Spark Plug Replacement

Well, just get to service my car last Friday, odometer reading 19,700km. First time using Castrol Magnatec and it feels much smoother now. I bought a set of original Hyundai spark plug yesterday at PH Auto and I faced some difficulties in loosening the stock spark plug. So today I headed to my mechanic for spark plug replacement. Mechanic found out one of the new spark plugs has error in gap (It's supposed to be 1.1mm). He corrected the gap and proceed with loosening the spark plug, with ease, using 1/2" drive ratchet wrench and 5/8" spark plug socket. Engine feels much smoother and less vibration now. Here's how my stock spark plug looks like after being used for almost 20,000km.

A new set of high performance plugs can really make a big difference to the throttle response, economy and overall running of an engine, regardless of what car it is...

irty spark plugs are the result of the insulating noses at the firing tips getting clogged with debris, such as carbon, oil and fuel.
