There are different gappers for different spark plugs; ask your Parts Pro for the right spark plug gap tool when you buy new plugs.
If you're not sure about the type of gap you need for your plug, your Parts Pro can help with that as well.
Allow the engine to cool before starting. No need for an explanation there.
If you are just returning from PartSource and you want to get started right away, inspect and gap the new spark plugs while the engine cools off. Or kick your feet up and watch a bit of TV.
In case you need them, free print outs of specific vehicle instructions and torque specifications from Mitchell on Demand at your local PartSource store.
Make Safety Your Top Priority
Every vehicle is different. When it comes to maintenance and repairs, always follow the vehicle's owner's manual. Don't work with a Philips when the job calls for a flat. Substituting tools can compromise your safety or your vehicle's performance.
Safety should be your number one priority. Don't smoke, drink alcoholic beverages, or wear a necktie while working on the car. And watch out for hot objects, sharp instruments, hazardous materials and other potential safety hazards in and around your workspace.
Finally, when the fun turns to frustration or if the job requires specialized knowledge beyond your abilities, seek the assistance of a Parts Pro, professional mechanic or installer. The last thing we want is someone getting hurt.
