Spark Plug Wire Heat Shields

Recommended Posts

Got some new ACDelco wires today. No metal heat shields on the plug side. I figure since they were put on at the factory they must serve some purpose. Has anybody ever managed to reuse theirs or would it be best to just buy eight new ones (they do sell them at the dealer and they have an ACDelco part number).

 

What do you think?

I don't know if anybody is interested, but I found new ACDelco heat shields for the replacement spark plug wires. The ACDelco part number is 8006. I got mine at www.oehq.com (as an aside, this is a great site for ACDelco parts, it's hard to find some of these sometimes at places other than dealers).

I just did my plugs and wires a couple of weeks ago and I just reused them.

Did plugs and wires today, I sure wished that I would have reused mine, they were still perfectly good. The new ones were like $4.00 a piece! Anyway, replacing plugs and wires at 90k miles made a surprisingly noticeable difference in engine smoothness, particularly at idle. I was really surprised at the difference it made.
