    so i am a little past 100k and i was wondering what you fellas think should be done? i have a valve cover leak soo on my list...

    1. Vavle cover gasket
    2. Water pump (leaking)
    3. oil and fuilds
    4. grease drive shaft
    5. plugs (see below)
    6. Plug wires (NGK sound good?)
    7. Clutch is going so what would you guys recomend? marlin? I want something stronger than stock as i burnt that B**** out fast.
    8. Last thing what about new rotor and distributor ??? figure i should replace them while i am at it.

    Back to square one after the 2001. So...
    Just use the stock Denso plugs. Unless your engine is significantly modified, the Densos are cheaper and better than anything else. Most aftermarket plugs are just BS hype. You pay extra to support the creative-writing techno-babble snake oil, and then odds are even that they will either be no better than stock or start causing performance issues.

    To check all required maint. items for your specific truck, register here and enter your VIN:

    How did you "burn out the clutch fast?" The stock clutches will last 200k to 300k miles if driven properly.
