Let the dealer install the plugs, but only if you have confidence that they wont crack the insulator(s) on the new plugs installing them. If it starts to skip/misfire, they likely cracked one or two or more of the new plugs. I`ve seen dealerships even break the coil packs/broken connectors. Most dealer monkey`s are just that, monkeys, ram an slam, break ****, and they dont give a rats azz. Always remember, today its all about greed... quanity before quality is the way it is today. Nobody is going to care for your vehicle more than you do.
Before you change the plugs....
Add a full bottle of GUMOUT (high concentrated formula) fuel injection cleaner to a full tank of gas.
Run the tank down to almost empty. Then go change the plugs.
Dealer wants to remove the throttle body to clean it...??? No, absolutely not...!
You can do this yourself before the plug change... one spray can of GUMOUT carb/fuel injection cleaner.
Pull the air intake tube off, spray entire inside, done. I`ve found that most dont need it though.
If you install a oil trap can within the PCV and the TB, that stops alot of oil being sucked down the intake.
Also a GOOD quality air filter keeps the TB & intake track clean as well.
