For example, the Champion 3034 is listed as ok but its single-tipped platinum coating design (platinum on just the center electrode) can cause rough idles, missing, etc. If the 3034 is installed, replace it with the 7034 which is double-tipped platinum... i.e. its platinum coating is on both sides of the gap. This is important because the TJ's distributorless ignition fires each plug on every stroke but in opposite directions every stroke.

bustedknuckles It's a very small hicup at idle. Everything else seems great.

bustedknuckles Champions. Yes coil rail no wires. Seems normal around 800 rpm. I do about 70 miles a day all highway around 75-80 mph at 2500 rpms or more. Roughly 200 miles a tank. 229 last week.

Jerry Bransford They all have coils, do you have a distributor or is it a coil-on-plug spark rail?

Has your mpg taken a recent drop? Exactly what spark plug brand & model # spark plugs have you been running?

Any notice of a gasoline aroma?

Does it idle too low or just has a miss at the usual idle rpm?

And no, a miss at idle is not normal.

idle issue?

Very small "miss" at idle. This normal for 04 4.0?

When I drive everything is fine plenty of power. Replaced the plugs. No change.
