I have an 04 Ram 1500 5.7 HEMI 4doors 4WD and I would like to replace my spark plugs. My friend told me I had 16 plugs?? Is it true?? Which spark plugs would you recommend??? If you have a part# for me that would be much appreciated!!

this wasnt my first time changing a set of spark plugs i have changed alot .... first time for the hemi and yes it took about hour .... im 6'2 so reaching the plugs was easy the coil packs bolts came out it about two seconds had an electric racket i used on them ... and the plugs wasnt that hard to reach .... when i start something i like getting it done so i dont jack around
I cheated too. I had one of my kids friends crawl up inside the engine compartment and change the back 2 on the passenger side. He's 5'2" and all of 120lbs. I'm 5'10" and 280 lbs. That was the best $10 I ever spent. LOL
Sorry, I just changed most (see new thread) of mine and I gotta agree with calling "BS" on changing them all in an hour. First time or not, it simply takes longer than that to get to everything, especially if you torque it all back up, use the plug goop and anti-sieze like you are supposed to.
To the OP: I just used the same exact plug make and model that came in the truck. And if you are going to do it yourself, expect it to take a while and be a major pain in the ***.
