When Do I Change Spark Plugs?

What exactly are spark plugs? Spark plugs are part of your ignition and they move high voltage current from the ignition coil to ignite the combustion chamber when you start your car. Basically, spark plugs help start your car. Here are some things to look out for to get an idea of when to change your spark plugs:

  • Slow or no start when you turn on the ignition
  • Engine misfire
  • Engine is running rough
  • Rough idling
  • Poor acceleration
  • Poor gas mileage
