        Comments about Motorcraft Original Equipment Finewire Single Platinum Spark Plug:

        when changing plugs make sure to change your wires, now i have ran every thing from the Generic(exact) to the OEM(Motorcraft, ACDelco), when ever i can i go with OEM, as i don't have as many problems down the road and they are designed to last to the service change of the spark plugs, after markets just don't seam to last that long

        These are the wrong plugs for a 2003 Ford Ranger Edge 4.0L. You will need the SP-440. If you install these your truck will run horrible. Had to go to ford to find out what the right plugs are.

          these worked really great in my mustang. switched out the bosch plugs that were in it, and wow, the difference speaks for itself. Runs smoother, starts easier, and gas mileage has improved.
