      These plugs put new life into my old truck, I could hear the difference the minute I started it up after changing them. Plus they were half the price of other platinum plugs

        Comments about Autolite Platinum Spark Plug:

        When I have changed plugs before, naturally the motor will run better. This time I bought 6 Motorcraft plugs w/new wires and suddenly a high speed bucking began but the truck ran way better. Knowing that plugs and wires are usually the guilty suspect. After checking my new wires which were fine, I bought 6 new Autolites AP105 and replaced the new Motorcraft plugs which one had a crack around the insulator, and what a difference there was on cold starts,power and fuel consumption. My first time of physically doing a full field test the new plugs. Only thing I can say is"REMARKABLE!!" Made me a believer my Ford 4.0 needs Autolite without a doubt.

              I don't have any complaints about these plugs. They give you a three (3) years warranty for defects! I have been able to see a difference in the running of my vehicle and gas mileage. Overall a good product. I would buy them again instead of OEM.

                  I have a 1996 Ford Explorer 4wd with a 4.0 engine. Does this plug replace a MOTOCRAFT pltatinum sp-486 (AGSF42FM)? Since they were installed my engines performance has deminished and my mpg's have decreases from 18 mpg to about 11 mpg.
