Replaced the plugs in my truck

I replaced the plugs when I bought the truck about 4 years ago, and have put on 100k km on the truck since then, and decided to replace the plugs and plug wires.


The plugs themselves look like they still would be fine to use for another couple of years at least, but after examining the plug wires, 4 of them had the outer sheath split right where it enters the spark plug connector, so it likely was a good time to replace them.

I did notice that one of the end plugs had a blob of soot on it and the outside of the plug was discolored from an exhaust leak, and it turned out one of the clamps I put on to hold down the exhaust manifold to the head (broken off bolt in the head), the clamping bolt had loosened, so I tightened it down, and like magic, the ticking I heard disappeared. On Monday, I'll get a 10mm nut and put it on as a jam nut to prevent this from happening again.

Porcelain on the tips looks pretty good the tips might be worn a bit did you throw a feeler on them just to see?

They're between .045 and .050, so slightly worn.


I put in Denso #4713 plugs and ACDelco 9748HH plug wires.
