If spark plugs are found to be at fault, we can perform spark plugs replacement and have your car ready for the road, usually the same day.
Here are additional symptoms that can indicate spark plugs problems. It’s time to visit your friendly mechanic if your vehicle exhibits any of these issues – even if it turns out that spark plugs are not at fault, it’s important to get your vehicle checked out by a professional:
