How to rule out a Spark Plug as your problem
A very simple but highly effective method which I have always used to
confirm if a spark plug is/is not the cause of engine starting and/or
performance problems. Why run to the store and buy a new spark plug as a
gamble, which may not be inexpensive, when you can verify if the plug is
the problem using your digital multimeter. Save time and money!
I decided to upload this video when I discovered that not too many people
knew about this simple spark plug test.

When to Change Spark Plugs In Car?
When to change spark plugs in my car? Do you know how you can tell if the
spark plugs or spark plugs wires have ever been changed before? Maybe you
just bought a used car and are unsure if the tune up parts have been
changed, or maybe you just forgot when you had a tune up...if ever. Watch
this video to learn a few good tips
As my general rule of thumb, I like to change spark plugs (on vehicles from
2005 with platinum tip spark plugs) between 80,000-100,000 miles unless
there is a problem and a spark plug fails or there is an engine missfire
If you have conventional spark plug wires, then I would recommend you
change them at 80,000 miles and replace the spark plugs at that time as
well. Most spark plug wires fail/break down under extreme load like
pulling a boat or trailer or they just overheat because they are laying on
or too close to the hot engine parts which melts them.

Quick Tip-Throttle Cleaning - EricTheCarGuy
This one goes out to BowlingBallOut who posted a question about a sticky
throttle on his Saturn. It was a great question so I decided to make this
video in response to it. There are many different configurations of
throttle assemblies but for the most part if you have a throttle that is
sticking you might be able to fix it using the procedures in this video. I
am aware you may not able to purchase spray throttle cleaner in some states
now but I'm sure they have some alternative available at your local parts
One very important note here is that if you have a drive by wire throttle
(DBW), then I do NOT recommend this procedure. If you perform this
procedure on a DBW throttle body you may need to have the throttle reset in
order to get your engine to idle or even start. I only recommend this
procedure if you're trying to correct a problem with a sticking throttle.
If you have idle problems, I recommend you check out this article on my

Another few precautions when changing plugs on aluminum heads:
"When changing spark plugs, wait until the engine has cooled to remove the
plugs. This is very important with aluminum cylinder heads because it
reduces the risk of damaging the threads in the cylinder heads when the
plugs come out (aluminum is a much softer metal than cast iron)."
"Most threads on spark plugs for engines with aluminum heads are either
precoated to reduce the risk of thread damage, or the plug shell is made of
a nickel alloy. If the plug shell is black or plain steel, however, you
should put some antiseize to the threads, and reduce the applied torque by
about 30 to 40%."
"Do not use antiseize if the plug shell is nickel or has been precoated.
Antiseize acts like a lubricant and may allow too much torque to be applied
to the plugs, damaging the treads in the cylinder head."
