    Question100,000+ questions

    Just purchased a 98 Concours that has hit 102776. I was just wondering what the deal the the head bolts pulling at 100,000+ miles is it normal for the head bolts to pull at that mileage or is a certain year of the North*. The car has been WELL maintianed, coolant flushes and all. I just got around to changing the plugs and the wires today. I noticed how ever that the plugs said PACKARD on them, is the OEM manufacture for the plug wires? I thought they would say delco or something like that on them.

    Packards are original wires.
    I guess mileage and maintenance don't matter to much when it comes to headbolts. Mine pulled at 60000. Luckily, the warranty covered it.

    It can be delayed by good maintenance, but mostly at some point in time they will pull..... It may be low (like 60k), or it might be 150k...... I guess it depends on the luck of the draw!!!!
