What are spark plugs? 

To start, spark plugs help start your vehicle by producing the combustion in the engine needed to do so. They are crucial to your engine performance and fuel economy. 

So, how often should I change them? 

Depending on how often and the type of vehicle, the spark plugs should be changed between every 20,000 to 40,000 miles. If they are look worn or damaged, this would indicate your engine is misfiring or operating at excess heat levels. Some ways to tell if your vehicle is due for a change is engine misfires, you are having troubles starting your vehicle, the fuel economy is lower, or your vehicle is accelerating too slowly.
