hey guys, i'm having an issue with my engine misfiring in multiple cylinders; my mechanic says i need to change my sparkplugs. from what ive been researching, my car (v6-auto coupe) requires NGK iridiums; the parts stores that ive called only carry NGK "laser-iridium" which they say is the proper plug or my car, ans these vary from $20-30 each... seems a bit pricey... dealership ive called a couple times and spoken to different people; they just say its NGK iridium and they're about $24/plug. canadian tire sells NGK plugs 2 in a pack for $20, but none are listed as being for my accord..

main question is, whats the difference between laser-iridium and regular irridium? i hadn't even heard of laser-iridium til now, and i'm fairly certain there were no such thing as laser iridiums back in 03 when the car was made...

any suggestions or advice are appreciated... thx

Iridiums are pricey up here, ~$20-25 CDN each, but they'll last you 160,000 km, longer than most plugs, hence the increased price. Well worth it IMO

Check your owner's manual for the part number. There'll be two part numbers, I think you want the first one, second is for ULEV models sold in California emissions states IIRC.

I see rockauto has them for $9.64 per plug, plus you can put 45853253761045 in the where did you hear about us in the car, and their shipping is extremely reasonable

Local Advance Auto. NGK. I don't have the part number right now, but I can get it out of my car if you really need it.
