bit ago) But I gained nearly 3mpg and it runs oh so much smoother.

One more time. A/C Delco. I think 2000+ uses 41-987's. $12 a piece is highway robbery.

This question should not be asked, almost every page of this forum has a similar post.

My mechanic tried to shove NGK up my ... in several occasions. He does lots or Honda, Toyota, Pontiac, VW, Chrysler, and ONE Cadillac. The repairs in my case are "replace that, that and that with this that and that", I make the decisions and take no advice.
Well actually spark plugs I will be shamed to ask a mechanic to change for me…is fairly easy as long as you know the threads in those heads are aluminum.
I learned one trick from an old Citroen boxer engine with aluminum heads, use a fairly stiff hose slightly longer than the sprk plug well and just thick enough to hold the end of the spark plug. When screwing the plugs into the block use the hose as a wrench then when the hose will slip (end of the thread) use a torque wrench. This way you will never have enough torque to cross thread the spark plug using the hose.

:confused: Most of your posts are alphabet soup. Perfect spelling and grammar are not expected here but if you spend a little more time on these your posts will be much easier on the eyes. Make use of the spell check tool available in the post staging editor.

Funny like weird, not funny like ha-ha.......but my Olds 455's absolutely love NGK Iridium plugs, while Northstars hate them - poor performance and nagging missing.

i have never changed the plugs on my own before in any cars and i wish i had someone who lived closer by to me that should show me how to do it my one problem is
i don't want to dig in and do things and screw it up I'm scared that i might really screw up the engine or do something really bad to make the car not good the first time i do something to anything i like to be able to see someone do it and then i can do it myself after for the next time

if anyone knows anyone who live with in a 1 or 2 hour area from cleveland that might want to make a little cash on the side and help me so i can see WHO its Deon and learn to do it
let me know

I'm just scared ill dig into it the first time and screw it up
and then if i do screw it up and have to take it to a shop the shops around here ass asses try and bs with with you and charge you even more for screwing up what they have to fix LOL

Thanks

Trust me a plug change is a walk in the park on these cars. Im sure there is a write up on here with some pictures. If you take your time you can do this job yourself. All you need is a few sockets, an extension, and a torque wrench. Very very easy.

Don't even need a torque wrench.
