Champion Spark Plugs

The Power and Performance of Champion

The company pioneered the use of iridium on spark plugs back in the 1970s to provide enhanced ignition and longer plug life. Today Champion widely uses iridium and precious metal technologies as well as F.I.S.S. resistor (Fired In Suppressor Seal) technology and MLR (Metal alloy Low ohm Resistor) technology to manufacture spark plugs in an array of materials and designs providing a full offering of OE replacements and enhanced ignition.

Featured Products

Champion's extensive experience and great commitment to perfection led to design enhancements that optimize the performance of every product they make including spark plugs made for a wide range of cars, SUVs, trucks, and racing applications. As the result, the company earned a global reputation for high quality and performance-proven ignition solutions. The brand also manufactures spark plug wires and other ignition system specific wiring.

Champion is also a longtime sponsor of various racing events, cars, and series including two series run under sanctioning by IMSA (International Motor Sports Association). And success at the track inevitably translates into innovative maintenance solutions for everyday drivers including but not limited to iridium, platinum, double platinum, and racing spark plugs that adhere to the industry’s toughest standards.


Champion has been the leading spark plug manufacturer for over 100 years. Founded in Boston in 1908 by Frank D. and Robert A. Stranahan, the company moved to Toledo 2 years later to be near its customer Willys-Overland, which at the time was one of the largest producers of automobiles in the U.S. Champion grew to become a Fortune 500 Company and was purchased by Cooper Industries in 1989. Today it's a division of Federal-Mogul Corporation.

Work great on an F150 V8
2005 Ford F-150
| Posted by | (Tinley Park, IL)

I bought these to replace the defective two piece OEM plugs that break off on my 2005 F150 V8. These are specifically designed to prevent breakage upon removal and can handle a lot of torque because they are a one piece design. The dealer wanted to install so called improved Motorcraft plugs and I said no way. Once the old plugs were out and these were in, the engine seemed to run a little better. Buy the way, the longer you wait to change the plugs, the more likely you will end up with serious engine damage.

So Far, So Good
2006 Ford F-150
| Posted by | (Shrub Oak, NY)

I used these to replace the OEM plugs on 2005 and 2007 Ford F-150's. If you've been paying attention, you know most of them need to be replaced, BEFORE they get too old (IE: "carboned" up). These are a much improved design over the OEM version. Seem to work great, so far, after about a year and 30,000+/- miles. Maybe slightly better gas mileage... A little expensive, but we think it was worth it to eliminate a VERY expensive and difficult future problem of broken off plugs.

This is the plug you want!
2000 Plymouth Breeze
| Posted by | (Sunapee, NH)

If you buy this plug to replace the originals on your Ford/Mercury/Lincoln product, this is one you need. The reason is that the originals are prone to break INSIDE the head. When the original Motorcraft plugs were manufactured, the nut and electrode sheath are machined separately, then pressed together. The electrode sheath on this and the original plug are long. About 3 inches long. As you can see from the photo, the electrode sheath is 2/3 length of the plug. On the top of that, the plugs are recessed into the head to reach the upper cylinder wall. What happens over time is that the sheath rusts to the head and when you attempt to replace the plug, sheath, and nut.

Do Not Forget To Check The Gap!
1983 Toyota Corolla
| Posted by | (Hilltop, MN)

The new spark plugs (and spark plug wires purchased separately) work great, and the factory gap of 0.44 inches held up during shipping (however, you always, always, always have to gap check your spark plugs! Do not neglect this!). My 12 year-old Honda Accord (150k miles) runs almost like it did when I first bought it, and I've increased my tank mileage by about 10-20 miles. It's not a huge difference, but that adds up over time. I'll installed these in a year or earlier if anything goes wrong, but they've been installed for a month, and so far, everything is ok.

Exactly as described!

This is an exact replacement and works great. Fixes slow start and rough running engines. Followed the replacement guide and ordered this spark plug replacement for my machine. It fit perfectly the first time and I won't have to replace it again for a while! Very easy install. I will definitely buy these again.
