Read these plugs for me

Changed plugs today, i tookout the NGK’s and put champions back in. The plugs i took out had about 22,000 miles on them. Never saw any with a red color to them. All 16 plugs looked the same.

Yeah truck wouldn’t start acted like water in fuel (14 degree temps) , truck cranked for a long time before starting so the plugs had a lot of fuel on them. I think the red might be from fuel additives.

How many miles are on the engine? And are you by chance running a custom engine tune?

Unfortunately it looks like to me you have some valve seals leaking... And this is an 03 correct? If I were you I would remove the 87 octane fuel tune and use the fuel mileage tune instead... Good luck!

The gap looks a little wide. Should be .044".. might replace the PCV. It could allow a oil to enter the manifold. Have you replaced the spark plug wires?
