    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:

        I have been using NGK spark plugs for over 20 years. I've never had one issue pertaining to them at all. I do routine mileage maintenance every 50,000, but most of the time. I really don't even need to replace the ones that I currently have installed because they are still in terrific shape. Like the saying goes " you get what you pay for"... I think they are worth every penny. You have to remember, if you're driving a SUV , it's not intended to do a 1/4 mile in 6 seconds. Most likely will only see continued great idle and fuel mileage. These are great plugs hands down. !

                    I bought these spark plugs to chase a misfire. They didn't fix the problem(wasn't the problem) but after I fixed the problem they seemed to work just fine. I've seen a slight improvement in a acceleration over my ac Delco ones. Alright came pre gapped and spark length and tread length were right for a 3800 series 2 motor. No complaints and would recommend

                        There are usually 2 sizes and you should need the smaller sized one. This special sized plug socket usually comes in a socket set.
