Simply type 'How to spot fake Iridium IX spark plugs' in a search engine and we'll sure to be near the top of the results.
Vehicle CompatibilityWe recommend using NGK's Part Finder website to ensure correct fitment first before ordering! If an vehicle compatibility table has been added to this listing, please use the information provided as a guide only. This is due to the hundreds of combinations a single model can have (e.g. chassis date range, engine number, trim etc) so 100% accuracy may not be possible.
InstallationWARNING - DO NOT USE COPPER GREASE (AKA COPPER SLIP, ANTI-SEIZE, THREAD COMPOUND) ON MODERN SPARK PLUG THREADS!Using such lubricants can result in over-torqued values of up to 20 percent! This renders torqued-wrench readings completely inaccurate and can result in major damage, such as stripped engine head threads or plug breakage. Virtually all modern spark plugs feature a special anti-seizure nickel or zinc-chromate shell plating. This silver-or-chrome coloured finish is designed to provide corrosion resistance against moisture, chemicals and weathering. The coating also acts as a release agent during spark plug removal. The only time they're required are usually on vintage spark plugs with a black, none coated surface.
