This week saw another typical problem caused by today’s extended servicing periods. A car was bought in to us hesitating and misfiring at times. The cause was diagnosed as worn spark plugs, a pretty easy and not too expensive fix. The issue had been resolved in good time because this is one of the most common causes of catalytic converter failure, a very expensive repair, possibly into the thousands of pounds.
This just goes to show the importance of regular servicing and how these items can be overlooked and cause unnecessary expensive repairs.
The picture shows a new and old spark plug where you can clearly see the iridium tip is badly burnt away.
