I have a 2001 Dodge Stratus and awhile ago I switched the plugs to a Autolite plug. Then I decided there might a problem and went back to the Champion plugs.


I believe the factory originals are champion brand, and would have been platinum, but it should still run decent with the coppers. The only thing I can think of is they are of the wrong gap. Copper plugs do not come pre- gapped at all and need to be done by installer. The gap for your stratus, if it's a 4 cylinder is .050. Wrong gap will cause no power and shaking. Correct champion number in copper is #443, and should say that on the box/plug.

1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager Expresso model 3.3litre spark plugs


Only use Champion spark plugs on a Chrysler product.
Your local auto parts supplier should have info to give you proper plug number. There should also be a sticker maybe on your hood, that has correct number as well.It appears to be RN14PMP5 if you chose the double platinum plugs, or RN14MC5 in the standard copper core. The double platinum are about twice the price but last much longer. Gap is .050". Don't let them talk you into a different brand, Champion only. I have seen too many Chrysler vehicles over the years run bad on other plugs.

2002 Chrysler PT Cruiser 2.0L need spark plug gap for Champion copper plugs (470). Thanks


It is normal for the electrodes to wear as the plugs age. This increases the distance between the electrodes which in turn leads to a gradual increase in the firing voltage required to jump the gap. The gap on a standard spark plug grows about 0.00063 to 0.000126 inch for every 1,000 miles of normal driving, which means the firing voltage requirements creep up about 500 volts for every 10,000 to 15,000 miles of driving.

The OE Champion plug gap specifications are .048 - .053" or 1.24 - 1.37mm. in accessing and changing the plugs on the PT. They have the same gap specifications as the OE plugs. Most owners gap at .050. We prefer to use the Champion Double Platinum plugs, which are more durable, provide extended plug life, and reduce the need for maintenance, given the difficulty However, if you experienced excessive rough idle with your last set of plugs we suggest gaping the OE and DP plugs to .042 and consider replacing the OE plug ignition wires.

Excessive gap can cause performance and drive ability problems, including hard starting, an engine miss and or hesitation under load, and can shorten the life of the plug (accelerated tip erosion). If it were me I would re-gap them to the correct specs if they are currently gaped at .060.

Thank you for using Fixya.
