    Today I changed out my spark plugs and serpentine belt on my 2012 Tacoma 2.7L 4x4 5-speed MT SR5 (98,382 mi). Both spark plugs and serpentine belt were original. Original plugs were starting to look a little ragged and gap was easily over .045! Coils looked great. Serpentine belt was really a waste of time and money I believe since it looked great once I took it off. Piece of mind I guess since I travel to secluded hunting areas away from home in winter time.

    I used Denso Part No. 3421 (SK20HR11) spark plugs & a Bando serpentine belt. Both purchased through NAPA online. I would like to thank the authors of the stickies above for the guidance on changing out these parts. I was completed in under 2hrs (and I took my time) for both items. So thanks to the 4 cylinder forums!

    The coils should last a long time. I have 223,000 on my coils. The Lazer Iridium plugs are a 100,000 mile replacement, the regular Iridium are 50,000. The belts harden with age so 100,000 miles is a good time to change them.
