You did not mention your car model, but if it is new enough that you are using Platinum +2 plugs, it is probably less than 20 years old. The gap does not really matter with a modern electronic ignition.
The books don't list a gap because it is easy to damage modern plugs trying to adjust the gap. Better to leave it as you find it.
If the plug has been dropped causing the gap to close, you don't want to use it. A chunk of porcelain breaking off inside a cylinder can do a lot of damage.

Gap is an engine specification, not a plug brand/model issue.

SOURCE: backfire- just replaced plugs and wires and now

Cylinders 1-3-5 are on the back side of the engine. Cylinder 1 is the passenger side and cylinder 5 is the drivers side.

Cylinders 2-4-6 are on the front of the engine. Cylinder 2 is on the passenger side and cylinder 6 is on the drivers side.

The coil pack will have the cylinders labeled at each post.

What is the right plug for a 1994 ford explorer?

One of the best plug for the 4.0 V6 is the Bosch Platinum Part number 5256-05252087. These plugs come pre-gapped so you don't need to worry about that. The bad thing is, they're almost $5.00 each. In case you buy a plug that does need to be gapped, like the Platinum Plus plug, the gap is 0.054 in.
Good luck and Happy New Year,

Cylinder 4 misfire, someone said plugs? if so what type or brand is recommended. Idles rough/and stutters-shutters esp a speed up to 50mph.

I use Bosch platinum plugs in my Jeep Grand Wagoneer. I recommend nothing less than double platinum. Bosch makes a platinum plug with 4 electrodes - these are great because you don't have to set the gap on them. I have an 8 cylinder and these plugs aren't exactly cheap, but, with these rising gas prices, they DO make a difference in performance and mileage. Hope this helps!!

What is a good spark plug to use for a tune up

HI. The bosh platinum brand will be the better solution.

Bosch Platinum+2 offers great firing technology, which combines the advantages of 2 nickel-yttrium ground electrodes, pure platinum center electrode and surface air gap technology for optimum engine performance, smoother acceleration and better gas mileage. The key here is "better gas mileage"

I run these plugs myself, and they are very nice replacement plugs

What info do i need to change spark plugs on a 2004 jeep cherokee

You will need to know that it is a 2004 Jeep Cherokee (or either Grand Cherokee, but they should have same engine) and the engine code. That is the 8th character in your VIN number. Parts store can then get you the right plugs and let you know the correct gap to set them at. IF you do not want to mess with setting the gap you can get BOSCH DOUBLE PLATINUM plugs, they will not need to be set.

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.
