Spark plug quality
« on: 20 March 2017, 14:57 »
Had a slight stutter in higher gears when accelerating, looked high and low for a vac leak but never found one. After changing my plugs the old girl ran fine. However 2months on and the slight missing has returned. I replaced like for like x4 BKR7E £8.40 which is a bargain, my question is what better quality plug can use without paying a silly price.

NGK are normally pretty good. How do the plugs look? Gap setting correct?
Tbh I think you have something else going on.
