Unless it's been converted to diesel or jet propulsion, yes you have spark plugs. :) 100k service interval, if I recall correctly.

If it has them, yes. Someone else with N* knowledge will have to chime in. Sometime around 2000 they were switched to coil on plug, eliminating wires.

If my mechanic told me that, I would run and get a new mechanic. I wouldn't let someone that has no idea about my engine work on it,let alone touch it..

2000+ Northstar. Here's what your coil-near-plug ignition system looks like. Replace the plug boots also. The AIR valve on the rear cam cover must be removed - the AIR valve exhaust pipe lower flange must be separated.

Maybe the mechanic said it had no spark plug "wires" and you heard it as no spark plugs? I find it hard to believe that anyone even masquerading as a mechanic with even the most rudimentary knowledge of an internal combustion engine could possibly say something like that with a straight face. If in fact he did, I would never even let him put air in my tire.
