    The truck is a basic 2 wheel drive 1989 f 150 truck with a 302 v8. A friend of mine is picking up some plugs for and has asked me to find out what the gap is supposed to be. I don't have access to my truck at the moment to see what the emmision sticker says. I appreciate your prior response. Hope this info will be sufficient.

Did tune up on my 91 ford f150 302 5.0L V8 4x4 pick up which included s[ark plugs and wires, cap and rotor, oil change, new oil and air it is riding rougher and worse gas mileage than before?...

did you properly "gap" the spark plugs? many spark plugs have to have the ends properly "gapped" before installation, by using a "gapping" tool/wheel to properly space the arc gap to the correct distance.

if the plugs were properly gapped, or already came pre-gapped out of the box for your specific vehicle, then you may have air getting into the cylinders around the spark plugs. were you careful to properly tighten the spark plugs straightly into place, or is there a chance that you left one loose, or, even worse, cross-threaded one of the spark plugs?

What is the spark plug gap setting for a Ford F150 302 V8. Thanks as ever larryjar

it should be .054 however You should always use the sticker under the hood of your vehicle. If for some reason your says .052-.056, then that is what you use. The stickers on the truck will have the most specific info for that truck of anything. I need the year to be more sure, also when you buy the plugs, the parts store can tell you the exact gap.
