SOURCE: How do I change the spark plugs on a BMW 523i

The spark plug change is very straight forward. Basically, you remove the plastic valve cover trim panel, unplug the harness plugs from each of the ignition coils, remove the two nuts securing each coil, pull the coil up. The rubber spark plug connector boot should come up with the coil. You can now remove the spark plugs.

The spark plugs are not gappable. Install them as they come out of the box.

Replace the rubber connector boots at the same time, these wear out and can cause miss-fire problems.

Note that if you find oil in the spark plug wells, the valve cover gaskets must be replaced. Not only does this make a mess, but it deteriorates the boots and also causes miss-fires.

See the DIY article in the Spring 2005 issue of the Bavarian Autosport - Fast Times newsletter (see link below):

Contact Bavarian Autosport for the spark plugs and connector boots (and valve cover gaskets) at 800-535-2002, or order online.

SOURCE: What is the correct spark plug gap for hyundai

Actually I just redid the plugs and wires for an 01 I just got as a DD. The NGK Iridiums I put in said to gap them at .044 in, the label under the hood says between .039 and .043 and I'm guessing that's for the OEM plugs.

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

What is the spark plug gap?


This is the gap between the inner electrode on the end of the plug and the metal part near the electrode attached to the plug housing. There are many different versions of plugs, but this is the most common, and the plug and plug gap must be correct for the engine in which it is installed. In most cases, this gap is set correctly at the factory and may only need to be checked, not changed.

What is the correct spark plug gap


I'd use the type spark plug recommended by your owners manual, the manual may also give you the gap. There may be a decal under your hood that gives this info. Anywhere you buy sparks will have the gap in the info. For one ngk plug I looked at, it said .043in gap.

Different spark plugs manufacturers may have different gap recommendations.

Misfiring after replacement of spark plugs and wires


If it wasn't misfiring before. Make sure you have the proper gap on the spark plugs. Make sure you have the wires connected in the correct order. If you have the old wires, you may want to end up trying those one at a time to make sure you don't have a defect wire either.
Thank you,

Need do know the spark plugs gap


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.

  1. Remove the spark plug wires. Use a socket wrench to remove the spark plugs from their chambers.
  2. Clean the spark plug if you are not replacing it with a new one. Remove all dirt and debris from the spark plug.
  3. Check the owner's manual for your car (or any appliance with spark plugs) to find out the recommended gap setting.
  4. Use a gap tool to check the gap of the spark plug. Slip the tool between the ground electrode and center electrode. The gap tool should fit snugly at the recommended gap width indicated on the tool.
  5. Push the tool between the electrodes a few times to ensure proper gap. If the gap is too wide, push the ground electrode firmly against a flat surface to narrow the gap and then check again with the gap tool.
  6. Repeat Step 5 as necessary until you reach the correct gap. Reseat the spark plug and reattach the spark plug wires
Good Luck
