    How often should you change your spark plugs, I have a 2000 honda Accord.
    I still have the orignal plugs in. The Honda Parts Dealer told me that you
    don't have to replace them till 100,000 miles. he also said that the
    Platinum Plugs are $17.00 each, Can anyone concur?

  2. With the new plug that they put in cars today they last a long time. I
    don't think 100,000 miles. $17.00 is a bit steep for any plug including
    Platinum. I say them selling for $5.00 around town and they are considered
    the best. Go to a local repair shop and have them installed when the time

  3. the plugs may last 110,000 but have you ever tried to remove plugs that have
    been in a car for over 80,000 miles. youll probably take the threads out of
    the head. Even with antisieze compound. they should be inspected at the least.

    Because Honda was putting platinum plugs in 91-95 Legends, and they said to
    replace them at 60k. The only reason they would suggest 105,00 is to keep
    up with the "100,000 mile tune-up" fad.

    Yeah the Platinum plugs are $17 at the Honda dealer. They are $3 at Wal
    Mart. The recommended change mileage is 100,000 miles.
