Re: How do I tell ?

Ahhh, on the engine ?
I want to replace the spark plugs and following recommendation on other threads I'm going to use NGK PFR7B's.
I'm driving a 1995 WRX import so think it should be ok.

Cheers Pete. Going to check and order them. Seems cheapest is on ebay, 25 for 4.
I'm sure that this has been discussed before but what oil are you using, I've heard that using synthetic can cause problems because it's too thin ?
