1.4 16v 75bhp Spark plug gaps?

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what the gap measurements should be? Replacing the plugs and not familiar with this engine. ( I tried the search but not joy) 

Cheers.

Plug gaps are not as critical as people think... usually about 0.8mm does the trick. 0.6-2.0 will work. Plug temperature will affect performance though. I like to run a plug with a heat rating one hotter than standard. Means you can run a bit richer for fractionally more power when you remap- and no plug fouling. Nice clean plugs even when rich, because the extra heat prevents the soot from sticking. Changing plug leads and ends don't have any effect unless the original ones are faulty.

Reasonably sure they come in the box with 1.0mm gap, but I'd be aiming at 0.8mm. gap increases with wear. A slightly hotter plug is a good idea too.
