Question about 1990 Volkswagen Golf
I would like to know the correct spark plug gap for my 1990 1.8L VW Golf GL. I have looked all around and can't find it.
Have you checked your owners manual? Sometimes they are written in the door panels or inside the hood.

SOURCE: What is the correct spark
The proper spark plug gap for a 2.0L is .7 to.9 mm or .28 to .35 inchs. If you are using multiple electrode plugs, gap is not adjustable. Also when you put your new plugs back in the book calls for 15 ft.lbs. of torque, so don't tighten them too hard ( aluminum strips easy). Hope this helps.
