    Overhead Compass/Temp display not working

    Spark plug time

    I really need to change the plugs on the 4.6 Triton. From my online research of this job, it is a chore (and a half!) And it's an expensive job to get the dealership to do from what people have posted. Any advice is much appreciated!! Or should I do myself a favour and just bring it in...
