When Should You Replace Your Spark Plugs?

So, what are spark plugs exactly? Your spark plugs are one of your ignition components. Spark plugs work by moving the high voltage current from the ignition coil to ignite the combustion chamber as soon as you turn on your vehicle. If the spark plugs aren’t properly functioning you’ll start to see problems in the performance of your vehicle. Some of these mechanical issues include: 

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

Why Change Your Spark Plugs?

Right off the bat, replacing your worn-out spark plugs can help prevent some of the issues listed above. However, there are other great reasons to regularly change your spark plugs. Some of the biggest advantages of regular spark plug replacements include, but are not limited to:

  • Improved fuel economy – Having a worn-out spark plug can reduce your fuel economy by as much as 30%, and replacing it can help gain that back.
  • Consistent combustion system – Spark plugs allow for the continuous production of combustion and leave your vehicle’s system running as it should be.
  • Your Vehicle Starts Smoothly – Replace your spark plug, and when you turn the key in the ignition, you can feel your vehicle start effortlessly. 
  • Less harmful emissions – Replacing your vehicle’s spark plugs can not only help increase your gas mileage but also improve your emissions.
