Plugs Causing Engine Noise through Amplifier
After installing NGK plugs (instead of Bosch) in my K12RS, I am experiencing engine noise, more like static, through the amplifier that my XM radio runs through. I turned off the radio, same static. At first I didn't know what was causing it as it is not in sync with the rpm's of the engine, just tons of static, then it goes away for a while. Hit the gas and it comes back. Let off, it eventually goes away. Strange.
I am assuming that the plugs are causing this at this point, as naturally I threw away my old plugs and can't test it. And of course I have to wait until Monday to buy new plugs as none of the local parts stores carry the Bosch plug for the K12.
Anyone else have this problem?
