    Last spark plugs I'll need to buy

    These are the stock plugs in my '04 Grand Prix. They claim to last 100,000 miles, and they deliver on that promise. After 111,000 miles I decided I should place these before they caused problems. As I pulled out the old plugs I checked each and every one of them. The gap was still perfect, and they hardly looked used at all. I almost put the old plugs back in thinking I could return these, but I realized that this is probably the last time I'll change plugs on this car. Based on the condition of the old plugs, I would give these the highest recommendation. The 3800 motor is known for destroying lessor plugs, but these babies looked like they barely had a few thousand miles on them.

    the original iridium ac plugs lasted 100,000 miles like they should I replaced with advanced ac iridium replacements and had 2 foul out of course it took me months and lots of parts to figure it was the new plugs causing a high end mis-fire, replaced 2 that were bad and now another cylinder mis-firing a plug gone bad I'm sure, why aftermarket original parts don't last?

              These plugs worked just fine in my 1999 Park Ave. They should last 100k in this application. Very similar to the original plugs. As with any spark plug time will tell.

                Own 2005 Chevy Equinox. The Equinox runs better with high quality plugs and wires. I know because there are known problems with OEM plug wires which will electricly breakdown, with as little as 50k miles. This will fool the engine's on-board ECM. Performance will drop, the engine/trans will seem to bog down and/or buck. It seemed like a new engine and trans with new quality wires & plugs. There was a totaly noticable difference of improvement. Stick with the high quality stuff on this Nox!

                            I recently purchased the AC Delco Pro Iridium spark plugs (Part No. 41-101) for my new to me 2005 Chevrolet Equinox with 97000 miles. The OEM plugs were the exact same and upon removing them I noticed that they still had plenty of life left in them despite manufacturers recommendations of 100000 miles. The old plugs came out easily and the new ones went in easy. I noticed a generous increase in power afterwards.

                            Combine the already decent price with a manufacturers rebate of $2.00 per plug and that is an excellent deal!!

                                A:

                                A spark plug part number might fit hundreds of different engines from many different manufacturers. Although the spark plug from the factory will come with a gap to a pre-selected setting, this may not be the right gap for your particular engine. The incorrect plug gap for your engine can contribute to a high rate of misfires, loss of power, plug fouling, poor fuel economy, and accelerated plug wear. It is always best to check the gap against the manufacturer's specifications. If adjusting the gap on fine wire or precious metal plugs such as platinum or iridium be very careful not to apply any pressure or prying force to the fine wire center electrode or insulator as they can be damaged. The gap should be adjusted by only moving the ground electrode.
                                For compatibility of this part with your vehicle, please provide your vehicle make, model and engine specification.

                                No, it is not recommended to use anti-seize on spark plugs period and on Aluminum heads to boot. It may cause fouling, misfire, etc. For any further assistance, please visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.
