Are Spark Plugs Part Of An Auto Tune Up?
Yes absolutely they are. Spark plugs get old. They either get carbon deposits building up on them or they just deteriorate in effectiveness with time. When either of these things happen they do not spark well; no spark, no flame. If there is no flame, that particular cylinder does not produce any power. The fuel does not burn and is sent out the exhaust pipes. This is why it hurts our fuel efficiency and why our car runs poorly.
If you think that your car or truck may be in need of a tune up, be sure and take it to a spark plug auto repair shop that will do things right. Not only do you need to make sure they use the highest quality parts, but also that they replace each part that needs to be replaced. At A-1 Auto Tech, Inc. we are experts and will get your car tuned up right for a very affordable price.
Do Ignition Wires Get Replaced In A Tune Up?
Yes usually. Auto ignition wires and other electrical parts go bad just like spark plugs. They are constantly in use whenever the vehicle is running and so they get worn out. So in some cases the spark plugs are fine, but the spark plug is still not delivering any spark. It could be a worn out spark plug wire, or coil or some other electronic part in the car’s ignition system.
Fortunately all of the electrical parts that wear out are designed to be replaced so they are relatively inexpensive. Depending on the year and make of the car, they have different set ups and parts used to perform their functions. But still over all a tune up is pretty easy to do and does not require a tremendous amount of labor. So having an auto tune up done is affordable. For most people it is complicated enough that it is something you will want to have a auto repair shop do for you.
What Is An Ignition Coil?
An auto ignition (or spark) coil is a form of an induction coil in an car’s ignition system that converts the battery’s low voltage to the higher volts needed (thousands of volts) to create an electric spark. See Wikipedia. The spark plug wires connect the ignition coil to the spark plugs.
