    Spark plugs... pictures of old and new, Normal?

    how WET are your spark plugs usually?

    jsut changed out my original spark plugs with new ones... first time cahgning them on the RXT... it has 40 hours, i know i shoulda done it at 10 hours prob... oh well.

    anyways... i used to cahnge my spark plugs on my 03 4-tec as well... but on the RXT the plugs were pretty wet... like touching them left alot of fluid on my finger that was dripping off.... resting them on the mats the old spark plugs left a few drip marks....

    i don't know how to look at a spark plug and give a diagnosis... i'm learning tho. here's a picture... let me know what you think.

    Old spark plug with new spark plug.... (i know i had to remove the cap on the end of the new one, don't worry.

    Your old plugs look good to me.

    By the way, you don't need to change your plugs at 10 hours. I changed my first set at 80 hours

    Shibby,

    Hang on to the old ones as spares... I can't see a thing wrong with them.

    You definately dont want it hanging on by one thread. Super dangerous!!! Adjust the linkage from under the steering column. I've never done it so figure it out and let us know how its done
