tough to say mark, could be tomarrow, could be 200,000 miles from now. Just carry a spare in the glove box with a wratchet, 10mm socket, and short extention. A 6 point socket is advisible over a 12pt socket.....

sometimes it sputters, but usually it dies. sometimes they restart right away, other times they will restart after they sit for a while, other times they wont start at all
