    Default GM Stopped making USA - Delco Spark Plugs ???.

    I heard from this forum that GM has stopped making Delco Spark Plugs and
    NGK ( China or Korea made spark plugs) is now making the Spark Plugs
    stamped for AC Delco ???. Is this true. If it is I guess I will have
    to use AutoLite as they are made in the USA and seem pretty good and
    good performance. What is happening to GM these days ??
    What about Delco Oil Filters - GM still making them ????.
    What about Delco Batteries is GM still making them ????.
    What about genuine GM Parts like fuel pumps , water pumps, geneators,
    etc... are they still making them ????.
    What is happening to Good Ol USA Products ????.

    AC-Delco doesn't make anything anymore. When GM spun off it's part
    divisions into Delphi, GM kept the AC-Delco brand name for it's
    aftermarket parts. Now GM puts whatever they feel like in those boxes.

    Many of the AC-Delco oil filters you see are now made by Champion Labs
    (provider of the fine STP and WalMart SuperTech brands as well). Delphi
    was still making some of them, but I think Delphi has targeted filter
    for shutting down.

    The bottom line is that the box saying AC-Delco means nothing in terms
    of who actually made the parts inside.

    Another good reason to use the higher priced "Genuine GM Parts"

    Feel free, but that would be a mistake. Champion plugs are pure junk. NGK
    has long been an excellent plug. If you're losing sleep over products not
    being made in the US, you're in for a very long sleepless life.

    Years ago, while keeping two stroke oil burning motorcycles running,
    I found the opposite to be true. NGK would foul for who know
    what reason, while you could install the oldest Champion in your
    bike and it would run. Also, Harley Davidson uses Champion plugs
    with their name, and seem to have nearly zero spark plug issues.
    Those Nippondenso plugs seem to be good too.

    GM needs to get back to its ROOTS and make things in the Good ol
    fashioned USA like they did in the good ol days.

    So does Ford, Chrysler, Whirlpool, Black & Decker, and every other
    appliance, tool, and auto maker. It won't happen. Only way to assure you
    buy only goods manufactured in your country is to move to China. What is
    even worse, we demand that these companies buy cheap overseas. We vote with
    our dollars and keep buying cheaper and cheaper merchandise.

    Does this mean our Impalas and Monte Carlos built in Canada are no good? I
    don't think so. BTW, GM was building their New Departure brand bearings in
    Japan as far back as 1957.

    It's just that the song we hear so often is;
    "Don't buy Japanese cars, because of "foreign parts" "

    but when GM outsources, suddenly it's OK
    because of "GM Quality"
