Cleaning Spark Plugs

I have Platinum plugs in the Samurai. I didn't put them in but the original owner did. With the problems that I was having I managed to cover them well in black sut (gas). Can they be cleaned and used again. I feel like its a waste to just toss them.

Yea, you can clean'em.

But just GO BUY NEW ONES!

How long have you had your truck? I would have changed them as soon as I bought it.

Platinums are a waste of money as far as I'm concerned , use the standard copper plugs recommended by Suzuki and be done with it . A lot cheaper too...

I agree with Sarge. The platinums tend to get really badly fouled. Don't know why. A good set of NGK's are as good as it gets.

Make sure they are the 5ES not the 5EY ngk's. The ey's are to long and will hit the piston.

Altho, the 86 has 5ey's and they they work jus fine.
