1991 pontiac subird plug cap confussed..

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  1991 pontiac subird plug cap confussed..

my question is on a 91 pontiac sunbird 2.0L plug cap. my glove box owners manual says for a 2.0L and a 3.1L that cap should be .060 .. its says that same for both in the haynes repair manual and the 91 pontaic sunbird service manual. but the sticker under the hood says .045 cap why does 3 of them say it should be .060 and the hood says .045 and which one is right?

I'm trying to understand what your trying to say. So you don't know what is the correct spark plug gap?

The correct gap is .45

i have always went by hood sticker for gap. just like to no why everthing else says .060 gap even the pontiac service shop manual.

If the 8th digit of your VIN is "K", the proper gap is .045". If the 8th digit is something else, the gap is .060".

Why was that so hard?

both of you had only one post since January before today, and you both suddenly decide to post within a few hours of each other today. I think this is a conspiracy, I think Bav and Hobo are the same person. hey bavarianhobo, bipolar much?:laughing:

thank you DVD .My thoughts exactly...by the way i know its a vin k..
i was just wondering why all the other manuals and books said the same
on plug gap. is there that many mistakes in the books or using this site for info is about as wide as a plug gap.

I check the forum every single day. Just because I don't post doesn't mean I'm not here.

I guess English must be your second or third language. You quite obviously have trouble expressing yourself in a proper manner. Just look at your posts in this thread for evidence of that.

I'm not really sure if that's supposed to be an insult toward me or not. But if it is, you need to learn some manners. You were given an educated and correct answer to your mostly incoherent question. You should be greatful that anyone answered you at all.

All this crap over why all the differrent discrepancies in the owners manual and services manual for a plug Gap. i know and always use the factory hood specs for the gap. just thought this site might know the question. Since there still no answer why the discrepancies. you answered my question.
Now see if you can figure out this one also HOBO? Was it an insult or not!!!

bleep.........bleep.........bleep.........bleep. and the forums have come back to life, just as unfriendly as ever:banghead:

Newsflash li’l fella. The site doesn't know anything, nor can it answer your debatably ignorant questions. The forum is just a forum, nothing else. Just a bunch of electrons and bytes on the worldwide interwebz. It is not a living, breathing or thinking thing. That’s for the members to do… Except you’re apparently exempt from the thinking part.

If you’re really, genuinely interested in the answer to your semi-intelligible original question, why didn’t you just go ahead and contact the publishers of the manuals in question instead of people who have nothing to do with them? Wait a minute, the answer is clear. Because you’re not smart enough to realize that they’re the only ones who may know the answer.

Good job. You should be proud of yourself. I sure am.

So you say this site knows nothing.Really starting to believe that since it came from you.. And you never read a owners manual , shop manual ,haynes manual or manual of any kind and YOU never came across any discrepancies and gave it a second thought. Simple as that!!
And if you say no--- you are so fullll of it...
