What spark plugs do you guys recomend? I have now NGK Iridium.

Also how can I cancel the water sensors from expanding tank and windshield washer? I had to relocate expanding tank and cancel the windshield washer.

Thanks

jump a piece of wire, short piece will do between the two open ends on the small connector that plugs into the level sensor. Or use a paper clip and make a U and push it into the socket. Wrap with electrical tape.

Edit: This is to get rid of the water level sensor.

Guys I'm having the following problem, I have check engine light on and after I scan for error codes I receive:

Activation, ignition coil, cylinder 1
Activation, ignition coil, cylinder 2

Still the car runs fine, without issues.
After I erase the codes and let the car idle (no check engine light) in a few minutes 4-5the check engine comes back on and I can hear a small change in engine tone just when the check engine light comes up, after that the idles fine.
