The proper torque is 26 Ft-lbs due to the aluminum head.
I dont know the torque for the 2000 but a rule of thumb is, with ratchet get the plug snug and go a quarter turn. allways use anti-siez lube for plugs on your plugs.
Gap the plugs .038" to .043" and torque the plugs to 22 ft/lbs.
Torque the spark plugs to 11 lb/ft.
Check the terminals in boots are fully snapped on to ends of plugs. Also proper torque on plugs. Remeber if loose, thee is no compression & gases won't fire.
Which drain plugs?
The spark plug torque on a 1992 Honda Accord would be approximately 13 lbs. The gap for the spark plugs is 1.1mm.
The 2.5 liter four cylinder engine in Dodge Spirits and Plymouth Acclaims uses the then very common Champion N12Y or N12YC spark plugs (or their equivalents in any other brand. Those plugs require 20 lb Ft of torque and nothing more (the cylinder head is made of Aluminum, so try to use a torque Wrench to avoid over-torquing and possibly stripping a thread! Plug gap is 0.035" or 35 mils. (0.9 mm). Turbo engines MUST NOT use Platinum tipped spark plugs, since their very thin electrodes cannot conduct away the heat produced by those more powerful engines, and can produce preignition in those engine versions, which should use only Standard type plugs. Non-Turbo engines can use Platinum electrode plugs with no problem, which tend to last much more time between plug changes. Amclaussen.
Screwed in the head.
Remove the plugs one at a time and replace with a new plug you have gapped properly. Tighten to the proper torque Do not over-torque plugs. You risk damage to cylinder heads (particularly aluminum ones), and proper firing depends on the plug being at precisely the right height relative to the cylinder. I will list a link to Torque Specs. below. It is necessary to remove the upper intake plenum. Purchase the intake gaskets when you purchase the plugs. You also have to remove the coils one at a time, remove the plugs w/a 5/8" spark plug socket, coat the threads of the new plug with a small dab of anti size compound, thread the plugs in using only the socket and extension after the contact the head tighten an additional 1/16 turn.
The correct torque is 13 ft/lbs.
Torque to 11 lb/ft
20 ft lbs
specification on gapping spark plugs for 2006 chevy cobalt
It seems to depend on the spark plug. I replaced the Motorcraft plugs with Bosch Platinum+2 plugs. Look here for what Bosch says about torques (search for the word "torque"): http://www.boschautoparts.com/Resources/FAQS/SparkPlugs.htm The box of the Platinum+2 plugs said to torque them to 15 ft.-lbs., which is what I did. Good luck!
Check plugs and wires

None, It is commonly believed that 22ft/lb is the torque for all spark plugs but this is incorrect
The torque for spark plugs is 18 N*m or 13 ft*lbf.
You get the manual for the engine that you are replacing the plugs in then you use your torque wrench and tighten to the specified torque. If you have an aluminum head, be super careful and be sure to use the correct torque spec.
test the temp sensor. Check spark plugs,plug wires,torque convertor. test the temp sensor. Check spark plugs,plug wires,torque convertor.
