Talking Hemi Tune Up

Have a 2011 Ram 1500 Hemi. Over 100,000 kms on it & believe I am due for a tune up. My question is:
How do you determine you need to replace coils?
What is the best place to purchase Tune Up Kits? (Plugs, wires, coils)

Summitracing.com, here in the states at least.
There are no wires, just the coils and spark plugs.
I have 143000 miles on my truck and the coils are going strong and I am not worried.
I just did the spark plugs, and once you get into it, its not bad.

RockAuto is the best place to get plugs for our trucks. By far the cheapest. I'd check them out and see if they can ship to you.

I second Rockauto.


You can set it to CDN $$ and it calculates shipping/taxes/duties once you put the items into the cart.

I've gotten parts from them before and including shipping, it was cheaper then buying retail here in Canada

Thanks everyone for all your suggestions. How do you test your coils to find out if they are OK? Is there a resistance test or some other way of verifying they are still good or need replacement?
