But you will note the threads are a different colour, as is the nipple on the top, which has a different coating on it.



Interesting. Never paid attention to that.

I also use and recommend Autolite plugs and plug wires.

I had also heard NGK made a bunch of the newer Ford plugs. I just use OEM - they are cheap enough and won't cause problems.

If you look at many current Ford passenger cars (Focus, Fiesta, Fusion/Mondeo, Transit, Edge) which BTW were designed and engineered in Germany, you'll find that Bosch and Beru are OEM in those models. Not to mention that many electrical
components are Bosch as well.

They have always had plenty of Bosch parts. EEC-IV was co-developed by Ford, Intel and Bosch. Most of the sensors, injectors....etc were Bosch units on those vehicles.

AP104 Autolite are nothing like the Motorcraft Platinum fine wire plugs that came standard. I think they were NGK. But the online Autolite catalog shows AP104 to be the OE replacement plug, so I am comfortable running them. Since they were installed at the shop 6 months ago I am dieing to pull them. I want to check condition, gap, and I want to check for presence of the platinum disc.

Since the car is running well would you just leave them alone if you were me? Plugs are a b*tch to pull because they give strong turning resistance almost all the way out.
