    What Was Your Spark Plug Gap?

    If you changed your spark plug gap per this thread or this thread, please report what the original values were here. If you have yet to change them, please remember to report the original values.

    My case with GM has been escalated to a district case manager at GM to hopefully get some exposure on this issue. My primary goal is to allow people to go to their dealerships and have their spark plug gaps checked and corrected (as there has been a 100% error rate so far), and the more people and numbers I can present them with, the better.

    If your username is on the below list, I already have your numbers down. If not, please post them. I need specific values, such as ".022, .023, .025, .025." I will also need the model year of your Cruze.

    We have 37 cars recorded so far. I'd like to get at least 50. My current spreadsheet is also attached.

    looking at your spreadsheet, seems we should also be recording model years also. My 2012 was .019,.024,.025,.024

    Good suggestion.

    If those who have already reported their numbers would provide the year of their vehicle, I can certainly have that added to the spreadsheet. I will add those values for all newly reported gaps.

    It would be nice to know if the engines are 1.8 or 1.4T as well. This may give us an idea about the severity of the problem for each engine.

    I have been making a mental note of this and have not yet noticed any trends.

    I PM'd my info - I was surprised that my plugs were either .025 or .026 still under spec but pretty consistent. This is a May 2011 built ECO - Austrian built engine and transmission per the window sticker. By the way the total cost to check and regap plugs was $16 in tools and supplies. Gapping tool was $2, mini feeler guage $3, magnetic 5/8 plug socket $6 and anti sieze $5 from auto zone.
