What is the recommended spark plug for a 2000 2.4 litre grand am...? Thanks.

3.4L V6 engine = Gap: 0.060" (1.52mm)

For 2.4L L4 engine

My owners manual lists AC Type 41-942 (Platinum Plug) Gap: 0.050" (1.27mm).
But says AC Delco part # 41-942 spark plug, platinum plug is GAP .060" without RPO (RC9).

Just after engine torque settings for a 2 litre cortina 1981 cylinder head and crank settings

wow a real engine built by proper craftsman in dagenham ,well the head bolts are around 70 lbs ,tappet settings 12 inlet and 15 exhaust unless its the Gt version then they were wider but clacked like hell so fit a standard cam ,2.0 engine is valve free so if belt snaps you do not damage the valves ,timing for unleaded fuel which these engines will run on is about 6? static .timing marks are easy to see ,These engine are stelite coated valves and seats so even 1972 engine one the first engines will run on unleaded fuel .engine oil use shell rotella diesel /petrol as this was used on all ford engines in the assembly plant .Another tip use the 98 octane fuel as they were designed to run on 4 star petrol which was 97 octane .points gap 25th and plug gaps 25 as well ,cannot seem to remember the firing order though ,old age comes to us all iam afraid but i think it was 1243 but it could have been 1342 ,i should know i fitted enough plug leads in my time .

Spark plugs and gap

call an autoparts store and tell them you want a price on sparkplugs for your (in this order) 1998, Ford, Contour, then tell them which engine you have (4 or 6 cylander). Then ask for the gap recommended (this information should be in the parts store computer) Also, there is a sticker under the hood (or possibly on the underside of the hood) with tuning specifications like spark plug gap and timing for the engine. Good luck

How to change a spark plug on a 2001 murcury cougar

Get a swivel fitting for your socket wrench. You may also need a short extension for the socket wrench. You will also need a spark plug socket to fit those plugs. Make sure that you pull the plug wires off by gripping the fat part of the plug wire and not the wire itself lest you tear it and ruin it.
