Default Just changed my plugs/wires.

I'm really trying to get into working on cars/trucks more, and I've been slowly learning from friends and doing some stuff on my own.

Well, I changed my plugs and wires...and the best part IT. STARTED.

I'm proud of myself, lol. It definitely idles smoother. = D

Try changing timing belt, waterpump, front crank seal, rear pinion seal, etc for the first time LOL. Tanks goodness for people like Luke and Justin Higgs that don't mind helping someone out halfway across the country
