Q: i've been told it's very difficult to ge to the spark plugs on a Scion FRS (boxer engine). Is it possible to replace at my home

asked by on

I've been given 2 different estimates, $599 and $475. If you can do it, what would the cost be? I have 46K and the manual says to change at 60K. Does that seem right? I put a lot of mileage so it wont be long till i get to 60K

My car has 46000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
