Replacing Spark Plugs

Some Reidsville, NC drivers wonder how often to change the spark plugs in their Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram vehicle.

When Do I Change Spark Plugs?

Your spark plugs are one of your ignition components that work by moving the high voltage current from the ignition coil to ignite the combustion chamber as soon as you start your vehicle. If the spark plugs aren’t functioning properly you’ll start to see problems in the performance of your vehicle, including issues like:

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