Spark plug replacement in Winder, GA

Does it ever happen to you, you try to turn your car ignition on, but it just doesn’t start? Or maybe it takes longer than usual? Does the engine make a weird sound when your car is idle in a parking spot or at a traffic light? Do you feel like the car’s acceleration has reduced a bit? 

Well, if the answer to any of these questions is yes you might have a spark plug problem. Although this doesn’t happen often, it is still important to get it replaced as soon as possible. If you live in or around Atlanta, you can get it replaced here at Akins Ford in Winder, GA.


Signs you need a new spark plug

Spark plugs don’t need to be replaced often but if your car has logged anywhere around 50,000 miles it is a good idea to ask your mechanic to check the spark plug. You can also get it cleaned on one of your regular service visits. But if notice any of the following signs, it might mean you need to get the spark plug replaced as soon as possible-
  • 1. Difficulty starting the engine
  • 2. Surges or misfires with the engine
  • 3. Decreased fuel-economy
  • 4. Decreased acceleration
  • 5. Reluctant turnovers

Keep in mind that the above-mentioned symptoms apply only to spark plugs in a gasoline-powered engine. The diesel engines use glow plugs which are different from these and these two are not interchangeable.
