When Do I Change Spark Plugs?

To know the best intervals to change them, you should consult your owner’s manual. This will give you a more accurate answer. Why is it important to change spark plugs? Your spark plugs are one of your ignition components that work by moving the high voltage current from the ignition coil to ignite the combustion chamber as soon as you start your vehicle. If the spark plugs aren’t functioning properly your vehicle could start having issues, including:

  • Slow or no start
  • Engine misfire
  • Engine is running rough
  • Rough idling
  • Poor acceleration
  • High fuel consumption
