Spark plugs gap


no engine stated? wow. 3.5L? says no gap settings.
its in the FSM. many cars dont put it in the op guide as the plugs
are rated to 80k miles or more, and is not consider, operator deal.
sadly.
and many folks think the new plugs are set in the factory , WRONG. (comment is for J plugs not surface fire tech)

i see you are there.!
many stores, list it wrongly too.... vast....
but you never said country car was sold.
in the USA we open the hood, look up and behold, its right there.
the vacuum and turn up sticker,
now alldata.com
quotes to follow.........all.
the original equipment spark plugs installed in the Odyssey 3.5L V-6 engine are platinum tip spark plugs, and the plug gap must not be adjusted.
and other warnings, and the no file them warn.g
On CR-V and 4-cylinder Odyssey models, adjust the spark plug gap to 0.039-0.043 inches (1.0-1.1mm). On Odysseys with the V6 engine, check, but do not adjust the spark plug gap. The spark plug gap should be 0.039-0.043 inches (1.0-1.1mm). If the spark plug gap exceeds 0.051inches (1.3mm), replace the spark plug.

so 1mm , if not v6

Need do know the spark plugs gap


If you're replacing the spark plugs in your car engine, you'll need to set the gap before reseating the spark plug. The gap is the distance electricity arcs between the ground electrode and center electrode. The gap must be set correctly to ensure maximum performance. Here's how to set the gap of a spark plug.

  1. Remove the spark plug wires. Use a socket wrench to remove the spark plugs from their chambers.
  2. Clean the spark plug if you are not replacing it with a new one. Remove all dirt and debris from the spark plug.
  3. Check the owner's manual for your car (or any appliance with spark plugs) to find out the recommended gap setting.
  4. Use a gap tool to check the gap of the spark plug. Slip the tool between the ground electrode and center electrode. The gap tool should fit snugly at the recommended gap width indicated on the tool.
  5. Push the tool between the electrodes a few times to ensure proper gap. If the gap is too wide, push the ground electrode firmly against a flat surface to narrow the gap and then check again with the gap tool.
  6. Repeat Step 5 as necessary until you reach the correct gap. Reseat the spark plug and reattach the spark plug wires
Good Luck

I replaced the water pump of my 1995 Saab 900 SE. Since I was there already, I replaced the spark plugs as well. After that I noticed the engine runs rough especially going up hill. All vaccum lines...


It sounds like you may have a vacuum leak at the throttle body, inlet manifold or associated hoses. If there is no leak, recheck the spark plugs to ensure you set the correct gap on the new spark plugs.

If you have plug wires you have a naturally aspirated Saab (non-turbo). The entire ignition system must be checked. First, replace the cap and rotor. They are wear/maintenance parts, are cheap, and can be gotten at most auto parts stores (even for Saab). Next, if the high tension leads (plug wires) had cracks and that is why you taped them up, they MUST be replaced. Mere electrical tape will not prevent voltage leakage through these cracks. Make absolutely certain the plugs are resistor and of the proper specs for your model year and engine and that are gapped dead on to spec. Another common wear part is the cam position sensor (a Hall effect sensor that tells the ECU what position the cams are in). You did not mention whether the CEL light is on or whether you retrieved any codes from the OBD port. Go to Autozone or Advance Auto and let them put a code reader on the port to see if you have any active and stored codes (this is free). Finally, a crankshaft position sensor (crank angle sensor) failure could be imminent. This is a known failure part as well.
