Hi guys, I myself do not have a Kia, but my girlfriend just picked up a 2001 Kia Rio with an automatic transmission. The car has around 45k miles on it, so I figured it is about time to change the plugs :D

What do you guys recommend running on her car, platinum or copper, and also, what is the correct gap supposed to be?

thanks in advance :D

the gap is listed in the manual, mine states the gap should be

0.028 - 0.032 in (0.7 - 0.8 mm) with type NGK BKR6E

If I had realized how easy it was to change the plugs in this, I would have done it myself with platinums. Since I didn't have time, I just took it to the dealer. Would have saved myself $87........

Any way, good luck!

your not going to be boosting or squeezing so i say say money and use oem replacements. if not i would say to use Iridium plug by denso(thats what we have in our turbo charged rio). But the plugs cost about 12 dollars each.

so i would recommend these
