The ignition system of the car is quite complicated and consists of many different parts. One of those parts is a spark plug, which is responsible for providing an electric charge to the combustion chamber of the engine so that the car starts. Spark plugs can go bad over time and that is why you need to get them replaced whenever they start to show problems, otherwise, your car will have trouble starting. One common symptom of failing spark plugs is a big drop in fuel economy. Failing spark plugs can cause an increase in fuel consumption up to 30%, which can take a toll on what you're paying at the gas station. Inconsistent burning of fuel can also cause your engine to misfire at times. At some point, this can cause engine knocking that can severely damage parts over time Engine knocking is basically extreme engine misfiring that can damage things like your piston heads or cylinder valves. Your ignition system is also what helps you accelerate without hesitation. If you experience a loss of power, it could be your plugs as well. It's important to get OEM replacement spark plugs when the time comes to change yours out. You can find the best Ford spark plugs here on our webstore.
