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.

Engine Misfires

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.

Energy Surging

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.

The spark plug wires you select will have a direct impact on how your car's ignition works. If you want to get optimal performance from your engine, go for premium spark plug wires.

Spark plug wires can affect your vehicle's ability to idle smoothly and start quickly. Here are few tips to choosing the right spark plug wires for your vehicle given by our experts in Washington Automall.

Ask Your Technician

If you are uncertain what does your car need, it is highly recommended you talk your technician about it. They will look at your engine and current setup and will recommend the best option. They can either instruct you on what parts to but to complete the work in the garage or they can replace them. They may charge you for consultation.

Right Number of Wires

You will need spark plugs equal to the number of cylinder in your car. You can check with the manufacturer to see how many cylinders you have or count the wires already in place to determine the number of wires you need. If you are unsure of what you need, purchase large number of wires since it is inexpensive.

Ask the Car Manufacturer

You would want to talk with your car's manufacturer before you purchase any car part. Most often, they will ask you to come to their dealership; however you can also ask what you need to buy to replace the wire on your own. In order to determine what wires are going to work, you can look at your car's manual or look under the hood to see the wires already in place.

Buy New

Never buy used wires, they are unpredictable, and you do not know whether they have 10 or one more spark in them. To get the optimal performance, go for new spark plug wires. You can find most wires in car part stores or online, and they are reasonably priced. You should also consider buying new spark plugs while you are at it.

Like people, batteries like to be fed to stay warm even if they are not getting enough exercise. We unwind on numerous holiday feasts; similarly a car's battery needs it annual routine. Even if you live in a moderate climate, your car's battery will suffer self-discharge if it is stored for a long time. The trouble starts when a depleted battery's electrolytes meet cold temperature. This problem can be avoided if you have standard battery storage and a charger. Follow these tips to keep your car's battery alive given by our experts at Washington AutoMall.

Prepare

Inspect the battery's cables and terminals before attaching leads, replacing worn parts and cleaning off any corrosion. To prevent further corrosion, use dielectric grease. To install the alligator clips, all you have to know is that negative is represented by black and positive by red. Make sure the charger is unplugged and install a quick disconnect as well.

Buy the Correct Equipment

Luckily, effective battery charger costs less than changing the battery on a yearly basis. However, do not buy a cheap charger, buy a maintenance, storage, or float charger. They are equipped with advanced tech to keep the battery at the right level without overcharging. For long term storage, they are perfect.

The Alternatives

Even though you can always remove your battery and keep it indoors where the temperature is mild, the battery can still discharge over the season. Since charging creates hydrogen gas which is a fire hazard, you have to be careful where you place the battery. If you remove the battery, you can put it on the charger in your garage. With modern plastics, you can skip the wooden block between the concrete floor and the battery, as the battery chemicals are completely insulated from the floor.

Charge and Test

The tender might be in charge mood for up to a couple days when it first starts up but should then switch to its storage mode, signified by a light on the tender. A multimeter set to voltage can verify the state of charge, if you have doubts that the charger is doing its job; just unplug the charger before testing. Tender will not charge any lower than 12.6 volt and lower than it indicates problem with either the battery or charger.

Want to get your battery replaced? Drop by Washington Automall in Washington. We also have outlets in Morgantown, South Hills and Belle Vernon.
