ok - i figured the forum would be the best place to ask this... bc the Rocket Scientists at a handful of dealers seem dumbfounded, maybe just DUMB.
I have a 2012 soul base my wife bought... it has 62K on the odo and I want to do a lil tuneup... the dealer wants close to 4billion dollars to do a simple spark plug swap.
Being I have built full race motors in the past I'm not uusally one to shy away from such a simple DIY item such as spark plugs lol.
here is my problem... When I goto auto parts stores, they keep trying to give me iridium plugs, from my understanding these are 2.0 plugs and my 1.6 comes with crap Chapmion rer8mc copper plugs.
The dealer says I am not scheduled to get plugs till 100K bc I have these iridium plugs... so here is my confusion.
Why do some people say ALL SOULS use iridium plugs, some say 1.6 is the Champion rer8mc copper crap plugs ***which I personally would replace every other oil change lol
Some people are trying to tell me that the 1.6 came stock with these champion plugs... and that the dealer is since swapping them out for iriduims.
CAN ANYONE WEIGH IN... I have literally been working on this debate on and off since 50K and have definitely seen a performance decrease since.
Dealer looks up my vin and says 17-20$ per plug... Auto parts stores... blah, idiots.... and lastly online. 7$ for the rer8mc champions.
At this point I'm ready to pull one out and see what the deal is in there... CHOICE A OR B!
Thanks so much
