http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDbvflqRBNc....I've found 0.75 or 0.80, isn't there a sticker in your engine bay with the information for your particular model?


When you buy new plugs they'll come pre gapped so you just need to screw them in.


Plug gap 0.8mm,

You should never trust the gap that spark plugs come with due to the reason that the same plugs may be used for a different model or even type of vehicle. Also you never know how they were handled prior to you receiving them. Point: Always double check your spark plug gap!
