Spark Plugs: When Should I Have Them Replaced?

Tags:
(Posted on Mar 14, 2017 at 06:00AM by Michelle Bogle)
ford automotive service centre vancouver bcEver wonder what spark plugs do – specifically, what their job is within your vehicle? You’re not alone. Many drivers are unaware of this small, but essential automotive part.
 
Simply put, a spark plug is a device in the engine that produces electric sparks to start the ignition. Over time, they can wear out and require replacement. If that’s the case, you may notice one or all of these warning signs:

Your car won’t start
If your spark plugs are unable to produce an electric spark to start the ignition, your car won’t be able to start – simple as that. So, if your battery is fine and you have a full tank of gas in your vehicle, you may want to have one of our Technicians inspect your spark plugs. It's an inexpensive fix.
 
Your engine misfires
If your vehicle’s engine misfires, it could mean that a spark plug wire or the tip of the spark plug that connects to the wire are damaged. This is characterized by intermittent stumbling or sputtering sounds from the engine. If the engine is left to misfire, exhaust emissions will increase, engine power will decrease and fuel efficiency will drop. Don’t ignore this problem – bring your Ford to our Service Department for an inspection.
 
Your car’s fuel economy has declined
Speaking of poor fuel efficiency, did you know that a faulty spark plug can cause your vehicle’s fuel economy to drop as much as 30 percent? That adds up to a lot of extra trips to the gas station. Stop the bleed by having the spark plugs replaced on your vehicle. Your wallet will thank you! 
 
Your car is slow to accelerate
A spark plug is made of materials that work together to produce a spark hot enough to ignite the air-fuel mixture. When those materials wear out, the effectiveness of the spark plug is reduced, which can significantly decrease the acceleration of your vehicle. If you notice that your car is running sluggishly or does not accelerate as quickly as it used to, it may be attributed to a spark plug that needs replacing.
