Symptoms of Bad Spark Plugs

symptoms of bad spark plugs

Bob Howard Acura invites you to discover what the symptoms of bad spark plugs are.

The most noticeable sign of faulty spark plug wires is that your vehicle just seems not quite right. It would probably start slowly with diminished fuel economy but could progress all the way to no acceleration. Bad spark plugs or spark plug misfires can also cause problems starting the engine, a rough idle, and loss of power. What starts as a minor inconvenience could develop into a safety concern. Regardless if you are already experiencing issues or just want to replace the spark plugs before the issues start, let us take care of it. Our technicians will investigate your car and let you know the best course of action to keep your car on the road.

How Do Spark Plugs Work?

What Are Spark Plugs?

The spark plug is a part of the normal gasoline engine that delivers electricity to ignite the fuel and air mixture. A gasoline engine can’t start or run without spark plugs. We make sure to use the correct spark plug gap, so the engine performs at its best. A gapping tool is used to make a precise measurement (between .020 and .040 of an inch) to ensure the correct spark plug gap is available. This is only relevant to gas engines because diesel engines don’t use spark plugs. Diesels use glow plugs in place of spark plugs.

Why Should I Replace My Spark Plugs?

Cost of Changing Spark Plugs

The biggest benefit of replacing the spark plugs is that your vehicle should run more efficiently, provide you with improved gas mileage, and may even reduce the pollution level of your car. The cost to replace the spark plugs is very reasonable, too. While everyone has an opinion on the best spark plugs, we have the plugs that the manufacturer originally installed. So, come on in and swap those plugs and see how much acceleration you’ve been missing.

How Often Should You Change Plugs?

How Often To Replace The Spark Plugs On A Vehicle?

How Often Should You Change Plugs On A Vehicle, well the answer is complex. Like many products, there are spark plugs that might only last about a year or spark plugs that can remain functional for many years. While it will change depending on your driving habits, your vehicle will have a specific replacement schedule for the spark plugs. So, if your car is showing symptoms of faulty plugs, bring it to us for a complete check-up. Our qualified automotive technicians will check the plugs, wires, and coils for problems and give you choices to get you out on the road ASAP.
