What are Spark Plugs?


A spark plug is a component of your car that is in charge of igniting the compressed fuel & air mixture in an engine by means of an electric spark, hence the name.

Should I check them?


Thankfully, spark plugs are typically built to last. Most vehicles won’t even need to check them until they’ve hit six digits on the odometer. Unless you start noticing the issues listed below, you’ll rarely have to worry about them.

How many do I need?


The number of spark plugs in a vehicle depends on the number of cylinders an engine uses. For example, the V8 engine uses eight spark plugs, one for each of the eight cylinders.
A V12 engine would have twelve, a V6 engine would have six, and so on.

Signs of Bad Spark Plugs


  1. Loud vibrations throughout the car, even while parked
  2. Car not starting even if the battery seems fine
  3. Engine Misfiring
  4. Engine surging – that is, your vehicle experience huge drops in speed, most notably in the RPM
  5. A drop in your average gas mileage, as a bad plug can severly hurt your fuel economy from incomplete combustion
  6. Your vehicle’s acceleration is much slower than what you’re used to
