Some Lindenhurst drivers wonder how often to change the spark plugs in their Honda vehicle. Generally, experts recommend replacing spark plugs every 30,000 miles, though it can vary depending on your specific model. Your owners manual can provide more specific recommendations. Learn more about when to replace these spark plugs below, and contact the The New Babylon Honda service center if you need help with your spark plugs.

When Do I Change Spark Plugs?

Spark plugs are one of your ignition components. They work by moving the high voltage current from the ignition coil to ignite the combustion chamber when you start your vehicle. If the spark plugs aren’t functioning properly you’ll likely start to experience performance problems as you make your daily Bay Shore commute. Typical issues include:

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

Benefits of Changing Your Spark Plugs

On top of avoiding the problems listed above, there are other benefits that can come from regularly changing your spark plugs. Replacing your spark plugs as part of the preventative maintenance schedule for your new Honda vehicle can provide the following advantages:

  • Improved fuel economy – Driving with an old and worn out spark plug can reduce your fuel economy by as much as 30%. Replacing it can help restore your vehicle’s efficiency.
  • 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 – Install fresh spark plugs you can feel your vehicle start effortlessly when you turn the key.
