    Nice video, Does changing your own spark plugs void any warranties?

    Not sure why it would, just as changing your own oil, filters, or anything else is just standard routine maintenance.

    I sure do miss the old days when you didn't have to dismantle half the engine just to get to the plugs...

    I would wash the engine, so no debris falls into the cyclinders.
