Triple88a I wonder why bosch plats have such a thin electrode or whatever that is called.

chino78415 I put the Bosch Plat. 2's on my '05 and I really can't tell the difference. My mpg has decreased and I still haven't received my rebate from Bosch.

All the sales lit I've seen on these shows multiple sparks coming off the center electrode to the 2 or 4 or whatever grounds there are. This is simply not how they work in the real world. The spark jumps the gap that is the narrowest, and that is it. What happens is the plug will spark a few times on the narrowest gap, which widens this out a bit and when then change to the next narrowest gap and so on. So over time the spark will migrate around. But, it will NEVER all spark at once with all the gaps.

You should definitely be running double-tipped platinums in your distributorless '05 and not those single-tipped platinum plugs.

The new coil-on-plug design used on later distributorless 4.0L engines use doesn't do well unless both sides of the spark plug gap are identical. Jeep has issued a TSB (technical service bulletin) that upon receiving a Jeep with a bad idle or other hard to diagnose engine running problem, they are to check to make sure single-tipped platinum plugs are not installed and replace them if they are.

You should be running either non-platinum plugs or a double-tipped platinum plug like the Autolite APP985.

Triple88a might want to look there... There is lots of instant info at your finger tips.
