Thumbs up

Trident,

The Bosch Platinum Plugs have been in our 06 Burb for 52000mi+.

What is important, (you've already learned?). Is to remove them every 10k or so, wire brush the threads, wipe with Brakleen and coat the inside of the boots with dielectric grease. Its not unusual for todays quality plugs to last 5yrs or more. BUT, when it is time to replace, it helps if you can get them out.

Handy to have in the traveling tool kit...




Bob

Thanks to advice like yours and others we will be better prepared next time out. Dielectric grease is on the way I think the little packet that came with the wire set must have been supper glue!
Thanks
