Episode Notes

If you think all spark plugs are the same, then you need to watch this episode! We show you how to properly remove, inspect, clean, and re-install spark plugs. We also take a look at high performance spark plugs and learn why they are so much better.

You may be surprised at the last segment in this episode, which we added well after we wrapped up filming. The remarkable results still hold true, even several more tanks later.

This episode also includes a special segment provided to us by E3 Spark Plugs. It features Stacey David from Gearz TV at Michigan Technological University. Stacey walks us through the University, discussing spark plug technology with several engineers.

  2. We use them in our project vehicles and are extremely happy with them. The test results we showed at the end of this episode are not biased or made up… we see significant results from them time and time again. As with any product, your results may vary, but that is honestly what we’ve experienced.

  3. @Motorztv Can you answer me? Are E3 spark plugs the best or do y’all have to because you are sponsering them? Please and thank you Motorz.

  5. I drive a 2001 Honda Civic EX with 195,000 miles on the engine. The maintenance such as oil changes and air filter and all has been kept up with since it was bought new by the owner before me, however I don’t think the spark plugs were ever replaced or anything, would you recommend these spark plugs for my car?

  7. Did he say how easy it is to change spark plugs? Dude let me bring you my 95 z28 and show me how easy it is!

  8. Spark plugs at an absolute minimum should be changed every 100k miles. Some hardcore folks claim every 30k for copper, 60k for platinum, and 90k for iridium. In my experience a happy medium of 50k for copper you should pop the sparks out to inspect. If they look tore up, changed them out they’re cheap ($20 or so for a set of 4)

  10. It is easy Carpathian, once you drop the motor and subframe out… It all really comes down to price and convienience. Most people would rather pop over to wally’s house an pay 20 bucks for all 4 plugs rather than go to an auto parts store and spend twice as much.

  12. I just found out from my owner’s manual that my vehicle spark plugs are Denso K20TR11 or NGK BKR6EKB11 but i currently have Denso Q16PR-U11 U-Groove installed will that cause any problems to my engine or fuel economy please reply soon i really want to know???

  13. as aposed to taking the head off or changing the altnernator yea its easy lol but really what is “easy” on a car

  14. He’s sponsored for sure, look at the way he spent his time to write it up on the drawing board hahaha.

  15. @Motorztv I heard e3 spark plugs only work well with newer models or certain models, would these work well with a 2001 chevy 4.3 vortec?

  16. LOL, I take that with a grain of salt as a motor sport enthusiast. It’s still kicking, matter of fact it ran circles around a new Mustang the other day and the previous day it had a ZO6 for breakfast.

  17. I see the people that sell them are 10 times out of 10 saying these are great …buy them. But the reviews from the people after they use them (2 out of 10 people are happy) for 3 months they say they are garbage and regret the purchase followed by …”I should have listened”. Id love to try these out but it aint worth $100+ to get a good 3 months of use then be doing diagnostic fees then new spark plugs. I don’t think these are perfected well, that ratio is not good enough for my business.

  18. E3 suck I have used them more then once and yes the Mpgs where better but kept failing and had to keep replacing them!
