I was all ready to replace plugs this morning. I have 128k on Titan. It still runs great but figure it's time to get new ones in there. I get my spark plug socket on the plug but it seems I have to put more torque on it than I should and I don't want to break it or strip it. Dealer wants over $300 to do the job(yikes) but I'm afaid i'll f_ it up if I try to hard. What are your experiences with hard to get out plugs? I don't want this to turn into a $900 repair bill because I broke something.

try making sure your motors hot before u hit them to hard most of the time i have found that it does the job on stuck plugs but if they still seem like they wont move ya i wouldnt risk it snapping one off in the head is a pain .
I was told to change the spark plugs only when the aluminum block is cold.
However, the service manual does not provide any guidance as to if the block should be cold or hot.

Mist a little WD-40 down on the plugs.....wait a few minutes. I've pulled them hot and cold.....obviously you'll need gloves pulling them when hot. I did'nt really have a preference, just be careful and use a slow torque motion with the wrench and don't over tighten when they go back in....
