Re: Spark plug torque (carmonkey)

A Lot just say once You hand tighten to 1/4 - 1/3 Turn to Crush Washer .

Are You using - Anti-Seize ?

Installing New , or just checking - adjusting and Re-Installing ?

Re: Spark plug torque (EngTech)

I just installed my new plugs at 47,000 miles. I used a torque wrench, as I have a tendency to overtighten things. the insulators had a nice golden hue. There was some carbon buildup at the bottom of the threads. The gaps were a little larger, but nothing out of the ordinary. I always use anti-seize.
I have to say the engine no longer vibrates at 1900 rpm !!! and feels peppier.

Yeah , New Plugs Really do Smooth and Pep things Up.

I Found the Same thing - Robots and Check Items , but the Lead Threads
Could be 2.5 Turns - On the NO GO - Gage , which 3 Turns is Max and the Robot♦

Couldn't Tell , or the Programmers , just thought the Tooling would Hold Longer as for - ( The Threads - having Carbon a Few Threads in ).

Real Humans - wouldn't have Let that Go , You'd Only allow 1 Turn on the Lead in . Especially Knowing that Heads are going to be
Subjected to Severe - Conditions .

Say what? What do you mean with the robot stuff? Translation would be appreciated as I'm somewhat of a tech noob!
