Spark Plugs Replacement in Fremont, CA
When your vehicle turns on the check engine light, or has a misfire, spark plugs could be the reason. Spark plugs, as the name suggests, generate the sparks that ignite the fuel-air mixture which powers your vehicle. Spark plugs have a lifespan that typically ranges from 30,000 miles to 90,000 miles – depending on the quality of the spark plugs, as well as the material used to manufacture them. At Fremont Auto Center we offer spark plugs replacement along with starting and charging system diagnostics and repairs.
Here are some of the symptoms that can point to spark plugs failing – if your vehicle exhibits any of them, it’s time to visit your local mechanic:
- The Check Engine Light (CEL) comes “on” – failing spark plugs will often cause an engine misfire and the onboard computer will turn on the check engine light.
- Rattling noises can accompany spark plugs going bad.
- Engine performance can decrease when spark plugs are failing.
How often should you replace spark plugs? As mentioned previously, typically you will need to replace spark plugs between 30,000 and 90,000 miles. It mostly depends on the materials used to manufacture the spark plugs. Copper spark plugs tend to last 30,000-40,000 miles, while the iridium spark plugs should be good for 80,000 to 90,000 miles.
Spark plugs replacement is a necessity – as the spark plugs fail, your vehicle can experience loss of power, frequent misfires, even catalytic converter damage.
