Each of your car's cylinders has a spark plug. This component is basically a plug with electrodes where sparks jump in order to ignite the mixture or air and fuel fed to the engine. Without your spark plugs, your car would not run even it has a full tank of gas. Of course, the spark plugs only start to produce those sparks once the ignition key is turned on. A problematic spark plug will make an engine stall, be sluggish, and lose momentum when running. So, before you get annoyed with the low performance of your engine, replace your old spark plugs first with those from E3. But before buying its product, let us first see what it has got.
- With copper electrode core
- With nickel electrode tip
- Resistor type
- With 18mm reach size, 14mm thread size, and 1.016mm gap size
- Comes with a five-year or 100,000-mile E3 limited warranty
We tested this component on a 2006 Pontiac GTO and a 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser, and here is what we have to say:
- The product generally had a good appearance. The tip was clean, the gap seemed appropriate, and the material used was of good quality.
- Installing the product was done without any hassle. We finished the entire procedure in less than forty-five minutes for the GTO.
- We ran the GTO for thirty minutes around town to check for any improvement in performance. The vehicle had a good, quick start. We noticed a stronger torque, especially when approaching inclines. Also, idle and acceleration became smoother, if not the same. The changes were actually very minimal on these departments. When it came to fuel economy, the GTO ran for longer miles with every quarter of a gallon of gasoline. Emissions were also better.
- After the drive with the GTO, we checked the condition of the spark plugs. The electrodes had no ashy and oily deposits on them.
- This spark plug had a heat range that was hotter than what was required for the FJ Cruiser. The manufacturer said that it would fit the said vehicle, though. We took the components off of the cylinders of the FJ Cruiser after smelling something strong out of the engine seconds after we hit the ignition.
This spark plug is actually very affordable apiece. With a handsome warranty to boot, this E3 spark plug is definitely a good one to try. Just make sure that your unit is appropriate to the make, model, and year of your vehicle in order to prevent damaging your engine and voiding your warranty.
