Porsche Problems Due To Faulty Spark Plugs In Allentown

by schearerswpadmin May 14, 2019

As a Porsche owner in Allentown, it is imperative that you understand the role played by your spark plugs and what symptoms could indicate worn out spark plugs. The job of a spark plug is to give your engine a spark that ignites the fuel in the combustion chamber, which is where power is generated for the engine.

Spark plugs play a critical role in the internal combustion of your engine. It is your spark plugs that transmit electrical signals at predetermined times in order to provide that spark and essentially allow your Porsche to run.

The kind of spark plug that your car needs varies by make and model; your car’s spark plugs are designed for that vehicle specifically. Spark plugs that are bad or failing will inhibit your driving ability and cause your motor to simply stop working, in a worst case scenario.

Similarly to motor oilair filters, or fuel filters, your spark plugs require regular maintenance in order to ensure your engine is working as it should. Spark plugs should be replaced approximately every 30,000 miles to 50,000 miles. Regardless of the warranties you have, there are still situations where your spark plugs might indicate signs of showing wear and tear even if you haven’t reached that mile marker. Below are the common symptoms indicative of spark plug failure, necessitating you bring your Porsche to a certified mechanic immediately.

Slow Acceleration

As a Porsche driver, poor acceleration is most commonly caused by spark plug issues. Modern engines have a wide variety of sensors, and if you have a faulty sensor associated with your spark plug, it could cause problems. The problem could be something simple, like a worn-out spark plug that needs replacing. Spark plugs are composed of lots of materials, all of which are needed to produce that spark. As those materials give out, their impact is reduced. So if your car is starting to run slowly or it doesn’t accelerate the way it used to, you may need new spark plugs.

Decreased Fuel Economy

It’s always important to keep an eye on your fuel economy. When your spark plug works properly, you get good fuel economy. When it stops performing properly, usually due to the fact that the gap between your spark plug electrodes has fallen too far apart or has fallen too closely together, you won’t have the same fuel economy that you once did. In fact, most mechanics will take the spark plugs out and examine them before replacing the entire spark plug.

Engine Misfires

If your engine starts misfiring, it is typically some problem in your ignition system like a malfunctioning sensor, but it could also be a problem with your spark plugs. If the spark plug connects to a wire that is damaged, your engine may misfire. This is easily identified by sputtering or stumbling sounds that come out of your engine. This problem also reduces fuel economy and engine power. Because of the related problems, it is imperative that you speak with a mechanic as soon as you notice any engine misfire.

Trouble Starting The Car

If your Porsche is having trouble cranking, your spark plugs could be worn out. As mentioned, though your engine’s ignition system has multiple components, they all have to work together properly in order for your car to run smoothly. At the first sign of an issue, it is important to talk to a certified mechanic before the problem gets worse and impacts more components, and by extension, more of your bank account.

what people say about us

Excellent & timely service – keep up the great job!! =D

Excellent service. Work done on time as promised.

Just got back from having a turn signal bulb replaced… For $133… Bulb is available for $7.98 online, but the intensive training required to unscrew the old bulb and screw in the new one must have been very costly indeed. Was looking for a new place to go for service on my GTI. Got a postcard saying “you don’t have to go to the dealer” As horrible as the dealer is, I very certainly would have been much better off. Oh, and they charged me $80.00 for the bulb! I said that’s some real markup on that and they told me it was 65% markup as they bought it for $25.00… Unbelievable.

You always take good care of my daughters car. Fast reliable and honest service.

Very Professional and Through in their Work. They have my Trust in their recommendations.

Always professional. I’m a 7 year customer. I’ve had several vehicles serviced here and I’ve never had to worry that the work wasn’t done properly.

You are always very helpful to me. Had my car ready on time , the time I said needed it. No loaner cars available but so good of Rayanne and Christie to get me back and forth. Thank you so much.

Thank you for polite and professional service!

Work nicely done at a reasonable price – made recommendations for (necessary!) additional work I hadn’t considered. Left one wire disconnected, but that was promptly and properly corrected. Thanks!

Service at Schearers is always meticulous and professional. The work for which I brought my car in was done well, and an inspection of potential future problems was also undertaken, enabling me to plan for future maintenance to keep my car running smoothly. I am satisfied, as always, with the quality of work and the professionalism of everyone I encountered at Schearers.

Excellent service as usual. Work was done in a timely fashion at a reasonable price. I really like the loaner car arrangement. Mike was very nice to schedule service on the same day and get the necessary parts quickly. Samantha provided a coupon from the internet. Thanks

Friendly service and fair pricing.

Very personable owner/ family. Made us feel comfortable. Explained everything that was necessary for our car upkeep. Prices better than other foreign car dealerships. Car was completed in a timely manner. Will recommend to friends. Thank you

Great experience! From the first call I made and spoke with Kristy to Mike walking me through and explaining what he was going to do. Mike also did an evaluation and let me know what to expect regarding services my car will need in the future. Exceptional customer service from beginning to end, including Samantha taking my payment. I told Mike, I am a customer for life! Well done Scherrers!! Jim Rowlands

The headlight lens cleaning was great. Thanks for suggesting.
