    Plug life

    Does the age of the spark plug matter versus the mileage? My 98 SS has the orginal plugs, but the car only has 34,000. Should I change the plugs based on age alone?

    I'd change them, since the plugs are 12 years old

    If it's running fine you should be OK.

    OTOH, new plugs wouldn't hurt anything.

    As long as the wires are'nt cracked, leaking spark, dry rotted etc.etc. There's nothing wrong with the original plugs. 34,000 miles is 34,000 miles, today or 10 years from now. Plugs don't usually go bad from sitting, but spark plug wires can......
