Some time back I posted about a cod P0303 related to misfires. I finally got around to swapping the plugs this weekend and man, what a difference! The old plugs appears to be in good condition with the only off thing being green deposits. Nothing huge, just little specks of it.

The green is oxidation. It's normal but is a reason to replace the plugs. Some prefer to run a plug one range hotter to limit this, but I don't recommend it. In fact, the way I drive, one range colder suits my tastes. We used to clean, regap and change the gaskets on plugs, but now they're such a pain to get to on most vehicles, that a change is preferred.

The stability of an OS is in direct proportion to the stability of the user.

New plug are known to be bad/defective. Not many of us own a spark plug tester. I use mine probably once every five years. New plugs are cheap !

Eset AV 2014 vs Eset AV 7 - difference?
I've tried to see if there is a difference between these, it seems that 7 is available through the website and 2014 is what is sold in the stores. Does anyone know if there is any difference between those besides packaging? Is there a difference with engines or definitions? Interface?
