Default Some Advice??

I am wondering what is the recommended type / brand of spark plugs and wires to use to replace the old ones? It is a '92 Bonneville SSEi, and I don't want to go 'cheap', but not neccesarily top of the line crazy expensive. Someone told me NGK G-groove or Bosch Platinum? Any advice???

Welcome to the club. Had a tune-up done in Aug. Mine were replaced with AC Delco plugs and wires. I see several members use the Taylor 8mm wires so they must be okay. After the tune-up it growls like a tiger as opposed to purrs like a kitten.

Anything Bosch...avoid...simple

Get AC-Delco Platinums or NGK Iridiums (NGK is upscale Delco )

NGK V-power is the plug I think you're referring to. You need the TR55. Good plugs. Like the man said, NGK makes AC Delco plugs, so you're safe with either, and I second the Bosch motion. Absolute crap in our engines.

BTW, Supercharged 3800'* also don't like Platinums of any kind. They burn up too fast.

Never buy Bosch plugs. Mine burnt up after only 3 weeks!!! I used AC Delco Rapidfires and Autolite wires. Never had one problem with this combo

Default More Advice?

Thanks all for your input - great help! I'm wondering, I noticed that there are cupholders in the rear seat, but I can't seem to find ANY in the front ?? Is it me or are there NO cupholders? Now my next question is, are there any aftermarket type of cupholders for the front seats? Also, my oil pressure gauge seems busted. It has 'movement', but not right! When car is running, it is pegged over on the high end and bounces around flopping back between half-way and max. Anyone know what that could be, or how to fix??? Again guys, thanks, much appreciated!!!

As long as your oil pressure is OK, it could be the sender or the gauges cluster. More likely a bad sender.

The cup holders should be inside the armrest in the front, and in each door towards the front of the pocket.

The cup holder on mine is in the ash tray on the dash.

One cup-tipper in each door, and a cup holder, shifter blocker, that flips out of the center console on mine...

Oh, yeah, and I'm running the AC Delco Plats...
