    AVOID THESE FOR TOYOTA AND SIMILAR

          Comments about Autolite Single Platinum Spark Plug:

          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.

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