When you say externally cleaned, you mean servicing them?


Also, change the fuel and airfilter (K&N airfilter, cleaned it), and spark plugs (Bosch Super 4) aswell, did mine today, noticed the difference straight away.

You can check your spark plugs easily with a multimeter (do a search - I made a how to). Basically if the resistance is too high, replace the faulty one. You can do them anyway if your keen, a new set is about $50, you should do the spark plugs at the same time for $8. But if the car is running fine, dont worry about the spark plug leads. They are pretty reliable. I honestly dont believe there is any difference in spark plug leads. Companies do try and market them and say they put all sorts of various metals in them, at the end of the day, they all do the same job. Same input, same output.
