Which Spark Plugs Should I Choose For My Vehicle?


[Mechanical SFX] Hey everybody! Dave here, from O’Reilly Auto Parts to talk
about spark plugs.There are a lot of different types out there, so today, I’ll be talking
about a few options, their different features and overall performance. As I walk you through the different spark
plug types you’ll be hearing terms like: copper, platinum, and iridium. These are all metals used in the constuction
of spark plugs. The type of metal can make a huge difference
in both performance and fuel efficiency. Your vehicle’s manufacturer will recommend
a specific spark plug type for your vehicle, but it’s always okay to upgrade. Here are the different metals available. Let’s start with copper spark plugs. Formulated for reliable performance in all
conditions, copper plugs are known to deliver quick starts, smooth acceleration, and good
fuel economy for older cars, trucks, and small engines. Next, we have platinum spark plugs. With a platinum tip that helps eliminate gap
erosion. These plugs are designed to fire more quickly
and cleanly for improved starting and acceleration as well as fuel economy and emissions. One of the outstanding features of our 3rd
option, double platinum spark plugs, is platinum to platinum firing. It’s the preferred technology for DIS engines,
or ingnition systems without a distributor. Double platinum plugs provide faster starts
and quicker acceleration, better fuel economy and improved durability. And we’ve saved the best for last. Iridium spark plugs are among the most technologically advanced spark plugs available on the market today. In fact, most late model vehicles include
this type of plug from the manufacturer. The design of iridium spark plugs delivers
better overall ignitability and optimum performance. Including outstanding acceleration, high fuel
efficiency, and maximum durability. Your local O’Reilly Auto Parts store stocks
a full selection of spark plugs for your vehicle. And of course, you can also find them all
