open your bonnet at night with the engine running, if you see spark arcing to the head they are well and truely rooted. I am sure others can tell you a more accurate and consistant way of checking.

you get a multimeter and measure the resistance against the ideal measurements from a workshop manual for your car

or rule of thumb, if you havnt replaced them for a couple years or more, then just replace them.
