When Do I Change Spark Plugs?

Your spark plug helps to initiate the process of starting your vehicle by initiating the electric current from the ignition system to the combustion chamber. With that being said, many Farmingdale drivers may be wondering, “When do I change my spark plugs?” and we’re here to help answer that question.

The general recommendation, which you can confirm in your owner’s manual, is around every 30,000 miles. Again, this could vary so be sure to explore your owner’s manual for the specific number recommended for your Cadillac vehicle. You can contact our service team at Atlantic Cadillac if you need help with your replacement!

When Do I Change Spark Plugs? – Signs To Look For

Your spark plugs facilitate the movement of an electric current between your ignition components and the combustion chamber. The spark plugs help ignite the combustion chamber when you start your vehicle. You should be conscious of the signs that your spark plugs aren’t functioning, because it will be pretty clear: 

  • Your engine is slow to start or won’t start at all
  • Engine misfire
  • The engine is running rough
  • Rough idling
  • Poor or slow acceleration
  • Increased fuel consumption

Why Change Your Spark Plugs?

Not only does changing your spark plugs eliminate the issues we discussed above, but there are a few other benefits Smithtown drivers will experience when they change their spark plugs: 

 

  • If you have worn out spark plugs your fuel economy could be reduced by as much as 30%
  • Spark plugs keep your vehicle running smoothly around Melville and allow for continuous combustion production.
  • Replacing your spark plug allows your vehicle to start effortlessly as soon as you turn the key in the ignition. 
  • Reduce your emissions by replacing your vehicle’s spark plugs.
