Comments about Motorcraft Original Equipment Finewire Single Platinum Spark Plug:
I had installed another brand of platinum plugs in a friend's car about 30,000 miles ago. The owner said her car was no longer starting as quickly as it used to and, being familiar with her car, I agreed.
I removed all the old plugs from the four cylinder 4AF engine and checked them. They were not fouled and looked ok. I almost put them back in again because they were supposed to be good for 55,000 miles, but at the last minute I decided to buy new plugs and experiment to see if it made a difference in ease of starting.
I was amazed at the variety of plugs Advance lists on their web site, pages and pages of them. I tried to find plugs constructed similarly to the ones used previously as I had always been very pleased with those but they no longer seem to be made in that style by that manufacturer.
I found plugs made by Motorcraft and the price was less than most of the other platinum plugs listed and I knew Motorcraft to be a reliable brand so I finally decided on those.
Yes, the new Motorcraft plugs did make a difference and her car starts instantly now! She is very pleased!

Q:what is the spark plug gap
A:The gap in a spark plug is a tiny space for the spark to arc in between the two pieces of metal to ignite the air and gas mixture in the engine cylinder. The majority of the time, spark plugs come pre-gapped. However, the initial suggested settings for spark plug gaps are: Single plug : 0.028 - 0.032", Dual plug : 0.025 – 0.030".
