99.9% percent of the time when you buy new plugs you don't have to gap them. Actually i have heard mechanics go as far to say "don't check or touch the gap cause you might bend it and change it."

But if you are looking to check the ones you have look under the hood for a white sticker. Usually on the hood itself, it will be a sticker that has a lot of information about your motor. On the bottom it will tell you your gap its usually around .40-.45

On the radiator support, there should be a sticker with the correct gap listed.
Call autozone or any parts store, and they will have the correct gap for you.

.044 should be it.

HI 2001 Nissan sentra - Car turing over but not starting - The saprks are firing too slow to get the car to turn over. Do I need to change coil pack or spark plug ?


Take the cap and button off the distributor and there is a lil plate under the cap ,unscrew the screw and see IR there is metal shavings and if it looks burnt up . If so replace the distributor . It happened to my mercury villager and it is a Nissan quest motor in it . Could be the problem ,,I couldn't believing it was that because it was getting fire but not at the right time the injector were injecting .

Nissan B13 sentra isn't starting.


All engines need 3 components: fuel, spark, and oxygen.
You'll need to check all 3 of these. start by checking your spark plugs to see if they aren't gapped or melted. Then check to make sure that fuel is reaching the engine. make sure that the fuel filter isn't clogged.
If you have the tools, run a vacuum pressure test on the lines.
