Default should have logged on as "dummy"

I can't find engine model identification I can interpret.
Found these numbers on sticker with spark plug numbers:
2.4L4CRXVO2.4HO
2.4L4CRXR0101GBA.
Are those the identifiers? Can someone translate them for me?

I'm assuming I have basic no frills engine, but don't know what that is.
Thanks

ps I know 2.4 L

Mine has the same numbers and I have a 04 touring turbo (lite). Runs on regular gas. It's the low horse power turbo. If yours doesn't have a Turbo. It's just a 2.4 liter.

anyway, I'm trying to be sure I can use double platinum spark plugs. As far as I can see, I can.
Any opinions on whether they are worth the few extra bucks?
I use this car for running around locally mostly, occassional longer trips. Very low annual mileage. I'd like to improve gas mileage as well as prolong between changeing plugs.
Anxious to hear opinions.

That will be the eighth digit of the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). You can find the VIN at the bottom lower left corner of the windshield. It is a tag that is mounted on the dash. It contains 17 digits. It should also be on a white tag on the drivers door or doorpost. It should also be on the license plate registration card.

Oh by the way, a dummy is the person who doesn't seek the answers to their questions!

If you don't have a turbo, platinums will last longer - they are not a good idea in turbos, as the tips can come off in turbo engines....
Be sure and change the plugs wires
