Default 2001 Honda CRV, smooth idle, slight pinging noise when gas pedal is pressed

Help!


2001 Honda CRV, 33,000 miles, oil change approx 4,500 everytime, replaced
the spark plugs tonight.

Before changing the plugs to Splitfire SF522D (specified in the retailers
handbook), I had average acceleration, and smooth idle.

Now I changed to the SF522D, gapped correctly to manufacturer specs, and I
hear a slight pinging during deceleration of any kind (sitting still or
coasting to stop).

Any ideas?

Never hear a vehicle ping at idle or deceleration.

It appears to me based on the info. in your post that the new plugs are
causing the problem. I suggest that you remove them and throw them in a
trash can and replace them with the same brand and type of plugs that were
in it before. If you don't know the brand or type--buy them from the parts
desk at the local Honda Dealership. Make sure you tell the person at the
parts desk that you want the same type of plugs that are installed in new
CRVs.

Hi,
Spitfire is snake oil. Lots of people had problem with it.
Just put in a set of NGK Platinum or Iridium plugs and
forget about plugs LONG time.
