Default 2001 Taurus SEL w/3.0L 24V DOHC Spark Plugs?


Hi all,

The manual specifies the plug should be AWSF-32F but the Ford parts
dealer gave me AGSF-32F-M.

Is this a valid replacement?

If so, what should the gap be?

Thanks in advance.

i dunno, i had the same problem with my 02 ranger. the plugs that were
in it were a different number than the ones ford gave me for replacement
(which was actually the same as the f150s, if you can believe that on a
3.0L Ranger vs a 4.6L f150) seems to work fine hahaa (if you can say a
3.0L ranger works fine hahahhaa pos)

Get motorcraft plugs from a dealer, and check your calibration sticker
under the hood for the gap, probably .052 to .056 range.

What you'll find when you pull the plugs is that the original plugs are not
all the same. I'm not kidding. It has something to do with the polarity of
the voltage sent to the various plugs. The ones that they gave you are
probably plugs that will work in place of either of the original plugs.

Aren't the 2.5 V6's in Mystiques set up the same way? two different part
numbers depending on which side of the engine they are?

I'm pretty sure that's right.

In article <A9Yrg.1864$Th7.961@trnddc05>, colonyparkwagon@excite.com
says...

As a cost-saving move, the factory plugs on many vehicles with
distributorless ignition that use coilpacks have platinum coating on
only one electrode. On one plug, it will be the center electrode, the
other version will be the ground electrode. That is because one coil is
used to fire TWO plugs. One plug will be on the power stroke, the other
on the exhaust stroke. The path basically goes from ground to center
electrode on one plug, through the coil, then from center to ground on
the other plug.

Right. And the way that's accomplished is by sending voltages of opposite
polarity to each of the two plugs on the same pack.
