Spark Plugs in Tustin, CA

You put down your pedal and your Nissan typically takes off down the road with a pleasant rumble under the hood. However, if your spark plugs are getting older, you might notice a hesitation to accelerate, trouble starting your car in the morning, and even the smell of unburned fuel. Your owner's manual may suggest replacing the plugs after 105,000 miles, but if you purchased a used vehicle, it is more difficult to tell when the last time this routine maintenance was completed. Why would you need to replace your spark plugs? Find out with the following FAQ.


What Spark Plugs Do

The spark plugs ignite the gasoline and air in your engine to create the combustion that moves the pistons and valves, which in turn creates the force to spin your drive shaft, sending the car down the street. There is one spark plug for each cylinder in your engine. When one spark plug stops firing, the power of the engine becomes unbalanced. Your engine may fail to start, stall at the lights, or cause a sudden reduction in fuel economy.

Will Bad Spark Plugs Harm My Engine?

When the fuel is not burned efficiently in the engine, deposits of carbon can start to build up, which will damage the cylinders and pistons. If the problem is ignored long enough, you could face a total engine failure. The cost of replacing an engine will run well into the thousands. Replacing your spark plugs as recommended by your Nissan Owners Manual saves money, keeps your baby humming, and can be completed during other routine maintenance visits.
