Can I use iridium spark plugs on my GA13 Engine (Nissan Sentra B13 body, 1995? Which is better, iridium or platinum spark plugs?

As far as I know, iridium spark plugs are built to run 100,000 miles. They were made for hard to install cars, like minivans and some new cars like the Nissan Versa.
I wouldn't recommend it, since it will do the same job as the platinum spark plugs, plus you'll be saving a ton of cash, iridium spark plugs could go up as $34.00 each.

What is the oe spark plug type for a 2002 kia optima 2.4L

KIA is a korean auto. most asian cars recommend nippondenso (also known as NGK) spark plugs. at their site they show 3 plugs available for your car. standard plug number W16EPR-U11, platinum plug number P16PR11, and iridium power plug number IW16, all with a gap of 0.044. standard will do. platinum is better performance. iridium is extremely long life. they go up in price accordingly. use dielectric jell on the plugs shaft to make removal of wires easier next time and to prevent moisture, and anti-sieze compound to the threads of plugs to keep them from seizing in the block and easier to remove next time. I got this info at nippondenso's website here:

Chevrolet trailblazer 2006 engine spark plugs

Platinum (or more precisely-AC Delo Iridium) spark plugs. The six spark plugs are directly under each of the six coils on top of the camshaft cover. The air intake needs to be removed, then each of the 10mm bolts for the individual coils. The coils can then be removed and the spark plugs accessed.

Recommended spark plugs for 2001 acura 32 tl

Iridium or platinum plugs are recommended for the car. The Iridium are a little more costly, but not terribly so. The NGK -Ix-Iridium plug is the one that I would use. It is available at most parts stores and go for about $7 apiece. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Replace spark plugs with plat core plug

Platinum plugs are NOT recommended for the Echo. The heat ranges are different. Put the right plugs in it (buy them from a Toyota dealer) and see if your problem vanishes. I get this quite a bit, customers put in new plugs, and it runs worse than it did before they changed the plugs. Note that ALL Toyota engines have a specific plug engineered for each engine. Platinums do not work unless the engine was designed for it. Same with iridium and NO Toyota runs well on the "split fire" plugs. If the problem persidts, change the coils around, see if the misfire "moves" to a new location, and you get a DTC P-0300, P-0301 and P-0302. If so, your coil pack may have failed, BUT, do the plugs first.
