[200q20v] carbon on spark plugs

Asking about (and not specifying) a 10V engine is certainly a
"factor" in the effort that is wasted to tell you that you seem to be
using the _wrong_ type of plugs for a '91 200q 3B engine. As to "why
a plug gets carbonized"--it was hard for me to understand (from what
you wrote) just what your question was: carbonized plugs?, loud pop?
stalling? These might be related symptoms...or not.
Have you checked for any engine fault codes recently? If not, you
should do so. When was the oxygen sensor replaced? What kind of
driving do you do-- do you often drive on highway at decent speeds
and RPMs? Sometimes just getting out and doing that will eliminate
carbon build-up from short-distance, low-speed driving.
