Come to Beck & Masten Buick GMC South to learn what the benefits of replacing malfunctioning spark plugs are.
Perhaps the most obvious sign of worn spark plug wires is your vehicle just feels not quite right. It may start slowly with diminished gas mileage but could end up with no acceleration. Bad spark plugs or spark plug misfires may also lead to issues starting your engine, a rough idle, and low power. What starts as just a minor drawback could develop into a safety issue if not repaired in time. Regardless if you are already experiencing problems or just want to change the spark plug wires before the problems start, let us take care of it. Our technicians will investigate your car and update you with the best outcome to keep your vehicle on the road.
The biggest benefit of new spark plugs is that the car should run more efficiently, provide you with improved fuel economy, and could even reduce the pollution from your vehicle. The cost to replace the spark plugs is reasonable, too. While everyone has a view on the best spark plugs, we use the plugs that the manufacturer originally used. So, bring your vehicle in and change out those fouled plugs and see what you have been missing.
How Long Do Spark Plugs Last, well the answer is complex. Like many consumer products, there are spark plugs that may only last about a year or plugs that can remain functional for several years. While it can change depending on your driving habits, your car will have a specific replacement plan for the plugs. So, if your vehicle is showing symptoms of faulty spark plugs, bring it to us for a comprehensive inspection. Our experienced technicians will check the plugs and coils for wear or even simple misfires during normal operation and get you back on the road as soon as possible.
A spark plug is a part of the normal gasoline engine that delivers a small spark of electricity to ignite the fuel. A gasoline engine will not run or start without spark plugs. To ensure the engine runs its absolute best, we use the right spark plug gap. A gapping tool is used to make an exact measurement (somewhere between .020 and .040 of an inch) to make sure the correct spark plug gap is available. This is only applicable to gasoline engines because diesel engines don’t use spark plugs. Diesel engines use glow plugs in place of spark plugs.
