spark plugs?

Anybody know why the owners manual of a 2008 5.7 hemi ram 1500 says, to change the plugs at 30,000 miles and the mechanics i talked to say to wait until 100,000 miles?

because the mechanics your talking to have no clue what they are talking about. The hemi has copper plugs that need to be replaced every 30,000 miles.

Unless you have a good rapport with your mechanic, you may want to check out another shop.

That's right! And the respect of your fellow HTC members if you can do it using tools!
