4 Cylinder 8 spark plugs?

Asked by May 19, 2017 at 12:36 PM about the 1998 Mazda B-Series Pickup 2 Dr B2500 SE Standard Cab SB

Question type: General

I am learning how to fix up my car on my own and went to change the parks
plug wires on my 4 cylinder engine, and noticed there are 8 spark plugs. I was
just wondering why, if that is normal? What do the other 4 do?

All 8 plugs serve the same purpose, a few manufactures tried that to optimize spark for more power and fuel economy.

right, some models got the duel plug per cylinder engine. so 2 plugs per cylinder equals 8. So get the correct set of wires.
