THE plug for GM 3800's

If you have a 3800 (GM motor), this is the plug to buy. These plugs give a smooth idle, good performance and gas mileage, and last 25,000+ miles.

    Comments about NGK V-Power Spark Plug:

    On my 1994 Ford ranger V6 these Plugs had been in for three years + do too pure laziness. As I pulled each plugged out and inspected them? Extraordinarily clean, like they had only been in maybe 30 days. I did not really have to change them out. But I did any ways.There a perfect replacement for when you cannot afford $6. platinum plugs. I was totally amazed how clean they actually were.I kid you not! As MY 1994 Ranger has over 350,000 miles on it. I have a set in my 1994 dodge worked van? V6 as well. So I'm curious on the shape those are in as well. As it has not been tuned up and over two years. It still runs perfectly smooth as well as a Ford ranger from the very first day of installing the parts.Even with all the crummy gas they sell today. The only thing I do different is gap the plugs 10k over recommended specifications.

      1997 4.6L (w) V8 F-150 installation vehicle. The truck has 300K+ and was suffering from loss of power and a slight miss. It's used frequently for extremely safe, legal driving. And Less frequently for extremely hard and hot driving. Chose to replace all the plugs. Plugs are pregapped at .06, installation varies by make and model. They showed a considerable improvement in power and mileage. Without any noticeable deficiencies. Burned them up now 7 months later (50+ miles a day) on my way to buy another set.

              1st time using NGK with auto engine. Have had them on small motors for decads, works fine. Wish you could get a Delco part at this price. All plugs where within .008 of correct gap out of box.

                  Hi Dan, I'm happy to help you! You'll need 6 of these NGK V-Power Spark Plug - Part No. 3951 for 1996 Chevrolet Blazer 4.3L. It is essential to tighten a spark plug to the specified turning angle or torque setting. First, screw in the plug finger tight until the gasket meets the cylinder head. Then seat the plug/gasket with a torque or turning an angle wrench as specified in your owner's manual.
