Good for many things, but lubricating is not one of them.

For spark plug wires, I would use one of the silicone sprays. Works well, should last longer.

Ward, the way Iíve always heard it:
If it moves and ainít sposeíta, use duct tape. Ifín itís sposedíta move an donít, use WD-40.

Tom, many, many years ago (1958) when I was an IBM Customer Engineer (read:
mechanic), we had a mantra:

If it is too small, peen it. Too big, file it.

If it moves, salute it. If it doesn't move, paint it. If you can't paint it, put a fence around it. If you can't fence it in, put a guard on it.

Reams, when I want to know the actual ingredients of something, I look at the
MSDS. That must always be the truth, under penalty of law. For WD-40 it is
50% paint thinner and a small amount of light machine oil. The rest is
propellant and a very small amount of snake oil, so they can make their
miracle claims.

BTW, they are now SDSs, part of global harmonization.

But they do allow latitude in repoarting %s. I remember seeing one, with 5 ingredients, each was was listed as 5-95%. :)
