Signs your Toyota needs new spark plugs
Worn or damaged spark plugs usually give warning signs that they’re overdue for replacement. Here are a few signs to look out for.
While bad battery is one of the reasons your Toyota may be difficult to start, there are times that your spark plugs are the culprit. When they’re dirty, damaged or worn out, the engine has to work harder to start your Toyota as there’s not enough spark to get things going.
- Check engine light comes on
No one likes to see the check engine light come on but worn or failed spark plugs may cause the computer to illuminate the light. The reason your Toyota computer alerts you when the spark plugs are faulty is because they can cause engine misfire, which might lead to more issues.
Rough idling can be another signal that the spark plugs need to be replaced.
One of the reasons a car may not accelerate the way it should is because the spark plugs are unable to properly ignite the fuel-air mixture in the combustion chamber. If you press down on your gas pedal and your Toyota struggles to accelerate, you should have the spark plugs checked for potential replacement.
