Does it take a lot longer than usual to get your car started after you hit the ignition than it feels like it should? Maybe the engine sounds a bit sick when you’re idling in a parking spot or at a streetlight? Or perhaps your car doesn’t accelerate quite as well as it used to?
If your vehicle is having any of the issues listed above, your spark plugs may need to be replaced. Luckily, this is a pretty straightforward process. And here at Hall Collision and Body Shop, our service staff is Gold Class I-CAR certified. With their expertise and specialized tools, our mechanics can fix any issues your vehicle has.
How do I know if I need new spark plugs?
There are a few telltale signs that indicate your vehicle’s spark plugs are going bad. Some of them may be shared with other issues, but taken altogether, they usually add up to fouled plugs:
Decreased fuel economy
Hard starts/reluctant turnovers
Rough engine idling
Spark plugs don’t last forever. Depending on the manufacturer and your driving habits, they’ll last somewhere in the 100,000-mile range. Your vehicle will have the same amount of spark plugs as cylinders, but that doesn’t mean they all need to be changed at the same time. Sometimes one plug fouls and the other are perfectly fine for tens of thousands of miles after.
Note: the above symptoms only apply to spark plugs in a gasoline-powered vehicle; diesel engines use glow plugs, which are not the same thing and are not interchangeable.
