    2018 Nissan Micra S 5 Speed Spark Plug Change.

    Hey so I have a 2018 K13 model of the Micra with the manual transmission I'm sitting at 74,950km and I finally decided to replace the spark plugs on it. And I must say, idk if it's just new plugs in general or the fact that I spent extra on NGK Ruthenium HX plugs but it fires up instantly without any delay even after a cold winter morning, it's alot smoother at idle and at say 3000rpm then the day I bought it. The throttle response is full and clean. I might be talking to talk here but I would highly recommend anyone looking into new spark plugs to give the NGK Ruthenium HX a go. It's a game changer

    Which NGK Part# are you using? I'm due this year & they don't seem that much more expensive then Iridiums.

    If you look it up on RockAuto it is NGK 97292 Ruthenium HX High Ignitability; Pre-Set Gap: 0.044" Info One of our most popular parts
    Flag indicates this part fits vehicles sold in Canada. It does not indicate where the part was made -- manufacturers produce parts in multiple factories worldwide. OE-Recommended Gap: 0.044"

    Since we have to take the intake manifold off to change plugs a long lasting plug likethis one would be idea IMO

    +1 on long lasting, i did buy the thin wall socket of ebay in preparation but im not changing them till the last mile -2 the manual says too!!

    ooh this one half the price.!!

    SKP SP1030 Enhanced Tapered Ground Electrode w/ Platinum Chip

    NGK SPK,they both have K's must be ok ...


    i guess ill get iridium....

    Are ruthenium spark plugs worth it?
    They have high ignitability with complete fuel burn, offer quicker throttle response, and a smoother idle. They might not have the highest durability compared to the premium iridium spark plug, but are cheaper and can ..emphasis added...last almost as long.

    2015 Micra S (manual)
    no A/C /no power options/ block heater/4x 2 Ohm speakers...all factory stock in 2015
    Feb 2015 build
    9,999 purchase price + tax..no additional 1600$ because it was a 2015 purchased in 2016
    so receipt says $8,399....+1600 .... so they look good i guess...for a brand new car!
