    :blink: that was taken AFTER i cleaned out as much corrosion as possible from that one terminal. that biatch had been on my car for at least 3 years, and i have no idea when i started running on 3 cylinders! :eek:

    i think i remember washing the engine a couple times without thoroughly covering the dist.. corrosion forms slowly, so i didnt notice any sudden difference in performance. always cover your dist. well before wetting your engine! ;)

    that sucks. i got mine from napa too. in fact, they are the only ones who carry NGK out here. something i found out after checking 4 places (pep boys, autozone, kragen, trak auto) maybe you should buy them off the net next time, cause ive seen them for 1.99 at some website which comes up if you type "www.ngk.com"..its not the NGK website, just an online store.

    I just got some new NGK's last week and I got them from Kragen! Maybe you had the salesperson who rides the short bus to work?

    hmmm. maybe the kragen out here just sucks.

    and, 90accord, the platinums are probly what they put in new hondas now, so $6 a plug would be about right. they will last you like twice as long as the copper plugs.
