NGK to publish spark plug interval info online

In what is being described as an industry first, NGK Spark Plugs U.S.A. is launching a spark plug service interval resource, including original equipment manufacturer suggested spark plug replacement recommendations in its website parts finder and company provided ACES data set.

The company said it is committed to providing counterpersons, technicians, and consumers with valuable, service interval recommendations for spark plug life-cycles as specified by domestic and import manufacturers.

This information will be rolled out in the parts finder and the company’s ACES catalog content.

This is ony available in the U.S. for now.

“For years, the industry has attempted to capture and disseminate this information to ensure consumers and automotive repair technicians were getting optimal ignition performance from today’s complex engines,” said Brian Norko, vice president, aftermarket for NGK Spark Plugs. “This initiative reflects our culture of progression in helping to provide the most accurate, up-to-date and relevant information to the industry and consumers.”

In addition to serving OE automotive and aftermarket customers, NGK also produces spark plugs for motorcycle, power sports, marine and small engine manufacturers. NGK also offers complementary product lines including resistor caps, spark plug wires, and high-performance cables.

In North America, NGK is headquartered in Wixom, Mich., and maintains manufacturing, inventory, and distribution facilities in Irvine, CA; Sissonville, WV; and Chicago, IL.
