I was wondering if anyone has a write up or any tips on the replacement procedure? I have concluded from reading a number of posts on various forums that most seem to change out at 75k to maintain "good" performance.
Thanks Mike...hard to adjust back to "real life" again after a great vacation, but nice to see everything here still rolling smoothly. Tip above is right on target, the challenge I had was mostly on getting the spark plug cover back into the hole, as the plugs themselves are easy to get to...helps to have some sticky tape on the socket itself to "lift" the plug out of the deep hole as well.gooseyloosey said:Paul, welcome back!
Ditto on the F and R diff fluid--get that from the dealer. Its only like $8/qt. You'll want access to a lift for that though. I had my local shop do it and took him the instructions posted on here. There's a link on here for the procedure--just do a search.
On those pesky back plugs, a trick I learned once was if you need to use a u-joint on the socket extension, wrap the u-joint with a layer of electrical tape, its just enough so its not flopping around on you, and you can locate the plug hole easier.

Alldata specs show the GAP at 1.0 mm (0.039 in). So does that make a big diff than what was mentioned above of .045. Is it even necessary to adjust the Gap on these platinum plugs?
