Spark Plug Change - 30K mile service


Recommended Posts

I just completed the 30K mile service on my car yesterday, belt, spark plugs, brake bleed (from track event), clutch bleed, and added radiator debris cleaning for good measure as a winter to-do.

Since I was doing so much, I got the car up on jacks, remove all wheels. Also decided to remove rear bumper cover, heat shields, and mufflers including the muffler mounting bracket. In all it added about 30 mins as my Dad was helping out.

I have replaced plugs in my other 996 before with just the rear wheels removed. And I wanted to tell you that replacing the plugs with all the other parts removed was a world of difference. Lots of room to get to the bolts and remove the plugs. For the small added time, I would STRONGLY recommend it as you could spend a lot less time in the long run struggling and cursing. I know, I still remember.

When you removed the muffler, was there a gasket you had to replace? Did you notice any exhaust leaks?
