    I would like to put in the iridium plugs in my 2007 PreRunner. How hard is it to put plugs in? I have not had a Toyota to put plugs into since I had a 91 Toyota pickup. I read some guys have no problems and others alot. Thanks in advance .....Rich

    One peice of advise do not over torque your new plugs or they will strip out the threads in the alum heads.

    So what is the proper torque (ft-lbs.) for spark plaugs in the 4.0L V6?

    Why are you constantly asking for rep?

    You remind of the 15 year old girls on myspace constantly trying to get everybody to add them.

    I want to apologize to everybody, especially humanoid. I was out of line, and I regret being so harsh. I should have presented my case in a much less offensive manner. I'm sorry.:eek:

    If you guys accept my apology, then gimme some rep :D

    Sorry, had to throw that in there LOL

    Not much. Toyota bed mat, Toyota step bars, tinted windows, Toyota seat covers, Toyota all-weather mats, quart of Wild Turkey in the glove box, KelTec PT3AT in the center console, backseat full of old speeding tickets
    Not sure, but the plug torque on my Honda bike (aluminum heads) is 12ft-lbs. I use my calibrated wrist though....it ain't let me down in.....many years
