Each time your engine is started, your spark plugs have created a spark that spurred the engine to life. Thanks to the heat the sparks create, the tips of the spark plugs erode little by little over time. Once the gap between spark plugs becomes too large because of this erosion, your vehicle will begin showing signs of spark plug wear including engine misfires, poor fuel efficiency, running loudly, and generally poor performance. Once a spark cannot be created at all, your engine will no longer start.
When you notice signs of spark plug wear or if you have reached the recommended interval to change your spark plugs, you can head to the Fox Toyota dealership in Clinton TN for spark plug replacement.
Different manufacturers have different recommendations for spark plug replacement intervals. You can find a recommendation specific to your vehicle in your owner's manual. In general, many modern vehicles are now equipped with long-lasting spark plugs that can make it about 100,000 miles before they burn out. However, we would recommend getting your spark plugs inspected and potentially replaced before their max wear date for maximum performance and to be sure that you don't end up with a car that doesn't run at an inconvenient time.
