My first thought is no, but with all the electronics I guess that would be possible. The plugs are critical to the Trooper running correctly. Use the wrong plug and it WILL cause issues. I have this note from when I change my plugs several years ago, almost time to think about doing it again since I am around 150K miles on my 2000 Trooper LS.
Trooper spark plug Denso
I used the RC10PYP4 Champion plugs, seems they were around $4 each at WalMart 3-4 years ago. It turned out my Trooper had those plugs installed at the factory. BTW, if you have trouble getting the rubber boot off the plugs, a little shot of compressed air will pop them right off.

i think my trooper needs transmission fluid but i cannot find where to add it. Do i have to take it into a mechanic to have it done?

There is an access plug on the side of the transmission. Difficult to get to and I could not find a diagram last time I looked for one on-line. The trick seems to be.. with the transmission warm, engine running and in neutral, using a flexible hose .. add tranny fluid into that top access hole until it starts running back out and it is full.

#74 of 167 97 Trooper Trans Error, Brakes & CV Boots
Jul 06, 2010 (12:11 pm)
I purchased a green 1997 Trooper 109000 miles for $2300. The dealer changed the brake pads in May and I did an oil change. Today the right front brake caliper locked (its been grinding for a couple days) and new front brake pads, rotors and calipers will cost $566. It will also need CV boots/axles for $125 left, $95 right. The Trans light came on with the same erronious 1870 code that so many people have posted about. A few suggestions were to change the trans fluid and it may go away. Granted, I feel I didnt get it checked out properly first but all things considered, I'd like to know if this is considered routine for the year/miles? Or should I trade it after getting the brakes fixed? This site has been very helpful, thanks!! ??

#76 of 167 Check Trans light started blinking
Jul 23, 2010 (8:56 pm)
We bought a 93 Trooper today. When we originally test drove it everything was fine. After we bought it we drove it up a hill and the check trans light started blinking and the car slowed down. We cut the car off and started it up and the light went out until we went up another hill. Does anyone know what this is. The dealer said that he would take the car back if we cant get it fixed. Any suggestions?
