When Do I Change Spark Plugs?

Spark Plug Man

Changing your spark plugs is an important but often neglected maintenance task. Many Turnersville drivers ask us, “When do I change spark plugs?”, as it’s not exactly common knowledge. The answer? Every 30,000 miles is a good guideline, but there are often differing requirements for different models. The service center at Nissan of Turnersville covers how often to change spark plugs and more below for interested Cherry Hill drivers.

When Do I Change Spark Plugs?: Signs You Need Spark Plug Replacement

Sicklerville drivers who want to know exactly how often to change spark plugs can find out with the help of their owners manual. But it’s always good to be aware of the symptoms that tell you you need spark plug replacement. Here are a few things to look out for:

  • Engine is slow to start or won’t start
  • Engine misfiring
  • Engine idling roughly
  • Slow or unsatisfactory acceleration
  • Higher fuel consumption than normal

The Benefits of Spark Plug Maintenance

You can usually find spark plug changes among the service specials of a Woodbury-area service center like our own, and that’s a good thing. Regular spark plug maintenance can go a long way when it comes to car performance. You’ll see benefits in each of the following areas:

  • Improved fuel economy: Your fuel economy can dip down to 30 percent below its optimal level if you don’t know how often to change spark plugs. Replacing them will set your MPG right.
  • Better starts: You may have gotten used to an engine that’s slow to start, but replacing spark plugs can return starter functioning to normal!
  • Fewer harmful emissions: When your spark plugs are newer, your fuel burns more cleanly. The result? Your emissions become less harmful to the environment.
  • Combustion system maintenance: Spark plugs are a vital part of your combustion system. Replace your spark plugs to get consistent combustion with your engine.
