When should I replace the spark plugs on my vehicle?

Luckily, spark plugs don’t wear out very quickly. On older vehicles you should replace the Spark plugs  every 30 000 km. However, this can go up to every 100 000 km for platinum or iridium spark plugs in modern vehicles.

In any car care matter, it’s always best to follow the manufacturer recommended service intervals. Review your vehicle’s  maintenance schedule to see when to replace your spark plugs on your vehicle make and model.

The use of metals like nickel alloy, platinum and iridium reduces the wear caused by high voltage sparks. These metals also help extend the interval between spark plug changes and decrease the misfire rate.
