Rear plugs aren't much harder than the front. Not bad at all. The socket is the smaller of the 2 standard plug sockets. 5/8".

Plug gap should be 0.060".
How do I check the gap??? And would anyone like to suggest some new plugs???

To check the gap, plug gapper/feeler guage. They are only a couple of bucks. Have the parts store show you how to do it when you purchase your plugs.

I would go with AC Delco Platinum plugs. Stay away from Bosch (personal experience--supported by MANY members here). I currently run Champions--but the AC Delco'* are what the car came with. The platinums run about $6.00 each, but are well worth it.

Good luck.

Yup, those are the same ones that the car came out of the factory with... They'll work a lot better than a set of Bosch .... I have never had any trouble with 41-606'*... But have changed over to Rapid Fire # 14... At Least you are AC Delco.... Good Man..
Did you notice any better preformance or throttle response with the rapid fire plugs???

Maybe Burgandy lives at a high elevation and is affected by altitude.
