Changing Spark plugs and PCV - 2000 4.7
Hi - bought a used 2000 Durango 4.7 V8 4x4 a couple of months ago. Love the truck so far. I want to do some preventive maintenance on the vehicle. Already changed air filter and oil (oil was a little interesting). I also want to do:
1. Spark plugs. I noticed that this model/engine does not have spark plug wires, but it has what the dealership calls "spark packs" that sit on top of each plug. I grew up with an older '90 Mustang V8 with the older school distributor, wires, cap, etc... I'm not used to this idea of electronic spark pack. How hard is it to remove each spark pack to get access to the plug? Any special tips or things to look out for or is it straight forward? By the way, the dealership does recommend copper based plugs.
2. PCV valve. It's located right off the oil filler cap. Yesterday I noticed it will be a little interesting to get to. There's the 2 metal A/C lines right over the PVC valve attached to the oil filler neck. Any special tricks or hints?
Next month it will be the O2 sensors. Thanks-
