Spark Plug Buying Guide

Spark plugs are a vital part of any petrol combustion engine and simply put if your plugs aren’t performing correctly, your car will fail to “fire” and ignition is reduced. Spark plugs work by channelling the electric current from the ignition system (coil pack) and igniting the fuel within the combustion chamber. This sounds dangerous but these controlled explosions (ignitions) make your petrol Ford car run. 

Like most vehicle parts, spark plugs are susceptible to wear and tear and will need replacing from time to time, usually when you start to notice poor fuel economy, sluggish driving or on your standard service interval. whilst modern day Ford cars are controlled by computers, making car maintenance a little harder for the avid mechanic, spark plugs remain one area of the motor vehicle that the avid mechanic can tackle themselves. 

Easy to check, fix, and replace Genuine Ford Spark Plugs will get your car firing again.
 
Let’s Cool it down
