Question 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?

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?

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