I've searched for this problem using the custom search but can't find any info here on this site regarding my problem.
I went to replace my NGK plugs two months ago on my 1.8t AWM and noticed that the plugs were only finger tight when I went to remove the old ones. I know that I torqued them down to 23 ft/lbs when I installed them. No codes were thrown and the torque wrench is only about 3 years old. It's never been abused so it should be ok.
So I replaced the old set of plugs with new NGK's (again torqued to 23 ft./lbs. and went for a test drive. Car felt awesome. Flash forward to this weekend and I noticed that there was some degradation in performance. I checked the plugs and found that they were back to being only finger tight again. Has anyone else had this problem?
Should I use Loctite or should I tighten them more than 23 ft./lbs? I'm not sure what is causing this, but I've got to get this figured out/fixed. Any ideas as to what's causing this? Any/all help would be appreciated!
Happy New Year everybody!
