    spark plugs ?

    Hi

    What is the reccomended mileage interval between spark plug change on a Z18XE ?

    Bought the car used 2 years ago and have done 30.000 km in it myself and i actually dont know when they were changed by the previous owner.

    Trying to solve my "Car wont take the throttle when just started up" and was wondering if bad worn spark plugs could be the culprit. Myst say though that the car is starting and running fine when not cold.

    Have tested temperature sensors and totally cleaned out the throttle body and sensors seem to give good realistic readings (op-com) ..

    Will do.

    Just need to get a hold of a socket that fits in the holes...Seems my ordinary spark plug socket is not going to fit ..
