Why replace spark plugs?

Every time spark plugs fire, the spark removes some of the metal on the plugs, increasing the amount of voltage necessary to fire the next time. They are also subjected to heat, gasoline, and oil that can reduce their effectiveness. For all of these reasons, it’s important to replace spark plugs on a regular schedule.

Friendliest Garage around!

I went in to this garage with a Groupon to get an oil change. When I left they gave me three pages of things that needed to be done to the car starting with the first page and the most serious items. That gave me a chance to budget, and I would phone in and I'd say I want page-one done on Monday, then a couple of months later I would phone in and say I'd need to page two done. Every time they came under budget, which is awesome! They are very friendly and they take a lot of time explaining to you about the car... an all-around nice atmosphere! ~Ann G.
