Most of the vehicle manufacturers make sure that their vehicles come with equipment that has an extended life. An extended life spark plugs can maintain a particular gap for approximately 100,000 miles.
Most people suggest that one must replace spark plugs as soon as they reach 80,000 miles. By this time, these spark plugs are 80% worn out. Once the gap between spark plugs widens, the engine performance rapidly deteriorates.
Moreover, if the spark plugs have been at a place for 100,000 miles, they might seize in the cylinder heads or tend to break. In this case, repair costs might touch the sky. Since the spark plugs necessarily require a replacement, it is better to get new ones as soon as possible. This will help you avoid any further damage or underperformance of the vehicle.
Even if you have a vehicle which consists of extended-life spark plugs, make sure that you examine them after every 30,000 miles.
In addition to this inspection, there are some other repairs that one must make before it is too late.
If you were using platinum or double platinum spark plugs, make sure you replace them with the same kind of plugs. If the vehicle has spark plug wires as well, get a regular check for them as well.
