How Often to Change Spark Plugs

row of spark plugs

If you’re like many Williston and New Town drivers, you want to service & maintain your car as best you can, but you’re also not sure of proper protocol. Enter our maintenance guides. They can help put you in the right direction in terms of making sure all maintenance is up-to-date. So, how often should you change your spark plugs? In most Honda vehicles and other vehicles for that matter, experts recommend replacing spark plugs every 30,000 miles or so. Keep reading or contact us to learn more!

When Do I Change Spark Plugs? 

Your car’s spark plugs help you reliably start the engine by working with other ignition parts. When you turn the key (or push a push-button start), high voltage current from the ignition coil is sent to the spark plugs to start the combustion process within the vehicle’s combustion chambers. But if your spark plugs aren’t working correctly, then you’ll likely experience issues such as:

  • Engine misfires
  • Slow starts or no starts
  • An engine that runs rough
  • Rough idling
  • Reduced acceleration capabilities
  • Higher-than-normal fuel consumption

Accordingly, if you happen to be experiencing any of the above-mentioned issues on Watford City or Dickinson roads, the chances are high that it’s time to get in touch with our parts department to order spark plugs.

Advantages of Changing Your Spark Plugs OFten

Regularly changing the spark plugs in your car isn’t just something you should do to avoid negative consequences. It also can have several inherent advantages. Here are just a few worth noting:

  • Consistent Combustion – Spark plugs allow for continuous combustion to take place, leaving your vehicle’s system running in tip-top shape.
  • Increased Fuel Economy – Having a worn out spark plug can decrease your fuel economy by up to 30%. Replacing a spark plug, conversely, can restore normal fuel economy, increasing it from subpar levels.
  • Smooth Starts – Replace your spark plugs, and when you start your engine, it’ll be a smoother experience every time.
  • Less Emissions – Replacing your vehicle’s spark plugs can improve the emissions of your Honda vehicle.
