Default Cerato Spark Plug Size

Hi,

Without having sighted the plugs in my 2004 Cerato I have purchased 4 new ones for the 60,000km service. At first glance these plugs appear much smaller than other plugs I have seen, approx 16mm socket fits them.

Is this correct, please?

Rob.

Thumbs up

That is correct you use the smaller size plug socket. You also need a long extension to get to the plug because they sit down into the head a fair way. the plug that came in my 2005 Cerato is a Champion RC10YC4 gap 1.05mm. It is a good idea to use a small amount of antisieze on the threads when putting the plugs in. Good to help a fellow Aussie Cerato owner. Best of luck.

TAKE YOUR TIME, THINK IT OUT, DO IT RIGHT, DO IT ONCE!! original quote by me as far as I know.

Thanks for the reply, looks like a quick trip to the spares shop before I begin.
