Does the dealership change spark plugs for the 60k service?! I'll have to find my service sheet from when I had it done a while ago. If not then I definitely need to get new plugs. I hit 72k the other day
I wouldn't recommend working on a hot engine...... there's very few times when that's a good idea... If you have a socket set just use the spark plug socket and they'll come right out, they're not in THAT tightWill the plugs be easier to loosen if the engine is hot vs. cold?
FYI there are owner's manuals available for download on this site to do research like this...also, page 1 of this thread lists the NGK p/n's for the 04-05 models (ITR6F13) and 06-09 models (ILTR5A13G). Looking at the owner's manual for a 2010 yields Mazda p/n L3Y2 18 110 which crosses to NGK ILTR5A13G.Can anyone tell me the stock parts numbers for the first generation and second generation's spark plugs for the 2.0 engine?
Feeling pretty stupid at the moment. Thanks to this great how-to, I've got 3 plugs replaced, but the 4th (nearest passenger side) has a plastic clamp over the coil pack bolt, and I can't figure out how to get the dang thing off. Picture attached.
