According to my '99 owner's manual & http://www.ngksparkplugs.com:

2.4L L4 engine= Gap: 0.050" (1.27mm)
3.4L V6 engine = Gap: 0.060" (1.52mm)


Edit:
For 2.4L L4 engine

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

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

Misfiring after replacement of spark plugs and wires


If it wasn't misfiring before. Make sure you have the proper gap on the spark plugs. Make sure you have the wires connected in the correct order. If you have the old wires, you may want to end up trying those one at a time to make sure you don't have a defect wire either.
Thank you,

Stay away from those Gimmick Spark Plugs , they are just more money for nothing. A good platinum spark plug is all you need, the key is to gap it correctly to your application...

On GM products Vin # W it is .045 plug gap
On Gm products Vin # Z it is .035 plug gap

You will not have huge gains in fuel mileage from replacing spark plugs except to say that if your old ones are just extremely bad, there is no magical spark plug with extra mileage manufactured into it.... Hope this helps...

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/

Mazda E-BG5P tune up specs


At an auto parts store, if you tell them the car you have (year, make, and engine), they can look up the correct one for you. If you go with the Bosch Platinum +2 or Platinum +4, they'll come pre-gapped, so you don't have to gap them yourself. I was unable to find a listing for what the proper gap is, but at the store they can either tell you or sell you a pre-gapped plug that you won't have to worry about setting.
