Why Your Spark Plugs Should Be Professionally Gapped

Last updated 5 years ago

If your vehicle’s spark plugs aren’t firing efficiently, it could be because they aren’t properly gapped. This must be done very precisely, as a slightly larger or smaller gap between the center and side electrodes of a spark plug will cause problems down the road. When you go to a car repair shop to have your spark plugs gapped professionally, the technicians will clean the spark plugs, gap the spark plugs precisely using a feeler gauge, adjust the gap, and then use the gauge again to make sure it was adjusted properly.

To have your vehicle’s spark plugs gapped properly in order to ensure optimal efficiency and performance, come to A-1 Auto Tech, Inc. of Mountain View, CA.
