Depending on the mileage, the excessive gap may be due to wear. It also may be from the plugs not being properly gapped when they were previously installed. I would recommend installing a new set of plugs, and setting the gap to the factory specs.

What is the spark plug gap for a 1996 Ford Ranger 3.0? When purchasing the plugs I was informed it was .44. but I am getting a slight back fire when engine is running.


0.042-0.046 is the correct gap for your spark plugs,If it is backfiring now and was not before make sure you were not sold platinum bosch plugs and if you are using factory plugs,then I be looking for a faulty spark plug.Also make sure the firing order is correct.ramundoo_2.gif

SPARK PLUG GAP


These engines use platinum plugs-you don't gap these type of plugs because you will damage te platinum electrode and cause misfire problems. Make sure you use bosch platinum factory recommended plugs and if he vehicle has more than 75k i would recommend replacing your plug wires as well/
