I bought the mustang because my sister works for a dealership and I got it for a steal

Welcome! I just changed out my spark plugs for the first time on Saturday with 85K on the car. I used PB blaster and had the motor at running temperature. The whole job took me 45minutes and all 8 came out, switch out the plugs now but read up on how to do it and have the lisle tool close by.

Great job! As I posted before...running temp is the key to safe removal!

+ 1 on the man card! economy = Prius Fun= Mustang and pretty good mileage...as I tell people when they ask what mileage I get with my GT500...I say good enough to get to the next gas station under full boost!
