    Autolite Spark plugs

    Now for the big question, SPARK PLUGS. How many have tried Autolite
    spark plug? I have had 4 sets of them. Twice the threads would not
    screw into the cylinder at all. The other two sets were warranty. Oh
    by the way they make sure the ones they warranty ones have good threads.

    Have anyone else had this happen to them? I think the old saying, "you
    get what you pay for" is very true.

    Autolite Spark plugs

    I've never had any trouble with Autolite plugs. I didn't know the
    product warranty was an option. Warranty or not, if the threads are
    bad, I would make the retailer take them back.

    Best regards,

    Autolite Spark plugs

    Now for what happened. I called Chief and they said I would have to
    deal with Autolite. This was las summer and I was going to AIR
    Venture, went to there booth and told them what was the problem( mind
    you this was the second set with same problem in a few year period, I
    own two planes. They asked what part number I was using and said they
    just happened to have some in the back of the booth. They gave me a
    new set. This told me that they knew they have a problem and have had
    for quite a while. Anyway I would not ever buy any of their plugs
    again, even if they sold them for two dollars each.

    Now for those that think I may have a bad thread in the cylinder, The
    Champions that I bought work just great, I could screw them in by
    hand. Don't think that all their plugs are bad but when 2 out of 4
    sets that I have had is enough for me.

    YOU DO GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR.

    Autolite Spark plugs

    So they had a problem but they made good on it. And you accepted a
    set of good replacements. And now you're saying you'd never use them
    again and that we shouldn't either? What more should they do?
