whilst being an old hand at palm reading (pun intended) and the occasional tea leave reader i have never read spark plugs before, but, im prepared to have a go for you frank.


ok, plug no 1 is telling me you are not giving your car a hard enough time on a regular basis.

no 2 is showing in the near future you will take beer drinking to a new level when you have to trade in the au on a ute as a 6 pack now means 6 kegs.

no 3 is revealing a new relationship on the horizon, with a fine young lady who actually likes beer as much as yourself, this could be a perfect match.

no 4 unfortunatly shows the fine young lady leaving you after you reveal your fetish for licking hairy armpits after just one week together.

no 5 is telling me to let you know that the dream job you are after is just around the corner, which corner is unclear unfortunatly.

no 6 paints a clear picture of your later years in life being spent still post whoring on FM.

and the new plug doesnt say much at all im afraid.


i hope this has helped even in some small way.


cheers Rob.

:lol:
Gold!

I ain't no spark-plug reader either, but I'm pretty sure light browning like that is normal.
Black means it's running rich I think.
There's a handy little colour chart in the back of my Haynes Manual at home.
I can remember the pic of a spark plug that was all smashed up and mangled, to which the haynes manual said "Possible foreign object in combustion chamber"

They look good franky. Close up of the end would be good.

Doesnt look lean or like there's any detonation (little flicks and spots). Mine come out black coz she runs fairly rich :)

Looks like there maybe something with number 1 plug. The tip looks a different colour and size to the rest of them.

They look fine. The red/brown tinge is just from the additives you use.

Is it my imagination or is 2 and 3 the least healthiest of the whole bunch. Different shade, and slight deposit on the base of the electrode.
