Oh jeez I had a issue with spark arching from the coil packs and replaced the plugs just to get by till payday then I plan on replacing plugs/wires and even coil because I believe its carbon tracked but asking the autozone guy to double check the plug gap for bosch super copper plugs and he put 0,44" on the box.Looking through the fsm it states the spark plug gap is 0.27 - 0.31" that's a huge difference!

What makes this confusing is the fact autozones gap recommendations should be from the plug manufactuer,But with the fsm there are so many plugs on the market I find it hard to believe they all run the same gap (there was over 12 plugs just for this rio at autozone) that being said maybe the fsm is referring to the plug gap of what oem plug comes factory with the rio?

So what are you guys gapping at?If you have bosch supers (the cheapo ones) especially chime in.

i'm running .029

i split the difference in the FSM. regardless of plug, if it can be gapped you should run the fsm.
