Thanks buddy, what's the proper tool used to change the spark plugs on an 02 ram?
It's a special deep socket with a rubber insert so you don't snap the ceramic on the plug.

You can pick up spark plug tool kits at your local hardware store, if not build your own kit with the following:

Spark Plug Sockets (5/8", 3/4", 13/16")
3/8" Drive Ratchet
4" Extension
6" Extension
3/8" Drive Universal Joint
Nose Picker*

* I don't know what these are normally called, but these are so handy to have around. Remerson knows what I'm talking about. It's a long, flexible tube around 80cm long with a prong at one end for you to pick up stuff from tight spaces you can't normally reach.

My uncle said it's good to use one of those that have magnets so I won't drop the sprak plug...

I still haven't changed them, because of the holidays getting in the way but this weekend I plan to get it done!
