In cars like Toyota which use one coil with two cylinders and "lost spark", AL single platinums quickly deteriorate and effectively become useless. The OBD will show a misfire code for a pair of cylinders first. The plugs are at that point unusable and good for the trash bin. I have read that some Fords show a similar result.

If you want an inexpensive plug, buy simple standard copper core plugs - they will not last as long as the best but will not give you the headaches that the AL single platinums probably will.

      Comments about Autolite Platinum Spark Plug:

      I asked for platinum plugs, I expected to get the bosche +4 or +2, when I looked in the bag I was amazed at the junk that they sold me, they don't even have enough platinum on them to meet the tolerance of the old bosche plugs. Now after installing them they lasted 40 miles and then I got a message that cylinder 3 was misfiring. So time to get some different plugs.

                Unfortunately, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it nor provide you with a 100% answer. We would suggest that you take your vehicle to a certified mechanic for further diagnosis.

                I would recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual for your vehicle. This will have many of the specifications needed for a variety of repairs.
