Spark plugs are an important part of your ignition system. The spark of electricity that the plug sets off across a small gap creates ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without a spark your car won't start or go anywhere. Because spark plug health is directly linked to your engine's performance, weak or bad spark plugs lead to problems like cold-starting or misfires during acceleration. Without healthy ones your car can't sustain maximum power. That being said, spark plugs are a very important part contributing to your Toyota's performance. They generally last a long time, around 20,000 to 40,000 miles. It is a good idea to check them on a regular basis to make sure that they are functioning properly. Sometimes spark plugs just need to be cleaned off. Some symptoms of bad or failing spark plugs other than misfiring might be slow acceleration, poor fuel economy, or difficulty starting your engine. You will find that spark plugs are made of different materials and often the type of material will determine how long they will last. The three main types used are copper, platinum and iridium. You should refer to your Toyota service manual regarding your vehicle manufacturer's choice so you get the right spark plugs for your model. Whatever material is suggested, choosing OEM quality spark plugs is a must. Check our webstore for a great selection of OEM Toyota spark plugs today.
