SOURCE: 93 Vw Fox tune up specs

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.

Have a gmc vandrura 1994 had a oil change and tune done to it yet it started vibration on idle and on gear and has a rough idle and when I start it up its load and a smal vibration comes and goes idk what...


If it wasn't acting up before the tune-up, one of the spark plugs may have something across the gap, or the gap is incorrect.
Also if more than one spark plug wire was removed at a time it is likely that 2 spark plug wires got crossed, (connected to the wrong spark plug).

5 an 6 cylinder misfires


Check on the VECI label under the hood, vehicle emission control information, the long rectangular label. It shows tune-up specs and spark plug gaps. And yes, halphin, the wrong gap can cause a misfire, if too far off.

What is spark plug gap for 2000 ford focus lynx ghia 1.6l gas?


It really depends on the spark plug being used. But if you stick to the origninal spark plug NGK TR5A-10 it is supposed to be gapped a 1.0 mm since Ford has issued an in house service directive to reduce the gap from 1.3 mm (original) to 1.0 mm (present) 0.03936996

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?

Losing power when i floor it through out the gears almost like a chutter kinda like one of the cylinders is not firing correctly does not smoke and does have a high ticking noise !!


Check the SPARK PLUGS, if its new u have to GAP the electrode! Check also the timing, go to ur nearest garage and have a TUNE UP! That ticking noise might be from the HIGH VOLTAGE that suppose to go to ur SPARK PLUG and leaking out to body ground, check also the distributor cap and hi-tension cable wire! Hope that might help u out! Taah!

Spark plug gap setting for a 98 range rover


what have you replaced with your tune up? should change plugs and plug wires, as well as the fuel filter, and air filter. the plugs should be set to factory spec.. be absolutely sure you've got the correct wires going to the correct plugs. the coil packs are a pain to get to but if all else fails, it may be time to replace them.
