Spark Plugs Replacement in Stockton, CA
When you vehicle’s engine misfires, lacks power, or the check engine light comes “on”, spark plugs could be the culprit. At Toole’s Garage Stockton we offer engine misfire and check engine light diagnostics, and if it turns that spark plugs are to blame, we offer same day spark plugs replacement.
Spark plugs can last a long time – from 30,000 miles to as many as 90,000 miles. For a typical driver, that’s between 3-8 years. If the interval seems large, it’s because it depends on the material used to make the spark plugs. Copper spark plugs will typically last around 30,000 miles, while iridium spark plugs can last 90,000 miles, sometimes more. If it turns out that spark plugs need to be replaced, it can be accomplished the same day – diagnostics in the morning, car ready to pick up, with new spark plugs, before the end of the day.
Signs that Spark Plugs May Need Replacement:
- Lack of power
- Decreased engine performance
- Engine misfires
- Check Engine Light may come “on” – it could be steady or flashing ( if the check engine light is flashing, stop the car as soon as it’s safe to do so and turn off the engine – have it towed to a repair shop)
- Rattling noises can also signify that spark plugs are going bad.
