If a spark plug is not tight enough the engine may not run properly. I didn't want to strip the aluminum block. Just because I asked the proper measurment for tightness doesn't mean i'm cranking them down.

I had a plug back out of my Wrangler once - Thing shot out so hard it dented the hood. Jeep sounded like it dropped the headers or something until the coil burnt out and stalled the engine.
That was a fun 'mis-hap' to figure out at 11pm in the rain...

Torquing a plug correctly also allows the engine to cool correctly. It's the plug that carries the heat out of the combustion chamber to the heads to cool.

To all ,
I work in the NVH field for one of the big 2 and TO let everyone know, it is very important to torque all fasteners including sparkplugs to reconmended specs. You can develop unnecessary vibrations and frequencies in a powerplant that can damage other componets and set off your knock sensor Which equals retarded timing / lost power.

Right on Daffydak!
Especially lug nuts! All those hacks in the repair shops using there 1/2 drive impact guns to tighten lug nuts down cause alot of people brake problems. Especially rotor warpage!
