My 98 SOHC is at 64k miles. It's running pretty decent now, but I'm wonder if/when I should change the plugs/wires ??

When do you change Spark Plugs/Wires ??

I did mine at 75k. If you look in the back of your owners manual it should tell you when they need to be replaced.

Good rule of thumb is every 60k. It's good preventative maintenance.

i have a 92 with 54k on it and i changed the wires and upgraded to platinum plus 4 spark plugs and noticed a huge difference in the power. way way way more power. the person i got it from thought the engine was bout to go but i got this thing for 1,500.00. hell of a deal. just changed the fluids and it was like a new vehicle.
