Come to Beck & Masten Buick GMC North to learn what all of the benefits of replacing spark plugs are.
The most obvious sign of faulty spark plugs is that your car just feels a little ‘off.’ It would probably start slowly with something as simple as lower gas mileage but could end up with a lack of acceleration. Fouled spark plug wires or spark plug misfires will also lead to problems starting your engine, a rough idle once started, and even low power. What might start as just a minor annoyance could end up being a safety hazard. Regardless if you are already experiencing problems or want to change them before the problems start, let us take a look. Our technicians will check out your vehicle and update you with the best fix to keep your car on the road.
The greatest benefit of changing your spark plugs is that your engine will run better, provide you with improved gas mileage, and may reduce the pollution from the vehicle. It is a reasonable cost to replace the spark plugs, as well. While everyone has a view on the best spark plugs, we use the spark plugs that the manufacturer initially installed. So, bring your car in and replace those fouled plugs and see how much you’ve been missing.
How Often Should You Replace The Spark Plugs, well it’s complex. Like many vehicle components, there are plugs that might last a year or plugs that may remain functional for several years. While it can change depending on your driving habits, your vehicle will have a unique replacement plan for the spark plugs. So, if your car is showing symptoms of faulty spark plugs, you can bring it to us for a complete examination. Our experienced techs will check the plugs, wires, and coils for wear or even misfires during normal operation and get you out on the road ASAP.
The spark plug is a part that delivers a small spark of electricity to ignite the fuel and air mixture in a normal gasoline engine. A gasoline engine can’t start or run without spark plugs. To ensure the engine runs its absolute best, we use the right spark plug gap. A gapping tool makes an accurate measurement (usually between .020 and .040 of an inch) to make sure the spark plug gap is correct. This is only relevant to gas engines because diesel engines don’t use spark plugs. Diesel engines use glow plugs in place of spark plugs.
