SOURCE: H20A suzuki spark plug gap

In general, a smaller gap, like .032 inches will give you more power, better starting, especially in cold weather or with a turbo charger.
A larger gap, like .045 inchers will giver you better mileage and better reading on pollution tests.

While the oxygen sensor will pick up on any change in spark plug gap, you can compensate with a variable resistor in series with the oxygen sensor. So you can tweak the power vs mileage any way you want.

Steps for changing spark plugs on 2008 Saturn astra


First, remove the wires from the top of each spark plug, Then turn each plug counterclockwise until they are completely unscrewed. Then screw in new ones in place of the old ones, then torque them, one at a time, to the specification indicated by the manufacturer, then put each plug wire back on, in their original positions. Then you are finished!

Got Bosch HR7DCX+ spark plugs for my 98 VS Supercharged V6 Statesman, what is the correct Gap size?


I can't tell you the correct gap but I thought I would mention it is best to use the gap the plug manufacturer suggests rather than the vehicle manufacturer. Sometimes they are different.

You will probably find a Bosch spark plug application catalogue on the net and this should provide the gap specification.

I was told the spark plug gap was supposed to be 42


spark plugs are not as critical as in the older point controlled systems
the gap increased the resistance to the spark to jump and so gave a hotter spark when it occurred ( same as putting a button in the copper wired lead to burn oil on the plug)
as modern vehicles use a much higher voltage ( early 16.000 volts ,late 60.000 volts ) the the plug gap went from .025" to .050" for a better spark front to ignite the mixture
the correct gap for your vehicle can be obtained from plug catalogs, parts dealers , service shops
it is more important to use the correct HT leads as recommended by the manufacturer as there are variations of internal resistance in the carbon track in the lead that will affect the spark

How to change the spark plugs on my 2009 Hyundai Sonata 4 cyl.


remove 1 spark plug wire from the plug. Find a socket that fits the spark plug and connect it to the socket wrench. Put the socket on the spark plug and turn counter clock wise until the old spark plug is removed. Check the gap on the new replacement plug ( make sure you have the correct plug first). Put the new spark plug into the hole that the old 1 came out of and turn clockwise by hand making sure it is in straight, then tighten it clockwise until tight.( WARNING: DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE PLUG OR YOU WILL BREAK IT). replace the spark plug wire. repeat the process with the other 3 spark plugs. Start the vehicle. If you are replacing the wires, take off 1 wire at a time, match up the size and replace the old with the new.

Replace spark plug's


Things you will need
Spark Plug Socket And Wrench of the correct size for your spark plugs


Basic Instructions.
Step 1
Locate your spark plugs
look for other obstructions besides your spark plug wires
if you have any other obstructions you will need to remove them as well to gain access to your spark plugs.
Step 2
Remove the spark plug wire for one single spark plug at a time.
this will insure you will not replace the wrond spark plug wire to the incorrect spark plug,
if not done this way you could change the firing order of your engine.
Step 3
With your spark plug Socket and wrench rotate the spark plug in a counter clock wise direction for removing.
Step 4
After you have removed your spark plug insert your new replacement spark Plug into your spark plug socket before inserting it into the correct location. spark plug sockets are made to hold on to the spark plug for easy removal and install.
Step 5
insert your new spark plug,
before you rotate your spark plug for tightening rotate the spark plug a 1 quarter turn in the counter clock wise direction, then start tightening the spark plug by rotating it in a clockwise direction
This will insure you will not strip the threads.
Step 6
Continue rotation your spark plug in the clock wise direction untill snug, then with just a lil more pressure tighten it up just a little more.
be sure to not put to much force on the spark plug after it has been snug, you just have to apply a little more pressure but not to much that could cause it to break.
Step 7
After tightening the spark plug replace the correct spark plug wire.
then move on to the next spark plug and follow the same instructions.

if you have any other visiable obstructions preventing you access for replacing your spark plugs you will need instructions on how to remove them parts. i have just instructed you on how to remove and reinstall the spark plugs only.

NEW PLUGS AND WIRES


The correct arrangement?

I always remove one plug wire, replace that spark plug, and then replace that one spark plug wire. This way I never cross which plug wire to which position.
