There since not everyone is well versed in the domain of spark plugs, there are quite a few myths about them floating around and this blog is aimed to bust a few of them.
If it fits, it will work
This is one of the most common myths about spark plugs. Just because the dimensions of the spark plug happen to be a right fit, it simply does not imply that the spark plug will work as intended. There are numerous factors that come into play about the functionality of the spark plug such as electrodes, temperature range and the materials used to name a few.
More expensive means better
This myth exists for all consumer products, especially when it comes to spark plugs. While it might be true that good quality spark plugs do have premium price tags, but the cost of the spark plugs solely is not a determining factor in its reliability.
The color decides
The myth about the color of the spark plugs is partly true. While it is a norm in the industry to color code the spark plugs in the industry as per their usage and electrodes, this may not always be the case. And unless you are a certified professional, do not stick to the color grading to change or fix your spark plugs.
All spark plugs are the same
It is often the case where we tend to take proper care for our vehicles from a macro perspective but fail to do so on a micro-level. This can lead to lots of problems down the road while ignoring the small but crucial things and spark plugs are one of them. Spark plugs, not only do the job of starting the engine of the vehicle, but they also can affect lots of other factors such as emissions, engine longevity, fuel efficiency etc.
These tiny devices can have a huge impact to start busting the myths and do it by the book.
