no points on ur car (check from the center of distributor cap and follw that wire, it leads to the COIL) and gap is usually indicated under the hood on a sticker. Should be right near the front of the hood (on the underside) or just above the rad.

What is the spark plug gap on a 2005 Silverado 5.3


Every spark plug gap is different, because every spark widens the gap by a certain amount. So, you would have to MEASURE each one, to find out the individual gaps. What you SHOULD have asked, is what SHOULD the gaps be, instead of what ARE they!

What is spark plug gap?


Spark plug gap is the distance between the center electrode and the side electrode. One usually measures it with a feeler, or thickness, gauge. The specifications for your vehicle (may be in the service manual) will specify the appropriate gap which can be adjusted by carefully bending the side electrode of the spark plug.

Can i use a ruler to measure gap on spark plug


If your can see the difference between .020 (20 thousands) and .025 (25 thousandths) of an inch than you may not need a gap tool.
A $3 spark plug gap tool is a must, you can get it at any auto parts store. Also if your spark plug is stuck in the socket, get a new socket and spark plug, but if you need it now take the socket wrench off the socket and place the socket in a vice. Then with the biggest screwdriver that will fit in the socket wrench hole, place the screw driver tip on the top of the spark plug stuck in the socket and hit the other end of the screw driver with a hammer until the spark plug comes out...... get a bigger hammer. note: the old spark plug may not survive.

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.

  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.

What is the spark plug gap for a 04 1.6 toyota avensis


Great that you are checking/measuring the spark plug gap...many people overlook this setting...you can not count on the new plug having the correct gap...Most plugs with today's electronic ignitions use the 35 mm gap...however, your best answer is to ask your Auto Parts store what the gap should be when you purchase the new plugs...Good job, hope this helps.

I have a knock sensor and a 1 -misfire code. I recently gave my car a tune up and within a month i had a check engine light on. Can you tell me what i should check? Thanks


If you could elaborate a bit more on what was done to the car we could pinpoint the problem right away. However, typically a tune up is plugs, wires, cap, and filter. Given those four changes, I would point my finger at the plugs. Many of times spark plugs do not come pre-gapped. Meaning the distance between the metal and the electrode, white looking ceramic are not measured per spec. If you did not gap the plugs, I would recommend taking them out and adjusting the gap to spec. You can call the dealer and ask them for the recommended spec. I have attached a pic of a spark plug with an arrow indicating how the gap is measured. You will need a feeler gauge to measure the gap and adjust.rltofixya_3.jpg


Without proper gap the engine can/will misfire.

How wide should i gap the spark plugs for a 1997 toyota tercel


The spark plug gap is usually set on the plugs when you get them new. But its best to check them with a guage. The spark plug gap measurement should be located on the sticker under your hood beside the engine size/i.d. or inside your owners manual.
