Most drivers aren’t sure how often to change the spark plugs in their Mazda models. It’s typically recommended that they be replaced every 30,000 miles, but this depends on your specific model. For a more accurate mileage marker, check your owner’s manual or ask one of the technicians at our Eddy's Mazda of Lee's Summit service center. To learn more about when to replace these spark plugs, trust the team at Eddy's Mazda of Lee's Summit. If you need help replacing them, contact our service center today!

When Do I Change Spark Plugs?

It’s best to change your spark plugs before you vehicle starts exhibiting these issues, but if you don’t know when to check, it can be difficult to catch when they are starting to go bad. Your spark plugs are one of your ignition components that work by moving the high voltage current from the ignition coil to ignite the combustion chamber as soon as you start your vehicle. If your spark plugs aren’t functioning properly, there will be some signs you’ll notice. These issues include:

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

Benefits of Changing Your Spark Plugs

In addition to avoiding some of the issues listed above, there are other benefits that can come from regularly changing your spark plugs. When you keep up with your vehicle’s preventative maintenance schedule, your new Mazda can benefit from the following:

  • Improved fuel economy – Having a worn out spark plug can reduce your fuel economy by as much as 30%, and replacing it can help gain that back.
  • Consistent combustion system – Spark plugs allow for the continuous production of combustion and leave your vehicle’s system running as it should be.
  • Your Vehicle Starts Smoothly – Replace your spark plug, and when you turn the key in the ignition, you can feel your vehicle start effortlessly.
  • Less harmful emissions – Replacing your vehicle’s spark plugs can not only help increase your gas mileage, but also improve your emissions.
