Round Rock Nissan welcomes you to discover what the what the signs of damaged spark plug wires are.
The most obvious sign of faulty spark plug wires is your vehicle just feels a little ‘off.’ It would probably start slowly with reduced gas mileage but could progress to no acceleration. Faulty spark plug wires or spark plug misfires can also cause problems starting your engine, a rough idle, and loss of power. What might start as only a minor annoyance could become a safety hazard. Whether you are already having problems or simply want to replace the spark plugs before they happen, let us take care of it. Our trained technicians will investigate your car and provide you with options for the best course of action to keep your vehicle on the road.
A spark plug is a component that delivers a spark of electricity to ignite the fuel and air mixture in the normal gasoline engine. Without spark plugs, an engine can’t run or start. We make sure to use the correct spark plug gap, so the engine performs at its best. A gapping tool makes an exact measurement (usually between .020 and .040 of an inch) to make sure the correct spark plug gap is available. This is only applicable on gasoline engines because diesels don’t use spark plugs. Diesels use glow plugs in place of spark plugs.
The biggest benefit of new spark plugs is the car should run better, give you improved fuel efficiency, and could even reduce the pollution from the vehicle. It is a reasonable price to change the spark plugs, too. While everyone has a thought on the best spark plugs, we use the spark plugs that the manufacturer initially used. So, bring your car in and replace those dirty spark plugs and see how much you’ve been missing.
How Long Do Plugs Last On A Vehicle, well the answer is complicated. Like many products, there are spark plugs that might last about a year or spark plugs that can last several years. While it will change depending on your driving behavior, the vehicle will have a unique replacement plan for the spark plugs. So, if your vehicle is showing symptoms of bad spark plugs, bring it to us for a comprehensive inspection. Our knowledgeable techs will check the plugs and coils for problems and provide you with options to get you back on the road as soon as possible.
