What kind of Spark plugs does a 2002 Camry LE use

My mom has a 2002 camry LE 4 cylinder and she didnt get the owners manual for the car and was wondering what type of spark plugs does it use? Is it platinum or iridium? I should pull to see which I will do tomorrow, but wanted to get results tonight if possible? thanks.

I believe they are NGK Iridium, do you have the owners manual?

I am fairly certain that they are iriidium plugs. I owned a 2002 Camry SE I4 2-1/2 years ago and I think I read iridium in the manual. I think they are not to be replaced until 90,000 miles if not 120k. I don't remember the exact figures, but it was not 60k like the platinums in my current car.

That car belongs to a relative that I don't get in touch with much now, so I don't have the reference materials.

They're not NGK, they're Denso. Toyota uses Denso for almost everything.

Glaring blue HID bulbs are NOT classy, and don't make your car look nice, no matter what that kid in the Civic told you.

Weird, my 2000 Camry came with NGKs dual ground platinums stock. I just switched them out a couple months back so I'm certain of that fact. I am certain my parents never switched them before I got the car from them.
