When Do I Change Spark Plugs?

The spark plugs are one of your ignition components, and they work by moving the high voltage current from the ignition coil to ignite the combustion chamber once the vehicle has started. When they are not functioning correctly, you’ll notice issues in your vehicle’s performance, as well as issues like:

  • Engine misfire
  • Engine is running rough
  • High fuel consumption
  • Poor acceleration
  • Rough idling
  • Slow or no start

Why Change Your Spark Plugs?

Not only will you avoid any of the issues that we mentioned above, but there are also plenty of benefits that come from regularly changing your spark plugs.

  • Improved fuel economy – Worn out spark plugs can reduce your fuel economy by as much as 30%, and replacing it helps gain that back.
  • Consistent combustion system – Spark plugs allow for the continuous production of combustion, allowing your vehicle’s system to run as it should.
  • Your Vehicle Starts Smoothly – Replace your spark plug, and you will feel your vehicle effortlessly start when you turn the key in the ignition.
