Atlanta Car Dealer: Change Your Spark Plugs For Better Performance

Your Atlanta Car Dealer, the Southtowne General Motors Superstore wants you to think of your spark plugs as the heart of your engine. Their primary purpose is to ignite the fuel/air mixture in your engine which is who your engine generates power. This happens thousands of time a minute. Changing your spark plugs is something you can do at home, but plan for this fix to take a little while, especially if it is your first time. However, changing both your spark plugs and their respective cables will increase performance and gas mileage in your vehicle.

The average spark plug last 10 to 20 thousand miles. High end plugs can last almost 60 thousand miles. If you can’t remember when you had them changed last, it’s probably about time. As our car ages, oil can seep into the cylinder and interfere with the spark plug’s ability to fire and is detrimental to the life of the plug itself. Carbon can also build up on the plug and “foul” it.

In the old days you’d have to adjust the gap, but for modern vehicle you can pretty much just install your new spark plug right out of the box. No adjustment should be needed. Here’s a little tip. Spend a few extra dollars and get a high end set of plugs. Quality spark plugs produce a better spark which will directly affect your engine’s performance and fuel economy.

You should notice a significant improvement in the performance of your Atlanta Buick, GMC, Cadillac or Chevrolet. If you are uncertain about performing this simple maintenance, then feel free to contact the Southtowne General Motors Superstore in Atlanta and we an either walk you through your repair, or just do it for you. Regardless, don’t let your engine under-perform any longer. Change those plugs!!!
