Well I finally got around to changing plugs. The old ones were Autolite and were replaced with Bosch Platinum 2 prong. It starts quicker, haven't taken it for a ride yet. I have to go tonight and get the oil changed. Too cold to change it my self yet. I was going to change the air filter to a K&N but none of the stores had them instock. So I'm going to borrow hubby's credit card and order one online. Also noticed it runs smoother since replacing the cracked ignition coil.

I'm running those same plugs and they do feel good. It takes a while for the computer to catch up, but I think you'll like 'em. thumbs

What do you mean by "a while for the computer to catch up? Just curious?

The ECM computer adjusts itself to the new plugs after a few hundred miles. You probably won't really notice it, or you might feel a hitch now and again. After that time period the computer will smooth out any engine roughness.

Like I said, you may not even notice it, so it's really nothing to worry about. thumbs

the computer system in your jeep does not have the ability to relearn itself anything.the computer sytem in your jeep can be flashed or reprogrammed with a drb scan tool or a chrysler msd at the dealer or with an obd2 scanner or equivalent.........sorry dude i didnt mean to steal your thunder but the vehicle relearning a set of spark plugs not only isnt possible its down right silly.
