What is the spark plug gap on a 2005 Silverado 5.3


Every spark plug gap is different, because every spark widens the gap by a certain amount. So, you would have to MEASURE each one, to find out the individual gaps. What you SHOULD have asked, is what SHOULD the gaps be, instead of what ARE they!

What is spark plug gap?


Spark plug gap is the distance between the center electrode and the side electrode. One usually measures it with a feeler, or thickness, gauge. The specifications for your vehicle (may be in the service manual) will specify the appropriate gap which can be adjusted by carefully bending the side electrode of the spark plug.

Can i use a ruler to measure gap on spark plug


If your can see the difference between .020 (20 thousands) and .025 (25 thousandths) of an inch than you may not need a gap tool.
A $3 spark plug gap tool is a must, you can get it at any auto parts store. Also if your spark plug is stuck in the socket, get a new socket and spark plug, but if you need it now take the socket wrench off the socket and place the socket in a vice. Then with the biggest screwdriver that will fit in the socket wrench hole, place the screw driver tip on the top of the spark plug stuck in the socket and hit the other end of the screw driver with a hammer until the spark plug comes out...... get a bigger hammer. note: the old spark plug may not survive.

What is the gap needed for a 2010 Sportage 2.7


The spark plug gap? If you are using platinum or iridium plugs (recommended), do not measure the gap as you will damage the plug.

What is the spark plug gap for a 04 1.6 toyota avensis


Great that you are checking/measuring the spark plug gap...many people overlook this setting...you can not count on the new plug having the correct gap...Most plugs with today's electronic ignitions use the 35 mm gap...however, your best answer is to ask your Auto Parts store what the gap should be when you purchase the new plugs...Good job, hope this helps.

What is the spark plug gap measurement for a Toyota Corolla AE101?


Hi Noel and Hi Ruth, Depending on the engine fitted to your Corolla, you may need to fit double electrode plugs which are pre set. Most reputable plug manufactures preset the gaps these days, but in the event that they are single electrode and need resetting, go for one millimeter. Regards John

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.

How wide should i gap the spark plugs for a 1997 toyota tercel


The spark plug gap is usually set on the plugs when you get them new. But its best to check them with a guage. The spark plug gap measurement should be located on the sticker under your hood beside the engine size/i.d. or inside your owners manual.
