Default Two of these are not like the others...

Changed out my spark plugs a couple days ago, and this is what I found:



Two original plugs still in there at 120,000 miles.

Gee, thanks shop that I took it to for them to be changed at 60,000 ago for doing your job!

2 Motorcraft plugs were the ones towards the rear of the engine, under the intake.

I've already been compensated by this company stemming from other repairs they did to the brakes (Had to bring it back 4 times for them to finally get it right. One time because the bottom caliper bolt came out while I was on the highway.)

Still am going to give them hell about this though.

And yes, OTJ...
