Hey there guys,
Over the weekend I just bought new spark plugs (NGK..I'm not sure of the # right now) and I was wondering what the gap is supposed to be. Do they come pre-gapped...the box doesn't say anything about it?
And not that I'm trying to suck up or anything ( lol (, I am really proud of this site and all of you who made it. I review it almost every day and tell all my buddies about it...they all dig the sixer.
Thanks Guys (and Girls)

no they probably dont come pregapped...the gap on the mx is .44, just get a sparkplug tool...its real easy.

Thanks a lot!

Thanks everybody. I'm going to install them tonight (I suppose you can all tell I'm a complete novice)...by the way, do you think a .44 gap is ok for the 4 cyl?
I couldn't find a definitive page on it.

i think your user manual for the car should have the gap in the reference pages...mine does

Plug gap for the 2.0L is 0.040"-0.043". Usually, plugs come pre-gapped but they should be double-checked before installation.

Use anti-seize compound on the threads. Tighten to 11-16 ft-lbs (15-22 N.m). Do not overtighten.
