1st I am changing my plugs, and I dont have a manual, and I dont know the gap size for my 2000 OB :rolleyes: :confused:

2nd when I pulled the 1st plug I have noticed there is oil around the threads, is this normal? this is my 1st subaru and I have never noticed this before on any other car.

Please help ASAP for the gap size this is my daily driver. Also I did do quick search under "spark plug gap size" and did not come up with the answers I am looking for.

Thank you,

The oil around the plugs/boots is the result of leaky gaskets where the plugs go through the valve cover. You can replace these when you replace the valve cover gasket but it's not crucial. Sorry but I don't have the manual at hand. Any Sub dealer should be able to give you the spec on the ?NGK plugs.

Hi, I'm too lazy to do gapping thing, so I've always used Bosch 4 way platinum plugs. No gapping needed what so ever. I've used them since 80k on my '93 Legacy and now she's a little over 211k. I think I've only changed it twice during the course.
