Sitting at close to 80,000 miles, and along with changing my diff fluid, I decided to change my spark plugs as well. They look original and the part number is 41-981's

How do these plugs look?

They look fine. I would have just checked the gap, and then re-installed them....they're good for at least 100K.

Pretty easy, The 1st full rotation was a little tough, but after that I was able to get them out very easy. 2 3" extensions were all I need, and a smaller ratchet. Cylinder 6 was much easier then I was expecting

Replaced my plugs last week at about 96000. The tips on the old plugs were about gone and the gap was wide. Afterward she ran crappy. I assume the PCM compensated over the years. I disconnected the battery cable and cleaned the throttle body. Now she purrs like a kitten.:yes:
