In this video, I will show you how to install spark plugs in a Honda Accord.
Do not put anti-seize on the spark plug thread. Car manufacturers don’t put anti-seize when building the engine. NGK specifically tell customers not to put it on. Doing so will allow for over torquing of the spark plug. The torque spec specified is for installation without anti-seize.
Info from NGK:
NGK spark plugs feature what is known as trivalent plating. This silver- or chrome-colored finish on the threads is designed to provide corrosion resistance against moisture and chemicals. The coating also acts as a release agent during spark plug removal. NGK spark plugs are installed at the factory dry, without the use of anti-seize. NGK tech support has received a number of tech calls from installers who have over-tightened spark plugs because of the use of anti-seize. Anti-seize compound can act as a lubricant altering torque values up to 20 percent, increasing the risk of spark plug thread breakage.
