Spark plugs ignite the fuel mixture and air within the cylinders. This continuous ignition keeps you car moving. Spark plugs can cause problems with the vehicle's engine if they are not checked regularly, cleaned or changed when need be. Our experts at Washington Automall have compiled a list of few signs for you to change your spark plugs.
High Fuel Consumption
You will notice your vehicle's fuel economy decreasing up to 30 % due to incomplete combustion if your spark plugs are deteriorated. All you need to do is have your spark plugs changed to get back to your vehicle's best possible level of fuel consumption.
Misfiring of engine causes the car to halt for fraction of a movement and then continue its usual movement. It indicates that the vehicle is not functioning as smoothly as it should due to one or two cylinders not being fired properly leading to higher amounts of emissions.
Trouble Starting the Car
When your car doesn't start, you think two things: the battery is down, or the tank is empty. You overlook the possibility of having worn spark plugs. You are going nowhere if your car if your spark plugs do not produce the spark required keeping the vehicle on road. If your battery is being drained due to faulty spark plugs, you should get them replaced immediately.
The vehicle engine starts working inefficiently when your vehicle sucks in more air than the usual amount in a combustion process, it causes the car to jerk and then slow down o start and stop continually. It is also named as engine hesitation and if this occurs in traffic, dangerous situation can arise.
Lack of Acceleration
It is easy to tell if your vehicle is accelerating poorly. When you step on the gas and the car doesn't accelerate like it used to, you know that something is wrong. You may also get this feeling that your vehicle is trying really hard to pull itself along. It can be fixed by changing the spark plugs of the vehicle.
