VW 2.0T TSI Spark Plug DIY (How To)
Today, in Auto Parts, we’re going to be replacing spark plugs at 2.0 TSI engine on this particular model -2013 CC, and most current 2.0 TSI engine to service in a row recommended by Volkswagen is 60,000 miles. We recommend, as history has always been, 40,000 miles for replacing spark plugs that it is a replacement or at least checked or cleaned to make sure that they are all in good shape.
For the CIY, we’re going to be using rare few tools – 3-inch Ratchet, 10-inch extension and a 5/8ths spark plug socket which is going to be used for most Volkswagen and Audi engines.
On this 2.0T Engine, we’re going to replace spark plugs with NGK BKR7EIX plugs. We found it to be the most economical choice and they do come pre gapped, ready for installation. Once we go through our install, we start much like our Coil video if you’d seen that. You just remove the engine cover by just pulling up at each corner and move this to the side. We then go through and remove the harness from each coil and push that out of the way. We can then go through and remove each ignition coil. Now, we’re ready to remove the spark plugs. We can go ahead through with our ratchet and go into the cylinder, and loosen its spark plugs. This particular plug has around 30 to 4,000 miles on it. You can take a look if it is a little bit warm. Now, we can go through and remove the other ones. Now, we’ve removed all the spark plugs.
As mentioned earlier, we’re going to be replacing our original spark plugs with this BKR7EIX plugs. Here, you can see a comparison versus a brand new BKR7EIX plugs and the original NGK version of the Volkswagen plug. They’re obviously is somewhere on your electro here. We also offer the Volkswagen version, if you’re also interested in those, as well as the Basher for 2.0T Engine. We, generally prefer, recommend engine NGK plug because it’s the most economical choice, but if you have a preference, there isn’t really going to be a major differences between the NGK version and the Volkswagen version and the Bosch version. They’re all going to be really similar. It really boils down to preference.
So, when we’re going to be installing these spark plugs on this engine? They’re already are pre-gapped as we talked about that before, even installing your spark plugs socket, and pop it in place. When you have these spark plugs socket, they have a rubber piece inside that retains the spark plug so you can turn it upside down and it doesn’t fall out.
When installing this in our engine, you set them in place and you kind of throw them in by hand and wait for them to bottom out. Now, we’re going to go ahead tighten down all our spark plugs. As mentioned in the NGK box, you tighten them down by hand and then you go half to 2/3 of the turn. The intention of this is just to crush the crush washer at the end of the spark plugs. Just keep in mind, we don’t wanna go crazy tightening these we really don’t wanna do any damage at the engine; just enough to where you’re getting the spark plug all in and tight. Once we’re done tightening down all these spark plugs, we can now re-install all the ignition coils. You wanna make sure that they’re all the way seated down; otherwise, you could have some misfire issues. Reinstall all the spark plug connectors – get them all kinda lined up, and start tightening them. Get them snapped on. Make sure you hear them locked in place. We can put our engine cover back on and just pop down at each corner and we’re all set.
That’s how we install NGK BKR7EIX spark plugs on a 2.0T TSI engine.
