    SP Gap was .040 to .041--Now .044.

    Pulled and regapped Ngk Iridium Plugs.
    Before Idle was a little rough--Now, Very Smooth.
    Car started much easier.
    Highway Tachometer at 70 MPH reads 23K.
    60 MPH around 20 RPM.
    Can't report on Gas.
    Engine 2.4 in 06 LX.

    23k rpm at 70 is really spinning it up there.
    Probably meant 2.3k rpm.

    Since I re-gapped my plugs my car has never ran smoother.
    Engine noise is minimal and idle vibration is not there.
    If you have any rough idle, this might be a fix for you.
    I have run a half talk of gas--well, down to the half mark
    and have driven 150 miles.
    About normal for my car.
    She sounds & runs like a brand new car

    FYI regapping plugs doesn't change rpm at highway speeds. Once torque converter locks that's it. If it made some change it means regapping wasn't the issue, the plugs need to be changed, the power loss was enough to cause too much extra throttle so the torque converter wasn't locking in.

    I never said the RPM's Changed at any Speed, I was just making a observation.

    I never said I had any Power Loss.

    I have NGK Iridium that have about 30K on them and when I pulled them
    they all looked the same. All had the same color without any noticeable difference
    from one plug to the other.

    I have not had one issue with my transmission.
    I do at least one service every year to the trans.
    I did one today and the fluid was pink and looked new.
    I have owned this car for 70,000 miles and have serviced
    the trans about 10 times using only Honda Fluids.
    Some people might think this is excessive, I don't care,
    my car's drive train seems to be running very well.
    I also serviced my Power Steering today and did it
    a few times last summer using Honda PS fluid.

    I drive an 06 and like it.
    I don't want or need a new car or payment.
    I also take good care of the interior as well.

    I try to stay on top of the CR-V's care.

    Thanks for the information. I've done this to my V. It helped a lot when it's idling. It runs much smoother.
