How Often to Change Spark Plugs

Many Union drivers find themselves unsure if it’s time for them to change their spark plugs. Are you wondering, “when do I change spark plugs?” The general recommendation is to change your spark plugs every 30,000 miles, but this number can vary depending on your specific vehicle. To get a more exact number, you should consult your vehicle’s owner’s manual. Learn more about how often to change spark plugs with the service department at VIP Honda.

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

If you’re still wondering, “when do I change spark plugs?”, schedule a service with VIP Honda to help you drive confidently on the South Plainfield roads.

Why Change Your Spark Plugs?

  • Your Vehicle Starts Smoothly – When you replace your spark plugs, you can feel your car start effortlessly. This will help you drive more confidently on the Kenilworth roads.
  • Improved fuel economy – A bad spark plug can bring down your fuel economy by 30%. Replacing that spark plug can help gain your fuel economy back and restore it to normal.
  • Consistent combustion system – Replacing your spark plugs help your vehicle’s system run like normal. When your combustion system runs like normal, there is less chance of backfiring and rattling.
