Generally speaking, 0.039-0.044 is a decent range for platinum or copper. Iridium fine-wire plugs generally should not be gapped by a novice since it could be easy to bend or damage the electrode. However, with some care, the IR plugs can be gapped down to around 0.032-0.034 if desired. The reality however is that Iridium plugs are great in terms of lifespan and consistency, but also (usually) the most expensive when compared to other popular choices. But from a realistic staindpoint, a quality platinum plug will perform very well and last quite a long time as well, for half the price. I would stay away from copper in this application (unless you are "racing" and plan on changing plugs all the time) because the ignition system is a little agressive for daily driving in terms of plug life, therefore copper, although it is the best conductor out of the bunch, will burn itself up a little too fast to be reliable for long-term use.

Spark plug gap for 1997 mitsubishi trition 2.4 petrol ute

Spark plug gap does not effect the engine timing so it's not that critical. Thirty 5 (.035) should work just fine.
Otherwise consult a service manual fro your model or call a Mitsubishi service centre

1999 eclipse gs wont start but will crank over

There are 3 main things an engine needs to run, compression, fuel, spark, all at the right time. The easiest thing to check would be fuel and spark. Spray some staring fluid into the intake and see if the engine will try to start on that. If it does, then you know you have a fuel issue. If it doesn't, then test the spark. You can get a spark tester for about $5 at any auto part store. You just plug your spark plug wire on to it, clip it to a metal surface, then try to start engine while watching the gap on the tester for a spark to jump. You should get a good blue spark jumping the gap. If you have spark and it didn't run on the starting fluid, then you should do a compression test. Try the first two test before we get into compression testing. Another thing I would like to know is if you had any symptoms before this happened, like the service engine light was on, the car would buck, the car would run strange, or any other driveability issues before the car wouldn't start.

I have replaced the camshaft sensor, Crankshaft sencor, computer, crankshaft pully, and new spark plugs on my 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse and it still won't start, what could it be?

Engine needs spark, fuel and air to run. I assume the starter is turning the engine over. Have you verified you have spark at the plugs? Have you verified you have fuel pressure? Can you hear the fuel pump when you first turn the ignition key? If, yes to those, check the timing belt settings to make sure something hasn't caused the timing to change.

I have a 99 eclipse 2.0 manual. It has a rough idle when u slowly give it gas it seems to run ok. But when u give it gas fast it flutters and bogs down and will not get up and go. I changed the spark plugs...

Have gapped the spark plug? Adjust the timing? If haven;t done these, my advise would be to bring ur car to a mechanic and adjust the timing and set the gap of the plugs!

My 2001 mitsubishi eclipse gt stalls when i come to a stop. Runs great and does not stall when cold. will cleaning the throttle body fix this issue?

Air & Fuel Filter check, Check the gap on your spark plugs. Heat makes metal contract and the cold makes it expand
