A spark plug is a small but very important device. The spark of electricity that the plug generates in the air and fuel mixture provides the combustion needed to start your VW's engine. Spark plugs are designed to maximize fuel economy and allow your car to start efficiently when you stick the key in the ignition. Depending on how and where you drive, the life of a spark plug can vary. It helps to use high quality, OEM spark plugs that were built for your VW model for top performance. They can come in a range of materials, like platinum, iridium, and copper. Depending on the system your vehicle runs on, these can all have their own benefits - check your manual for recommendations. There are several signs your spark plugs might be failing that you should be looking out for. If your car is taking longer to accelerate, it could be from faulty spark plugs causing a reduction of power in your engine. If the spark plugs aren't igniting the air and fuel mixture in your vehicle properly, this can cause a drop in fuel economy as well. You can find OEM VW spark plugs here at Volkswagen Santa Monica.
