SOURCE: spark plug gap
Notice: This engine has aluminum cylinder heads. Do not remove the spark plugs from a hot engine, allow it to cool first. Removing the spark plugs from a hot engine may cause spark plug thread damage or cylinder head damage.
Gap the spark plug, using round wire type spark plug gap gage.
Gap Adjust the spark plug gap to 1.14 mm (0.045 in).
DO NOT coat the spark plugs with anti seize compound. Over torquing could occur and damage to the cylinder head threads may result.
If your going to use Platnum plugs, DO NOT GAP them. Just check the gap and if there not the right gap, ask for new one's with the right gap.
The metal on the PLatnum plugs, are harder and my break apart in the cylinder .
Good luck and hope this helps

If you're replacing the spark plugs in your car
engine, you'll need to set the gap before reseating the
spark plug. The gap is the distance electricity arcs between the ground
electrode and center electrode. The gap must be set correctly to ensure
maximum performance. Here's how to set the gap of a spark plug.
