That little engine part called the spark plug performs a huge job in delivering a vehicle’s power, performance, dependability and fuel efficiency and should be replaced periodically. Contact us today to book an appointment.
Spark plugs are one of the hardest working parts of a vehicle. A spark plug can fire 400 times per minute per cylinder or 1,600 times a minute on a four-cylinder engine. Many car owners delay spark plug repair on their vehicles, even after they have failed. This is a mistake since fouled, damaged or worn out spark plugs can lead to engine damage, reduced fuel efficiency and poor performance like misfiring, hard starting and sluggish acceleration.
If you spot any of the following symptoms, it’s recommended having your vehicle checked to prevent more costly problems from developing.
Drivers should consult their owner’s manual for the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended spark plug replacement intervals. We at Sandy Lane Auto recommend replacing all of the plugs at the same time and with the same type of spark plug that the vehicle was originally equipped.
Replacing spark plugs is a relatively inexpensive maintenance task and can be replaced on your next service appointment at Sandy Lane Automotive.
