civic 2004 lx spark plug gap

2004 Honda civic sedan lx

I bought NGK Laser platimum premium and i want to know what is the spark plug gap for this vechicle. i check the manual, but there is no information on it.

The box said "Do not adjust spark plug gap due to possible damage to fine center electrode"

thx

I read online some where is that you should adjust them even if it said do not? I just replace spark plug (denso) for honda civic couple 01 and i gap it. I plan to install new ones, so dont know the require gap spec.

Re: civic 2004 lx spark plug gap

no gapping on iradium spark plugs, and slight torque is fine like a quarter of a turn at best

Re: civic 2004 lx spark plug gap

denso's from the dealership I believe are actually iradiums. Atleast they were on my 04 civic no gapping man unless it's copper, new stuff doesn't require it.
