What Spark Plugs Do
The spark plug receives an electric charge from the alternator. The gap in the spark plug creates a spark that fuels the combustion of air and gas in your engine that moves the valves, which then turns the crankshaft. If the spark plug fails to create a spark, that cylinder will not combust, which results in stuttering, poor acceleration, stalling, and damage to the engine.
Most vehicles should have their spark plugs changed every 30,000 miles but check with your owner's manual for the proper service interval for your make and model. The longer that you wait to change out the plugs, the more carbon builds up on the electrodes and that leads to misfires in the engine. Due to the exposure to millions of tiny explosions, the plug gap can deteriorate also affecting your car's performance. This part is designed to wear out and be replaced.
