That's the age to start them. Although......nothing really makes sense to them until they know exactly what each component of the ignition system does and why too large or too small of a gap will cut out peak efficiency.
I remember learning the fundamentals of automotive in high school, but it really didn't all click together until having explained in trade school. And even then, there were a lot of "deer in the headlight" looks among classmates.
I bet she has a big smile on her face when you take her on a tractor ride!

Capable, assured girls grow into confident, forward moving women. Too much for some "men".

Those "men" have no problem attracting those "confident, forward moving women" though, I wonder why that is? ???

Good job there.

Problem is today's vehicles just don't require as frequent changes.
It has been 5 years since I have changed plugs, and I did those when my daughter was at school.

my next planned plug change is not for at least 2 more years.

Got that right. Our girls (12 and 16) have been in the garage with me several times, Crossfit with their mom and I, and hopefully will be worldly, powerful women. Good job OP.

Excellent! Even if it never becomes a passion or even a hobby, that is quality bonding time as well as useful skillsets.

That's very good-now she already knows more about an engine than most of the US population.

Now cut her loose on a V6 that requires half a day of disassembly to get to some of the plugs!

Good job Chris! thumbsup Your time investment is priceless.
