If this is for a two cycle motor--Try using synthetic oil mix. (lucas or amsoil) Use nothing less than 89 mid grade. May be the ethanol in the gas

I installed new spark plugs and wires in my 1999 voyager and now it won't start. Van started perfect before installed new ones

What type of plugs are you trying to use? I had a serious performance issue with the 1999 Dakota after putting platinum plugs in it for a tune up . I found out that with the old-style ignition coil and distributor cap setup that there was not a hot enough spark to fire the platinum plugs properly. Went back to the old copper-core OEM plugs and everything ran fine. High performance plugs on a "low performance" ignition system equals major headaches. Here was one case where better wasn't better.

Plug wires on 2006 Camry. Am replacing plugs on 2006 4 cyl Camry. Trying to pull the plug wire off the contact at each plug and the retaining clips are splitting and breaking. Are these replaceable?

Since the vehicle is already 8 years old, you are better off replacing the plug wires as a whole. You might even see better performance and gas mileage

Need to know what the Gap for the spark plugs for the 1995 Chevy Caprice Classic, 4.3 L Engine need to be set at for optimal performance.

The gap should be .050. To get better performance go with a better plug but the gap will be the same. In most of the high performance plugs they are pre-gapped but I check anyway.

Where exactly is my 02 Avalanche Thermostat located? And will changing it out to a 180 degree thermostat hurt my performance or make it better?

the thermostat is located on top of your engine block where the upper radiatior hose connects to your engine. typically, changing to a slightly hotter thermostat helps the vehicle burn fuel better resulting in SLIGHLTY better fuel mileage and performance, and better emissions. but if you go TOO hot you may end up looking at predetonation (pinging), so choose wisely.

I'm hitting 96,000 miles and thinking about changing out the spark plugs. I'm looking for more than factory something along the lines of performance. Maybe the e3 plugs! Any advice?

I would stick with the factory recommended aren't going to feel or see much of a performance boost with some exotic or expensive set of plugs - you might be able to measure a spark size difference in a lab, but from the driver's seat....(my opinion is) you're just fooling yourself if you think pricey plugs are making a perceivable difference in performance. If you have a few extra dollars, put it into a high quality air filter - that will give you better airflow & less restriction, and that will give you a better boost for your dollar in the performance section...

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

Can the EGR valve and vacuum mod, as well as the BVSV be elimnated

To begin with, it's illegal to tamper with smog equipment. And, you really wouldn't find any performance improvement in doing so.

Far better to leave the smog equipment as the factory installed it.

If you are looking for better performance, try ignition enhancements, such as split-fire plugs, ignition tuneups, etc.

Changing plugs or flushing the infectors?

Your money is better spent getting some lucas injector cleaner instead of the flush LARGE BOTTLE for about 10 bucks, add 3 ounces for every 10 gallons and this doeas a real good job of cleaning injectors and also lubricating them and the top end. I have a 4.0L ranger w/88K and they are clean, I removed one just to see how it looked and it looked new, no deposits at all.. I put some in monthly and all my cars are performing better MPG wise.. one of them is a 1990 BMW 210K miles and they look almost new. I started using it on the BMW and after the great results there I put it in all my cars like Mom's Castor oil.... Keeps 'em regular.. :o)

Change the plugs... They say they are good to 100K Ok maybe but your fuel mileage will suffer as will your performance..

Sluggish '96 chev 4x4

id start off with a basic tune never know when u first buy a car when this stuff was lasted checked up on..i would first change the fuel filter if its clogged its really going to slow you down..then i would do and oil change to it and maybe the plugs and wires..check all of the fluid levels especially the transmission fluid..if you want to add horsepower and performance i would put better oil better wires and plugs and maybe a k&n filter instead of a paper one..

Power on my 98 4 runner

I've had the same problem with 2 other vehicles. You might want to check to see that you have GOOD plugs and wires. I have had 2 mechanics install cheap plugs and wires and they arc (short out) frequently against the engine block. Have your mechanic install high performance NGK plugs and wires and make sure they are not touching the engine block. They are a bit more expensive, but honestly, you will save the difference in fuel cost in the first couple of weeks.
I did this in my last 2 vehicles and not only did they run much better, they performed better and got significantly better gas mileage.
When I bought my 4runner, it was the first thing I looked for, and they were already installed. It runs like a dream.
