  2. Spark Plug Change - what's your read?

    LD RAM - General Discussion
    Well, I did a spark plug change today on my "new-to-me" Big Horn. I'm trying to go through everything and "reset" the maintenance schedule since I don't know what was done previously. I took it in few weeks ago to get the PCM flashed, as I was getting the typical vibration with the MDS, and...
  3. Not replacing spark plugs in time

    2012 Dodge Ram Forum
    I have over 65,000 kilometres on my HEMI. Dealer is trying to convince me to change the plugs for over $400. I did find an independent shop willing to do it for $295. I think it's still too expensive for a basic spark plug change and didn't expect to be doing this before 100,000 kilometres...

  13. Spark Plugs and Wires??

    Performance Mods - Engine - 5.9 Liter V8
    I have a 1984 Power Ram. I'm going to replace the plugs and probably the wires. So the question, is what plugs do the best in a 5.9L out of my 84? Also, would it be worth upgrading the wires to an 8mm or bigger? It's pretty much stock as far as I know. Love some help!

    Decided it was time to get under the hood of the Hemi, change the oil and the spark plugs, I have been putting changing the plugs for the last 2 oil changes. After changing the oil, I began tearing into the engine, I pulled the air filter and the intake resonator gaining better access to the...

    Dodge Ram Warranty Issues
    I was looking through my manual and read that the government forces Chrysler to warranty the spark plugs for 5 yrs or 50k miles, whichever comes first. If this is the case, why do they recommend changing them every 30? I have 40k on my truck and the plugs look pretty good. Should these be...
