    Default about plugs...city idsi.

    hi guys...

    hope ur all well in ur heath.

    i wanted to ask that at my last service frm honda ppl here in sargodha,they took the plugs out to clean,and i saw this brown colored ring made around the plug.i want to ask the experts that what can cause this?is it normal?or theres sum problem?is there anything related to the heat specifications varying? shud i change the plugs back to original or not?

    one more thing that the honda mechanic told me to change it to original plugs,he said that this plug is not ok for city.he could nt give any reason.he just said it wasnt ok.i dnt trust these ppl,so i need ur advise

    and let me state that its a BOSCH 4 TIP PLUG.
    thanx

    thats odd. the people here at honda 3S in lhr told me that i'd actually done a good thing by installing the bosch 4-tip plugs in my city vario. they also said that the platinum 4-tip bosch plugs are even better than these iridium 4-tip ones. its funny how the comments of the honda techs varies from one place to another.

    @ahmadbila

    More then a brand, heat range of spark plug is the matter of concern. U may use better brand with better electrode type with same temprature specs but if the heat range of spark plug is not as per manufacturer recomendtaion then sure it wil effect the perfomance of engine.

    Are u using the same specs in Bosch as recomended for City by Honda?

    yeah i also thought it wud b better to install these plugs.and yeah thats the thing,their comments vary frm place to place.actually sargodha 3s honda ppl suck bigtime,so im asking experts here,rather then the morons there.

    @imranbhatti
    sir i know **** about the temp specs of a plug.i just went out nd bought 4 tip bosch plugs widout looking at the specs.can u tell me how can figure out wat r the specs of honda original plugs nd that of mine plugs?
    and anything u know abot that brown circle?is not normal or due to heat spec varying?
    explain abit please.thanx

    The correct term for this kind of deformity is "Corona Staining" :-) And usually it doesnt impair the performance of the plugs but they DO indicate something i.e my brother accidentally used a drop of motor oil in place of an anti-seize agent so the plugs developed these stains; high voltage running through the plugs actually magnetize the oil or dust particles near them hence the stains.
