    Going to be buying some spark plugs and wires pretty soon here, just wondering if there is anything I should look for in particular. I've got a 2001 Accord LX 4cyl.. Thinking about these

    Wires:

    Plugs:

    Also, I've changed my plugs once before but its been a while and I had help so I don't remember entirely. What tools are needed to gap them, and as far as wires go is there anything beyond just unplugging / plugging them? I don't recall having to unscrew / bolt anything but I'd like to know ahead of time.

    Thanks for the answers, this forum has been exceptionally helpful.

    You need a spark plug gapping tool and it should be just unplugging.

    Some spark plugs come "pre-gapped" and you shouldn't have to adjust them. Never hurts to check though.
