This might sound like a very stupid question but does the 2.3L PZEV have spark plugs and if so when do i replace them.The only reason I ask is because my friends tell me they are glow plugs but when I open the hood the specification tell the SPARK PLUG GAP SECS. Any help would be appreciated.

thanx in advance

You have perfectly normal spark plugs.

they are spark plugs. The ignition system is called "coil on plug" Or COP for short. The idea is to make the ignition system the most efficient as possible. Elimination of the spark plug wires is very efficient. Your plugs are double platinum plugs that are supposed to go for 100k, but it is best to change them sooner, like at 60-70k.

Autolite 103's and 104's have done nicely for me, make sure you get the copper core and swap them out with each oil change.
