    Please tell me you aren't going to try to change your own plugs when you don't even know where they are.

    Hi, Nate. There are even some really helpful members on this site with wonderful senses of humor who do a lot of goofing around and messing with each other. Don't take them too seriously.

    Welcome to the site, and good luck.

    And if you are actually nd trolling, we will show no mercy. And if you aren't nd and don't know what that means, don't worry about it.

    This is the perfect example of how searching before posting can not only save everyone's time, but also save you some embarrassment.

    And that being said, there are always folks who are new to a forum, and not aware of its features. To add, changing the plugs on a modern coil on plug engine can be very different from....say.....an mid 80's engine with a distributer. ;)

    All kidding aside, OP, it sounds like you are not very familiar with the various parts of a gasoline engine. I therefore would recommend you do not perform this maintenance yourself. Perhaps you could find a member in your area who would be willing to help. I know I'm always available to help local members for a small fee (beer). :)

    Probably the best advice in the whole thread; maybe the whole forum. While doing your own maintence can save you alot of money - it can cost you HUGE money if you screw it up! Having someone to help you the first time or two can really save time/money by preventing an easy/common mistake.
