    I've yanked my plugs before... It is pretty easy just make sure you use NGK brand

    Edit: My car is a 2.5 RS though....

    It took Zoombaru and I two hours to do mine, but that was with letting the car cool down, so if your engine isn't hot, give or take about an hour and 15 mintues.

    spark plugs...

    After doing it twice in two weeks... I recommend:

    a. let the car cool down or wear gloves

    b. USE NGKs!!! (I decided to try and go with autolite and my car was UNHAPPY

    c. don't forget to plug the MAF back it.

    d. take the battery out also

    I used a flex head ratchet, 5/8 spark plug socket, and a 3 inch locking extension. plus a 12mm socket to get the coils off each plug. I couldn't have really used anything else. the scoobymods directions have you using almost every tool in the shed, and I got 'em out, but didn't use 'em.

    This isn't to big a deal, just a pain to take out wper fluid res, battery, and airbox... especially when the engine isn't cool...

    My spark plugs are easy, no battery under the hood and the filter sit on top of the throttle body. I remove 2 screws for the washer resevoir and I'm ready. hehe, other than that everything on that list has been done more than once except the fuel filter and coolant. I could afford to do a few of those items soon though, I've got 52,000 on the clock. Haven't done a compression test, but I did a leakdown test on Thursday: 9% on three of the 4 cylinders, and 15% on the other. Compression test I would imagine is good as well.

    Thanks!

    I started doing mine. I changed the rad hoses as my top one was bloated and split inside. my coolent was nasty with floating things in it. I checked the suspention parts and all looked but but there is some heavy wear to the end links so I think I will replace them. I think I will have the trans and diff serviced as I am to lazy to go that far. even though I know the fluids look good. my timming belt was recently looked at so I am not going to sweat that. belts looks good. just did oil change. brake fluid flush (suggested) was looking nasty with crap in it. I still have yet to change the spark plugs. wanted more opinions on them. was looking at NGK iridium ix. any thoughts? I looked over my brake pads but looked good. So at this point am I missing anything? besides air filter.
