Default Ram 2004 HEMI spark plugs

Hi,

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!!

Thanks!!

Max

Yes you have 16. Get the NGK or Champion copper plugs. Do a search for spark plugs and you will find a lot of reading that will answer all of your questions.

a hour? It took that long just to open up all 16 plug cartons LOL! You either had help, were in a big hurry, or really lucky lol.

Getting some of those coil pack bolts back in was probably the hardest part in my opinion. Also, if you are short or have small arms, good luck or find something to stand on.


16 Champion coppers, the stock number is 570. The plug number is RE14MCC4, and the gap is .045. Get some grease for the boots and put antisieze on the threads of the plugs.

Like the others have said, stick with the champions.

I wish I could do my plug change in an hour. That is the fastest that I have ever heard of someone doing all 16 plugs on their own.

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 Click the image to open in full size.
