A common question we hear at the Pomona Kia service center is, “When do I change spark plugs?” In most cases, this spark plug service is recommended every 30,000 miles.

If it is time for spark plug service, the Kia service experts at Pomona Kia would be more than happy to assist you. It is important to keep you with your Kia maintenance schedule, and that includes regular spark plug service.

Spark Plug Service – Warning Signs

What is the purpose of spark plugs? These ignition components move the high voltage current from the ignition coil to ignite the combustion chamber when you start your car. If you notice any of the following issues with your vehicle as you are driving around Chino and Covina, it could be a warning sign that it’s time for spark plug service:

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

Perks of Replacing Your Spark Plugs

Replacing your spark plugs on a regular basis is part of your Kia maintenance schedule. Why is it important to keep up with this task?

  • Better Efficiency – Worn out spark plugs can actually decrease fuel economy by as much as 30%!
  • Better for the Environment – In addition to increasing your gas mileage, replacing worn-out spark plugs can also improve your vehicle’s emissions.
  • Consistent Combustion – Spark plugs allow for the continuous production of combustion so your vehicle performs as the manufacturer intended on the roads of Ontario.
