It should be in the manual or ask the guys at the part store, its on the computer when they look up the plugs.

Ditto.

In my manual (for my '99 LX), it says 0.04 inches, the guy at the parts store says 0.044 inches. I use the 0.044 inches.

Spark plugs are usually pre-gapped anyways, unless you buy them for the wrong application.

You should always re-check the gap even if it sense pre-gapped. If the box was ever dropped or they were having a bad day at the factory they will be off. Even OEM ones from the dealer should be checked. And 0.044 is the correct gap. Click the image to open in full size.
