Thereof, are Motorcraft spark plugs gapped?
I called the vendor I bought them from, Motorcraft and a parts store, and they all said they are pre-gapped platinum spark plugs and not to try and re-gap them. They said re-gaping a platinum spark plug can damage the platinum coating, hence the reason they are sold pre-gapped.
Furthermore, can you gap double platinum spark plugs? The double platinum Motorcraft plugs are excellent, and can be gapped as well. Don't force anything - just bend the side electrode carefully.
In this regard, are pre gapped spark plugs good?
Autolite spark plugs traditionally leave the factory pre-gapped for their most popular application. However, a plug may fit hundreds of engines, from cars to golf carts. Gapping the plugs to your engine's specifications is important to prevent pre-ignition, detonation, fouling and poor fuel economy.
Do you have to Gap ACDelco spark plugs?
A: Yes. When ACDelco spark plugs are manufactured, they are pre-gapped to the correct gap specification. A: Not always, but you should inspect your spark plug wires for wear when replacing your spark plugs. Refer to your vehicle owner's manual or contact the manufacturer for more information.
