Need Advise on Replacing Spark Plugs and Fuel Filter

1920 Views 7 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  skyking
I had the schedule B service done 3-4 months ago and I was advised on replacing the spark/fuel filter since the car > 4 years old but mileage wise it only has 48000 miles and it is recommended to get it at 60,000 and I had deferred it to the next service.
My car is at the dealer again for the window regulator and I was again advised to have these replaced - the cost of replacing spark plugs + fuel filter + air filter is $700 - is it easy to do this myself - will it impact the star mark warranty ( that I have until 2006) - should I take it independent mechanic - or should I wait for the car to reach 60,000 miles for the spark plugs and fuel filter replacement.
Please advise. BTW how many spark plugs are there - 6 or 12

Thanks a lot for your prompt response.
Could you kindly send me instructions on doing the spark plugs and fuel filter - I searched for the spark plugs couldn't find detailed instructions.
Your help is appreciated.
I guess I can easily handly the air filter myself.
What spark plugs should I go with.

Thanks !!
Could you please send me instructions to replace the fuel filter
Does anyone know of any reputable mechanics in San Diego who can do this but are less expensive than the dealer??
Please advise
