A : Spark plugs also a consumable parts in your car like other parts, it won't last forever. Everytime they ignite, the spark removes some of the metal on the plugs, increasing the voltage necessary to fire the next time.
Besides age, many other things can cause your spark plugs to wear out. They're subjected to a number of forces inside the engine, including heat, gasoline and oil that can reduce their effectiveness. High performance engines and engines that rev to high RPMs also tend to wear out quicker.
~ Engine has a rough idle ~
When your engine idling normally it produces around 1000rpm and sound the engine gives off is constant and smooth but if your spark plugs aren’t performing as they should, your engine will produce a rough and jittery sound while producing larger vibrations through the car. Not having this checked can lead to costly damage being done.
~ Having trouble starting your car ~
Many people put their car not starting down to being out of fuel or having a flat battery. One possibility you may overlook is having bad or worn spark plugs. If your spark plugs don’t produce the spark needed to get the vehicle moving, then you’re going nowhere. It is also possible that faulty spark plugs are causing your battery to drain. If so you need to have your battery and spark plugs changed as soon as possible.
~ Your engine misfires ~
When your engine misfires it causes the vehicle to halt for a fraction of a second and then continues it’s usual movement. This means the vehicle isn’t functioning as smoothly as it should because one or more cylinders aren’t firing properly, which can also lead to higher amounts of emissions.
~ Engine surging ~
When a vehicle sucks in more air than usual in the combustion process it can cause the vehicle to jerk and then slow down or continually start and stop, which means the vehicles engine is working inefficiently. This is also known as engine hesitation and dangerous situation can arise if this occurs in traffic.
~ High fuel consumption ~
If your spark plugs have deteriorated you’ll notice that your vehicles fuel economy can decrease by up to 30% due to incomplete combustion. If you notice you have to fill up more often than usual it can be caused by deteriorating spark plugs. To get back to your vehicle’s optimum level of fuel consumption all you’ll need to do is have your spark plugs changed.
~ Lack of acceleration ~
If your vehicle is accelerating poorly it is fairly easy to tell. It feels as if the vehicle doesn’t want to respond when you put your foot down, or it does but not instantly as you’ve become accustomed to. It can also feel as if your vehicle is trying really hard to pull itself along. This ‘sluggishness’ can be easily fixed by having the vehicle serviced with a spark plug change.
A : As spark plug play a role like a lighter to engine, without ignition the mixture of fuel & air can’t be burn up, so you may not able to start your engine or engine direct turn off when the spark plug totally not function.
A : For normal circumstance, car manufacturer will install standard spark plug (except those engine which originally used laser Iridium spark plug) into engine of all new car. However those spark plug just had most basic performance and features, that's the reason NGK to designed higher performance and longer usage life spark plug for car owner to had an option to maximize their engine performance but lower fuel consumption.
A : You may bare the risk of it will damage your engine as a good quality of spark plug had to 100% fit into your engine and perform during your engine is running in high heat. You may see the result as picture below:
