            Comments about NGK V-Power Spark Plug:

            I just put these in yesterday 05/07/2015 and my truck said Aahhh you should have replaced these old plugs last year. 3 months ago my truck started bucking going uphill at around 1500 RPM's and I would downshift and it would go away. I was told by a few people that it sounded like the fuel pump was going bad so yep I bought and changed the fuel pump - didn't help!!! Then I was told it may be the fuel injectors getting plugged so I bought some fuel injector cleaner and Boooo my problem was getting worse. I had already checked for vacuum leaks and no luck. I was also told it could be a coil going bad so I thought well I'll buy these plugs and change them out and can check my coils while I'm in there. I found out that most of the so-called 100,000 mile plugs were burnt down way past the gap requirement with only about 40,000 miles on them. Let's just say my truck is running great after installing these plugs. I didn't receive any codes from my truck either so I was a little lost at figuring this out.

            Nothing special to note. Just a basic change of spark plugs to help a small engine rough idle. Factory OEM plugs.

                Hi Dan, I'm glad to assist you. With economical performance and improved ignitability over OE Nickel NGK Spark Plugs, V-Power is original equipment manufacturer - and racer-approved. It has lowers ignition system voltage requirements, greater ignitability and performance over. The Iridium spark plugs are designed specifically for the performance enthusiast. It offers extreme ignitability, improved throttle response and superior anti-fouling.

            • Q:

              this plug is preset for your application from NGK. gap is set at sweet spot for best condition's of your truck or car. but yes you can change gap if you like it to not run at best and make it less instead,lower gas mileage too.yep go right ahead,but result will be a down turn too. not sure why you would want a plug that runs at its best sweet spot. but heck they only waist money so you could of had the best too. it your doing.
              ase certified mechanic. have a good one.

                I would go for the gap that is stated on engine decal under hood. I found that it works best for my jeep. My Jeep ( liberty 3.7 ) calls for a gap of .40 on engine decal

            • Q:

              The gap on these are .044 and the spark plug gap that the JEEP manual call for is .042. Can the gap be adjusted.

              • A:

                Gaps are preset. Many plugs have a gap range that will work at the best level. For a example one of the plugs we test, can have a range of .95 to 1.00 mil. So yes that gap is good.
