I'm not trying to be smart, I thought maybe you did not notice he had a 3.0l and I just remembered seeing a 3.0 in a Q about heater hoses. Have a good Holiday.

i just recently replaced my sparkplugs with bosch platinum plus plugs and the autozone website said they were a fit to my 02 4.0 but nobody said anything about gapping them when i bought them. Idk if i just made a big mistake or what. Im 19 and just really recently started to really try and learn a little bit about cars...

You're fine, single node plugs used to have an issue with the box being dropped and getting bent out of spec, but now they come with collars to protect them. So you're good.

Default Re: Spark Plug Help

After reading all the posts on this subject I could find, I decided to do the 100,000 mile spark plug, plug wire and PCV valve change myself on my 2000 V6 3.0L FF Ranger. I did not feel like paying the dealer about 250.00 or 300.00 dollars to do it. I posted the information about the PCV on another thread. As far as changing the plugs and wires: I decided to go with the Autolite XP103 Iridium plug. I used the medium level 27.00 dollar wire set from Autozone. I went slow to make sure I did everything right. It took me about 2.5-3.0 hours. The biggest problem was pulling the old plug wires off. Most of them seemed to be glued to the plug and the internal parts of the wire stayed on the plug. Removing the plugs was not a problem, and I used a piece of fuel hose to screw in all the new plugs which went very well. As far as the plug wire, the lengths of the new wire did not completely correspond with the old wire and I had to exchange some of them out later due to excessive length of some of them. The only other interesting aspect was the old plugs which have been on the vehicle for ten years and 100,000 miles. The motorcraft plugs were very clean, almost white on the ignition end. The strange thing was the plug gaps on most of the old plugs were about twice the recommended gap of .044 I set for the new plugs. Not sure how my PU passed the state emission inspection the last few years. After change, my PU is running much better. Will have to see of the gas mileage improves?
