Sparking interest

Asked by Kell

MY 1997 Hyundai Sonata is equipped with platinum-tipped spark plugs. Would there be any advantage in changing to regular sparks plugs?

THEY will be cheaper, but won't last as long. Platinum-tipped spark plugs are used for their longer life and are fitted mainly because America has laws about service intervals and the platinum-tipped plugs help meet the laws.
