How Often to Change Your Car’s Spark Plugs

Changing spark plugs


Picture this. You’re driving around Bellbrook, and your car is idling rough. Maybe it’s not starting at all. You sit there and scratch your head, but you can’t figure out what’s going on. It’s possible the problem is with your car’s spark plugs. Service experts like the folks here at the Bob Ross Buick GMC service center recommend replacing your spark plugs every 30,000 miles. Still, sometimes issues like rough idling or engine misfires can require replacement sooner. Want to know for sure if your spark plugs need to be replaced today? Our service technicians are happy to help you diagnose spark plug issues and install new ones, if needed.

When Do I Change the Spark Plugs in My Car?

It’s a good idea to replace your car’s spark plugs around every 30,000 miles, as discussed above. That having been said, there are many other issues that are “smoking guns” indicating your spark plugs may need to be replaced far sooner than that, including but not limited to:

  • Slow or no start
  • Engine is running rough
  • Poor acceleration
  • Engine misfire
  • Rough idling
  • High fuel consumption

Top Five Benefits of Changing Your Spark Plugs Often

It’s no secret that maintaining your car frequently with things like oil changes and brake service has many benefits. The same is true for replacing your spark plugs. Here are five compelling reasons to change your spark plugs out often:

  • Improved fuel economy – Did you know fuel economy can decrease by as much as 30% around Kettering with worn-out spark plugs? Replace yours today to gain back these efficiency losses.
  • Consistent combustion system – Spark plugs let continuous combustion take place in your vehicle’s engine. If you want your vehicle to run smoother, adding new spark plugs is a good idea.
  • Your Vehicle Starts Smoothly – Start your car easily every time by replacing the spark plugs, which provide key power needed to start the engine.
  • Less harmful emissions – When you replace old spark plugs, you stand to not only increase gas mileage, but also improve emissions.
