Default RE: Spark Gap



A few weeks ago someone said a TSB came out saying to gap the plugs at .40 for the 03 2.4 Turbos.

I just got off the phone with tdhe service dept. at Chrysler, and they dontd have any TSBs on that. He said t[?]o gap them at 48-53.....

Tell the dealer to read:
08-008-04 03/02/2004 Engine:Electrical -
New Spark Plug for 2.4L Engine
The new style spark plug is now recommended and preferred
for use in all 2004 and previous model years that are equipped
with a 2.4L engine. Spark Plug gap is to be set at .040
The new spark plug is more resistant to possible cold
engine carbon fouling.

Note: To eliminate concerns of a possible high secondary
ignition voltage flashover, caused by the thermal set of
the ignition cable spark plug boot(s), to the old style
spark plugs (RE14MCC5), install new ignition cables when
replacing the old style spark plugs with the new style spark
plugs, RE16MC or LZTR4A-11, for the first time.

When you replace plugs definitly gap them at .040. That applies to turbo or NA!

Doesn't mention turbo or non-turbo - "ALL"
