Gentlemen,

As advised by you experts, I changed my plugs from platinum to copper. Although, I had to purchase cheaper Champions for temporary use as there are no copper Bosch plugs to be found near my remote Army post. (Will change to Bosch ASAP)

Anyway, I noticed the difference immediately. The hard turn-over problem, which I've had since the car (89 190E 2.6) was purchased, is gone. The hesitation and sluggishness is gone. I feel like doing back flips! I thought these problems would break my mutual funds.

Great advice. Thanx.

Now for oil... I'm changing it this w/e and need to know what kind and grade to use. I have a VW Shirocco 16V running on Mobil 1 10W30. Can I just buy 6 more qts. for the 190 or is another grade preferrable? As always, thanx.

NOTE: I still feel like my money card will be debited soon for all this great advice I'm getting!

Mobil 1 10W 30 is a great oil unless you live where the tempature gets into the 90+ degree area all of the time.

Just buy parts from us when we get the parts up and running is all that we ask in return. Thanks to all of you guys for keeping us running.
