Default BOSCH plugs (good or bad move?)

everyone is telling me they mess up our engines and all that. that NGK is the way to go. so can i get some feed back?

i installed my bosch back around 6-7 months ago, and my car is starting to misfire. can i blame the bosch plugs? or what else can cause me to have my engine snap crackle and pop?

What is the temp rating on the plugs?

Driving in Ohio blows.

YES

IT'S THE PLUGS

mine got destroyed after a few months, and one of them even melted and had no gap

as a result, i needed new plug wires, and a new cap&rotor :??:


i fixed it all, put in NGK's, and it ran better than it ever had 8D

You sure? I put +2's on my 1998 Hyundai Accent. Had it in there for 30,000 miles and it still there. the car runs fine. I just installed Bosch Platinum in my 1999 Tiburon.. already drove 4,000 miles with them,... no problem so far.

I've got Bosch +4s in my car and they work fine. I think I end up with a different brand of plugs every time I replace them, and I have never had any problems.

bah, bosch plugs suck.

Platinum plugs are only good for longevity, they don't spark as nice as copper.

I ise NGK V-powers and they work great.
