SOURCE: Mazda E-BG5P tune up specs

At an auto parts store, if you tell them the car you have (year, make, and engine), they can look up the correct one for you. If you go with the Bosch Platinum +2 or Platinum +4, they'll come pre-gapped, so you don't have to gap them yourself. I was unable to find a listing for what the proper gap is, but at the store they can either tell you or sell you a pre-gapped plug that you won't have to worry about setting.

What is the spark gap and are all brands the gap?


When you buy plugs that fit your car, they are gapped to specs, but you should always check the gap anyway.

The spark plug gap should be shown on the Vehicle Emission Control Information (VECI) label, under the hood or on the radiator support, the long white label or sticker.

Spark plug gap size 01 dodge caravan 6 cylinder 3.3l


A Chiltons/Haynes repair manual that covers this vehicle make/model/year will have the information you seek. Plus a lot of other goodies. I'll give you the gap for the 3.3 V6 used in the 1984 thru 1995 (we use it for our 1998 Grand Caravan). okay per tune-up specs, that spark plug gap is, drum roll please, 0.050 inch/1.3mm. These specs are for the OEM spark plugs Champion RN14MC5. Best of luck accessing the 3 on the back side.

5 an 6 cylinder misfires


Check on the VECI label under the hood, vehicle emission control information, the long rectangular label. It shows tune-up specs and spark plug gaps. And yes, halphin, the wrong gap can cause a misfire, if too far off.

I have a knock sensor and a 1 -misfire code. I recently gave my car a tune up and within a month i had a check engine light on. Can you tell me what i should check? Thanks


If you could elaborate a bit more on what was done to the car we could pinpoint the problem right away. However, typically a tune up is plugs, wires, cap, and filter. Given those four changes, I would point my finger at the plugs. Many of times spark plugs do not come pre-gapped. Meaning the distance between the metal and the electrode, white looking ceramic are not measured per spec. If you did not gap the plugs, I would recommend taking them out and adjusting the gap to spec. You can call the dealer and ask them for the recommended spec. I have attached a pic of a spark plug with an arrow indicating how the gap is measured. You will need a feeler gauge to measure the gap and adjust.rltofixya_3.jpg


Without proper gap the engine can/will misfire.

Changed spark plugs in my 1999 chevy blazer and it wont crank over. Gapped the plugs to specs...should I've also changed the wires, cap & rotor also?


When you go to an auto store and they give sell you spark plugs they should already be gapped to spec. There is no need to adjust the gap. This may be the reason your car will not start. I would try new spark plugs first then wires. Since the vehicle is a 99 it probably could use a tune up (spark plugs, wires, coils, cap, rotor, chassis lube, and transmission fluid check and flush if needed). Also make sure that the engine block ground strap is in good condition and that there is no corrosion covering the ends of the ground strap. The ground strap is typically located near the firewall and is directly attached from the engine block to the frame of the car.

Spark plug gap setting for a 98 range rover


what have you replaced with your tune up? should change plugs and plug wires, as well as the fuel filter, and air filter. the plugs should be set to factory spec.. be absolutely sure you've got the correct wires going to the correct plugs. the coil packs are a pain to get to but if all else fails, it may be time to replace them.

93 Vw Fox tune up specs


no points on ur car (check from the center of distributor cap and follw that wire, it leads to the COIL) and gap is usually indicated under the hood on a sticker. Should be right near the front of the hood (on the underside) or just above the rad.
