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.

It might help removing the battery. You might try installing the radiator and then the fan assembly. It may also help to remove the top piece that is mounted above the radiator, where the hood latch is mounted on.
