Why Change Spark Plugs Every 80K to 100K miles?
Spark plugs do one thing and they do it quite well – ignite the fuel and air mixture in the engine’s cylinders to generate the power that moves your vehicle down the road. Like anything else in this world, a spark plug doesn’t last forever and needs to be changed periodically (refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual) by trusted Otobots mechanic. Using spark plugs beyond their recommended service life can lead to poor engine performance and may even leave you stranded.
You should change the spark plugs when: 1. Engine has a rough idle (your engine will produce a rough and jittery sound while producing larger vibrations through the car), having trouble starting your car (having bad or worn spark plugs), your engine misfires (when your engine misfires it causes the vehicle to halt for a fraction of a second and then continues it’s usual movement, engine surging (when a vehicle sucks in more air than usual it can cause the vehicle to jerk and then slow down or continually start and stop, high fuel consumption (you’ll notice that your vehicles fuel economy can decrease by up to 30% due to incomplete combustion), lack of acceleration (if your vehicle is accelerating poorly it is fairly easy to tell).
At Otobots, our technicians have access to a vast database system to help us to provide you with an accurate diagnosis of your vehicle’s spark plugs and a repair that is done correctly the first time.
