Bob Moore How Often to Change Your Spark Plugs

spark plugs

Have you ever asked yourself, “I wonder if I should have my vehicles spark plugs changed?” If you have, you are not alone. This is a very common question that customers ask their service advisor at the Bob Moore Auto Group. And as a general rule, we recommend replacing spark plugs every 30,000 miles, which falls in line with most manufacturers’ recommendations. You can check your owner’s manual or the manufacturer’s website for information specific to your make and model vehicle. Or give us a call at 405-239-3581, and we will verify the timeframe for your car and make an appointment for you if it is time for a replacement.

Issues of Old Spark Plugs

Of course, you would like to get the full 30,000 miles of use from your spark plugs. However, if they are beginning to cause problems, time should not be a consideration. Replacements are very affordable and will eliminate all of the following issues you could be noticing:

  • Your vehicle is slow to start or will not start.
  • The engine is running rough and does not sound or feel like it is running smoothly.
  • The engine is misfiring or not running consistently.
  • The engine does not idle smoothly or sound normal.
  • You notice that your fuel consumption is increasing for no apparent reason.
  • You feel a lack of power when you try to accelerate.

If you are experiencing any of these common issues, contact your nearest Bob Moore Group Service Center to schedule an inspection.

Benefits of New Spark Plugs

While you are sure to be relieved to have eliminated any of the issues above, you will also be happy to enjoy these additional benefits.

  • Your vehicle will start smoothly and quickly. You will no longer be worried about getting stranded somewhere during your busy day.
  • Fully functional spark plugs will improve your vehicle’s function and decrease your vehicle’s emissions into the environment. So new spark plugs make your vehicle eco-friendlier.
  • Everyone loves to save money, and your new spark plugs will help increase your vehicle’s fuel economy. Costing just a few dollars each, new spark plugs will quickly pay for themselves in fuel savings.
  • The spark from your spark plugs is an essential part of the combustion motors function. So, when the plugs provide a constant and consistent spark, your motor will perform at its peak. This allows for smooth and responsive acceleration and power as you drive down the road.

Does your vehicle have an odd, sputtering sound to the motor? Does the engine sound like it is burping or belching rather than purring smoothly like a contented kitten? If so, it is time to contact the Bob Moore service team to schedule an inspection appointment.

If we determine that you need new spark plugs, our staff will provide you with a complete cost estimate. With your approval, we will complete the work quickly and cost-effectively to get you back on the road.
