Default Spark Plug numbers

Does anyone know whether the 90 SSE 3.8 ltr. uses the same AC plugs as the 95 SSEi 3.8 ltr.? Hey since we're on that topic, I would imagine they use the same oil filter, which I believe is Fram Ph 3593.

Thanks Everyone.

Frank

Don't use a Fram. That'* the worst filter on the market.

They should work fine for plugs. Just double check your plug gap listed on the emissions label.

The 90 SSE, can use an R44LTS6, R45LTS6, RapidFire 14, RapidFire 3, NGK TR55 among many others with no issues...

Do Not Use the Phram Filter..... At the very least get the AC Delco PF47

If you ever have a chance to look at a cutaway of a Fram, Puralator, Ac Delco and the like you'll understand in a hurry why i flat out refuse to reccomend Fram... Their oil filters are junk

Well, in that case, might as well put a K&n for the extra $5 no ? i mean, people buy expensive oil and a crappy filter and complain their cars break down.

I love My Delco PF47 oil filters... I have used Puralator in the past and feel that its also a good filter... I think a few have ran the K & N filter, and from what I understand its supposed to be a good filter...
