Ive got an 01 with 24,000 miles on it. Ive had it for about 9,000 miles. Since ive had it the plugs have never been changed. Lately ive been noticing a missfire (or hesitation) at high rpms (6000-8000) Could this be a pulg problem. I dont think they have ever been changed. Any ideas?

Thanks.

They were probably never changed. It's recommended to change those every 8,000 miles according to the manual. I went 16,000 on my originals with no problem 15,000 on my second set... with 20-some thousand miles, it may just be too much. Start with replacing those plugs. If that's not it, at least you replaced something that needed it anyway. Good luck
