Some Kettering drivers often ask, “When do I change spark plugs” for my Mercedes-Benz vehicle? Experts recommend replacing them every 3,000 miles, but it varies based on your specific model. Learn more about replacing your spark plugs, then contact the Mercedes-Benz of Centerville service center if you need assistance or to schedule a service appointment.



When Do You Change Spark Plugs? 

Your car’s spark plugs are one of the ignition components working by moving the high voltage current from the ignition coil to ignite the combustion chamber when you start the car. If they’re not working appropriately, you’ll start seeing issues in your vehicle’s performance, such as:

  • Slow or no start
  • Engine misfire
  • Engine is running rough
  • Rough idling
  • Poor acceleration
  • High fuel consumption

What Are the Benefits of Changing Your Spark Plugs?

In addition to avoiding the issues listed above, there are many benefits of regularly changing your spark plugs. Learn more about the benefits of replacing your spark plugs during the maintenance schedule for your new Mercedes-Benz vehicle: 

  • Improved fuel economy – Having a worn-out spark plug reduces your car’s fuel economy by nearly 30%, and replacing it helps gain that back.
  • Consistent combustion system – Spark plugs allow for the continuous production of combustion, so your car’s system is running as it should be.
  • Your Vehicle Starts Smoothly – Replace your spark plug, and when you turn the key in the ignition, you’ll feel it start effortlessly.
