What is the recommended spark plug for a 2000 2.4 litre grand am...? Thanks.

According to my '99 owner's manual & http://www.ngksparkplugs.com:

2.4L L4 engine= Gap: 0.050" (1.27mm)
3.4L V6 engine = Gap: 0.060" (1.52mm)


Edit:
For 2.4L L4 engine

My owners manual lists AC Type 41-942 (Platinum Plug) Gap: 0.050" (1.27mm).
But http://www.acdelco.com says AC Delco part # 41-942 spark plug, platinum plug is GAP .060" without RPO (RC9).

Need to know gap for bosch Platinum+2


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.

What is the spark plug gap for a 1996 Ford Ranger 3.0? When purchasing the plugs I was informed it was .44. but I am getting a slight back fire when engine is running.


0.042-0.046 is the correct gap for your spark plugs,If it is backfiring now and was not before make sure you were not sold platinum bosch plugs and if you are using factory plugs,then I be looking for a faulty spark plug.Also make sure the firing order is correct.ramundoo_2.gif

Misfiring after replacement of spark plugs and wires


If it wasn't misfiring before. Make sure you have the proper gap on the spark plugs. Make sure you have the wires connected in the correct order. If you have the old wires, you may want to end up trying those one at a time to make sure you don't have a defect wire either.
Thank you,
Lee

Changed timing belt on my 99 ford escort zx2 car no


if you have a no spark scenario i would check your crank sensor located at the top left side of the harmonic balance pulley.the crankshaft (about 11'oclock) a 2 wire plug with a sensor on it check to see if it is damaged or unsecured. this sensor can cause no spark if not working correctly. This sensor is based of frequency not voltage testing is difficult, just make sure that there isnt too muck air gap. and that it is secured.Lastly may want to check timing possible that the belt has jumped some teeth and she has fallen out of timing. maybe a bad tensioner The coil will adapt i think up to 10 degree, ****** or advance. Good luck
