I've always heard good things about the motorcraft gp's. When I change mine, that's what I will go with. 170k on the original ones...knock on wood.

I checked on prices before i sold my 99 and it was actually cheaper to let the ford dealer do it than buy from advance or napa just thought i would share that.

Stay away from Autolite, they swell and break off.

Was either or starting fluid ever involved with the swelling and breaking?

I've always heard to go with Motorcraft because all the others swell and are a pain to get out later. And they're about the same price or cheaper than some other brands.

Just curious, either/starting fluid is the leading cause of swelling and breaking.
