As the title suggests, I’m looking for a diy guide on the spark plugs on my 2018 Honda CR-V 1.5 turbo. It looks simple enough, but wanna make sure I’m using the right torque specs, I have the right equipment, and I’m using the right (if any) anti seize.

Looks straight forward and typical of FWD 4 Cylinder vehicles.

Unhook battery.
Remove intake tubing.
Remove Honda Earth Dreams plastic resonator on top of engine.
Unhook electrical connections to each coil pack.
Unbolt coil packs, pull them out.
Use spark plug socket to remove spark plugs
Reinstall and reverse.

Your 2018 turbo has 6 year, unlimited mileage warranty on your plugs.

Use the oem spec NGK plugs
Check the gap and adjust if needed. Pre-gapped plugs are usually off.
absolutely no anti seize on NGK plugs
put a little dielectric grease on the terminal of the spark plug
Hand tighten the spark plug into the threading and then a final torque of 14 or 15 ft lbs with a torque wrench.

Consistency is KEY. Consistent gap and torque among all 4 plugs. Please dont hand torque them

I'll ask my bud for a torqe tool and do a vid on one for inspecting the plugs. my mileage is not eeven near due or the Maintenance minder lit for it that is one reason why I did not want to comment.
