How Often to Change Your Spark Plugs

It’s important for Naperville drivers to keep up with routine maintenance on their Ford vehicle. That entails knowing everything from how to change a brake light to how often to change your spark plugs. The latter is generally required every 30,000 miles, but this varies by model. Checking your owner’s manual for specifics on frequency is your best bet, but you can always connect with the River View Ford service center for additional assistance. For now, consult this guide for more information!

When Do I Change the Spark Plugs? 

What do spark plugs do? As a component of the ignition, the spark plugs move high-voltage current from the ignition coil to ignite the combustion chamber when you start your vehicle. Pay attention to the following when you ask yourself: When do I change the spark plugs? 

  • Your car starts slowly, or doesn’t start at all.
  • Your engine misfires.
  • Your engine runs roughly.
  • You experience rough idling.
  • Your car struggles to accelerate.
  • You are filling up your gas tank more often due to high fuel consumption.

Benefits of Changing Your Spark Plugs

When you change your spark plugs, you will not only eliminate or avoid the issues previously mentioned, but you will also experience benefits such as:

  • Enhanced Fuel Economy: As previously mentioned, damaged spark plugs result in higher fuel consumption, In fact, some estimates state that worn spark plugs reduce your fuel economy by as much as 30%, so a replacement will improve that.
  • Combustion System Consistency: Because spark plugs ignite the combustion chamber, they provide continuous production of combustion, ensuring your vehicle continues to run as it should.
  • Smooth Starts: Every time you turn the key in the ignition after a spark plug replacement will be completely smooth.
  • Improved Emissions: In addition to enhanced fuel economy returns, Montgomery drivers will have improved emissions.
