Sparks Plugs - intrigued to know.

Hey guys this is just a question that popped into my head and doesn't seem to be asked on the net so we drink 8f anyone knows or has theories.

But say on a 4 cylinder engine what would happen if you used 4 different brands of spark plugs, so one for each cylinder?

Just wondering lol

Chip in anyone

As long as all four are the correct type for that engine, it should all work fine. Slight differences in resistance might lead to uneven running or maybe misfires after some use, so generally not a good idea.

Re: Sparks Plugs - intrigued to know.

Functionally all will work (as long as they are suitable for the engine) and all of them are set to the same electrode distance.

There might be some difference in internal resistance as not all spark plugs have resistance built in. Most modern OEM ones do, as the resistance will cut down electrical noise from the spark plug discharge. I thin it's around 5kohm.
