    I recently purchased a 2001 Tacoma SR-5 V-6 TRD 4 x 4 and I need to replace the T-Belt, waterpump & probably spark plugs. I was wondering if some of the more seasoned Forum members could provide me with a 1-800 number or link to cheaper Toyota OEM parts. That brings me to another maintenance question, do I really need NGK Spark Plugs with 2 Pronge Electrodes or can I use Autolite Double Platinums?

    I have owned a couple of Nissan's over the years and I found Power Nissan in AZ. (800 237-0003) has real good pricing.

    Thanks in Advance

    trdparts4u.com has some of the lowest prices hands down.
    As for the plugs, yes, it's highly recommended, if not, your rig will run like crap and stick with Denso or NGK plugs too, any other plugs and you'll be sorry you bought those Autolite or Champion plugs for $2 each.

    She's gone but not forgotten.
    Stay away from Bosch plugs. 48 dollar mistake I found the hard way.

    Yeah, I was eyeing those Bosch plugs as well, thanks for the advice.

    Their online prices for toyota parts sometimes are much much better than dealer costs. That's where I used to buy my parts.

    Shop around to various places for the best price.

    When I owned my 96 I bought bosch plugs. I can't remember exactly why (was many many years ago), but for some reason I returned them and bought OEM plugs. ??
