This is definately a newb question. Lately i've been having starting issues so i am going to replace the spark plugs, my question is how do you torque the plugs? How many turns and how tight do i need to fit it into the hole? And where do i get it gapped right? Thank you

I believe the torque spec for the spark plugs is 18 ft/lbs. It's hard to say how many turns that is, but if you don't have a torque wrench then just get them on snug. There is no need to make them too tight, and if you do you'll run the risk of damaging the threads. To gap the plugs, just get yourself a good feeler gauge and you should be all set.
