You really do not need to gap the spark plugs when replacing them.

What is the spark plug gap?


This is the gap between the inner electrode on the end of the plug and the metal part near the electrode attached to the plug housing. There are many different versions of plugs, but this is the most common, and the plug and plug gap must be correct for the engine in which it is installed. In most cases, this gap is set correctly at the factory and may only need to be checked, not changed.

2001 Honda Passport, change spark plugs with coils on top. Hard to do? Spark plug gap?


not hard to do , just need a little patience to get the coils out of the plug wells.also a swivel type 5/8 inch spark plug socket works best when removing the plugs. as for the spark plug gap, the vehicle requires platinum plugs which do not need gapped.

My car has been idling low. i have changed the plugs.


Usually when you change the plugs that you also should change the distributor cap and rotor as well. When you changed the plugs with hopefully with the Alero specifications type manufacturer spark plugs that you have to also change the timing belt too is why your idling is low. All spark plugs have a gap in them so your car special plugs should too. You might have the wrong spark plugs with the wrong gap in them so you can ask autozone for the gap specs for your year, make and model plus you can buy the right spark plugs there too. The spark gap will change the timing of car depends on the gap.

I changed my front 3 spark plugs and a broken wire now and i have very bad rough idle and i could hear clicks? whats going on? should I put the old ones back on? the new ones were bought from...


The spark plugs should be matched up with the old ones to be sure that are the same as the new spark plugs and that the threads are not too long or too short and if the spark plugs were pre-gapped or if they need to be gapped, and the auto part store should have given you that information along with any spark plug gap because some spark plugs you can not set the gap on or they will be damaged. The spark plug gap should also be printed on the emission label out under the hood. Also, the other three spark plugs and wires should be changed to complete the ignition tune-up.

The spark plug gap should be the same amount between all of the spark plugs, and the farther apart that the gap is between the spark plugs the rougher the engine will run and idle, and the closer that you get to the same spark plug gap between the spark plugs the smoother the engine will run and idle.

It is also very important that the spark plugs be connected to the correct terminals on the coil pack or the engine will have a severe mis-fire and it will set a mis-fire DTC (Data Trouble Code) and cause the check engine light to come on.

Here is a firing order diagram to help assist you and let me know if need help with this diagram or if you require any further assistance.

When do the spark plugs need changed


Spark plugs like any electrical device become worn over time. Spark plugs also work under extreme condition. The use of cheap fuels will leave deposits, poor maintenance, bad air filters, old plug wires, all these items can cause a spark plug to fail or not perform at its peak level. Also spark plugs use a gap or Electrical bridge that is used for high voltage to arc across. The larger the gap the hotter the spark until you reach a point that the coil can not bridge the gap and then you get a misfire. Also when a plug gets deposits from either oil, poor fuel, carbon this will shorten the gap and cause a weaker spark resulting in poor performance, wasted fuel and engine dieseling or Run on after the ignition is turned off.
These are the simple reasons for spark plug replacement.
