    In my 4 banger, I know it came with the iridium spark plugs.

    Are they really good for 100k miles? Or are you guys changing them out sooner?

    Thanks~

    manual says they are good for 100,000. Personally, It cant hurt to pull them and check the gap at 50,000.

    When I bought my truck I looked for the plugs. I's been a while but I remember it looked like it was going to be a real pain in the butt to get at them.

    My 2002 Accord had 100,000 mile plugs in it, but I changed them at 60,000 and it felt like the car gained 10 hp. I plan on changing the plugs in my 2.7 at 50-60,000, but thats years away.

    I replaced the plugs in my '01 Civic at 60k and noticed it.

    I plan on pulling the ones in my 2.7 at 60k as well. Looks like you have to pull the secondary filter box to get at them.
