    Hey everyone,
    I have been reading alot finding next to no verbal or visual help on replacing the 3rd gen tacoma spark plugs.

    • Has anyone done this yet?
    • What is the replacement interval? 30k miles? 60K miles?
    • Did you use OEM plugs? If not, which ones did you use?
    • Average time for replacement? Was it difficult?

    In short index is when the open part of the electrode is facing the intake valve. Plenty of videos on youtube...search “how to index spark plugs” you’ll be amazed
