Great video Scotty! I used to work at autozone and half the time my coworkers had no clue about spark plugs so they would just recommend the most expensive ones and then customers come back pissed off finding out their cars run worse than their used set of plugs😅😅

Scotty Kilmer Hello I have a 2012 Nissan Sentra 4cyl 2.0 engine and had a mechanic change my spark plugs and coils and now my car shakes. What would be the best spark plugs for me? I had codes of P0304, P0171,P0011, P1148. Help please. I would finally like to drive my car it’s been a pain since I bought it in May. 😫 Thank you

Scotty Kilmer Hi Scotty I have a 2017 Honda Accord sport special edition 2.4L and I wanna ask Do we have to adjust the rocker arms gaps at all?! My mechanic has only Toyota synthetic0w20 same grade as Honda so can I use this oil cuz it has the same specs. Trying to find the pcv valve hose to install an oil catch can but it seems hiding somewhere. Any help to find it?! Thank u

One other tip don't use spark plugs designed for small engines in a car and vice versa because they're different lengths for different applications.

The OEM AC Delco Iridium plugs in my Chevy Cruze lasted well over 100k miles before the car began to misfire. Replaced them with OEM's. More than happy with their lifespan!

If you are going to leave the spark plugs in for a long time, be sure to use anti-seize grease on the threads.

I tried for hours trying to replace the spark plugs in my UK Mondeo. It was driving me crazy until I remembered it's a diesel..

Thanks for opening your big mouth, Scotty. My local Kia dealer in Phoenix must have watched this video because I just paid $86 out the door for FOUR sparkplugs for my 4 banger Sportage. How much is Kia paying you?:-)

Years ago there was a recurrent problem in VW beetles if someone installed Champion spark plugs, the most popular brand back then. They were a hair longer than the stock Bosch plugs and after they had been in there a few years, would build up hard deposits on the end that would chew out the threads in the aluminum head when you unscrewed the plug.

Ever since then I use the same make of plugs the car came with, AC for GM, Autolite for Ford, Bosch for German cars, Nippon Denso for Japanese cars.

Thanks for the info, re-enforced what I thought about keeping everything stock that I can. The systems today don't accept many of the hotrod stuff.

Of your vehicle has two fans (one is meant for the ac) make sure it is kicking in and staying on. I had the same problem and it was the AC fan.

i bought a set of NGK iridiums when i got my van 12 years ago. i took one look under the hood and said "nope." i did eventually change out cylinder 1 just last month after 6 months of misfires, but i still have 3 plugs sitting on my desk and no clue where the other 4 have gone. whoever decided that half the engine should be under the cab deserves to be beaten.

Car builders are idiots, you have to break down the half car to change parkplugs or ligth bulbs. I know a Mercedes owner, had to pay 700 Euro for changing a xenon ligth bulb. Insane. I HAVE A 30 YR OLD MERCEDES W123 , YOU CAN DO EVERYTHING YOURSELF.

-I used Autozone's database to get basic AC Delco plugs for my Saab. $12 for 4 plugs. Ran like garbage. Bought exact same NGK the car came with. $43 (ouch!) for 4. 2 years later haven't had a problem since. Why Autozone, why?
-agree on V6 manifold. Same procedure with my old Mazda 6 V6 that uses Ford's Duratec 3.0L. Jotted up a list of gaskets and parts ended up doing spark plugs, coils, upper manifold gaskets and PCV valve all in one sitting with comfort of never having to do it again.

Only issue is the longer they stay in the more they may fuse the treads. I put anti seize on the thread.
Chuck Hallowell
Chuck Hallowell - 3 days ago
Modern spark plugs such as the BOSCH Double Iridium, are plated to stop the threads from galling. USE NO ANTI-SEIZE !! A drop of Synthetic Motor Oil , if you think you MUST have a thread lubricant. Anti-seize is NOT USED due to the possibility of shorting the plug gap, and causing an expensive do-over.

I am shocked scotty,,ive mechanicd all my life,,,platinum plugs are overpriced junk,,when i had my shop i refused too install platinum plugs,,autolite copper core outlast and outperform platinum any day of tye week,,i had several customers come back shortly after a tuneup with their engine missing,,installed autolite coppercore problem solved,,ive not tried irridium,,but my autolites work well and see no reason to change,,man scotty i thought you were a seasoned auto mechanic,,,no good mechanics ive spoken too would ever claim a platinum plug will outperform or outlast an autolite copper core,,,im dissapointed in you scotty i thought you were more knowledgable than that
dave strom
dave strom - 2 days ago
Then why when i install platinum plugs in a vehicle the customer is back within a month with an engine miss ?? Install new plugs no miss,,have a look at the platinum plug thats missing an the damn electrode in the ceramic is no longer visible,,i could give a fuk less what science says ,,i give a fuk about what actually works

Dear Dave -- Your total lack of knowledge regarding Spark Plugs is absolutely staggering !! You are entitled to your opinion, but you don't get to make up your own "facts". FACT is that an Autolite Copper Core plug is inferior in every measurable characteristic to an Autolite Platinum plug -- and, a Bosch Double Iridium plug is superior to them both. Who says so !?? Scotty Kilmer, Me, and SCIENCE, that's who !!

Nice made up story about the plugs that were too long. The noise would have stopped immediately, not after a day or so.

Change your carburator first. Before changing the sparkplugs

wilson2000t - 5 days ago
Scotty: What's your advice for using anti-seize compound on replacement plugs? Especially with 100K iridium plugs, the longer a plug is in, the more likely it will be difficult to remove. But, Some mechanics fear the heat dissipation is reduced by the anti-seize compound. I go with a light coat of anti-seize.
