New - 06 Grand Cherokee Overland..Hemi insight?

Hello fellow Jeep owners...Just bought an 06 Grand Cherokee Overland with Hemi 5.7. Previously owned an 04 Grand Cherokee 4.0 Jeep 6 cyl. My friend said what a mistake I made as tune ups are 700-800 as it has 16 spark plugs etc. I would like some insight as I did not research the Hemi. It seems like a great engine to me ( so far ). Please provide any recommendations on service and maintenance. Thanks and looking forward to the membership!

Re: New - 06 Grand Cherokee Overland..Hemi insight?

I have a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the 5.7 Hemi and I love it. It has great power and runs nice. 16 plugs are not that big of a deal- they are cheap and easy to replace. I just had an 05 Ford F150 5.4 where the plugs alone were about $15 each and they often break off in the heads. My uncle said that he had to pay $800 just to have the plugs replaced on his Ford 5.4. All engines have their quirks and problems, but I have read a lot of good things on the 5.7 Hemi. So enjoy it! I think your friend is just jealous!

Thank you sir ! I guess they have been offering that engine for many years so it must be a good powertrain. I appreciate your reply--Jeep on ! C

Do the plug change youraelf. Easy peasy. And yes16 plugs at 5.00 each. And you can see if your rear plugs on each head are filled with oil. Most likely, it will be. I just did the valve cover and plug o rings at 76k. Still smell oil on heavy throttle.
