Spark Plugs and Wires in St. Charles, IL

Spark plugs may be small parts, but they have a big role in keeping your car moving. Worn spark plugs can reduce your fuel efficiency, while a broken spark plug could seriously damage the interior of your engine cylinder, leading to costly repairs. Have the trusted professionals at Autopractor replace your spark plugs and wires before they have a chance to cause problems.  

What Do Spark Plugs Do?

In short, spark plugs create a spark that ignites an air/fuel mixture in your engine, leading to an explosion that makes your engine produce power. Your spark plugs are a crucial part of your ignition system, which starts your car and keeps it running. 

How Long Do Spark Plugs Last?

Spark plugs made from cheap materials may only last 30,000 miles, while spark plugs made from more durable materials like platinum or iridium may last 100,000 miles or longer. Your vehicle owner’s manual should tell you how often to replace your car’s spark plugs.

How Do I Know if My Spark Plugs Need Replaced?

If your car is having any of these problems, it may need the spark plugs replaced:

  • Reduced fuel efficiency
  • Decreased performance
  • Rough start
  • Pinging, rattling, or knocking noises
