To gap the spark plugs take them out [1 by 1 ]if i was you so you dont get the leads mixed up and check the gap on the plugs and if badly worn then replace all ,if all ok then reset the gap to 26 thou by tapping them on anything hard [spanner etc] untill the feeler gauge will slide between both points at [28thou] and then refit back in the head.
DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN replace lead and then do another.

Usually somewhere on the engine or in the engine compartment, there is a sticker with the engine specifications. The spark plug gap should be included. If not .032 or an inch should be close.
Good luck

Spark plug gap for ford focus 1.6 with bosch hr78nx plugs


Dear god. none of you sound like you know what your doing.
The Bosch HR 78 NX spark plug is a super 4 plug that has 4 outer ground electrodes and uses surface air gap technology.

There is no need to mess about gapping the plugs as they are Factory pre-gapped electrodes.
  • Higher ignition reliability thanks to eight possible ignition gaps
  • Self-cleaning thanks to surface air-gap technology
  • Increased thermal range: up to three times as many cold starts possible as with conventional spark plugs
So don't mess about gapping your super 4 Bosch, Just fit them.

I need to chang plugs, wires oil change i was wondering if someone could tell me exactly what size sockets and drivers i need to get the job done easy and fast its a 2004 ford crown victoria interceptor...


the spark plug socket size is 5/8"x 3/8" drive and you need a 3/8 drive 3" or 6" extension with a 3/8 drive ratchet and a spark plug gapping tool to make sure the plugs are gapped properly.the drain plug is either a 1/2" or 7/8" wrench depending if it has been replaced due to being bad.

How to change spark plugs


Those are as easy as they come these days. Mark each spark plug wire with a piece of tape with the cylinder # written on it, so as not to mix up the wires. Remove each spark plug wire by firmly grasping the wire by the boot (do not pull on the wire) and twist it back and forth a few times while pulling slowly. It should pop off without a great deal of effort. If it is seized and it breaks, you will have to replace the wire, or at the very least replace the terminals (if you can get some). Use an air hose and blow around the base of each spark plug to dislodge any loose dirt that could fall into the cylinders (not absolutely necessary, but a good idea). Remove each spark plug with a spark plug socket and extension and ratchet (I forget which size socket, it's either 5/8 or 13/16). Check the gaps of each new spark plug (typically around 0.035 in). re-install each new spark plug by hand (do not cross-thread them) and once you have ensured that the plug is threaded in properly, tighten the plug until it seats, and then tighten an additional 1/16 of a turn. Repeat this for the remaining plugs. Re-install wires to the corresponding spark plugs. You're done!

What size engine? Check the gap on the plugs as well. "pregapped" is not always right
