Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Ninety Eight Regency

1 Answer

Does it matter what kind of spark plug that you can use in a 1995 oldsmobile 98? What is the gap setting?

We are using AC Delco spark plugs, and the setting is .060. The car is running rough after they were put in.

andersonltam: OOPS! Don'tfeel bad it's a common problem. First we have to get you oriented in front of the vehicle and give you some reference points so that we are talking apples and apples OK?
Standing directly in front of you vehicle, hood up and looking at the motor, the engine sits "Transversely" (SIDE WAYS") HMM they keep doing that!
Starting with the cylinders on the front side of the motor closest to the radiator, they are
numbered as followed. To your left is #2 cylinder, the center is # 4 and the right is # 6
So the layout is even on one side and odd on the other.
On the back side you have the same configuration: # 1 cylinder is to your left, # 3 is in the center and # 5 is on the right.
back of car
(1) (3) (5)
2
to #1 cyl > 1 3 <(Dist cap)
6 4
5
( 2) (4) (6)
Front of Car

This illustration was a close as I could get using what I had, but I think you have a 99.9%
chance of figuring it out...... If you don't I'll be watching... Let me know how I did......

Spark plug gap


if it is a 4.0 liter the gap is .050" for factory plugs
if it is a 3.5 liter the gap is also 050", this gap is for factory AC Delco plugs, I don't recommened any other brands due to rough idle problems with some of them.

Ac delco says .40 gap, champion says .60 gap why is that?


It doesn't matter what either one of them said. On my car it recommends a .45 gap, I run mine at .32 as it gets a better spark using less energy to jump the gap. On a self inductive ignition system, a good spark is very important. If this were my car, I would drop it down to .35 and the plugs will last longer, and have better performance. There is absolutely no reason you should EVER gap them at .60. This is a low RPM motor, so .40 would be ok, but I would personally put them at .35, and roll with it.
