My husband can't get these out to put 2 new ones in, so we are taking it to the Dodge Dealership, and their labor estimate was $255 (3 hours) to $340 (4 hours). Will it really take that long?

1999 Dodge Ram 1500 Question: How much labor time is estimated to take out 2 stuck spark plugs?

Short of taking to another shop and getting a second opinion this is only way to know. Job like this is not something you can get out of a time guide. Even the dealer has not nailed down a exact time estimate to do it. The thing in my mind is why are the spark plugs seized in the first place.

These two plugs won't turn to loosen.

You say the will not turn ..I understand. Its not a normal occurence that it happens. The labor rate they are charging per hour is about average....the time they have estimated is more of a guesstimate. I truly do not think they are trying to take advantage of you.
