I went to my dealership today, looking at new cars, and asked the Service Manager how much to do my Spark plugs in my 08 Hemi Megacab. Without blinking he says: "$750.00". I looked at him with a YOU'VE GOT TO BE $H!T!NG ME" look and asked; "$750.00? Just to replace the Plugs? Does it include a full tune up, Computer upgrade and check and Throttle body, or anything?" He looked at me like I was an idiot for asking such a question and said; "No! Just the plugs." I just said, OK, sorry to bother you.and walked away.

I've done my own for all the years I've owned my truck(Original Owner) but I've gotten older in those 12 years of ownership and I can't finagle my way around those back cylinders anymore.

Is $750, the going rate nowadays just to replace the spark plugs?

I didn't ask. I sent a message to the guy I bought my truck from and is one of the Senior guys there now to ask him if he could explain how changing 15 spark plugs warranted $750.00. I've gone there for years and bought my 92 Dakota there and had all my major repair work done there. But, I think, that's about to change.

Yeah. I bought all mine from Rock Auto and have had them sitting in my room for the past 6 months, waiting for my shoulders and back to get better so I could do the job. I wouldn't be surprised if, for the $750, they just put the basic Champion copper plugs in as were factory OEM.
