    Default 04 CRV Spark Plug Gap ?

    Hi Everyone...

    Just replaced my Panasonic battery OEM with a Wal Mart model.
    Had mine tested and it was going bad.
    Anyways while I was under the hood I thought I'd check the original plugs out. Pulled one and looked pretty good after 73k miles.
    I was wandering what the gap should be. I measured about .041 on the original NGK IR plug.
    I didn't see it in the manual or the Forum archives.
    Anyways should I go ahead and replace them after 73k miles or just let them go longer?

    TIA-- Bob 04 EX Martinsville,IN.

    It should be .039 - .043, you're good at .041.
    I have 121,000 kms and on originals, they look great and runs great so I'm leaving them.

    While you were under the hood, you should have looked UP. The plug gap is on the emissions sticker there.

    Carbuff the smiley in your picture tripped me out. I couldn't figure out what it was, at first I thought it was a smiley passing gas... eventualyl I saw it was shifting a gear shift and it was a burnout

    The little smiley leaves rubber in 1st-3rd gear, I get a kick out of that.

    I think you can look in the glove box or the bathroom too, or did they start leaving such specifications out of the Owner's Manual ? ?

    Check this thread about the owner's manual: http://www.hondasuv.com/members/showthread.php?t=14039&

    First, read the Owner's Manual, then SEARCH, your Internet is STILL WAY faster than mine.

    I had guessed that, since it keeps reaching for the gear shift for each gear.
