#107 of 114 Does my 2001 Civic EX require ONLY Honda spark plugs?
Apr 04, 2006 (7:25 pm)
This past week, I brought my 2001 Civic EX (200,000 miles!)to the dealer because the car does this litle jerking thing in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gear at low speeds. I thought that the clutch might be slipping. As it turns out, the dealer's rep told me that the clutch was OK, but the mechanic found non-Honda spark plugs (I had installed these some time ago), and that Hondas REALLY run better with genuine Honda plugs. Of course, each plug is $25 , and with labor the cost would have been $145 (I live in California). I told the guy I'd take care of it myself.
Does this sound bogus? He said the car needs platinums, but I did install Bosch platinums...for about $4 a piece, not $25. Can anyone recommend a good spark plug?

Hello. Just wanted to introduce myself and my car. My name is Jeff and I drive a 1995 Honda Civic. I made it to 205,552 miles before the motor gave up. Back in January I put an imported 1.5 L with 35,000 miles on it. I've done quite a few mods to it. Greddy header-back exhaust. Iceman cold air intake. Centerforce clutch. Bigger tires and wheels. It's been a constant work in progress. Next up is to upgrade the suspension.

Honda recommends you use NGK spark plugs. You can get them for about $3-$4 each. I have Denso Iridium plugs in my Civic. They are about $12 each. I haven't really noticed the difference and will probably go back to NGK.

I go way back with Honda to 1978 with the first ACCORD,then an 80 Civic wagon,then an 82 ACCORD,moving upscale I had
a 90 Intega,and on and on.I never put more than 90k on them
except for the 82 which I ran to death. Anyhow I got this 06
Civic mainly cause gas was over $3 a gallon thinking my wifey would drive it.She hates it because she has long legs
and has difficulty getting in and out.I was just at the car
show and tried many cars on for size and the Civic is the
roomiest of all the cars that get 30mpg city excluding
Hybrids.So lesson learned when you go car shopping take your spouse so you both are happy.One of the easiest cars
to get in and out of is the Scion Xb but she thinks it is so ugly.I believe form should follow function but then I am a guy,DUH!
