Sparkplug Warning. Please look

So after going to Autozone because they had Iridium Plugs, I get home take everything apart to find out that they are not the right size. Our plugs use a 14 mm socket. The ones Autozone sold me are a 5/8 and that socket wont even fit into the sparkplug hole. So what ever you do dont beleive any parts house thats says the autolite spark plugs will work becasue they wont. Autolites website dosent even list them for our car.

I found this out awhile ago, and finally said F-it, and when I had to order a new O2 sensor, I went ahead and ordered new plugs from Nissan.

from what i gathered from every autoparts store around the only sparkplugs we can get is from the dealer because blah blah blah nissan hasnt released the design yet...

VersaMG08 They break down their new members and mold them into other NICO clones, it's an endless cycle. If you don't obey, either blend in or get recycled.

Why do you keep changing plugs? I believe recommended interval is like every 105k miles.


current mileage 152,000
last tank 35 mpg -personal best 44.04 mpg and no I don't hypermile

Im at 70k, and my bank 1 o2 sensor went out awhile ago. At the time I was only driving 2 miles one way to work, so I didnt bother. Now I drive 56 miles one way, so I want to make sure im getting peak mpg. So I ordered new a new o2 sensor and plugs, and they showed up today. My thought is, if my A/F ratios have been off due to a bad o2 sensor, then the plugs could have premature wear. Thats why im replacing mine.

They are Denso part # FXE20HR11 if you want to google for cheap prices. $10-12 seems to be about the best out there right now.

I knew someone on here had high miles but I thought it was a different screen name . Congrats on the mileage! Planning on running mine over 300k! I do 32k a year and mostly highway.
