Meanwhile, it should be remembered that in some situations there is a need to replace the candles before the deadline for their replacement.
When do I need to replace my spark plugs as soon as possible?
First of all, the signs that the time has come to replace the spark plugs are uneven engine operation - the car starts jerking while driving, the engine does not start immediately when the ignition key is turned.
Visual inspection can show that the spark plugs are out of order. There must be no soot on the working spark plugs. If you unscrew the spark plugs and find soot or the parts are wet, this is a good indication that the part needs to be replaced.
Cracks in the ceramic insulator of the spark plug also indicate that the part is out of order.
It's time to change the candles, if you noticed the appearance of brown "skirt" on the electrode.
Watch out for an increase in the gap between the candles - this is also a sign of a necessary replacement.
