Spark plugs generate the spark that ignites the fuel-air mixture which powers your vehicle. Over time they will fail and will need to be replaced. At Toole’s Garage in San Carlos we offer complete Toyota care, including spark plug replacement.
Depending on the quality of the spark plug materials, they can last as little as 30,000 miles (copper spark plugs ) to as much as 90,000 miles (iridium spark plugs). When we select the spark plugs for replacement, we follow Toyota recommendation for your particular model and year of production.
When spark plugs start to fail, you may notice engine misfires, and the Toyota onboard computer will illuminate the check engine light. Whenever you see the check engine light “on”, bring your vehicle to Toole’s Garage in San Carlos for an inspection. Our nationally ASE certified technicians will inspect and diagnose your vehicle, and will also perform a free digital vehicle inspection, so you always know the overall condition of your Toyota.
Spark plugs replacement can be accomplished in a single day, and we can combine it with an oil service, if your Toyota is due for one. Our friendly service advisors will provide you with repair recommendations and will let you know when you can expect to get your Toyota back. In the meantime, we offer local Uber/Lyft so you can get back home or to the office.
All work performed by our technicians is covered by our nationwide 3 year / 36,00 mile warranty. So for any Toyota needs, not just spark plugs replacement, call our San Carlos auto care shop – we are looking forward to meeting you and servicing your Toyota.
