Default Use anti-sieze compound on spark plug? Or not?

This is for a 2005 non-turbocharged PT Cruiser.

The Haynes Repair guide for this vehicle recommends using an anti-seize compound on the threads of the spark plug when installing.

The official Service Guide for this vehicle makes no recommendation whatsoever either prescribing or proscribing the use of an anti-seize compound.

What does everybody here think of this? I am planning on using Champion 7570 spark plugs.

I use it on all my spark plugs. Since it is an aluminum head it will prevent galling and make the next change easier. Just my opinion.

Use it sparingly. Do not glob it on. Avoid fouling out the plug.

Anti seize is very seldom recomend in any Factory Service Manual...because if you use to much it can cause continuity problems. Use only sparingly (as another member described) what ever you define that is.

I always use it on the spark plugs threads and have for decades and never had a problem with cross threading or continuity. I also clean the spark plug threads with either carb or brake clean and properly torques the spark plug.

I always use anti-seize on the plugs. It really makes a difference when you have to change them again and you don't pull out the treads along with the plug.
