The spark plugs are good for a minumum of one hundred thousand miles. 100,000k
Cost is like $7.00 Each

..since I do a lot of driving, I do care about mpg and performance. how often should I be checking in on my spark plugs? I just hit 31k and the dealer's shop wanted to charge me $299 for an oil change (which is still under warranty and free) new spark plugs, new air filter, checking/filling all necessary fluids...oh, and rotating my tires.

I opt to do it all myself..but yes, back to my question. how often should I be checking?

thanks in advance!

Keep in mind this is for standard Caliber not CSRT4.
Well if the oil/filter change are free take that out of the pic.
In my neck of the woods tire rotation is $16.00,plugs std NGK type
are $3.99 ea and the airfilter is $24.00 from Mopar.So $56.00 for
parts plus labor and taxes.
$299.00 seems steep but if it's a CSRT4 I have seen similar quotes
posted.

i have a lil ol' 2007 R/T...I just hit 31K and drive about 3k/mi every month to month and a half. I just had the oil and filter changed a week ago. I'm pretty sure I can handle everything on my own, but might have someone else do the tire rotation, mainly because im usually very pressed on time.

but yeah, whats the avg life on spark plugs for someone that lives in stop n go traffic 24/7? LA sucks.

I can't talk about plug life on the Caliber as mine only has 32,000 km/20,000
miles and still runs fine,got 33.6 mpg US on my last long trip and usually
26-29 mpg US city.
My last car a '98 Dodge Caravan 3.3L still had the original Bosch
platinums when I sold it at 105,000 miles,I did clean them every
50,000 miles.

..I think I'll check mine tomorrow at my shop class then. While I'm at it, I may as well just lift my car and rotate the tires too. fun fun ^_^

Re: 2007 Dodge Caliber spark plugs?

Seems like I remember reading somewhere recently that 30K was the recommended mileage for standard plugs. Hope that helps.
