2001 really., that year? wrong year, you did that.
in the usa, (this is a usa forum)
posted 100s of times.
open hood, look up under hood, see that EPA sticker,
showing just that?
the 3.2L was introduced in 2008/9
depends on what plugs, some are not gap settable.
usa spec, 2010.
read this FSM page.
hen servicing an iridium spark plug, do not touch the center electrode. The center electrode on this type of spark plug is slender and can be damaged if a mechanical force is applied. Do not clean or adjust the gap for the iridium spark plugs.
IF NOT THAT THEN,
old technology spark plugs, not above.
The 3.2L engine spark plug air gap specification is: 0.043-0.047 inch (1.1-1.2mm).

How to change spark plugs



REMOVAL PROCEDURE
  1. Remove the ignition control modules.
  2. Clean the spark plug recess area with low pressure air.
CAUTION: Wear safety glasses when using compressed air, as flying dirt particles may cause eye injury.

NOTE: Clean the spark plug recess area before removing the spark plug. Failure to do so could result in engine damage because of dirt or foreign material entering the cylinder head, or by the contamination of the cylinder head threads. The contaminated threads may prevent the proper seating of the new plug. Use a thread chaser to clean the threads of any contamination.

  1. Remove the spark plugs from the cylinder heads.
NOTE: Allow the engine to cool before removing the spark plugs. Attempting to remove the spark plugs from a hot engine may cause the plug threads to seize, causing damage to cylinder head threads.
  1. Inspect the spark plugs. Refer to Spark Plug Inspection.
INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
  1. Measure the spark plug gap on the spark plugs to be installed. Compare the measurement to the gap specifications.
NOTE:
  • Use only the spark plugs specified for use in the vehicle. Do not install spark plugs that are either hotter or colder than those specified for the vehicle. Installing spark plugs of another type can severely damage the engine.
  • Check the gap of all new and reconditioned spark plugs before installation. The pre-set gaps may have changed during handling. Use a round feeler gage to ensure an accurate check. Installing the spark plugs with the wrong gap can cause poor engine performance and may even damage the engine.
117381099
  1. Install the spark plugs to the cylinder heads.
NOTE:
  • Be sure that the spark plug threads smoothly into the cylinder head and the spark plug is fully seated. Use a thread chaser, if necessary, to clean threads in the cylinder head. Cross-threading or failing to fully seat the spark plug can cause overheating of the plug, exhaust blow-by, or thread damage.
  • Refer to Component Fastener Tightening Notice in Service Precautions.
Tighten the spark plugs to 20 N.m (15 lb ft) .
  1. Install the ignition control modules.

.


Inspect the electrodes and ceramic insulator.






  • Burned or worn electrodes may be caused by:




    • Advanced ignition timing


    • Loose spark plug


    • Plug heat range too hot


    • Insufficient cooling









  • Fouled plug may be caused by:




    • Retarded ignition timing


    • Oil in combustion chamber


    • Incorrect spark plug gap


    • Plug heat range too cold


    • Excessive idling/low speed running


    • Clogged air cleaner element


    • Deteriorated ignition coils












2.


Check the electrode gap (A). If the gap is over the standard, adjust the gap with suitable gapping tool.







Electrode Gap




Standard (New):


1.0-1.1 mm (0.039-0.043 in.)












3.


Replace the plug at the specified interval, or if the center electrode is rounded (A). Use only the spark plugs as listed.

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.

Did tune up on my 91 ford f150 302 5.0L V8 4x4 pick up which included s[ark plugs and wires, cap and rotor, oil change, new oil and air filters...now it is riding rougher and worse gas mileage than before?...


did you properly "gap" the spark plugs? many spark plugs have to have the ends properly "gapped" before installation, by using a "gapping" tool/wheel to properly space the arc gap to the correct distance.

if the plugs were properly gapped, or already came pre-gapped out of the box for your specific vehicle, then you may have air getting into the cylinders around the spark plugs. were you careful to properly tighten the spark plugs straightly into place, or is there a chance that you left one loose, or, even worse, cross-threaded one of the spark plugs?

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.

Spark plug gap ?


Well Buddy, this is what the book calls for:

Standard NGK PFR5G-11 Hot NGK PFR4G-11 Cold NGK PFR6G-11 Spark Plug Air Gap 0.039 - 0.043 in Spark Plug Torque 14 - 22 ft.lb
Spark Plug Type Spark Plug P/N Standard NGK PFR5G-11 Hot NGK PFR4G-11 Cold NGK PFR6G-11 Spark Plug Air Gap 0.039 - 0.043 in Spark Plug Torque For all plugs (normal; NGK PFR5G-11, Hot; NGK PFR4G-11, and Cold; NGK PFR6G-11) the air gap on these plugs range from 0.039 - 0.043 in. This is a "5 thousandths" variation, and won't effect noticibly, the performance if you go with a "happy-medium" of 0.041 in

Also note that the foot pounds of torque are:14 - 22 ft.lb

Spark plug gap


Notice: This engine has aluminum cylinder heads. Do not remove the spark plugs from a hot engine, allow it to cool first. Removing the spark plugs from a hot engine may cause spark plug thread damage or cylinder head damage.
Gap the spark plug, using round wire type spark plug gap gage. 


Gap Adjust the spark plug gap to 1.14 mm (0.045 in).

DO NOT coat the spark plugs with anti seize compound. Over torquing could occur and damage to the cylinder head threads may result.

If your going to use Platnum plugs, DO NOT GAP them. Just check the gap and if there not the right gap, ask for new one's with the right gap.

The metal on the PLatnum plugs, are harder and my break apart in the cylinder .

Good luck and hope this helps
