Best Answer

My '02 Accent GL has the 1.6L DOHC engine. The recommended spark plugs, according to the owner's manual are: Champion RC10YC4 gap them at 0.039 to 0.043 inches NGK BKR5ES-11 or 1.0 to 1.1 mm I put new plugs in @ 30K & 60K miles as recommended. The 2nd set I put in were Champions. I had acceleration problems @ 75K and when visiting the dealer, I was told that the plugs were to blame and that I installed the incorrect ones. When I showed the tech the owner's manual, pointing out that the Champions were recommended, he just shrugged and said I shouldn't use Champions because their materials and workmanship have not advanced to meet the needs of newer vehicles. No answer as to why Hyundai recommends junk parts, but I put in some NGKs (which work well in all Asian Cars, so the tech said) and have not had trouble with the plugs since.
