When Do I Change Spark Plugs?

When you start your car, the spark plugs direct the high-voltage current from your ignition coil to ignite the combustion chamber. Suppose the spark plugs aren’t functioning correctly. In that case, you’ll experience some problems in your vehicle performance on your East Hills drives, such as: 

  • Poor acceleration
  • Inconsistent idling
  • Slow start or won’t start at all
  • Engine running rough
  • Engine misfiring
  • Poor gas mileage
  • And much more

Benefits of Spark Plug Replacement

several other benefits come from routine spark plug replacement when driving around Bayside:

  • Improved fuel economy – Worn-out spark plug can reduce your fuel economy on Forest Hills streets by nearly 30%!
  • Consistent combustion system – Spark plugs deliver constant combustion and help your car run efficiently.
  • Your vehicle starts easily – With regular spark plug replacement, your vehicle will easily start when you turn the key. 
  • Improved emissions – Spark plug replacement not only improves your fuel economy but also enhances emissions, which is better for the environment and keeps you in compliance with DEQ requirements.
  • More peace of mind – No one enjoys getting stuck on the side of the road waiting for roadside assistance.
