How Often to Change Spark Plugs

Spark Plugs on a Black Background

Most Boca Raton drivers know when to get their oil changed or have their tires rotated, but drivers might not know about parts that last longer. For example, how often do you change your spark plugs?

  • You should change your spark plugs less often than your serpentine belt but more often than your oil.
  • Some experts recommend every 30,000 miles while some spark plugs promise to last 100,000 miles.
  • The bottom line: check the manual of your Jaguar or contact our service center at Jaguar Palm Beach.

While you should obviously change your spark plugs if you’re noticing warning signs driving around Delray Beach, it’s good to replace them before they go bad.



When Do I Change Spark Plugs?

Spark plugs do just what they say: they create a spark. By transferring the high voltage current of the ignition coil into a spark in the combustion chamber, the spark plug kicks off the combustion reaction that makes your Jaguar engine go.If the spark plugs aren’t functioning properly, you can see performance issues like:

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

Benefits of Changing Your Spark Plugs

Spark plug replacement should be part of your Jaguar maintenance schedule. Changing your spark plugs is not just a good way to avoid costly repairs later; it’s a good way to ensure ideal performance every day you drive around Delray Beach or Wellington. Benefits include:

  • Improved fuel economy and emissions– Old spark plugs can impact fuel economy by up to 30%, and that wasted fuel would often end up hurting your emissions.
  • Consistent combustion system – Engines are built to run consistently, and even slight changes like an occasional misfire could cause damage.
  • Your Vehicle Starts Smoothly – Replace your spark plugs and you’ll likely notice an effortless start when you turn the key or push the start button.
