South Pointe Chevrolet invites you to discover what the faulty spark plug symptoms are.
The most noticeable sign of bad spark plugs is your vehicle just seems a little ‘off.’ It would probably start slowly with something as simple as reduced fuel economy but could end up with no acceleration. Fouled spark plugs or spark plug misfires will also cause problems starting the engine, a rough idle, and low power. What starts as just a minor inconvenience could develop into a safety issue. Whether you are currently experiencing issues or just want to change your spark plug wires before the issues start, let us take care of it. Our experienced technicians will investigate your vehicle and update you with the best fix to keep your car on the road.
The spark plug is a part that delivers electricity to ignite the fuel and air mixture in the normal internal combustion engine. Without spark plugs, an engine can’t start or run. To ensure the engine runs its absolute best, we use the correct spark plug gap. A gapping tool is used to make an exact measurement (between .020 and .040 of an inch) to ensure the spark plug gap is correct. This is only applicable on gas engines because diesels don’t use spark plugs. Diesel engines use glow plugs in place of spark plugs.
The greatest benefit of new spark plugs is the car should run more efficiently, give better gas mileage, and could reduce the pollution level of your car. The price to change your spark plugs is reasonable, too. While some people have an opinion on the best spark plugs, we have the spark plugs that the manufacturer originally installed in the vehicle. So, bring your vehicle in and change out those fouled plugs and see what you have been missing.
How Soon Should You Change Spark Plugs, well it’s complex. Like many vehicle parts, there will be spark plugs that may last about a year or plugs that can remain functional for several years. While it depends on your driving behavior, the vehicle will have a model-specific replacement schedule for the spark plugs. So, if your car is having symptoms of fouled plugs, bring it to us for a comprehensive check-up. Our knowledgeable automotive technicians will check the coils and plugs for wear and give you choices to get you out on the road as soon as possible.
