Woman Changing Spark Plugs

“When do I change spark plugs in my car?” This is a common question we get asked by Martinsville and Danville Nissan drivers, and it’s also a great way to gain more insight when you want to take the best care of your vehicle. Learn more about how often to change spark plugs and why replacing them when needed will keep your Nissan sedan, truck, or SUV running in great condition with the experts at Gunter Nissan of Martinsville.

When Do I Change Spark Plugs In My Car?

While your spark plugs may seem like a small component within your Nissan, they play a vital role as they are a part of your vehicle’s transmission. They work by moving the high voltage current from the ignition coil to ignite the combustion chamber once you start your vehicle. Due to the fact that spark plugs are responsible for starting your vehicle, drivers can notice issues right away if something isn’t working properly. Keep an eye out for any of the following when starting your vehicle:

  • Slow or no start
  • Engine misfire
  • Engine is running rough
  • Rough idling
  • Poor acceleration
  • High fuel consumption

Benefits of Changing Your Spark Plugs

Knowing how often to change spark plugs in your car will not only help you avoid many of the maintenance problems listed above, but also ensures drivers get a more reliable performance out of their Nissan whether they are simply cruising around town or on a road trip far from home. Check out some more benefits of changing your spark plugs below:

  • Improved fuel economy – Having a worn-out spark plug can reduce your fuel economy by as much as 30%, and replacing it can help gain that back.
  • Consistent combustion system – Spark plugs allow for the continuous production of combustion and leave your vehicle’s system running as it should be.
  • Your Vehicle Starts Smoothly – Replace your spark plug, and when you turn the key in the ignition, you can feel your vehicle start effortlessly.
  • Less harmful emissions – Replacing your vehicle’s spark plugs can not only help increase your gas mileage but also improve your emissions.
