What is a Spark Plug Replacement?

What are Spark Plugs?

A spark plug is a device responsible for igniting the gasoline and air mixture in your engine. Each cylinder on an engine will have its own spark plug, which fires once every rotation.  Essentially, when the engine is running, the spark plugs are responsible for converting gasoline into power.  

Why are Spark Plugs important?

Spark plugs are a crucial part of your engine's performance - without them, the engine won't work. Spark plugs in good working order allow for you to get the best performance and fuel efficiency out of your engine.

When to get a Spark Plug Replacement?

Spark plugs are a wear-item, and require regular replacement to keep your Honda in optimal running condition, and to maintain good fuel economy. Honda engines should have spark plugs replaced every 160,000 kilometres, but may need to be replaced earlier if your vehicle is laggy or struggling to start, if the engine is experiencing misfires, or if the engine is idling roughly.

Consult with your service advisor at Mississauga Honda to have your Spark Plugs inspected with service, and replaced when necessary.
