    I'm assuming that after replacing the spark plugs on my '05 Tacoma Prerunner V6, that they will self adjust for timing, or am I wrong?

    Thanks

    The computer does adjust certain parameters of air/fuel as well as other systems bases upon the information it is reading from said systems. The computer will 'learn' that you have new plugs on its own, or you can reset the comp by disconnecting the battery...really should disconnect it while working on the plugs anyway.

    Make sure you gap your plugs properly too

    No timing just maf/fuel system will self adjust after a few runs or disconnect battery as already stated. Clean the throttle body valve if you haven't yet on a 2005, will make a whole lot of difference.
