Sure, I'll give an assessment about those plugs, since I do drive a lot. I still am looking around for the interval of these Ruthenium plugs though. Spark plugs is an easy job on any vehicle unless the engineers overengineered the dang thing.
I never bothered to even do any adjustment when I changed the sparks for the old Accord, but then I was using the forums to help guide me for the job. It ran fine and normal as usual, but I am not sure if the new sparks needs to be adjusted if I order the correct gapping and specs of the spark plugs.casperfun wrote: ↑Sat Oct 05, 2019 10:55 amI was really ignorant about spark plugs.
Just took them out the box and installed them.
Thought it would be fine that way.
Didn't really think about the tip, measuring, or adjusting it for the rogue.
My knowledge was basic.
But NOWWW I know by viewing some YouTube videos.
But it's too late since I installed them long ago.
Everything seems ok.
Rockauto now lowered the price for the Ruthenium plugs to like $7 a plug, so I am tempted to pull the trigger on them. But I gotta wait for like 2 more months so that my Rogue hits 105k miles, since I am at 100k miles.casperfun wrote: ↑Fri Oct 18, 2019 2:24 pmBought a set of 4 NGK laser iridium spark plugs for $59.99 back in 2017.
Way better deal then my local dealership.
They work great I assume, since the original versions I replaced still looked in exceptional shape after 8 years. So I just kept the old ones in the cabinet. Only used them for half the mileage of it's potential capacity.
Probably could have run those for the past decade.
........ +1 that these seem to last and look better after many years of use.
They are in the middle of the price spectrum, the NGK iridium plugs that is, but OEM is always an arm and leg for 4 plugs, but OEM will even ask for your first born child (second and third born) depending if the vehicle has 6 or 8 or 10 or 16 cylinders, as they are roughly $20 per plug.
I always DIY my plugs, its just I don't understand why and how Nissan makes a simple easy job a billion times harder and difficult.
