Operation of spark plugs

The service life of the part depends on many factors:

  • quality of parts;
  • operating conditions;
  • the condition of the cylinder-piston group;
  • feature of the mixture.

Replacement of sparks, under optimum conditions, will take place in 30-60 thousand kilometers. Regular sitting in traffic jams, bad mix, disruption of the power system reduce the period of operation. To extend the life of parts it is necessary to use high quality fuel and conduct regular inspection.
