Just put jb4

It true that once I put jb4 I should change the coil and the spark plug? I have 40mile and I had jb4 for a week already and it was misfire 5,6 so I change just the coil and it run fine both coil 5,6 should I change the rest 1,2,3, and 4 and all spark plug or just wait until they go bad?

might as well hop on ebay and just order all 6 coils. If you still get misfire codes could be injector, lpfp, or in my case recently hpfp failure.

You should change all of the plugs if they have over 25K.

The coilpacks can be a bit pricey. Eventually the others may fail but that is up to you if you want to change them or if you are having problems.

Don't buy coil packs second hand from eBay and such. They have production dates stamped on the coils. Many sellers selling older production coils cheap which are prone to fail.
You want new revisions made within the last two years.

I THINK you are asking if you should replace all plugs at 40k miles. I know you said 40mile, but again i THINK you meant 40k Yes OP, replace plugs. I did right after Jb4 isntall because of missfires. Haven't had a missfire since.
