I want to buy Dielectric grease as preparation for the next spark plugs change, any recommendations for a specific one? I searched in e-bay and found many types and brands!
FYI, I use Permatex dielectric tune-up grease, part number 22058.
My local autoparts store carries it... but its $9.26 on Amazon. I've done 5+ tuneups (one being a 16 plug hemi ) and have replaced a bunch of sensors for friends/family.... still have over half that tube left. :lol:
Well @dar124, since you're posting in an 8 year old thread and asking a guy (Matt_) who has not been on the forum in over 3 1/2 years a question, I figured I'd go ahead & answer you.I recently had to replace my headlight bulbs and bought a small packet of the "bulb grease" for them at the same time. I figured a similar grease would be something good to use as I'm replacing misc electric components on my Commander. I recently replaced the Leak Detection pump and the Vapor Canister Purge Valve and figured I could have used some dielectric grease on each of their wiring connections. So I picked up a tube of the Permatex Dielectric Tune-Up Grease and also a can of WD40 contact cleaner.
Would there be an issue using either of these on the PCM?? I was going to disconnect each of the connectors on the PCM, spray them up with the contact cleaner, them them dry / air out, put some of the dielectric grease on the connections and then reconnect everything. Seemed simple enough, but didn't want to cause any problems, etc.

I can't say I'd feel 100% comfortable spraying anything on the PCM. If you inadvertently get any of that stuff on any of the sensitive interior components of the PCM, you're probably going to have a bad day.
I don't see a problem with putting dielectric grease on the connections for the PCM though.
Yep, always better to heir on the side of caution, so, you don't cause yourself any unnecessary headaches.Thanks @Big Blue Yea, I saw this was a really old thread and considered starting a completely new one. But I figured since it was a question about dielectric grease, I'd just post in this thread to keep everything together.
That makes sense about the PCM. I just figured the contact cleaner would be good to clean things up a bit if there was any corrosion etc starting, but definitely don't want to cause problems as I'm trying to do some preventive maintenance!!
