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.

KML Saprk Plug Modification Nascar 1
Discovered today to help people with tune ups and running cleaner. Save gas
remove pre heater and get good gas milage. I have yet to test it on a ODB2
system. The vehicle runs great I can squeel tires on my little 285,456
miles truck. It's runs like it's new again. I figure we can keep the
chamber clean by blowing at better compression and clean off the carbon
level this way. You must use KML for this to take effect atleast on the
main connection of the distributer coil form the starter coil. The ssytem
runs now 20-45% Cooler on the engine heat guage now. You must hit the gas
when starting only. Becarefull speeding down the road because it's easy
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.
