Hi All,
Can any one tell me what the Spark Plug Gap for my 2.0 16v Auto should be. Fitting NGK 7113 (LFR5B) long reach plugs which come with a 0.9mm gap - is that right for this engine?
Thanks,
Mike

Thats correct - there is also a Bosch alternative.

Thanks James,
Good of you to respond - I had assumed it would be in the handbook but no such luck, presume Peugeot like to keep useful things like that a secret!!!!
Would have left them at 0.9mm if no one had replied - it had to be better than the (approx) 2.5 - 3.0mm gap of the ones that came out - car was serviced just over a year ago (about 10,000 miles) but obviously didn't get new plugs then - won't use that garage again!!!
Developed a starting problem last week - had to turn engine a few times before it would fire which never has happened before (always first time, every time) also occasional 'crackle' on radio (similar to what you get in a electrical storm)
Seems fine now.
Mike
