I have an 01 and It's almost time for a time up, I drive at 35 miles one way to school everyday and have put 12,000 miles on the car since may. My instructor said It wouldnt be a bad idea to step the heat range down one step but I don't know what plug I have and what plug I should get, I'd ask him but I want to know now so I can buy the plug haha I got to an automotive school so I'm sure my instructor is giving me the right advice,

honestly just go to any autoparts store and tell them your car...grab some autolites and go take the 15 minutes needed to install them. btw hardest ones will be passenger side...pop off the intake tube to make that easier and have a wobble socket

Yeah I'll just do that then, I'll ask them what the stock is and ask for one heat range colder

Ask what his reasoning for one heat range colder I'm curious to know. I know a good amount about engines but not much about spark plugs surprisingly...

Since I drive my car soooo much and always on the freeway, the colder plug won't get as hot as the normal plug and will run more efficiently and last longer with the type of driving I do, which is about 3500 miles a month

Use copper plugs & compare stock temp range performance against the colder ones if you would. Gap it correctly too, I imagine changing to a colder plug will also in-tell gaping it differently.
