A worn spark plug reduces efficiency by up to two mpg
Alameda, CA (PRWEB) November 19, 2011
Winter is fast approaching and the weather is now starting to turn cold and wet. To better prepare vehicles for winter driving conditions, Alameda/Oakland auto repair shop, Alameda Auto Lab Car Repair and Service invites motorists to bring their vehicles to the shop and have them winterized. Alameda offers preventive maintenance suited for the winter conditions including flushing out coolants, replacing wiper blades, checking all lights, checking tires for safety and inflations, and checking belts and air filter. They also advise drivers to have spark plugs checked regularly.
“A worn spark plug reduces efficiency by up to two mpg,” says Robert Ramos of Alameda Auto Lab. “When a spark plug wears out it can cause inefficiency combustion, resulting in wasted fuel.”
