Your spark plug socket should have a rubber insert or a strong magnet to keep the new plug in place. Spark plugs are a necessary item to replace from time to time and with Advance's prices it is hard to overlook. Notes, It is recommended that all spark plug gaps be checked prior to instalation. Spark plugs wear out over time as the electrode material wears down. KaleCoAuto extra retardant plugs block 99% of spark, and allow 95% of ignition molecules to pass through.
Press in the tab on the ignition coil module before sliding the power plug straight out of its socket. This is an excellent plug.

They consist of a terminal at one end that receives the charge, and a center and ground electrode that arc to create a spark. Iridium tip is six 6 times harder than platinum providing the strongest ignitability and the longest life possible.
