How Often to Change Your Spark Plugs

Some Taylor drivers wonder how often to change the spark plugs in their Honda vehicle. While experts generally recommend replacing them every 30,000 miles, it can vary depending on your specific model. Check your owner’s manual for more specific information. Find out more about when to replace these spark plugs below, and contact the Genthe Honda service center if you need help with your spark plugs.

 

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

Benefits of Changing Your Spark Plugs

In addition to avoiding some of the issues listed above, there are other benefits that can come from regularly changing your spark plugs. Find out the benefits of replacing your spark plugs as part of the preventative maintenance schedule for your new Honda vehicle:

  • Improved fuel economy – Having a worn out spark plug can reduce your fuel economy by as much as 30%, and replacing it can help gain that back.
  • Consistent combustion system – Spark plugs allow for the continuous production of combustion and leave your vehicle’s system running as it should be.
  • Your Vehicle Starts Smoothly – Replace your spark plug, and when you turn the key in the ignition, you can feel your vehicle start effortlessly.
  • Less harmful emissions – Replacing your vehicle’s spark plugs can not only help increase your gas mileage, but also improve your emissions.
