spark plugs

So yesterday i changed my plus. I had reg autolite 985 plugs in her. I put in autolite single plat. 985. Engine sounded quiter and had no damn power. I have a 89 yj with 2.5l tbi. Anybody have any clues or ideas of what plug to run. She ran wonderful wih the reg. Autolite 985 plugs. It as just time to change them. Iwill be utting them back in to see if she has power. Then. Wil buy those and not run the plat.

For $2 of the 985's I'd stick with them.

Also, make sure you've got the plugs in good, and aren't getting a misfire or something.

These motors do very well with champion and they're easy on the wallet ... All three of my jeeps run them

Yeah, when we were a dodge/jeep dealer the techs wouldn't put anything other than the champion plugs back in. They always claimed they wouldn't run worth a chit.

PS: I wouldn't put autolite in my lawnmower...

Champion is ok for yard tractors. I never liked them to much in autos. Autolite works pretty good in Chrysler Dodge engines. Ac delco for GM Motorcraft for Ford NGK for imports Bosch I would not recomend maybe for German autos yes

Thanks for your excellent opinion. (can you detect the sarcasm?)

I'm sure your village is missing you by now.

I used champions once in my bike, the temperature chart on them was wrong (still are), plugs got too hot and blew the tips. Champion, i wouldn't even use on a lawn mower..
