Spark Plug Product Groups

Single platinum - Used in conventional distributor-equipped and coil-on-plug ignition systems, these plugs offer 60,000- to 100,000-mile service intervals.

Double platinum - Used for distributorless ignition systems, these plugs improve performance, resist erosion and offer 100,000-mile service intervals.

Finewire platinum - Our latest advance, these top-quality plugs offer more platinum to reduce fouling firing voltage, and provide higher service intervals.

Non-extended tip - Used for most older model car engines, some current model truck engines, and commercial and small engines.

Extended tip - Used in certain modern engines to prevent fouling at low speeds and to provide self-cleaning action at higher speeds.

Extra extended tip -Used in specially designed engines, these plugs project further into the combustion chamber to achieve optimum gap.

Special extended tip - Similar to extra extended tip plugs, but may project even further into the combustion chamber.

Surface gap - Used with capacitor discharge (CD) ignition systems only. They offer a very cold heat range, and are used primarily for outboard motors.

Platinum Spark Plugs

The same premium-quality spark plugs that have 100,000-mile replacement intervals, used in many new Ford Motor Company vehicles, are available as replacement plugs for earlier model vehicles. Platinum's high melting point provides superior resistance to erosion. This results in 60,000- to 100,000-mile intervals between spark plug changes while maintaining optimum engine performance. Platinum plugs are designated by the letters "P," "PP," "E," "EE," "F," or "FE" in the part number suffix.
